    . Looking for the next cool problem to solve, in a fast-paced and engineering-driven environment?

    . Can you write a script or application that performs practically the entire job you once held earlier in your career?

    . Does your idea of a good time involve taking things apart just to see how they work? Are you successful putting them back together when you're done?

    . Can you help achieve increased Availability, Reliability, Uptime, and Quality? (for our systems and services, naturally) If you answered "Yes" to more than three of the above questions, you may have what it takes. Keep reading.

    Google.com Engineers are involved in all aspects of running our site. From design to debug, from architecture to applications, Google.com engineers spend their time troubleshooting problems in large-scale clustered application service environments, and focus on making continual improvements to our services.

    . Experience in a high-volume or critical production service environment.

    . Strong understanding of networking; understanding of how to isolate, diagnose, and resolve service delivery components (service delivery components include servers, networks, and applications); be familiar with the functionality, operating, and failure modes of key networking devices (routers, switches, bridges, firewalls, hardware load balancers); be able to identify networking as the potential cause of a service issue using server-resident tools to generate this data (tcpdump, ping, traceroute, etc.); familiarity in interpreting the output of these tools; familiarity with common network topologies, protocols, and tools; have some notion of common network security exploits -- and their remedies; understanding of troubleshooting at the packet level.

    . Skilled in leading projects, especially in deploying live end-user systems.

    . Proven technical troubleshooting experience.

    . Database administration experience a plus.

    . Programming or debugging of web applications running under Java VM.

    . In-depth knowledge of Linux, networking, and shell scripting.
