Software Heritage is hiring: seeking a Paris-based full-time system administrator

[Software Heritage](https://www.softwareheritage.org/) is an ambitious
nonprofit, entirely Free/Open Source Software (FOSS) project that aims
at collecting, organizing, preserving for the very long term, and
sharing all publicly available software in source code form, together
with the corresponding complete development history (e.g., from a
Version Control System) where available.  The Software Heritage archive
already contains about 3 billion unique source code files and 700
million commits, retrieved from more than 50 million software projects.

We are looking for a senior GNU/Linux system administration to grow our
operations team, which is critical to the success of the project. The
team is in charge of guaranteeing reliability of our day-by-day
archiving activities, integrity of the Software Heritage archive in
collaboration with mirror operators, and maintaining an efficient
development environment for our developers.

As senior system administrator you will primarily work with the
following technologies:

* Debian GNU/Linux
* Puppet
* PostgreSQL
* POSIX shell scripting
* Icinga/Munin-based systems and network monitoring
* KVM virtualization, LXC containers

Working knowledge of the following techniques and technologies would be
a plus:

* Debian packaging
* IaaS/PaaS "cloud" offerings
* Python programming
* C system programming

A successful candidate will have strong system administrator skills,
programming fluency in at least a couple of system- and/or
application-level programming languages, as well as a solid track record
of participation in existing FOSS projects and communities.

All the code developed as part of this position will be
[developed openly and released under a FOSS license](https://www.softwareheritage.org/community/developers/).

Workplace and salary

The job must be worked on-site
at [Inria's Paris headquarters](https://www.inria.fr/en/centre/paris).

The salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.

All materials must be in a free format (such as plain text, PDF, or
