Software Engineer,

This position is available in Mountain View, CA and Dublin, Ireland.

Are you part ace coder, part adrenaline junkie? Do you have a knack for
seeing a problem and immediately discerning the likely solution? Maybe you
have been coding for years, are bored with the old
design-build-review-test-ship-repeat routine, and yearn for some
faster-paced challenges? Or perhaps you are a seasoned software engineer who
is also a genius at jockeying networks and administering UNIX clusters.

We are looking for top-notch, thrill-seeking Software Engineers to join the Engineering team. Engineers are in the thick of
everything involved with keeping Google running, from code-level
troubleshooting of service anomalies to safeguarding the availability of our
most popular services; from monitoring and response to building new
automation infrastructure to balancing the desire for change management with
the need for stability. All team members must have strong analytical and
troubleshooting skills, fluency in coding, good communication skills and
most of all enthusiasm for tackling the complex problems of scale which are
uniquely Google. We tackle challenging, novel situations every day, and work
with just about every other engineering and operations team at Google in the

In this role you will need:

distributed systems.

analyze network behavior, performance and application issues using standard
tools like tcpdump.


* 0-15 years experience.
* 3+ years developing web-based applications.
* Expertise in data structures, algorithms, and complexity analysis.
* Fluency in one or more of: C, C++, Java.
* Fluency in one of more of: Shell, PHP, Perl or Python.
* Ability to handle periodic on-call duty, as well as out-of-band
* Solid working knowledge of UNIX, preferably Linux.
* Tack-sharp analytical abilities.
* A strong sense of ownership, urgency, and drive.
* Fluent written communication and unusual verbal agility are strong
* SQL experience a plus, MySQL a plus.
* Experience leading short projects involving outside teams is a plus.
* BA/BS in Computer Science, MS or PhD is preferred.


Unix System / Applications Administrator,

This position is available in Mountain View, CA and Dublin, Ireland.

Are you:

* ...a seasoned Unix jockey, database wizard, performance specialist,
networking guru, and code slinger all rolled into one?
* ...looking for the next cool problem to solve, in a fast-paced and
engineering-driven environment?
* ...into writing scripts which perform practically the entire job you
once held earlier in your career?
* ...entertained in your off hours by taking things apart just to see
how they work? Are you successful putting them back together when you're
* ...excited by the idea of making Google even faster, more reliable,
more available, more - well, Googly?

If you answered "Yes" to more than three of the above questions, you may be
our kind of System Admin! Keep reading. team members are involved in every facet of Google's production
site. From design issues to troubleshooting, from performance analysis to
capacity planning, from DNS to networking to application [mis]behavior, engineers are ultimately responsible for making sure that Google
always works. We take that responsibility very very seriously, but if you
think you've got what it takes then we're eager to talk with you.

Working in the team, you will wear many hats for Google's entire
production site: first responder, performance analyst, service architect,
system/database administrator, capacity planner, tools developer, monitoring
expert, and technical evangelist.

In this role you will need:

* Expertise in UNIX system administration, including configuration,
troubleshooting, and automation.
* Fluency in at least one scripting/coding language.
* Experience running high-traffic web services, including requirements
and capacity analysis, service configuration, monitoring and
troubleshooting, and change management.
* Strong understanding of IP networking, including familiarity with the
functionality, operating, and failure modes of common networking devices,
and the ability to analyze network behavior, performance and application
issues using standard tools like tcpdump.


* 3 - 5 years experience with UNIX systems administration (5-15 years
for Senior position).
* Solid scripting skills in Shell, PHP, Perl or Python.
* Proven technical troubleshooting and performance tuning experience.
* Experience in a high-volume or critical production service
* Ability to handle periodic on-call duty as well as out-of-band
* Tack-sharp analytical abilities.
* A strong sense of ownership, urgency, and drive.
* Fluent written communication and unusual verbal agility are strong
* SQL experience a plus, MySQL a plus.
* Experience leading short projects involving outside teams is a plus.
* BA/BS in Computer Science or related field, or equivalent experience.

Sophos Anti Virus 5.0 on RHEL 4

Pheww, dah lama tak menulis... Semalam dengan jayanya menginstall Sophos Anti Virus (SAV) 5.0 di mesin RHEL 4 nie. Sepatutnya dah lama aku install tapi hanya semalam baru berminat, antara faktor utama aku install:
  • Kebolehan on-access scanning atau kekadang dikenali sebagai real-time scanning
  • Web-based GUI untuk configuration

Well, sayang sekali coz RHEL 4 tak disokong untuk melakukan on-access scanning secara default. Ini disebabkan oleh modul Talpa yang mungkin perlu dikompil semula coz aku tak guna OS yang disokong.

Sophos Anti-Virus for Linux, version 5.0: using a custom built or unsupported kernel

Web-based GUI pula cuma untuk edit configuration & baca log sahaja, nothing else.
