FreshBooks has been helping our clients take the pain out of invoicing since 2004. We're a small team working towards a common goal: building a kick-ass online invoicing application to help small businesses better manage their finances.

It does get busy around here, so you'll need plenty of energy!

We need you to have:

  • Experience building or maintaining a high-performance, highly-available Linux/Apache/MySQL environment
  • Thorough understanding of networking concepts and firewalls
  • Programming experience in sh, and in a dynamic language like PHP or Perl
  • Hands-on experience implementing secure servers and networks
  • Experience maintaining Windows or OS X desktops
  • Demonstrated proficiency communicating with users, developers, and upper management
  • Attention to detail, ability to work without close supervision and a passion for professional system administration practice

We hope you have:
  • A working knowledge of Web 2.0
  • Familiarity with configuration management and source control systems
  • Experience with PCI DSS compliance
  • Experience with office phone systems
  • Informed tastes in coffee and beer
  • Excellent writing skills, and a hankering to blog
