Animoto is building a Systems (DevOps) Team.

Animoto is building a Systems (DevOps) Team. You¹ve heard of Animoto because we were the original "poster child" for Cloud Computing (back in the day).  We have a solid business model, lots of customers, and lots of awards. We've partnered with Bon Jovi, Adobe, SmugMug, Pepsi and more.  We hope to acquire Google next year. We're telling you this because we¹re looking for a few talented individuals to help keep our services running smoothly. Specifically, the systems group is hiring. The systems group provides the behind-the-scenes services that nobody thinks about: infrastructure and services for the developers and designers who make our site.
