Senior Linux System Administrator

Who Are We? TrueCar, Inc. is a revolutionary Internet company with a mission to reinvent how cars are bought and sold. We’re a bunch of driven industry leaders, entrepreneurs and technology hotshots, and we like to play as hard as we work. Located just blocks from the beach in Santa Monica, CA, our two divisions, Zag and, are currently growing like crazy and we are looking for energetic new talent.

Why Zag and Truecar? Because we offer an environment full of great people doing Big Things and we were recently named the 2nd fastest growing company in LA by the Los Angeles Business Journal as well as #209 on the 2011 Inc. 500 list of Fastest Growing Companies in America.

Who Are We Looking For? Right now, we’re looking for a Senior Linux Systems Administrator who will be involved from the design stage through production troubleshooting, from DNS to networking to application behavior and ultimately responsible for making sure our production systems are reliable and perform well.


• Redhat Linux administration, including configuration, troubleshooting, and automation.

• Capacity planning, troubleshooting, and monitoring of our VMware-virtualized Linux systems, EMC SAN, Cisco-based network, Netscaler load balancers, and Java-based applications.

• Analysis of complex system behavior, performance, and application issues.


• BA/BS in Computer Science preferred, or equivalent experience.

• At least 5 years of experience with Linux/UNIX system administration.

• IP networking, including the functionality, operating, and failure modes of networks.

• Proven technical troubleshooting and performance tuning experience.

• Experience in a high-volume or critical production environment with responsibility for at least 20 Linux/UNIX servers.

• Ability to handle periodic on-call duty.

We get that this skill set doesn’t come cheap. So of course we offer a highly competitive salary and a wealth of great benefits including company equity, 100% paid family medical, dental, vision, and a healthy 401k. Add that to an environment with world class leadership, explosive growth, passion for fun, and great work.

Still want more? Our ever-evolving, personalized and employee specific perks like gym reimbursements, referral and patent bonuses and incentive programs are constantly being re-evaluated to keep our employees happy and motivated.
