Nice People Matter: npm is hiring

We're currently looking for remote operations engineers to cover Pacific night-time. Even if that's not of interest to you, if you think that you are a good fit for our products and culture, and you have noteworthy technical skills, please send an email with evidence of your awesomeness (like your resume, or links to LinkedIn/GitHub/Twitter/whatever) to

We’d like to hear from you.

Remote operations engineer (part-time)

We work hard to make our system reliable and automate as much as possible, but sometimes you need a human to decide what to do, and sometimes you need that human in the middle of the night. This is a serious drain on the productivity of our team in California.

Luckily, the world is round, and it's not night-time everywhere at the same time. So we're looking for an operations engineer located in a time-zone far enough away that they can cover Pacific night time (UTC 0500 to 1500) with ease.

You'll be part of a team of two, working rotating 10-hour shifts, an average of 35 hours per week (some weeks 3 shifts, some weeks 4). Your job is simple: answer when PagerDuty calls, put out any fires, and clean up afterwards in a responsible way (document production changes, enact mitigation plans, etc.). If there are no fires during your shift, you are not required to do anything.

This is the perfect role for somebody looking for some extra cash to support bootstrapping a startup, funding travel, or any of the other fun things you can do with 3.5-day week. We're offering the same generous hourly rate regardless of location.

About npm, Inc.

npm is the package manager for JavaScript. The team is small, and growing quickly. If you join us, you will see the company grow through numerous changes, and take a bunch of different roles.

npm’s mission is to take Open Source development to entirely new places. When everyone else is adding force, we work to reduce friction.

npm is not a typical product, and we are not a typical early-stage “work hard/play hard” startup. We are responsible adults with diverse backgrounds and interests, who take our careers and our lives seriously. We believe that the best way to iterate towards success is by taking care of ourselves, our users, and one another. We aim for a sustainable approach to work and life, because that is the best way to maximize long-term speed, while retaining clarity of vision. Compassion is our strategy.

Our offices are in Oakland, California. We offer very competitive salaries, meaningful equity, and generous health, dental and vision benefits. We love it when you represent us at conferences.
