Do you love the Archive? Do you have skills in database analysis? Would you like to make these great two tastes taste great together?

We're looking for a MySQL database developer who can help us optimise our database performance on the Archive of Our Own. The Archive is run on MySQL 5.0 and Rails 3, but you don't need to know Rails to help -- we would really like someone who can look over our database query logs and help us spot inefficiencies!

You'd be joining a team of dedicated and passionate volunteers with a love of fandom and tech-geekery. We're looking for someone with the time and skills to help us evaluate and optimise our current setup — this can be a short-term commitment, although if you are able to join us for the long haul your skills will be very welcome.

If you're interested, please contact our Volunteers and Recruitment Committee using 'MySQL database developer' as your subject line, and let us know your skills and experience.

Your Archive needs YOU!
