DeviantArt was created to entertain, inspire, and empower the artist in all of us and today is the leading destination on the Internet for creativity and the arts.  Our DevOps team is small because we automate as much as possible and build tools when they don't already exist.

Have experience with Puppet, Cacti, and/or other cluster management software.
Understand relational databases (MySQL, etc.).
Have used compilers/linkers/build tools.
Know how to use strace, gdb, tcpdump, etc.
Have compiled your own kernel.
Have a good sense of humor.
Are always thinking "What happens if this fails?"
Like to document things.

Here's some recent work that DevOps has done:

Built a deployment system based on Git, Buildbot, and Puppet.
Virtualized a large amount of our infrastructure with KVM.
Migrated from Cacti to Graphite.
Rolled out an Elasticsearch + Logstash + Kibana cluster for log analysis.
