Joyent Welcomes Derek Crudgington

Posted on April 22, 2007

Joyent’s system team continues to grow as we continue our quest to provide our customers with the best solutions using the best technology available. In January Mark Mayo, of both Solaris and NetApp fame, came on board, and now we’re pleased to welcome Derek Crudgington, of Solaris fame, to the family. Anyone working with Solaris will have stumbled across Derek’s blog more than once.. at Joyent we ran across it so often we knew that he was someone we needed working with us and excitedly brought aboard.

Taking the latest OpenSolaris innovations and putting them into a customers hands is an exciting task, but living out on the cutting edge isn’t a place for the timid. We need admins that are skilled, passionate, and can think on their feet. I’m really proud of the team we’re building out and fostering the company culture instilled by our CTO, Jason Hoffman, and executing on the vision of our CEO, David Young. This is the place for people who are excited to write the book as they go and make great things happen and I’m really proud to work for Joyent and with such an awesome team.
