Koumbit is looking to hire a new member of our systems administration and infrastructure team at 25 hours per week. The hourly rate is $21, with an expected starting date in May 2020, with some flexibility.
In order to maximize the effects of closing public spaces and to contribute to protecting all from the spread of the COVID-19 virus (which has been labeled a pandemic by WHO on March 11), we believe it is also the responsibility of Koumbit's team to avoid using public transit and physical contact for the next weeks.
Koumbit's office, including the telephone support line, will be closed Monday, March 9, 2020 to highlight International Women's Day on March 8. As always, our on-call team will reply to any emergencies. The office will be open again on the Tuesday, March 10.
In case you had not noticed, we recently updated our "Portfolio" section on our website with a few recent projects that our web development team worked on.
We approached each project like a "case study" which allows us to highlight the skillsets of our members, for example:
At the beginning of January, some clients of Koumbit were victims of attacks aiming to silence them by making their website inaccessible, leading to some network performance issues. First, we want to highlight that this type of attack does not involve any data leak. Second, as Koumbit workers, we want to explain how these attacks could affect you, and what are our solutions to deal with them.
Koumbit will be closed from the 23rd of December, 2019 through the 3rd of January, 2020 including the telephone support line. Happy Holidays to all!
As always, our "on-call" team will be respond to any emergencies. The office will be open again Monday, January 6th, 2020..

We will be changing which host key types the server redmine.koumbit.net (aka. git.koumbit.net) shows to users connecting via SSH. Starting Monday Feburary 18th 2019 only RSA and ED25519 host keys will be shown. If you had previously connected via SSH and accepted a DSA or ECDSA key, you will need to remove those fingerprints from your known hosts file and accept the RSA/ED25519 host key fingerprint.
Here is an example of how to remove the fingerprints via command-line:
