Tumblr architecture?

In what programming language and language framework is Tumblr written?

My wild guess would be Ruby on Rails, but I have no idea. Does anybody know for sure what Tumblr uses?

Looks like PHP (plus various backend stuff), based on who they're hiring.

That may be right. Also, I cracked up at the last bullet point on that page, "We'll offer you: An interview without math puzzles or brain teasers."

It's PHP. Here's a blog entry by their lead developer about the framework they use(d).
