About the Role

We continue to expand our highly talented Infrastructure teams and are seeking a software developer with production operations experience to join us.

Candidates with an operations (DevOps/SysOps/TechOps) background who have supported infrastructure at scale, and internal tools developers are also encouraged to apply for this role. If you are a firm believer in Infrastructure as Code, continuous deployment/delivery practices, and sustainably automating tasks, then you might be a great fit!

  • Further automating initial resource setup in public clouds, applying necessary guardrails and ensuring existing tools can take advantage of the new capabilities

  • Assisting teams migrating workloads to Kubernetes infrastructure with minimal service degradation or downtime

  • Developing internal services to augment existing observability, monitoring and alerting capabilities, reducing toil and improving response time and quality. Your work will enable proactive actions rather than responding after the fact.

  • Enhancing continuous deployment system for R&D teams to release a wide variety of products, including web interfaces, backend APIs, high-throughput network services and scheduled maintenance tasks written in a variety of programming languages

Required Skills and Experience

  • Have designed, built, run and maintained distributed, scalable systems in AWS

  • Observability, monitoring, metrics and alerting (eg: Prometheus, Thanos, AlertManager, Grafana)

  • Containers and orchestration (eg: Docker, containerd, Kubernetes)

  • Networking (on-premises, AWS VPC and related concepts)

Your Responsibilities

  • Maintain, improve and advocate for the Infrastructure-as-Code platform supporting our product

  • Collaborate with the rest of R&D to design highly-scalable, observable, cost-effective and performant systems

  • Provide “paved road” tooling and practices for consistent software deployment, improving service delivery

Employment Requirements:

Each successful candidate will be required to pass a criminal background check and an employment verification as a condition of employment.
