The Job

Justworks is seeking a Site Reliability Engineer to join our Payments and Tax Unit (PTU) team. You will be focused on the health and reliability of the servers and systems that are used by PTU. As the team whose mission is to process payments and payroll taxes accurately and on time, PTU is responsible for mission critical operations that are crucial to Justworks. As a successful candidate, you have demonstrated the ability to build, deploy and maintain large-scale, distributed applications.

  • Define the strategy for the platform our engineers build on top of, and work across teams to improve, scale, and better utilize it
  • Add capabilities to our high-volume, fault-tolerant processing infrastructure
  • Take ownership of designing and developing tools focused on observability, performance, and developer velocity
  • Enhance our testing, monitoring and continuous deployment infrastructure
  • Keep extremely sensitive data compartmentalized and secure

Who you are

  • Minimum of 3 years of professional hands-on experience
  • Strong systems architecture and coding/scripting skills
  • Experience working with complicated systems at scale
  • Solid understanding of data structures and algorithms

Technologies We Use

  • Ruby on Rails, Javascript/React, Redux, MySQL, AWS, Git
  • ElasticSearch, Docker, InfluxDB, Redshift, Jenkins, Nagios
