More about you

  • We'd love it if you have an extensive background in developing and operating large-scale cloud-based distributed applications - with direct experience developing/running services on AWS and are well-versed in best practices and patterns.
  • We will want you to have a laser focus on designing infrastructure solutions for scalability, reliability, high availability, performance, security, software maintainability, and operational excellence. If you're good with "fixing the plane while in flight" (not just greenfield solutions), you will be right for this role.
  • You will possess the ability to prioritize existing technical and infrastructure debt and build and execute a plan to pay it off.
  • You will be expected to work with others to drive alignment between architecture projects and product roadmap. You will have the ability to ask tough questions, have a principled but also pragmatic approach to decision-making, have stellar written and verbal communication abilities (that also means skilled interactions with developers and non-technical people alike).
  • You will have the opportunity to leverage your deep understanding of technologies like Elasticsearch, Redis, RDS, MongoDB, Python and Java. You have experience with running secure and scalable applications for highly available, multi-region, AWS deployments.
  • You're also the type that loves to teach others and be hands on yourself. Finally you are an effective communicator, able to articulate your technical and architectural know-how in a way that will influence the engineering teams towards a united vision and goal, understanding that building incredible software cannot be done in isolation but together as one team.
