The Infrastructure team is nimble, innovative and rapidly growing as it builds out foundational infrastructure relied upon by every data scientist and software engineer at Grand Rounds. We sit at the bottom of the stack, right above AWS, which enables us to build cross-cutting features with maximum reach and impact. Currently, we are bending Kubernetes and Istio to our will to make magic happen for our users.
The Infrastructure team is part of the greater Platform organization with a shared mission to drive engineering velocity. Platform engineers are impactful, high-leverage force-multipliers; we thrive by casually making the entire engineering organization more productive. We work directly with our stakeholders, exercising the right amount of empathy to help define and scope our projects. If you believe that self-organizing, highly autonomous teams build better platforms, then this is the right opportunity for you.
We are fast, hard-working and iterative in nature and consistently optimize for impact. We believe shipping 80% of the value faster and learning is the best way to maximize impact. We also recognize that we won’t get technology, tooling or processes right on our first try and seek ways to continuously improve ourselves. We are looking for smart, self-motivated software engineers at all levels to join our truly exceptional development team.

About You:

  • You care about software and are proud of what you do; to you it’s more than a job.
  • You optimize for impact over progress and love getting stuff done (GSD).
  • You are an exceptional problem solver utilizing first-principles thinking.
  • You get a rush when you improve the productivity and remove barriers from fellow engineers.
  • You love working outside of your usual comfort zone and are motivated by personal growth.
  • You have a solid understanding of Linux systems, networking and distributed systems.
  • You have strong programming skills, CS fundamentals and a track record of implementing highly reliable software. However, a formal CS degree is not required.

What You Will Do:

  • Write highly impactful infrastructure software in Golang.
  • Plan and lead ambitious technical projects that interact with a wide variety of teams within the company.
  • Build cross-cutting features in the dataplane by using and extending state of the art service mesh technologies.
  • Design systems that will span multiple AWS regions to enable high availability of the platform.
  • Promote DevOps best practices across teams.

Bonus Points:

  • Golang Hacker
  • Experience with Kubernetes, Istio and Docker
  • Design or operation of robust distributed systems.
  • Experience with AWS cloud infrastructure and its alphabet soup of technologies including EKS, RDS, Auto ScalingGroups, ALB/ELB, IAM.
