Who We Want to Work With (You)
- Are looking to invest your time, passion, and skill to make a difference that lasts.
- Have a passion for what we do and why we do it, and show up each day ready to elevate the team and our vision.
- Are hungry for knowledge, ready for a challenge, excited to learn new things and tackle big problems.
- Don't get queasy when change happens. (Change happens a lot around here! It's one way we stay ahead of issues and setbacks: anticipate them and find ways to adapt and win.)
- Are self-aware, willing to acknowledge what you don't know (and are ready to improve), and confident in your strengths (and can figure out how those can serve the team and our customers).
- Lean into feedback and coaching (we do-- it's how we grow better, together).
- Are a problem solver who prides yourself in high-value output, rather than checking boxes on a list or burning down the clock.
- Are respectful, generally kind, and enjoyable to be around. We find that assuming good intent makes for a stronger team – and winning as an individual but losing as a team is losing in our eyes.
- Are others-oriented with a desire to win collectively, and win big!
- Develop, deploy, and maintain scalable distributed systems and their infrastructure
- Instrument, monitor, and optimize performance KPIs that matter to our production infrastructure and release pipelines
- Work with the engineering team to maintain security and scalability
- Work with the CTO and other leaders to achieve business objectives
- Architect scalable web infrastructure
- Manage the engineering on-call rotation
- Monitor and improve performance in all areas of the stack
- Be passionate about our team, our users, and the quality of our software
- 2+ years of professional experience building web application back-ends
- 2+ years of professional experience in an ops, devops, or site reliability role
- Excellent at communication within an engineering org (engineering, product, leadership)
- Deep experience with Python or a breadth of experience with modern languages
- Deep experience with modern "infrastructure as code" tooling (Kubernetes, Docker, Helm, Terraform, etc)
- Ability to synthesize overarching business objectives into granular infrastructure goals and make constant progress against them
- Highly skilled in identifying performance bottlenecks and resolving service issues with root cause analysis
- Able to work in the United States
