Through building tools and products for other engineers, our infrastructure team acts as a team multiplier - think auto-scaling, horizontal sharding, scalable storage systems, application performance monitoring, and more. We are in the early phases of building out our next generation cells architecture that will support a scale orders of magnitude what we can today. Curious? Talk to us, we’d love to tell you more.

We are able to hire remotely in France, the UK, Ireland, and Poland.

What will you be doing?

  • Design and implement a new Kubernetes staging environment that engineers can spin up in under a minute

  • Build tools to scale developer workflows for a >50 person engineering team, for example, schema migration automation tool to run online MySQL migrations across a large number of production database shards

  • Building blocks of our next generation cells architecture, a precursor to an on-premise solution

  • Troubleshoot and resolve low-level bugs and issues, e.g. memcached throughput exceeding AWS caps, network partitions in our AWS VPC

What skills and experience do you need?

  • Product mindset – we’re a product company on a mission to “advance how people work” 

  • 5+ years of industry experience building highly available, large-scale distributed systems at a large-scale internet service

  • 2+ years of working on software systems built atop Amazon Web Services

  • Fluency in a dynamic language like Javascript, Python, Ruby, or similar

  • Strong track record of launching and delivering projects of significant complexity and high level of ambiguity

  • Experience architecting, deploying and operating asynchronous work queues, high-volume storage systems, high-throughput systems: you should not be afraid of writing code that will decide to start or stop 1000 servers

  • Understand the trade-offs in employing different engineering solutions to a problem, valuing pragmatism over idealism

  • Ability to thrive in a dynamic, fast-paced, collaborative, and high-growth environment

  • Full professional English proficiency

Bonus

  • Experience as a tech-lead of an infrastructure team

  • Experience scaling data stores such as MySQL and Elasticsearch

  • Advanced Linux systems engineering skills

  • Experience with Kubernetes and Docker
