About the Position

As a DevOps Engineer, you will work with the DevOps and product teams to identify and manage constraints in the delivery of high-quality software at a fast pace. We are striving for the ambitious goal of multiple releases per day from trunk with tight feedback loops so that we can foster an environment of experimentation. We write Infrastructure as Code by default, encourage a culture of “scratching your own itch”, believe in documentation through code, and envision infrastructure that can be modified during business hours without disruption.

 

Responsibilities include:

  • Make high-value impacts on productivity throughout the software development lifecycle
  • Enhance and maintain DevOps-sponsored tools and infrastructure
  • Work on small feature teams as a DevOps consultant and/or contributor

 

Skill and Experience Requirements:

  • Linux (RedHat and/or Debian-based distros)
  • Python (we use 3.6 - moving from 2.7)
  • Building software at scale (incremental build system like Bazel is a plus)
  • Automated testing at scale (from unit to system)
  • Docker
  • Cloud provisioning (we use AWS EC2, EKS, and S3 extensively)
  • Continuous Integration platforms (we use Jenkins)
  • Provisioning at scale (we use Terraform and Kubernetes)
  • Deploying at scale (we use Ansible)

 

Other Desired Skills

  • Container orchestration (we use Kubernetes)
  • Monitoring (e.g., Datadog, Logstash, Netdata, Prometheus)
  • Data-streaming platforms (e.g., Kafka, Kinesis)
  • Traditional relational databases (e.g., MySQL) and modern analytic databases (e.g., MemSQL, Influx, ElasticSearch, Redis)
  • LXD
  • RPM and Debian packaging
  • Securing distributed, micro-service applications
  • JavaScript
  • Java
  • C++
  • Go
