  • Apply software engineering and SRE principles while leveraging infrastructure automation tools to build, maintain, monitor and operate complex infrastructure
  • You understand scalable web architectures and cloud technologies
  • Someone who loves to code, and you enjoy working in multiple programming languages. We primarily work with Python, Ruby, PHP, and Puppet (for configuration management)
  • You drive issues to completion, marshaling resources in high-pressure situations

Who you are:

Our ideal candidate possesses some or all the following skills:

  • 4+ years of experience in building software for, operating, or supporting large Linux based web application environments
  • Bachelor's degree in CS, EE, SW, CE or MIS; or equivalent experience
  • An excellent communicator, who works well with geographically distributed teams such as ours (we are split between Austin, Kyiv, San Francisco, and Sydney)
  • You're obsessive compulsive, in a good way. Your systems and scripts are clean, well-documented and comprehensible
  • You have a passion for learning when it comes to working with new technologies or languages.
  • Experience with UNIX systems administration, including solid scripting skills in Python, Ruby, PHP, or Bash
  • Experience running Docker with some kind of orchestration system such as Nomad (we use Nomad), Kubernetes, or Amazon ECS
  • Knowledge of configuration management systems such as Ansible, Chef, or Puppet (we use Puppet)
  • Experience with observability and application performance monitoring (APM) tools such as ELK, Prometheus, New Relic, Sentry and Lightstep

Position Work Options:

  • This position can be fully remote, based in Austin, Texas or based in San Francisco, California
