We're looking for a Site Reliability Engineer (Chicago HQ or Remote)

We are a dynamic team of engineers that iterate on ideas and products for a growing company that is dedicated to building meaningful tech communities. Here, we can provide interesting challenges and puzzles to solve as our technical stack rapidly evolves. You will be able to work with new technologies and architectures in a forward-thinking organization that looks to push boundaries.

As a Site Reliability Engineer, you will concentrate on our infrastructure and core services. We want to deliver a stable and responsive experience to our users and customers, and value maintainable and practical construction over band-aids and hacks.

Your job
  • You will work in several technologies:
    • Platforms such as Unix (Linux/MacOS), Terraform, Vault, Docker, Bash, Varnish, Airflow, Memcached, MySQL, ElasticSearch, and Snowflake
    • Languages such as Go, Python, PHP, and Node.js
    • Including HTTP-based, RESTful APIs
  • You will work in a cloud environment (AWS), using various technologies including ECS, DynamoDB, Kinesis, and SQS.
  • You will have a clearly-defined path for growth based around a career framework.
What you need
  • You love working with systems: understanding them, building them, and keeping them healthy.
  • You have a strong background with Unix environments, which can include Linux, BSD, and MacOS (terminal).
  • You have worked with Docker and with some kind of orchestration framework--examples of which include Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Kubernetes.
  • You have programmed with modern backend languages. A list of those includes Go, Rust, and Python.
  • You will have at least 2+ years of experience in an infrastructure role. This could include Site Reliability, but can also include DevOps or Infrastructure.
  • You have worked in a cloud computing environment. This can include Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, and Azure.
  • You love solving puzzles. Maybe that's writing code on personal projects; maybe that's doing thousand-piece jigsaw puzzles; maybe that's Rubik's cubes. You strive to understand how things are put together and why they aren't working.
  • You want to be a part of a team that succeeds as a unit, and you want mentorship from other engineers as much as you want to mentor those engineers yourself.
  • You understand that communication and transparency is vital to being part of any functional team.
We’d love to have you aboard

The team members we’re looking to hire will work out of our office at 203 N LaSalle located in the beautiful city of Chicago.
