Job Description: 

CaptivateIQ, the agile commission solution, enables companies to consistently align revenue teams with evolving business goals. 

Combining flexibility with ease of use, CaptivateIQ offers the ability to build any commission plan, save time in payout processing, and motivate sales reps to achieve revenue targets through real-time visibility.

We’ve grown over 3x by all measures in the past year – including revenue, customers, and employees – and we’re searching for more great folks such as yourself to help us transform the world of commission management.

About the role

The Site Reliability Engineering team in CaptivateIQ operates horizontally across the engineering organization, supporting our development teams by providing them with the tools and processes they need to operate in a frictionless manner. We provide the infrastructure needed to run our production platform, and are responsible for the reliable and secure operation of that platform. We own the observability that will give us prior warning of impending issues, and will take the necessary action to mitigate those issues. 

The team are passionate, driven, forward-thinking engineers, who take as much pride in problem prevention as they do in problem solving. We are passionate about technology and innovation, and continually strive to be aware of the latest solutions the industry has to offer. Automation and infrastructure-as-code enable us to put efficient, repeatable processes in place, and we have the flexibility and foresight needed for us to ensure we are working where we are needed most. 

We strive to be excellent communicators who understand the value of cooperation with stakeholders, and the importance of information sharing. We have the capability to develop expertise in areas we are less familiar with and the ability to share that knowledge with the rest of the team.
