Coffee Meets Bagel 


Coffee Meets Bagel's mission is to give everyone a chance at love. Instead of asking you to swipe through infinite profiles, our smart algorithm curates only your best matches and sends them to you once daily. Our "slow dating" approach emphasizes savoring each real connection—and even finding delight in the journey. Globally, CMB has sparked thousands of lasting relationships. We were named one of the "Top 10 Dating Apps" by Time Magazine, and "Best App If You're Trying to Marie Kondo Your Dating Life" by Women's Health. Do you have a relentless drive to ‘get it done’ and build things that work 24/7? Are you up for a new challenge that will have you thinking outside of the box every day? If so, Coffee Meets Bagel is looking for an experienced Devops Engineer like you.

Because most of our users use the app right at noon, we are faced with unique challenges and need to create infrastructure that can scale quickly and efficiently. As the DevOps Engineer, you will be responsible for keeping production stable and proactively identifying performance issues. This includes tracking statistics and managing alerts to deploying new hosts and debugging complex production issues. This is an important role that will call for you to be the first one to respond to outages and help the team understand the solutions to these incidents. You will have the technical and creative freedom to pursue the best solution for a specific product as you help manage the growth of our changing infrastructure. As an engineer for our engineers, you should be passionate about automation and be able to deliver a reliable and reproducible product. As part of our engineering team, we want you to help define our technology strategy and come up with solutions for our unique scalability and performance challenges to keep things running optimally 24/7 every day of the year.
Experience in every area is helpful, but not strictly required. Bringing years of experience in getting things done is valued above all else-- if you are willing to work hard, move fast, and share our passion to help CMB succeed, we want to talk to you!
