DevOps Engineer

Redwood City

This position is for people who think DevOps is more than a buzzword.

You must be comfortable building internal deployment tooling one day, debugging a tricky performance issue the next day, and automating our infrastructure the day after that. You understand the pain of running a large scale system, and why striving for simplicity is important. You monitor. You measure. You sweat the details. You have strongly held opinions about config management.

Your team will own

    • Site reliability engineering: You will make sure our core infrastructure systems are humming along nicely.
    • Managing our Docker and Mesos infrastructure
    • Scaling and managing our data pipelines which includes Kafka, Cassandra, RabbitMQ, Redis, ElasticSearch and MongoDB
    • DevOps reliability - making our continuous integration and continuous delivery platforms even better
    • Developing and managing our alerting and monitoring platforms
    • Developing internal tooling to make our engineers (and you) more efficient

Important attributes

    • A strong Unix (ideally not just Linux) background
    • Experience with databases - ideally more than one, and running a new(ish) key-value or document store (Mongo, Riak, Cassandra, and so on) is a strong plus
    • Debugging experience, particularly in diagnosing performance issues
    • Familiarity with monitoring and alerting tools, and an understanding why they’re important
    • Experience running a large-ish distributed system: you have felt the pain of running an SOA / microservice architecture
    • A positive attitude, willingness to learn, and desire for self-improvement

Bonus points for

    • C or C++ experience
    • AWS experience
    • Experience with configuration management tools, particularly Ansible
    • An understanding of CAP theorem and a familiarity with consensus algorithms
    • An understanding of Event-Sourcing / CQRS architectures
    • Experience with blameless post-mortems
