Infrastructure Engineer

San Francisco, CA
R&D – Engineering
Full-time
About the Role:

Our team is looking for an Infrastructure Engineer who will own our data access layer and the business logic around it. We want someone who is intimately familiar with service architectures, frets about versioning libraries, and is passionate about performance.

Our users build some of the most amazing construction projects in the world, and our apps are used every day in the field.

We are open to remote engineers

As an Infrastructure Engineer at PlanGrid, you will:

    • Design and implement services which can be leveraged by teams throughout the PlanGrid engineering community
    • Review key architectural changes across the organization and participate heavily in the Engineering Change Proposal process
    • Assist in re-architecting and implementing critical business logic for performance and scalability
    • Lead by example in code and quality, and participate heavily in the code review process
    • Work with SRE team to address performance bottlenecks in shared infrastructure and execute large architecture changes
    • Build tools and communicate best practices for development and PlanGrid
    • Assist in hiring, provide mentorship, and work with an amazing team of engineers
    • Communicate changes and technical decisions to other engineers via documentation and tech talks
    • Help decide future of APIs, libraries, and services orchestration

Our Infrastructure Engineers:

    • Have no fear crossing the boundaries of code and systems. We jump between shipping high-quality production code in Python and working directly with Salt. We embrace automation and take pride in building tools to help engineers be more efficient.
    • Solve challenges involving scaling, reliability, high availability, data pipelines, and more. We build and scale applications using Python, Kubernetes, RabbitMQ, Docker, Redis, Postgres, Elastic search, Salt, and more. We change the wheels on the bus while it's running.
    • Live for efficiency and redundancy. Our systems reflect our processes reflect our people reflect our systems. We automate as much as possible in the cloud and in the office.
    • Hate "snowflakes." Standards, automation, and consistency are the key to smart scaling.
    • Love learning and thrive on hard problems. Low hanging fruit is fun, but hard problems are really what keep us going. Persistence and dedication to push through sticky situations are key.
    • Are patient, welcoming, considerate, and respectful. Our team is built on these values, and we expect all new members to be the same.
