Requirements
  • You want to be appreciated and recognized for your work and not be another cog in the machine
  • You know that the infrastructure must suit the product. You want to understand the domain so you can pick the right tool for the job
  • You prefer managed services to self-hosted solutions where possible
  • You care deeply about best practices for code quality, automation, and testing
  • You have a genuine desire to help other engineers via mentorship, pairing, and code reviews. Our #eng-asking-for-a-friend channel has an average response time of under 15 minutes and is a blame-free environment
  • You are a doer - when you see a problem that needs to be tackled, you deliver incrementally and plan ahead. You have an appetite for learning and embrace ambiguity; you don't easily give up
  • Asynchronous communication is second nature to you. You express complex ideas in an easy-to-understand and respectful manner - both in spoken and written language
  • You have proficiency or familiarity with some of modern Java (or other JVM languages) or Python
  • You have experience with cloud infrastructure providers, preferably Google Cloud Platform
  • You have experience with Kubernetes and Terraform
  • There's a good chance we didn't get this right! Like with many other things in life, this job description is a work in progress. We'd love to hear from you and what would make you a great fit in our engineering team!
Responsibilities
  • Design, analyze, and troubleshoot the fundament that Alloy is built on, and continue improving it
  • Work on critical internal and externally-visible systems
  • Scale systems sustainably and evolve them by pushing for reliability and velocity with Kubernetes on top of Google Cloud
  • Manage our production, testing environments, CI/CD pipelines, disaster recovery strategy, etc
  • Implement observability and security best practices in a SOC 2 compliant environment
  • Write infrastructure as code with Terraform
  • Engage with services before they go live and help setting them on the right path
  • Isolate environments to make them more resilient. We accept that bugs will happen and prepare our systems accordingly
  • Build developer tools that streamline our engineering workflows and empower the engineering team with our in-house built "ore" script suite
  • Occasionally contribute code to the application if you see a chance to improve it
  • Be loved by all departments for the magic you create. We know that if it works, it's because you've done an excellent job
