  • Have experience with building, operating and troubleshooting large-scale distributed systems spanning multiple data centers across the globe;
  • Strong technical foundation ranging from networking and infrastructure to services and databases;
  • Have a mindset for building sustainable, scalable and resilient long-term solutions;
  • Skilled in one or more programming or scripting languages such as Python, Java or bash;
  • Have a good understanding of Infrastructure as Code and experience with configuration management and automation tools such as Puppet and Ansible

What youโ€™ll do

  • Keep enabling other teams by designing and implementing solutions that improve the reliability and performance of our systems and services;
  • Work on the automation and scalability of existing components of the platform;
  • Be involved in key architectural decisions that determine the future of our platform;
  • Troubleshoot and investigate complex technical issues, being involved from discovery to post-mortem;
  • Together with the team, lead the way in continuously improving our incident management and on-call processes

Our business and technical challenges are unique, and we need as many different voices as possible to join us in solving them - voices like yours.
