- Maintenance of our core server infrastructure which includes helping to scale our back-end services from tens to hundreds of millions of clients
- Support, tuning, maintenance, and documentation of our operating environment including builds, code deployment, and solving problems
- Write, maintain, and expand automation scripts, metrics and monitoring tooling, and orchestration recipes
- Work with product engineering to ensure code is production ready
- Collaboration with QA, Security, and Engineering for coordinated code releases
Your Professional Profile
- Have solid scripting knowledge (shell, Python, JS).
- Some development background with Python, JS, or Go highly preferred.
- Configuration management and orchestration experience. Puppet experience is a plus.
- Experience working with a cloud infrastructure. AWS experience a plus.
- Monitoring / metrics experience, including plug-in/check script writing and modification.
- B.S. in Computer Science would be lovely, but real-world experience is preferred.
