What We're Looking For

We are looking for someone who will lead a team of DevOps Engineers who are passionate about providing unparalleled levels of service and convenience for customers.

Who we are

You'll be joining the Cloud Ops team. A team that oversees all the cloud infrastructure at the company.

We're pushing to run everything on Kubernetes, stateless and stateful workload. We love CRDs and operators, and we also develop our own.

Our SQL core teams work with C++. Our backend teams work with Go, Python, Rust in order to create gRPC microservices exposing REST APIs and GraphQL interface. We are using CockroachDB, FoundationDB, Temporal and Kafka as application infrastructure. Our frontend teams work with TypeScript, React, Redux + Apollo.
