Platform Engineer

San Francisco, CA

Our Silicon Valley based Start up client is seeking a Senior Platform Engineer. They are backed by one of the leading venture capital companies in the world!

At our client you will integrate advanced cloud functionality into our clients Platform, and help bring production-grade operational efficiency to developers everywhere. You will work closely with our CTO and other engineers, bridging the gap between cloud infrastructure and application development.

Platform Engineering at our client concerns itself primarily with cloud infrastructure tools like Terraform, Kubernetes, Helm, and the various Cloud APIs. However, this is not an SRE or DevOps role. You will write code, not configuration, automating these tools to bring the best of their functionality to teams everywhere.

You will…

  • Work with product engineers to build abstractions in code to interface with APIs and cloud services, and simplify backend systems wherever possible.
  • Work with Kubernetes, IaC, containers, serverless and container orchestration technologies in several cloud environments
  • Define monitoring requirements and implement automated incident resolution solutions.
  • Investigate technical issues scientifically and thoroughly, and assist in fixing them so they don't come back.

We are looking for someone who:

  • Has experience with modern cloud environment like AWS, GCP, and others
  • Thrives in a small team environment, working closely with customer and engineers
  • Has a software engineering mindset - you’ll write code, not configuration, and think about systems first
  • Is deeply familiar with DevOps best practices across a variety of orgs
  • GOLANG is what they use on the back-end. If you do not have GOLANG, Python is fine
  • Some front-end experience (react,typescript etc) Most of the work will be doing back-end coding in GOLANG

Bonus Points

  • Experience building Internal Developer Platforms for large engineering teams
  • Familiar working with cloud providers beyond the Big 3 (AWS, GCP, Azure)
  • Experience with container schedulers and runtimes such as Docker or OCI running on Kubernetes, Rancher, or Mesos
  • Experience building deployment pipelines leveraging common CI/CD tools
  • Experience with Infrastructure-as-Code (e.g. Terraform, CloudFormation, etc)
  • Experience with real-time telemetry and tracing tools like Jaeger and Prometheus
  • Security awareness, with an emphasis on designing for security best practices
  • Experience with diverse runtime environments (Fargate, Firecracker, Lambda, Lambda@Edge, Keta, Docker, K8s)

Projects you might work on:

  • Automatic Canary environments for complete environment rollback testing
  • Scalable networking infrastructure design and automation, compatible across multiple cloud backends
  • Advanced build dependency resolution and optimization
  • Infrastructure recommendation engine to optimize costs, latency, and reliability metrics for web apps
  • Maintain client multi-cloud multi-region infrastructure platform
