Responsibilities and Qualifications 

What you will do

* Own technical operations for systems that manage hundreds of thousands of CPU cores

* Build observability for new deployments to ensure robustness from day one, as well as mature deployments to identify and implement improvements

* Design, develop, and deploy cloud-based replacements for legacy bare-metal installations

* Dig into issues with block devices, file descriptors, and packet loss; lead real-time outage investigations and present postmortems to senior management


What you have

* Comfort in a programming language: we're primarily Python 3 and Go -- with some Scala and Erlang, interest in Rust -- but believe in the best tool for the job and care about analytical thinking more than specific syntax familiarity

* Tales of tcpdump and strace: our modern code leverages Jaeger/OpenTracing to ease debugging, but first-principles Linux systems and networking knowledge is a must

* Interest in SLOs/SLIs: continually executing an application's "typical user journey" to store health metrics in a time-series database is invaluable for us and has support from the C-suite

* Curiosity: no hesitation before consulting the source or ssh'ing to an unfamiliar machine (or a thousand) when documentation is insufficient or charts don't make sense; "if a human built this, a human can figure it out"

* Pragmatism: desire for long-term strategic ideals paired with awareness of when it's appropriate for immediate-term fixes to add tech debt
