Job Description

Do you love the cloud and enjoy working with databases and containerized services? We are looking for an experienced infrastructure engineer and technical leader to join our architecture team. You will help design and implement our managed infrastructure layer and tooling that our developers use daily to build, deploy, and troubleshoot services accepting terabytes of traffic each day.

What your playground will look like:

  • A hybrid data center/cloud environment accepting over 70 billion HTTP requests a day from our customers.
  • Linux, Kubernetes, Traefik, RDS, MySQL, Go and that’s just the beginning of the technologies in our stack.

  • Help teams choose the right tools for the job at hand and utilize the chosen technologies efficiently.
  • Communicate, communicate, communicate: Architects serve as the connective tissue between teams and organizations for all technical matters.

Your Qualifications

If you are ready for this role, you have spent years building or supporting large distributed systems in the cloud and know how to design and roll out tooling, while also documenting it for others to understand. You keep up on tech trends and have open conversations with members of the team.


  • Experience working with one of the major cloud providers

  • Solid understanding of databases (RDS, MySQL, PostgreSQL)
  • 8+ years of technical leadership helping engineering teams thrive
  • Ability to collaborate and impact decisions at the interpersonal level
