At Netlify, we’re building a platform to empower digital designers and developers to build better, more elaborate web projects than ever before. We’re aiming to change the landscape of modern web development.
The mission of our platform engineers is to scale Netlify’s microservices infrastructure for the next million users.
Our main office is located in the Dogpatch district in San Francisco, CA, however, 40% of our company is distributed around the world.
Some of the challenges you’ll be working on:
Scale our infrastructure to handle hundreds of thousands of request per second.
Increase observability, reliability, and monitoring of all Netlify’s systems.
Build internal tools to help us managing, releasing, and scaling our own applications.
Automate our incident responses and scale-up procedures.
Develop deployment pipelines for services running in Kubernetes.
Build internal tools for reliably releasing immutable infrastructure using Terraform, Ansible, and Packer.
Grow the system's global footprint to include different cloud providers.
You’ll benefit from the following prior knowledge and experience:
Understanding of Linux OS fundamentals.
Web and CDN technologies.
Understanding DB performance and monitoring, both RDBMS and NoSQL.
Internet standards like HTTP, DNS, and TLS.
Being part of a weekly on-call rotation.
Competencies that we value in candidates:
You’re curious and open to learning new technologies and best practices.
You can focus on key priorities and pragmatic solutions.
You can adjust quickly to changing priorities and conditions.
About the team
We believe that empowered, engaged employees do the best work. We’ll be giving you the tools you need to succeed and looking to you for suggestions for improvement not just in your daily job, but in many other aspects of building a company. Whether you work from our main office in San Francisco, or you are a remote employee, we’ll be working together a lot - particularly, pairing and collaborating - we want you to succeed! We don’t want you to work too hard (burnout is real), and we do want to encourage you to grow (impostor syndrome is also real) - and we’ll help you do that.
Netlify is devoted to building a team of people with different backgrounds and lifestyles. We eagerly invite applications from people of all kinds. We don’t discriminate against employees or applicants based on gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, age, race, citizenship, pregnancy status, or any other differences. If we can do anything to provide a better interview, i.e. accommodate a disability, then please do let us know.
How we hire
After we evaluate your application, we will schedule a conference call so we can meet. If you live in San Francisco, we usually substitute this call with a visit to our office. This first meeting helps us to learn more about your past experience and helps you to learn a little bit more about our company and how we work.
If we move forward with the process, we will work together in designing a test to evaluate your technical skills. We’ll invite you to join a dedicated Slack channel where we can reach each other and talk about the test.
If the test is successful, we’ll schedule a next meeting with other members of the company that you’ll be working with, directly or indirectly.
After this third interview, you’ll meet with the management team to discuss salary and other compensations.
