AWS DevOps Engineer
Our company is the world’s leading content recommendation platform, operating at a very large scale, reaching over 500M unique users monthly and over 80% of the U.S. online population.
Our technology and services are based on open source technologies, and are served from several data centers, at a scale of billions of requests a day. In order to meet the increasing challenges of this growing business, we continually work to improve the automation and monitoring capabilities, leveraging new technologies, and improve the development processes.
Who you are:
A talented AWS Engineer with a strong development orientation and desire for constant improvement, with both the ability and passion to learn new technologies.
You have proven production experience — something we like to ask during interviews is “What have you broken lately, and how did you fix it?”
Who we are:
Our Company is great for a lot of reasons, but for someone like you it’s ideal because:
- We are a Learning Organization, one that requires proficiency with new technologies and discovering how they integrate with what we’re building in-house.
- This particular role is one that has a lot of visibility and impact throughout the organization.
- Our team and company culture are focused on the things that matter – constant learning, trust, personal development and success.
Desired Technical skills:
- Extensive experience with AWS
- Linux system engineering experience and good familiarity with Linux shell scripting
- Experience working with, configuring, and building tools for process automation and management
- Familiarity with open source tools (such as HAProxy, nginx, Chef)
- Familiarity with DNS management and CDN technologies is an advantage
- Familiarity with different types of data stores and caching mechanisms (Cassandra, ElasticSearch, Redis) is an Advantage
