Senior Platform Engineer, Kubernetes, Engine Yard (Remote) - $100,000/year USD

Job ID: 4650


Writing code used by other people to run the core of their businesses is an unmatched thrill for a developer - We do exactly that.

Engine Yard is changing how applications are deployed and managed on AWS with our NoOps containerized app platform. Our goal is to let development teams focus on building applications while we handle the deployment and management. So how are we doing that? 

  • Reducing the time it takes to deploy new apps from days to minutes with a simple GIT push deployment
  • Intelligently monitoring application performance, providing robust insights into how the application runs and behaves in production to optimize operations.
  • Building a Platform as a Service that provides the above at scale.

Speaking of that platform - we're looking for people who want to help us continue building it!  You will be designing and implementing the features of the platform.  In this essential role, you'll also investigate opportunities for improving the platform, and provide feedback to Product Management on technical aspects of the products.  You'll be at the heart of the Engineering machine that powers the platform products.  Join us today!.

What you will be doing

  • Design and implement features at scale.
  • Investigate issues & fix bugs.
  • Provide technical insights on how the platform can be improved.

What you will NOT be doing

  • Just designing solutions.  This is a hands-on role where proving your solutions with working and scalable code is needed.
  • Performing non-technical tasks. No customer-facing or administrative work around here! We want you to spend your time solving the toughest technical solutions, not wading through piles of paperwork.

Key Responsibilities

  • Clear, concise design and implementation of a feature.
  • A solution that shows thinking beyond just the current iteration of the feature.

Candidate Requirements

  • Solid coding skills and willingness to take on any language.
  • Thinking from a feature perspective instead of a purely a technical problem to solve.
  • Hands-on knowledge of Cloud Computing, Containers, and Kubernetes from a system developer or SRE point of view.
  • Ability to explain technical decisions to a non-deeply technical audience.

Nice to have

  • Experience with building and maintaining tools for developers.
  • Experience with using Infrastructure as Code to manage a fleet of Kubernetes clusters.
