We seek the ultimate utility player to join our highly versatile and talented engineering team. The person we want to hire combines strong OO-design and software development skills with Unix commandline-fu and dexterous troubleshooting abilities. To be the right fit for this team, you’re likely learning the latest Python library in your spare time and have probably forked a handful of github projects to tinker with. Description
On any given day you might be coding, or configuring new services, or contributing to design meetings, or desperately reading through someone else’s code to find the bug in a key piece of production software. And we’re always working to automate the work away. In Data Ops, you’re free to choose the development tool for the job and empowered to explore new languages, frameworks, and products in your work. Because we support the things that everyone uses, everyone comes to us when they go wrong. There’s pressure that comes with that responsibility, but most of the time it means you’re here to save the day.
A key responsibility of the job is participation in the on-call rotation to support production pipelines. Our global follow-the-sun on-call schedule ensures that the data always arrives on time, so some of the time you will be on pager duty and diving into big data workflows that are failing unexpectedly, working with development teams or developing patches yourself to get things going again. We strive to continually improve the on-call rotation and make improvements all the time to protect your personal time, as well as having competitive benefits like paid-for home internet and mobile phones to make life a little easier.
