As a DevOps engineer on the new chains team, you will be working on things like testing suggested configurations for new chains, standing up new chains with monitoring, automatic recovery, and alerting as well as defining optimal configurations for new chains we support. You will be responsible for ensuring the uptime of new chains on our network, which services more than 50 billion requests per month, through the use of software development, off-the-shelf tooling and monitoring. We also expect every engineer to spend at least one day on customer support to understand our customer better.
We’re looking for a self-starter, who is communication focused with a deep sense of ownership and a team mentality to collaborate on achieving the best design/architecture for our systems and infrastructure.
You can expect to meet on a daily basis to go over customer issues, task progress and design solutions. You’ll be working directly with the technical leadership team: Manuel Kreutz, Mauro Delazeri, David Karim, Saurab Joshi and Auston Bunsen.
We need you to have experience with:
- Setting up and maintaining CI systems (eg Github Actions, Travis)
- Software Development in one or more of these languages: Python, Go, Ruby
- Infrastructure as Code (Terraform)
- Containerization (Docker, K8s, etc)
- Linux / Bash Scripting
- Popular Cloud Providers (Amazon, Google, DigitalOcean, Heroku)
- Monitoring / debugging system issues (Out of memory, I/O bottlenecks)
- Getting familiar with and setting up software you may be unfamiliar with
- Designing highly available systems with disaster recovery in mind
- Documenting your processes and sharing knowledge
