Your Opportunity

Do you love the cloud? Does the opportunity to explore new technology excite you? We are looking for an experienced cloud engineer and technical leader to join our architecture team. You will design and build the software and tools our developers use daily to build, deploy, and troubleshoot services which accept terabytes of traffic every day.

  • Steer teams toward technical decisions that fit well with our long term vision.
  • Help teams choose the right tools for the job at hand and utilize the chosen technologies efficiently.
  • Communicate, communicate, communicate: Architects serve as the connective tissue between teams and organizations for all technical matters.
Your Qualifications

If you are ready for this job, you have spent years building or supporting large distributed systems in the cloud. You know how to design and roll out tooling, while also documenting it for others to understand. You keep up on tech trends and have open conversations with members of the team.
