Job description

About the Role: PlanGrid is looking for a DevOps/Infrastructure Engineer to join our rapidly growing Data Center Operations team. The Data Center Operations team ensures infrastructure uptime, as well as the provisioning and management of AWS cloud resources for PlanGrid engineers. A big part of our job is enabling developers to have visibility into their service’s performance by means of metrics, traces, and logging. Our growing team handles complex architectural projects to allow us to grow internationally, such as datacenter-level regional disaster recovery and eventually implementing self-healing infrastructure across many AWS regions. In the last year, we’ve transitioned the company over to self-hosted Kubernetes from a legacy Heroku architecture, built high-availability and resiliency around database clusters through teardown infrastructure testing, written a Fluent daemon set to log all activity in our customer-facing pods in Kubernetes, implemented Go-based autoscalers for our EC2 instances, and contributed upstream to Spinnaker’s codebase. We adhere to a DevOps methodology (as opposed to old-school operations) where developers -- not operations people -- are responsible for their code’s reliable operation and where developers are empowered and trusted to make the changes necessary for reliability. Our work touches every layer of infrastructure, so we are looking for engineers with a broad range of operations and development experience, especially people who define success in terms of SLOs, SLIs, and SLAs, who care deeply about observability in distributed systems, and who have experience scaling out cloud systems to multiple regions worldwide.
