The Platform Automation team is looking for an experienced individual to help Invision's engineers to build and manage microservices in our multi-cloud computing infrastructure. These services run on hundreds of environments: your job is to create and maintain tools that make the CICD process a breeze, so our engineers can ship frequently and safely. How? How about tools to deploy or rollback changes? visualization tools to observe the result in real-time? diagnostic tools to correlate events such as environment variable changes, feature flag changes, and one-off script executions? And if you think there are already existing tools or open source solutions that solve our problems, even better — come help us to integrate these tools into our ever-growing infrastructure so that our engineers can deliver their services faster with confidence.
Our target candidates are pragmatic engineers who have worked in a DevOps environment for several years. They are accustomed to agile development and understand the concept “done done”. They write software that their teammates can maintain — a clear expression of intention over clever syntax, realistic user-level requirement tests over completism. They automate as much as possible — and for the rest, they document and communicate. We are a highly collaborative team who like to share what we know and help each other to get things done; our next teammate should share a similar mindset and help us strengthen our team culture.
What You'll Need to Join Us:
- Solid experience in turning business requirements into production quality software, preferably in Go (Do you have Github repos to share?)
- Experience in Systems Programming; understand the concepts of concurrency, pointer, memory management etc.
- Experience in cloud and related technologies such as Kubernetes, Kafka, Docker, AWS, and Lambda
- Experience in storage and caching technologies such as MySQL, MongoDB, and Redis
- Experience in operating and monitoring microservices in production environments, with tools such as DataDog, PagerDuty, and Loggly
Also Good To Have:
- Understanding of SSO technologies such as OAuth and SAML
- Understanding of service mesh technologies such as Envoy and Istio
