We enable top companies to do more productive and inspired work and are growing quickly! We're venture-backed; we have big ambitions, and we want you to help us achieve them.

What to expect

You will be part of Breather’s Engineering Infrastructure team, whose mission is twofold: first, to

ensure the reliability, scalability and efficiency of our systems; and second: to help developers and analysts be more productive and efficient, by providing them with tooling and shared infrastructure.


Our infrastructure is based on:

  • AWS
  • Docker
  • Terraform
  • Ansible
  • Python
  • Node.JS

In this role, you will be working on:

Cloud Architecture

In collaboration with the rest of the engineering team, you will help design systems and applications that are highly available, scalable, and low-latency.


System Reliability

You will ensure our systems are built for resilience and can self-heal and scale automatically with demand. Instrument and monitor our infrastructure so that we can easily query the state of the systems, and are alerted in time when things do go astray.


Infrastructure Automation

You will strive to have our infrastructure be reproducible and fully described in code.


Dev / Build / Test / Deployment Pipeline

Our deployment pipeline is one of Breather’s most critical infrastructure components. It is based on Docker, CircleCI, and Terraform. You will work to make it ever faster, reliable and easy to use for developers.


Helpful Skills and Experience you’ll need to succeed:

  • Deep understanding of HTTP, DNS, TCP/UDP and IP protocols, and networking in general;
  • Proficiency with Linux systems, shell scripting and the Unix toolbelt;
  • Solid skills with programming languages such as Python or Ruby;
  • Experience with infrastructure automation tools such as Terraform, Puppet, Chef, or Ansible
  • Familiarity with Docker and container management systems like ECS, Kubernetes, or Docker Swarm;
  • Experience with the AWS platform;
  • Experience with continuous integration and delivery systems like CircleCI, Jenkins or CodePipeline.

In addition to experience with some of the technologies we use, you have the following:

  • A bachelor’s degree in Computer Science/Engineering, or equivalent experience
  • 3 or more years in an engineering role
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • The need to keep your skillset current; a thirst for knowledge
