Grammarly is excited to offer a remote-first hybrid working model. Team members can work primarily remotely in the United States, Canada, Ukraine, Germany, Poland, and Portugal. Conditions permitting, teams will meet in person a few weeks every quarter at one of Grammarly's hubs, currently in San Francisco, Kyiv, New York, Vancouver, and Berlin, or in a shared workspace in Krakow.
Grammarly team members in this role must be based in the United States or Canada.
Grammarly empowers people to thrive and connect, whenever and wherever they communicate. Every day, 30 million people and 30,000 teams around the world use our AI-powered writing assistant. All of this begins with our team collaborating in a values-driven and learning-oriented environment.
To achieve our ambitious goals, we’re looking for a Software Engineer to join our Cloud Infrastructure team as part of the wider Engineering Platform team. This role will be responsible for building world-class cloud-native infrastructure solutions for Grammarly engineers. In other words, a scalable, reliable, and secure infrastructure that grows with our user base.
Grammarly’s engineers and researchers have the freedom to innovate and uncover breakthroughs—and, in turn, influence our product roadmap. The complexity of our technical challenges is growing rapidly as we scale our interfaces, algorithms, and infrastructure. Read more about our stack or hear from our team on our technical blog.
As a Software Engineer, Cloud Infrastructure, you will build a foundational framework that allows our Engineering teams to run applications in the cloud in a delightful way, with no need for in-depth infrastructure knowledge. This means you will need to create an abstraction over the infrastructure that is holistic and flexible, but also easy to use. There is no easy way to create standard solutions—you will always need to balance simplicity and flexibility, security and speed, and make many other complex decisions.
In this role, you will:
- Use modern infrastructure management tools and services, such as AWS, to build a massively scalable platform for Grammarly’s services.
- Manage cloud-native infrastructure solutions, such as cross-service infrastructure and domains, container orchestration and deployments, auto-scaling tool sets, and service discovery.
- Build, set up, and continually improve cloud networking—and keep it compliant with modern security standards.
- Build solutions and frameworks to spin up, test, deploy, and observe Grammarly’s services without much effort.
- Manage third-party systems used by Grammarly’s engineers.
- Participate in on-call incident response and escalation procedures.
We’re looking for someone who
- Embodies our EAGER values—is ethical, adaptable, gritty, empathetic, and remarkable.
- Is able to collaborate in person 2–4 weeks per quarter, traveling if necessary to the hub where the team is based.
- Loves system administration, learns constantly, and can’t wait to let us know about the latest cool tool they’ve tried.
- Has at least 3 years of experience managing a live production environment, preferably a high-load system.
- Is knowledgable of AWS —or has deep expertise in Azure or GCP and is willing to learn AWS quickly.
- Knows Linux inside and out—or learn it quickly.
- Can deliver maintainable and high-quality code on Go or other languages.
- Can communicate well and collaborate effectively, empathetically, and proactively on a tightly integrated team.
- Can understand a problem, see the holistic picture, and break it down into single and manageable components.
