For over one hundred years, cities have managed their streets with concrete, paint, signage and signals. The last ten years have seen a dramatic degradation of cities’ ability to manage the movement of vehicles in the public realm. The tools currently available to them to fight back are not comprehensive enough, largely proprietary and have done a poor job of solving for the real issues.
Lacuna is working directly with cities to establish a new, digital environment that will allow them to effectively manage the public right-of-way for the next 100 years. This will result in a digital infrastructure that will fully support 21st century mobility – for everything from scooters to AVs to flying taxis.We aspire to be uniquely city and public friendly -- we want to build this future on a foundation of open source and open standards, with privacy- and society-first principles from the start.
We are housed at Playground Global, an incubator with fantastic facilities, near the Cal Ave train station in Palo Alto, CA.
We are looking for a seasoned devops/platform engineer with experience in operating large-scale systems. As Lacuna grows to global scale, we will be dealing with issues involving single- vs. multi-tenancy installations, managing customer SLAs, and keeping on top of a rapidly evolving platform.
You will be responsible for provisioning and managing both customer-facing production and development environments. As we take on new customers and grow our infrastructure, your goals will include refining our monitoring and alerting systems, helping migrate from a regional to an edge-based architecture, and improving our CI/CD pipelines.
Experience with highly-scalable, highly-reliable global infrastructure
Cloud-native serverless/containerized systems (Lambda, Kubernetes)
Familiarity with authentication services (Auth0, AWS Cognito)
Disciplined monitoring and alerting - know what's important while avoiding fatigue/overload
Continuous integration & deployment pipelines
IaaS automation (CloudFormation, Terraform, etc)
Lacuna is an equal opportunity employer. In building a product to solve real world problems for our cities, we strive to build a company representative of those cities. We encourage diversity in thought, experience, background and perspective. We are committed to creating such an environment for all employees.
