About Mixpanel:

We help businesses build better products by delivering tools to enable them to become customer-obsessed and data-informed. Our user analytics product serves over 26,000 customers and 30% of the Fortune 100. We’re on a mission to level the playing field so that every company can have access to the data infrastructure and analysis that only a few leading tech companies have been able to afford to build on their own.

About the team:

Site Reliability Engineering at Mixpanel is a team of hybrid software/systems engineers targeting large-scale advances in operational efficiency and maturity, reliability, automation, and a deeper understanding of the dependencies inherent in our infrastructure. With numerous large clusters in multiple regions across the planet, and with 50 Billion data points flowing in every month, the goal of SRE is to enable continuous growth while decreasing operational overhead and increasing performance, all while maintaining our high levels of reliability and data resilience.

If you’re the kind of person who flourishes with the challenge of writing automation, debugging errant services, going deep into the Linux kernel, end-to-end performance tuning, all while serving hundreds of thousands of events every second of every day, we’d love to get to know you.

About the role:

  • Use your experience as a coder to build tools, services, automation.
  • Take charge of performance and reliability measurement, and drive improvements based on data.
  • Run critical operational portions of our ingestion, analytics, storage, and serving infrastructure.
  • Use your knowledge of open source tools and available services to maintain the highest-levels of uptime across our myriad services, and building the portions that don’t yet exist.
  • Own configuration management, monitoring, alerting, data resilience, and critical measurement infrastructure.
  • Manage our fleet of clusters, distributed globally.

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Solid experience with Linux (we run Ubuntu).
  • Solid coding experience, and a passion for solving hard problems through automation and resilient software.
  • A hunger for solving not just the symptoms, but the root cause of any issues that arise.
  • Industry experience in running a multi-node environment is useful (minimum 2 years is mandatory), but your attitude and proven abilities are more important.

About our culture:

  • Be Open: When knowledge becomes open, we can come together as a team to collaborate around a shared purpose.
  • Customer Focus: Our customers’ success is our success. 
  • Lead Change: Everyone at Mixpanel has the capacity to make an impact on the business.
  • Results Oriented: Driving results in a measurable way ensures we stay focused on the highest impact initiatives.
  • One Team: We can’t win without each other.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes

Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
