The Infrastructure Engineering team is ten engineers who develop and run the platform distributed across hundreds of servers. Our key focus areas are high scalability, low latency and low cost. We care about quality. We do very thorough code reviews, and try our best to build code that is simple, clear and reliable. Our engineering team moves quickly; if it's better than live, we ship it and measure the results. We value learning, from each other and by building prototypes and collecting data to challenge our assumptions. We’re ambitious. We don’t reinvent the wheel, but we’re not afraid to push the boundaries and attempt to invent new technologies if needed. In doing so, sometimes we try things that fail, and that’s okay. We collaborate. We try to have at least two people work together on every project. It’s more fun and yields better results.

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.
