The Role

Love Docker, Python, Golang, and distributed systems?

Pachyderm is hiring a DevOps expert to be a senior member of our team to help improve infrastructure, deployment, and testing processes. Pachyderm has a rapidly-growing engineering team and we're long overdue for some major improvements to our internal infra and engineering methodologies.

While your primary focus will be to work on building the automation infrastructure, tools, and framework for testing the core product, you’ll also own the charter for performance benchmarks, long-running deployments, CI, and releases. In addition, you will help layout sustainable practices within engineering to continually raise the quality bar. At Pachyderm, OSS user and customer feedback is a major driver of our product roadmap and we believe that everyone within the company should experience that first-hand. In this role, you will be the customer voice within engineering. You will have an outsized impact in making your stakeholders (developers, customer team, and ultimately customers) successful and happy.

Pachyderm is just a small team right now, so you'd be getting in right at the ground floor and have an enormous impact on the success and direction of the company and product.  

We offer significant equity, full benefits, and all the usual startup perks.

 

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Optimizing Pachyderm CI to improve development workflow and increase developer velocity
  • Develop Pachyderm internal testing & benchmarking framework to perform large-scale benchmarks on a regular cadence
  • Improve, test, script, and document the multitude of deployment options for Pachyderm's core product including all cloud providers and various permutations of on-prem k8s and object stores
  • Build standard monitoring, logging, and debugging tools to facilitate faster iterations
  • Care about developer happiness and be a champion for our customers

 

Qualifications:

  • Golang or Python programming experience is required. While much of the job is automation and scripting, our testing frameworks, product backend, and internal automation work (e.g. k8s operators/CRDs) are all written in Go.
  • 4+ years of experience building, maintaining, and automating distributed systems, data infrastructure, back-end systems, or related infrastructure.
  • Experience working in a continuous integration / continuous delivery development environment
  • Expertise running and managing Kubernetes and Docker in one or more cloud providers, preferably as part of a large-scale, enterprise-class product related to storage, processing, networking, and/or virtualization
  • Expertise running and managing build, test, and release processes for 10+ person engineering orgs
  • Must have strong communication skills when talking about technical concepts. Our interview process strongly tests for communication as we have a very collaborative work environment where many parts of the codebase interact in complex ways
