ABOUT RETOOL: 

At Retool, we’re changing the way software is built. We’ve developed the fastest way to build internal tools, saving companies time, resources, and engineering bandwidth. Whether it’s refunding orders, underwriting loans, managing marketplaces, rolling out new features, analyzing transactions, or providing customer support, Retool makes it dramatically faster and easier to build internal tools that teams need. We believe that the future of software development lies in being a force multiplier for developers and technical builders, helping them move considerably faster building a lot more software.  We’re looking for highly collaborative people as we build a world-class team to support this mission and we’d love for you to join us!

WHY WE'RE LOOKING FOR YOU:
 
Retool started as a way to address obstacles with internal tools and has grown into a company that solves internal tooling for thousands of companies, from one-person startups to S&P 500 enterprises. We’ve done a lot with a little–we have a rapidly growing engineering team and a laundry list of features and foundational infrastructure pieces we want to tackle. 

Retool is in an exciting hyper-growth phase and we need infrastructure engineers to tackle our rapid scaling challenges. These scaling challenges are unique both in scope and in technical complexity as we scale both the company and the product.

WHAT YOU'LL DO:
 
As an early member of the infrastructure team, you will build and automate foundational systems for reliability, security, performance, developer velocity, and scale. Whether you’re interested in wide breadth or deep depth, there are both opportunities for both. You will work cross functionally, supporting the engineering, product, design, customer success, support, and sales functions.
 
IN THIS ROLE, YOU'LL:
  • Scale Retool’s core cloud platform for high availability and performance globally
  • Work collaboratively with the rest of the engineering team to deliver infrastructure for core and emerging products
  • Evolve our backend architecture/infrastructure for both cloud and on-premise deployments
  • Work with the team to set and prioritize our roadmap to maximize customer impact
  • Define and automate developer process/workflow
  • Support our systems in production
  • Develop new data solutions
  • Build monitoring and observability for production systems
  • Conduct engineering interviews for new team members

THE SKILLSET YOU'll BRING:

  • 7+ years of relevant experience
  • Track record of delivering engineering projects and process improvements
  • Experience scaling cloud infrastructure
  • Passion for building and productionizing developer productivity tools, frameworks, and other aspects of platform engineering
  • Experience with inner workings of Linux, containers (Docker, containerd), and container orchestration technologies (e.g. docker-compose, Kubernetes)
  • A love of building productive, collaborative relationships, both within an engineering org and across the broader company
  • You're excited by the ambiguity and high-ownership culture of early-stage startups
  • You are pragmatic, solution-oriented, and scrappy
  • You enjoy working collaboratively with a broad range of job functions and roles
  • Experience with our tech stack: Node, Postgres, Docker, Kubernetes
  • Experience scaling relational databases (Postgres preferred)
  • Good knowledge of cloud, on-prem, traffic routing, service architecture in multi-region setup

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
