SeatGeek has more services than developers. That means automation has to be the default when it comes to deploying and testing our platforms.
As an Infrastructure Engineer, you'll be implementing tooling to allow developers to move faster as the infrastructure evolves around them. When you're not working on platform enhancements, you'll be designing and testing new ways of developing against and interacting with our infrastructure.
What You'll Be Doing
Working closely with Developers to increase local development productivity
Contribute to our deployment pipeline
Building tools to make working with our existing monitoring/logging infrastructure easier for developers
Identifying areas for the Operations team at large to improve for developers
What We're Looking For
The ideal candidate will be someone who loves building web apps but also has a keen interest for how they're deployed and run. You make decisions based on data and are not afraid of experimenting to get the information you need.
At least 2 years of professional software engineering experience or a Comp Sci (or equivalent*) degree.
Some experience automating code deployments.
Understanding of Unix systems/tools.
Expert with at least one language and good with several others.
AWS experience is a big plus, but not strictly necessary.
Experience with a wide variety of open source software.
* Note: Learn-to-code bootcamps do not qualify as equivalent
The Tools We Use
We work with the development team to pick the right tool for the job, and as such we deploy quite a diverse stack. You absolutely do not need experience with all of these, but we thought you might be curious.
