We’re looking for Engineers to join the Platform Engineering Team at StockX.

The Platform Engineering mission is to build foundational components which enable engineering teams to rapidly deliver robust services. We strive to learn and understand the collective needs of engineers such that we build a community which fosters innovation, psychological safety, and growth.

Our team focus is on building tools that empower all engineers (including ourselves) to run operationally excellent services, not necessarily operating services ourselves.

We utilize cutting edge tools and services like CircleCI, Harness, Kubernetes, LaunchDarkly, Datadog, and Amazon Web Services to build resilient and scalable platforms that accommodate our rapid growth. As a StockX Platform Engineer, you will be empowered to take ownership of technology decisions and solutions while playing a pivotal role in establishing a successful engineering culture at a fast-growing company.

Responsibilities

  • Work within a cross-functional team of engineers to specify, design, develop, test, and implement cloud services and solutions
  • Function as a subject matter expert to projects and implementations regarding DevOps, SRE, and Cloud Architecture
  • Programmatically automate routine cloud deployment, administration, and monitoring tasks
  • Collaborate with engineers throughout the organization to ensure we are using best practices to build scalable, secure, and operationally sound systems
  • Develop data driven measures of team success, overall system, and company health.
  • Work with the Platform Engineering team to define OKRs for our goals and quantitatively measure progress against those targets

Requirements

  • 3+ years of applicable experience
  • Familiar with microservice, distributed, and event-driven architectures
  • Solid understanding of Linux/UNIX and comfortable working in a command line-centric environment
  • Troubleshooting, debugging, and collaboration are second nature
  • A strong desire to eliminate toil in daily work for all engineers
  • Strong understanding of version control concepts, ideally Git (pull requests, branching, tagging, integrations, etc.)
  • Experience and passion for automation of key processes, focusing on consistent and measurable results

In addition to these general responsibilities and requirements, we are looking for candidates that span one or more of the following disciplines.  (While we’re a multi-disciplinary team, candidates aren’t expected to be experts in all of the items detailed below)

CI/CD & Tooling

  • Experience developing and operating CI/CD pipelines (using CircleCI, Jenkins, Github Actions, Travis, etc) to automate delivery of working code to production
  • Enforce strict compliance and security requirements in conjunction with Security Engineering via static code analysis, dependency vulnerability scanning, container scanning, etc.
  • Work with engineers to create standard local/non-production environments for systems across the organization to enable expedited development and testing 
  • Develop automated deployment and monitoring of cloud infrastructure, web applications, and microservices.
  • Document tooling for use by engineers in the development, deployment, and operation of their services.

Infrastructure Engineering

  • Experience managing PostgreSQL and/or MySQL databases
  • General knowledge of infrastructure as code concepts including Terraform, Docker, and Helm
  • Comfortable working in Linux environments
  • Experience with AWS (VPC, EC2, Fargate, S3, RDS, Elasticache, DynamoDB, API Gateway, SQS, SNS, Lambda)
  • Experience developing and troubleshooting networks in cloud providers.  Including DNS, VPNs, VPC Peering Connections, etc.
  • Knowledge of modern software architectures, including event-driven architecture and 12 factor app design
  • Experience with managing containerized platforms, especially Kubernetes
  • General knowledge of managing edge networking services like CDN and reverse proxies

Site Reliability Engineering

  • Experience building, tuning, and troubleshooting performance for high traffic cloud/web services
  • Implementing and consistently improving the performance, availability, reliability, maintainability, security, and scalability of our platform and cloud infrastructure
  • Excellent grasp of Kubernetes and Helm including scheduling methods, scaling abilities, control plane, cost effectiveness, etc.
  • Comfortable with core SRE concepts like availability, latency, change management, emergency response, and capacity planning
  • Able to apply core SRE concepts to small teams (RCAs, trend analysis, availability expectations) and help set the tone around service operations, reliability, and standards.
  • Excitement to push metrics and data out to engineering teams and collaborate with them on improving their systems.

This is a great opportunity to leverage your existing skills, help build a world-class team, and have a huge impact on how marketplaces can be redefined. At StockX, we are just getting started.

 

About Us

In a world where consumers increasingly value self-expression and individuality, the market for hard-to-find fashion, collectibles, and electronics has never been hotter. Our global platform offers unique access to current culture while our data-driven, bid-ask model provides buyers with the real-time visibility to know they’re getting a fair price.
 
With key leadership and an inspiring vision in place, we believe we’re poised for significant growth: into new product verticals, new audiences, and new geographies. To get there we’re looking for flexible, all-in teammates who are excited by ownership and the opportunity to take on emerging challenges.
 
If you’re a doer who’s ready to solve tough problems with plenty of laughs along the way, we’d love to hear from you. We welcome, embrace, and respect all dimensions of diversity. We’re committed to creating an inclusive environment where all team members are valued, supported, and respected—and no, you don’t need to know a thing about sneakers or fashion.
 
 
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

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.

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.
