Swift Navigation, Inc. was founded in 2012 to make GPS positioning technology more accurate and affordable. Its GPS and GNSS positioning products are available a fraction of the price of the competition and deliver 100 times better accuracy than the GPS in a cell phone. Swift Navigation’s technology benefits a multitude of industries and applications—including autonomous vehicles, drones, precision agriculture, robotics, surveying and space. With its innovation and technology honored by Inc.’s 2016 and Forbes 2017 30 Under 30 lists, Swift Navigation is enabling a world where fields farm themselves, drones fly safely and autonomous transportation can take you home. Swift Navigation provides an end-to-end GNSS solution with a line of Piksi® Multi and Duro® receivers and Skylark™ Cloud Corrections Service. Learn more online at swiftnav.com.

As a member of the Cloud Engineering team, you will contribute and build infrastructure to run our leading cloud-based navigation corrections service. These services are being developed and deployed world-wide and need to be highly available, to bring high precision, autonomous navigation systems to the forefront of the industry. 
Our service-oriented architecture runs scientific modeling, and uses distributed message brokers for connected satellite navigation receivers.
You will be part of the team that owns the provisioning, scalability, availability, and maintenance of our multi-cluster infrastructure. You will participate in operating infrastructure-as-code, build automation wherever possible, and maintain production-critical services across many Kubernetes clusters.
We value a strong sense of ownership, service, and integrity demonstrated through clear communication. We are looking for creative problem solvers and people who can help make production a safer, more reliable environment.
We love to meet great people, so even if you don't tick every single box, apply anyway!
Experience we love to see:
  • Extensive experience with managing and building services on cloud infrastructure
  • Experience with monitoring and metrics infrastructure
  • Experience with container-based infrastructure and orchestration
  • Experience with automated configuration and infrastructure-as-code
  • Programming experience
  • A solid understanding of distributed systems (pitfalls, scaling issues, residency, integrity) to include algorithms, data structures, data stores, and the use of database systems in these environments
  • Experience creating and operating scalable and highly-available production services
We also value skills in one or more of the following areas:
  • Have launched a cloud service from scratch
  • Success in implementing and promoting continuous integration and deployment
  • Creating and integrating services with REST and RPC interfaces
  • Creating build and deployment pipelines using Jenkins / Spinnaker
  • Experience with security protocols and how to keep cloud services secure
Our Tech Stack - We don’t expect you to know all these technologies, and we’re hoping for you to push us forward to better technologies where useful:
  • AWS (EKS, EC2, DynamoDB, VPC, and many more)
  • Docker, Kubernetes (via AWS-EKS), helm 
  • Serverless infrastructure using AWS Lambda, DynamoDB, Cognito
  • Build/CI/CD: Jenkins (with pipelines), Artifactory, Spinnaker
  • Prometheus and Grafana for metrics and monitoring
  • Programming with Python, Haskell, Go, Groovy, C++
  • CloudFormation, Packer, and bash for automating infrastructure

Benefits & Perks

  • Unlimited vacation, competitive salary.
  • Growth and learning opportunities from a startup environment include working closely with an international team of scientists, engineers, platform architects, programmers and professionals.
