Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web.
 
We’re looking for a Site Reliability Engineer to improve reliability and stability of Webflow’s customer-facing, production infrastructure, serving millions of page views per hour. Our product is used by over 2 million users world-wide across 190 countries, and you’ll help ensure our platform is secure and scalable for these users as tens of thousands of projects are launched on Webflow each month. 

About the role 

  • Location: San Francisco HQ or remote (Western Hemisphere) 
  • Full-time

As a Site Reliability Engineer, you'll: 

  • Join our App and Site Hosting team, which is responsible for infrastructure behind the main Webflow application, as well as the infrastructure required for our hosting plans.
  • Empower engineers on other teams to take control of their services by writing shared infrastructure-as-code tooling and collaborating on internal best practices for infrastructure.
  • Occasionally dive into the main Webflow application in React, Node, and MongoDB to better discern (and sometimes fix) behavior in production.
  • Work with peers on Webflow’s Customer Support, Partnerships, and Sales teams to enable customers using Webflow’s services in production.
  • Collaborate with members of Webflow’s Security & Compliance team to maintain a secure production environment, especially as we work towards SOC 2 Type 2 compliance in 2021.

About you

You'll thrive as a Site Reliability Engineer if you:

  • Experience operating customer-facing services in production, in at least one previous role.
  • Experience automating common operational tasks using a modern programming language like Python, Ruby, Go, or JavaScript, and an interest in learning or writing JavaScript, specifically.
  • Experience navigating multi-tier cloud environments on either AWS or GCP.
  • Experience with container-centric architectures, built with Docker and tools like Kubernetes (EKS, GKE, AKS, OpenShift, etc.), ECS, Docker Swarm, or Mesos.
  • Experience with infrastructure-as-code tools like Terraform, Ansible, Puppet, or Chef.

It would be a bonus if you had: 

  • Experience as part of an on-call rotation for customer-facing services in production.
  • Experience with Kubernetes, OpenResty, Terraform, or Pulumi, specifically.
  • Experience navigating a production codebase, particularly as a Backend Engineer.
  • Experience working in a distributed team, especially across international time zones.
  • Experience working in high-compliance environments or a special interest in security engineering. We are not the security team, but we are always looking to improve our security posture!
If you don’t meet 100% of the above requirements, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a job if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements!
 
We don’t expect you to be an expert in all of the areas described above, but you should have enough skill to ask questions required to better scope a task, then recommend an approach and execute on that task. You should also be interested in improving your skills in the areas you are less familiar with.

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.

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.
