Your role in our Team

At Workrise, we believe it’s more than just a job, we invest in our people & encourage you to choose the path for your career. It’s truly about you, your future & where you want to go.

The Engineering team at Workrise leverages a variety of tools to enable and sustain a scalable and highly-resilient platform for delivering customer value. We are organized into agile, cross-functional product line teams consisting of engineering, product and design which allows us to develop deep expertise and rapidly deliver high-value features and functionality.

We are looking for a Cloud Engineer to help us build the next evolution of the Workrise cloud infrastructure (Google Cloud Platform, Terraform), developer tooling (CI/CD), application infrastructure (Kubernetes, Istio Service Mesh) and monitoring (Grafana, Prometheus, Open Telemetry).

What you'll be doing

  • Working with Helm and CircleCI configuration to help make our deployment process fast, secure, and standardized
  • Working with Prometheus metrics and building dashboards in Grafana
  • Building and iterating on Terraform modules 
  • Pairing with our application teams to understand their pain points and ensure their success
  • Handling on-call rotation ensuring high uptime and resiliency for our customers and development teams

Who you are

You’re an engineer who has had experience using cloud technologies to build, deploy, run, and manage applications. You are excited about the prospect of working at an organization that is focused on building a platform team to enable and work alongside the application teams. You revel in implementing tools that reduce friction. You are the person that people come to when they need more opinions on solving a challenging problem. 

Most importantly, you want to work with engineers who push the status quo and let you take end to end ownership of the work you are passionate about. 

So, what is important to us

  • 2+ years a cloud focused DevOps or SRE role OR 4+ years of development experience interacting with cloud technologies 
  • Hands-on monitoring tool usage (SumoLogic, Stackdriver, Grafana, Prometheus)
  • Experience with one or more cloud technologies (AWS, GCP, Azure)
  • BS degree or equivalent practical experience

Above all you’ll get stuff done, more importantly you’ll collaborate to do the right things, in the right way to achieve the right outcomes

Some of the things that would be nice to have

  • You have worked on teams that build tools for developers 
  • You have a background or certifications in cloud security 
  • Experience with pub/sub messaging technology like Kafka (or equivalent)
  • Experience configuring service mesh based policies (Istio)
  • Experience provisioning, deploying, and supporting containers with Helm / Kustomize, Kubernetes, and Docker
  • Experience building configuration for CI/CD (Git, Jenkins, Spinnaker, CircleCI, etc.)
  • Experience with infrastructure as code technologies for cloud resources, preferably Terraform
