About the role

We are looking for a site reliability engineer to join our platform team. In this role you will work to make our backend systems more reliable, available, maintainable, and serviceable. You will understand the common breaking points of Hive’s APIs and storage systems, and help to prioritize efforts to fix them. You’ll continue the migration of classically managed VMs to kubernetes, and make better Hive’s usage of kubernetes and associated tools for doing rolling deployments. You’ll help to simplify Hive’s platform infrastructure and vet new tools for their applicability as they emerge. You will, over time, make increasingly valuable contributions to a growth-stage startup on a driven yet humble team.

 About you

You are familiar with tools to benchmark a scalable distributed system and understand how to analyse results with impacts from disk, network, and CPU. You are intimately familiar with at least one container orchestration software like Kubernetes or Aurora+Mesos. You can easily dockerize any service after identifying its dependencies, and can manage a private docker registry. You understand correct secrets management and have integrated KMS, Azure KeyVault, or similar, with the orchestration platform’s secrets system. Overall you have a great understanding of the best tools out there for delivering software, and have some ideas of your own for how to improve them.

About the team

The Platform Team has a cross-functional approach. We take shared responsibility for both resource-level management and development of existing and new services in our service-oriented architecture. This includes service orchestration using Kubernetes, common logging and monitoring services, and data infrastructure such as Kafka, Redis and HBase. We design, implement and test services, APIs and Data Products. The common Platform serves our feature teams, the larger organization, and our customers. We work closely with the rest of engineering with guidelines and support to ensure that our platform is reliable, scalable, maintainable, and easy to use.
