About the Team:

The Edge team owns the API gateway that acts as the entry point for all requests into the product. You’ll be part of a team that implements shared and platform level services while utilizing monitoring, alerts and automated tests to operate and maintain aggressive SLAs. New challenges on our roadmap include evolving our systems to support traffic management, observability, policy enforcement, and enhanced security consistently across our microservices.

What you’ll do:

  • Play a major role in ensuring cross-org initiatives meet their commitments by proactively noticing and helping anywhere needed

  • Architect, build, and operate platform services that other internal services rely on for key functionality
  • Build services that remain performant under large loads and can automatically scale up and down to maximize efficiency
  • Be transparent - Working in a remote/async setting means we highly value a written culture for the benefit of clarity, communication, and historical record-keeping
  • Ship highly reliable code - Safeguard our codebase to ensure that only high-quality PRs get approved and provide feedback on those that don’t
  • Clearly scope projects and the work involved, providing an accurate level-of-effort that can align with other cross-team priorities

What you’ll bring: 

  • Strong proficiency in Golang; JS experience is considered an asset
  • Multiple years of experience debugging complex issues at every level of the stack; you can debug a web application problem all the way from the browser, through the transport, through the application and servers and databases and asynchronous queues
  • Logs and core dumps don’t frighten you
  • Hands-on experience building and operating shared services that scale
  • Use of continuous integration and delivery technologies at an expert level; you have the ability and interest to teach others best practices
  • Curiosity to iterate and improve on solutions; you view unknowns as challenges and enjoy them
