About the role:

We are looking for an experienced Senior Site Reliability Engineer with a proven track record in building and maintaining data pipelines and operating data products at scale.

You will work closely with our data scientists, other engineers, architects and product leads to create the technology that generates and transforms data into applications, insights and experiences for our users.

What you will do:

  • Work closely together with global and local engineering teams, product and data science on new projects and enhancements.
  • Build and maintain robust, fault-tolerant and highly scalable infrastructure that supports our global growth.
  • Enhance our data architecture to balance scale and performance.
  • Engage in software performance analysis, systems tuning, service capacity planning and demand forecasting.
  • Write and maintain tools to improve the availability, scalability and efficiency of our platform.
  • Actively contribute to create autonomy within product teams throughout tools and frameworks.
  • Join on-call rotations together with Product Development.

Here are some examples of our work:

  • Machine Learning - build and enhance ML pipelines in the context of user profiling and segmentation, recommendations and search relevancy
  • Analytic Data Products - build statistics engines using ClickHouse to power insights dashboards
  • Data Pipelines - create real-time or batch pipelines or rewrite existing pipelines using Flink and/or Spark (Scala)

Who are you:

You have:

  • BS/MS degree in Computer Science or equivalent working experience.
  • Strong expertise in Linux and working knowledge of the TCP/IP stack, Internet routing and load balancing.
  • Solid understanding of private and public cloud, preferably on Openstack and Google Cloud Platform.
  • Strong hands-on experience with container (Docker) schedulers and orchestrators like Nomad or Kubernetes.
  • Expertise in maintaining data pipelines (real-time and batch) with processing frameworks like Apache Flink, Apache Spark, Apache Beam, Google DataFlow or similar.
  • Strong knowledge of distributed data stores and messaging queuing systems at scale, like Casandra and Kafka. Preferably one or more of Google BigTable, Redis, ClickHouse, Elasticsearch, Google PubSub.
  • Experience in GoLang and/or Python programming languages and scripting languages like Bash or Groovy.
  • Experience in analyzing and troubleshooting large-scale distributed systems.
  • Familiarity with monitoring frameworks like Prometheus or the Graphite stack.

Also:

  • You feel ownership over everything you ship. You pride yourself on operational excellence.
  • You love freedom and don’t like being micromanaged. Given the context, you are capable of self-direction.
  • You are an excellent communicator who can explain complex problems in clear and concise language.

What you can expect from us:

  • A collaborative, informal, international and playful work environment with self-organized, multi-disciplinary agile/lean teams.
  • Managers and teammates who are invested in your growth as a technologist and as a person.
  • Access to tools and resources to do your job (IDEs, Safari Online subscription, conferences and meetups, all the coffee and soda you can drink, and much more).
  • Ability to join and participate in multiple internal interest groups across eCG in trending topics such as Infrastructure, Architecture and others.
