Site Reliability Engineer

imgix is looking for an experienced Site Reliability Engineer to join our Infrastructure Engineering team. In this role, you will work closely with other members of the Infrastructure team to build and operate the high performance, high availability infrastructure that powers image delivery for some of the largest sites on the Internet.

The imgix Infrastructure team is responsible not just for building and operating the core imgix service, but also for encouraging operational best practices in the larger engineering organization. We seek experienced engineers who not only have strong professional skill sets but who are also passionate about making positive contributions to the evolution of their team members and the company as a whole.

About You:

  • Experience building and operating large-scale / web-scale consumer-facing production environments with a focus on performance, uptime, and service quality
  • In-depth knowledge of at least one of: CDNs, logging and metrics pipeline, monitoring, HTTP proxy, high-performance web services, customer-facing APIs, infrastructure security
  • Works well in a team with other motivated engineers but can also work independently and achieve results under limited supervision
  • Nice to have (but not required) experience in one or more of: Prometheus, Grafana, InfluxDB, HAProxy, Varnish, Chef, Python

 

About the role:

  • Build and operate highly reliable and performant systems at scale.
  • Observe and measure the imgix infrastructure for performance, reliability and correctness.
  • Contribute expertise towards architectural planning and ensure that the company builds services that meet our objectives, are operationally maintainable, and leverage the right tools and frameworks.
  • Foster and promote operational awareness within the engineering team.
  • Actively participate in the review and testing process for our production services.

 

imgix is building the future of visual media on the Internet. imgix operates the premier solution to deliver impactful, engaging, highly responsive and super fast imagery to eyeballs around the world. The service consists of a top tier image delivery platform tightly coupled with imgix's proprietary, on-demand image processing pipeline. It provides customers with great design flexibility while reducing the engineering investment required to serve state-of-the-art visual media. imgix enables our customers to greatly increase the value of their imagery and get back to building awesome things.

We are located in downtown San Francisco, close to BART, Caltrain, and a really good sandwich place. Employee benefits are comprehensive (401k, medical, dental and vision), perks are generous (catered lunches, paid rides home, the occasional team outing), vacation time is flexible, and salaries are commensurate with experience. We also provide employees with anything they (reasonably) need to be effective in their work: funky keyboards, standing desks, a desk cactus, and maybe even a laptop. The troposphere is the limit.
