Senior Cloud Engineer - The Edge


The Senior Cloud Engineer at the Edge will have the chance to influence the decisions of a brand new organization. We’re a small but capable team. Cloud Engineers within the Edge team are trusted to own major parts of the cloud infrastructure and deployment pipelines, and we expect you to thrive as a leader in defining and solving problems, with support from your peers.

Cloud Engineers at the Edge will help develop and automate cloud native solutions, leveraging Google Cloud Platform. In addition, you will build out and maintain DevOps infrastructure that allows our software engineers and product team to be productive and deploy solutions quickly.

  • We believe that a high-quality team and high-quality code are critical pieces of our mission. The infrastructure behind it all is no different. Working closely with our software engineering team, you will focus on improving developer experience by creating CI/CD pipelines, writing Terraform scripts to provision infrastructure as code, and creating workflows. You will constantly be looking to improve the tooling we already have, and look to improve processes around the software development lifecycle by supporting static code analysis reports, creating test automation frameworks, and reporting on code quality. You will also help maintain critical pieces of application infrastructure including compute resources and GKE clusters through monitoring and operational best practices. Lastly, you will work with the analytics team to build a feedback loop to constantly improve on what we’ve already built.
