Blockchain is the world's leading software platform for digital assets. Offering the largest production blockchain platform in the world, we share the passion to code, create, and ultimately build an open, accessible and fair financial future, one piece of software at a time.

We are looking for a Site Reliability Engineer to join our Core team to encourage infrastructure best practices across our organization that would allow to securely scale a distributed financial platform that touches millions of people a day.

Our distributed financial platform tackles some of the most interesting problems in the crypto for millions of our customers and continues to grow rapidly.

We pride ourselves on having created an environment where individuals have a high degree of freedom in proposing, discussing, designing and implementing changes. We are a team that places a high value on abstract thinking to deliver exceptionally effective tooling. We abhor toil.

As a member of the Core team you will be tasked with developing an in-depth understanding of the infrastructure needs of our products. You will establish and maintain creative engineering solutions to improve our customers’ experience by building necessary tooling. Crucially, you will also guide and guiding and educating developer teams so that they can deliver new features in a rapid, secure and scalable manner.

  • You will centralise wherever possible common streams of work that are currently duplicated across developer teams.
  • You will focus heavily on writing tooling to replace manual, repetitive work in a scalable way.
  • You will work in a fast paced, and dynamic environment complementing our existing high calibre team.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

  • Experience with containerization and service orchestration, including best practices and security. Experience with Hashicorp Nomad, Consul and Vault is a plus.
  • Strong knowledge of at least one programming language. Experience with Golang, Python, and Bash is a plus.

  • Experience working with cloud solutions (GCP or AWS).
  • Deep understanding and demonstrable experience with modern monitoring tools such as Prometheus, Datadog, Grafana, Telegraf
  • Experience with infrastructure as code tools. Experience with complex Terraform deployments is a plus.
  • Solid background with configuration management tools. Experience with Saltstack is a plus.
  • Experience with using GitOps and CI to make changes, preferably Github Actions.
  • Experience with messaging systems such as Kafka.
  • Experience with database management.
  • Experience working in Data Centers is a plus.
  • Knowledge of routing and switching protocols is a plus.
