At Netlify, we’re building a platform to empower digital designers and developers to build better, more elaborate web projects than ever before. We’re aiming to change the landscape of modern web development. Netlify currently serves more than 1,000,000 developers worldwide.
Netlify is a diverse group of incredible talent from all over the world. We’re ~44% woman or non-binary, and are composed of more than a fourth as many nationalities as we are team members.
We recently raised $63M in Series C funding to bring forward the next generation of tooling for a more accessible web. Among our investors are Andreessen Horowitz, Kleiner Perkins, EQT Ventures as well as the founders of GitHub, Slack, Figma and Yelp. This latest round brings Netlify’s funding raised in total to $107M to date.
As a Sr. Backend Infrastructure Engineer with our Traffic & Delivery team, you’ll be working with interesting problems related to large scale systems with high throughput. On average, our platform processes over a petabyte of data and we serve over 8% of the internet's traffic! On our team, you'll work with a smart set of people that are really motivated to keep learning and continuing to grow each other in a supportive way. We have a blameless culture where we solve everything as a team and everyone works together towards a common goal. The Traffic & Delivery team works across a variety of technologies to solve problems around the massive traffic that we receive on the platform, so if you're excited about working in complex Go, Rust, or C++ code, you'll have plenty of opportunities to do so with our team!
We value asynchronous communication and work with a globally distributed team that works remotely across North American and European timezones. The team reports to the Director of Infrastructure and works closely with the CTO.
The mission of our Platform team is to build a system that can support millions of customer sites, and the supporting features they leverage. In this role, you'll be designing and implementing fault-tolerant distributed systems. The platform is at the core of Netlify, so you'll be developing software that powers the lifecycle of a web request, enables developers to interact with the edge, and strives for better availability and higher throughput. This includes functionality like Edge Lambda invocation, caching & invalidation, request rules, pre-rendering, and logging aggregation. The platform is built on top of 6 different cloud providers and is truly global, supporting constant traffic from all over the world. We move quickly and adjust to changing priorities and conditions, and you'll be able to help us focus on key priorities and pragmatic solutions.
In addition that that project, the team will also be undertaking a series of projects to completely overhaul the way we serve content. This is a complex interaction between multiple services that are getting a constant load. The goal will be to distribute more knowledge onto the edge so that we can make more decisions there. The change will help scale the architecture to handle the ever-increasing load while simplifying some key components, all while pulling this off with no customer interruptions.
Of everything we've ever built at Netlify, we are most proud of our team.
We believe that empowered, engaged colleagues do their best work. We’ll be giving you the tools you need to succeed and looking to you for suggestions to improve not just in your daily job, but every aspect of building a company. Whether you work from our main office in San Francisco or you are a remote employee, we’ll be working together a lot—paring, collaborating, debating, and learning. We want you to succeed! About 60% of the company are remote across the globe, the rest are in our HQ in San Francisco.
