Software Engineer, Internal Tools

Remote or SF HQ Engineering

Company Overview

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.

We’re a venture-backed company, and so far we've raised ~$45M from Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins, Bloomberg, and prominent founders and professionals in our space.

Netlify is a diverse group of incredible talent from all over the world. We’re ~40% woman or non-binary, and are composed of about half as many nationalities as we are team members.

About the role:

Our infrastructure currently spans 7 clouds and 30+ regions, which can be a beast to wrangle. We are looking to enhance our tooling to help the different teams gain insight into the system and react faster to issues. We need someone that can focus on enabling our teams with internal tools and APIs. This person will be interfacing with our infrastructure in mission critical times, working along side the SRE team to help scope and define new tools that help scale the team and infrastructure to new heights.

Some of the things you'll be working on:

  • Automating more of our DDoS responses
  • Creating a system to have local development better reflect production
  • Defining tools to help speed up new service creation
  • Improving tooling for automatically handling CDN scaling
  • Streamlining our fraud and phishing responses

To be effective you'll benefit from experience in:

  • Developing in Go
  • Infrastructure tooling like kubernetes, terraform, and ansible
  • CI/CD pipelines and automation
  • Web and CDN structure and technologies
  • RESTful API development
