Clicktripz is among a rare set of winners in the tech space that have grown the old-fashioned way, by generating profits. How does this benefit you? When the 'venture funded' startups have burnt through their cash, Clicktripz will still be growing, and so will your career. If you're looking to join a small, nimble team while making a high level of impact without the high risk of a pre-revenue or pre-profit startup, then this company might be for you. This is a fluid environment where innovation is the only constant. They seek self-starters with massive brains minus the big egos. They take pride in fostering an environment that supports a healthy work-life balance. They like what they’ve built, they like what they do, and they like working with each other. They're excited about the future and hope you can join them.

Your Mission:

Clicktripz is continuously upgrading and innovating their infrastructure to keep their network humming. As an engineer on their Platform team, you will provide high-leverage solutions that empower product development teams to deliver their applications at scale, giving them the tools and services to manage their own deployments in a self-service Kubernetes-based environment.

In this role, expect to:

  • Manage a multi-cluster, multi-region Kubernetes platform handling billions of requests a month across the globe.
  • Work closely with product engineering teams, giving them the tools and skills to deploy, maintain, and monitor their applications on our platform.
  • Monitor the state of health of the infrastructure, helping to diagnose the root cause of errors and alerts when they occur — better yet, before they occur.
  • Identify opportunities to incorporate new technologies or techniques into our workflow that improve service reliability and/or increase automation of rote tasks.

To succeed in this role, you:

  • Have experience provisioning and managing cloud infrastructure, ideally in Amazon Web Services.
  • Grok the web stack; you can manage SSL certificates and DNS entries in your sleep.
  • Get a little twitchy when you see infrastructure provisioned outside of Terraform (or CloudFormation or insert-your-preferred-IaC-tool-here).
  • Are a fast learner and passionate about discovering new technologies.
  • Have an eye for security, striving to minimize attack surfaces and vulnerabilities.
  • Come with strong opinions on how to simplify and improve our stack.
  • Are comfortable wearing a Solutions Engineer hat, helping teams to troubleshoot their Kubernetes deployments on issues ranging from ingress routing to resource allocation to permissions administration.

Even if you’re early in your DevOps career journey, you are:

  • Prepared to handle frontline support including being independently resourceful about troubleshooting
  • Interested in continually learning all facets of a DevOps stack (AWS, Kubernetes, GitOps, Airflow, legacy Ansible, etc.)
  • Willing to take on a few repetitive tasks (such as editing config files and running scripts to propagate changes)
