Job Description

We connect people in the most human way possible when physically apart.

We are passionate about communication. As technology evolves, it is increasingly possible to enjoy meaningful social experiences - beyond a feed - with friends and family, regardless of physical distance.

Social interactions are incredibly diverse in nature, and we’re building a virtual space that works for all of them. By doing so, we empower people to have more frequent conversations with those they care about, build meaningful relationships, and have fun together.

Site Reliability at the Company

We provide a group video chat application built around presence. We care deeply about ensuring a seamless, top quality multimedia experience for every one of our users.

We also provide a fundamentally new type of product, and are vigorously experimental in turning our application into the best possible version of itself.

As a site reliability engineer, you can expect to work with a small team across these challenges. You will drive a variety of projects that blur the boundaries of site reliability, DevOps, and infrastructure engineering. These include scalability and performance monitoring, internal tooling, system and process automation, and a responsibility for the health of our production infrastructure.

Here are some things we look for: 
- A passion for infrastructure, automation, reliability, debugging, and building something meaningful 
- Excellent systems-level analytical skills, and an ability to move up and down the stack 
- A deep understanding of Linux 
- Basic sysadmin skills (install a host, upgrade a box, format a disc, etc) 
- Experience with cloud infrastructure at scale (>100 nodes), relational and non-relational databases (we use Postgres, Redis) 
- Experience with container frameworks (Kubernetes, Docker, etc) 
- Comfort with a few scripting and programming languages (Bash, Go, Python, Scala, etc) 
- Knowledge of configuration management systems/config-as-code (we use Terraform), as well as common CI/CD tools (we use Jenkins) 
- Knowledge of causes of load and latency, the differences between them, and how to minimize both 
- A data-conscious, iterative approach to debugging, problem-solving, and development in general 
- A strong grasp of computer science fundamentals 
- Knowing how to not do things that will take down our entire system (but seriously) 
- Creativity

What to include with your application: 
- Links to any online profiles (Github, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc) 
- A description of your professional experience (resume, LinkedIn profile, cover letter, or similar)

While this list is not exhaustive, we also don't require in-depth experience with everything mentioned. For instance, some of our engineers will focus much more on the tools & automation side of things, where others are experts with large scale distributed systems.

We are a product for everyone, and we are proud to reflect that internally. We value an inclusive workplace, where people enjoy helping one another grow and accomplish goals.

From project management to team structure, we are cross-functional by design. Members of the Infrastructure team frequently collaborate with the Design team on UX concepts, contribute ideas to the product roadmap, and develop testable theories about user behaviors and interests. We believe that these practices promote transparency and well-roundedness.

If our passion for crafting a better way to share time resonates with you, then we would love to review your application.
