  • Core infrastructure tools and frameworks (Configuration Management, IAM, WAF, CI/CD, Infrastructure as Code, Monitoring, HA, etc.)
  • Working with Public Cloud, e.g. Google Cloud Platform, AWS, etc.
  • Collaborate across Engineering and Product teams to translate application requirements to infrastructure capabilities
  • Maintaining an automation centric vision and incorporating SRE methodologies in an effort to increase reliability and decreasing toil
  • Involvement in technical design and architecture discussions and decisions as well as contributing to technical troubleshooting in various part of the stack

What's Great About It?

  • You will have the opportunity to contribute greatly to an extremely engineering-focused organization.
  • Your contributions will have a noticeable impact on our members as well as your fellow Karmanauts (that’s what we call ourselves).
  • You will be involved in organizational efforts of continuous improvement to increase and ensure the reliability of Credit Karma.
  • You will get broad exposure to our full stack, consisting of desired and progressive technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, Google Cloud Platform, Jenkins, etc.
  • You will grow and learn and have fun doing it--it’s part of our culture.
  • And, of course, all those awesome company perks that you have probably already read about.

Our ideal candidate:

  • 8+ years of experience in a web-centric Linux production environment building and architecting infrastructure to scale modern web applications and supporting components.
  • Strong understanding of Computer Engineering with a focus on Infrastructure, Platform, and Application (Cloud, Network, Application Reliability, Database Architecture).
  • Demonstrable knowledge of TCP/IP, HTTP, web application security, and experience supporting multi-tier web application architectures.
  • Experience running Infrastructure at scale; utilizing Configuration Management and automation to ensure idempotency, ephemerality, and reliability.
  • Advanced knowledge of Python or other higher-level OOP languages (eg. Ruby, GoLang, etc).
  • Familiar with SRE methodologies and passionate about solving operation problems by utilizing automation and software.
  • Ability to communicate effectively vertically and horizontally within the organization via demonstrated written and verbal communication skills.
