  • Comprehensive review of capacity metrics for server fleet
  • Identify capacity-related issues proactively and work with systems, network, and engineering teams to discover resolutions 

What We'll Expect From You:

  • You have strong analytical and communication skills, a risk mitigation mindset and exhibit appropriate levels of urgency
  • You have working knowledge of corporate financial planning cycles, terminologies and interdependencies between supply chain and accounting
  • You are well versed with data structures, using Excel and/or SQL, to build reports and make recommendations

That means we maintain a growth mindset in everything we do and invest deeply in employee development.  You’ll need to be great to get hired here and we promise you’ll get even better.
  • We care about you. We offer competitive health, dental, and vision benefits for employees and their dependents, a monthly gym reimbursement to support your physical health, and a monthly commute allowance to make your trips to and from work easier.
  • We invest in your future. We offer competitive compensation and a 401k plan with up to a 4% employer match. We also provide all employees with Kindles and reimbursement for relevant conferences, training, and education.
  • We want you to love where you work. We have great office spaces located in the heart of SoHo NYC and Cambridge, and offer daily catered lunches to keep your hunger at bay. We’re also very remote-friendly—we use Slack to communicate across the company—and all remote employees have the opportunity to take an all-expense-paid trip to our office to get quality in-person time with the team at least once a year. We also allow employees to customize their workstations to meet their needs—whether remote or in office.
