Golang / Go Job: Platform Engineer


Platform Engineer at Pantheon

San Francisco, California, United States 🇺🇸   (Posted Jun 20 2018)
About the company
Top developers, marketers, and IT professionals use Pantheon to build, launch and run all their Drupal & WordPress websites. Pantheon goes beyond hosting, delivering all the tools professional developers need to build best-practice sites—like staging environments, version control, backups and workflow. All Pantheon sites include a fully integrated global CDN and HTTPS, making it the most complete platform to manage Website Operations.

Powering 200,000+ sites and billions of monthly pageviews, Pantheon’s container-based infrastructure allows customers to launch websites faster without worrying about traffic spikes, security, or performance. It’s free in development. You can scale in software on the same infrastructure from day one, and never touch a server again.

Job position
Permanent - Remote work possible

Job description
The Role

Pantheon is looking for an experienced Platform Engineer to join our team, either remote or onsite at our SF or Minneapolis (on US hours.) We’re expanding an impressive and growing platform that powers hundreds of thousands of websites, millions of containerized resources, billions of monthly page views, and development tools that professional website developers use on a daily basis.

Along the way, we’ve written tools to manage containers at scale, built a massive multi-tenant distributed file system, contributed to open source communities (WordPress, Drupal, Fedora, Chef, systemd, cURL, Sensu…) and a whole lot more.

We have a lot more growing to do though! Your expertise will help us continue to innovate and manage complexity even as we grow in size, feature depth and across datacenters.

Cool Stuff You'll Do

Implementation of proof-of-concepts, prototypes, and systems at scale

Improved visibility into how distributed services interact and scale in production

Close collaboration with the wider engineering team to both deliver platform improvements and provide subject-matter-expertise for other technical initiatives

Continuous improvements to our standard of engineering excellence by implementing best practices for coding, testing, deploying and communication

Cool Stuff You'll Get in Return

We have all the usual benefits and perks you'd expect from a high tech company, but what we can really offer you is a fantastic work environment powered by an amazing team.

In addition,Pantheon's Engineering team contributes to many Open Source projects, including Fedora, Systemd, Sensu, and Drupal. Our core mission is based on Open Source Content Management Systems, and our stack is built upon Open Source. See more about our contributions at https://getpantheon.com/opensource

And oh yeah, some other things to note:

fun at WordPress and Drupal community events

discounts on custom bicycles - the founders of Pantheon also founded Mission Bicycle

dog friendly office

fully loaded kitchen and daily catered lunches

monthly gym and book allowance

kombucha on tap and omg...did you say Its-Its are in the freezer?

Skills & requirements
What You Bring To The Table

Knowledge of large-scale, high traffic platforms and the design of scalable, robust services in the real world

An affinity for service-oriented architecture and eagerness to move amongst many codebases in multiple languages

Understanding of Linux containerization technology and applications

Experience developing software services hosted in the cloud and distributed cloud systems (Google Cloud / AWS)

Passion and integrity (and humor) that makes our team better as a whole

Bonus points for:

Experience developing software services spanning multiple data centers

Experience with Linux containerization technology at scale (cgroups, namespaces, Docker, rkt)

Experience with using (or choosing not to use!) Kubernetes, Cassandra, Fedora, systemd, Elasticsearch, Twisted Python, Redis and MariaDB

Polyglot chops: we code in Golang, Python, Ruby, C and Coffeescript

Diversity of thought and experience
