  Company Description

Tradeshift is disrupting a stale e-invoicing, procure to pay, & financial solutions market. We are connecting companies of all sizes & providing them with the platform & network needed to create value from old processes like procurement, invoicing, payments, & workflow. Tradeshift is redefining an enterprise space that has seen little change in many years. We recognize that business is messy & business is social. Understanding these two facts drives the development of Tradeshift - a platform for all your business interactions.

About The Team

We are looking for an outstanding DevOps Engineer with the skills to bring new products to market & improve our existing platform & products. You will have the opportunity to make a difference as we strive to connect all of the companies in the world & make business applications better for people.

We believe in team-based component ownership, development & quality assurance. We expect engineer involvement from product inception through production support. Our teams have great autonomy & responsibility to choose the best solutions, technologies & approaches to bringing Tradeshift to the next level. Of course, this will not be easy; this role will face a lot of complex challenges in our growing, global, fast-paced startup.

Job Description

Do you believe in infrastructure as code? That repeatable work is something best handed off to your robot underlings? If so, Tradeshift is looking for a Platform Operations Engineer like you to join us in building our platform of the future.

We are experiencing a hockey stick of scale and, therefore, Tradeshift is looking for DevOps engineers to help us with keeping our platform running smoothly & efficiently.

The Tradeshift platform is hosted on AWS & composed of a number of Java applications (with a dash of node. js & Scala/Akka) using RabbitMQ, Elasticsearch, Riak, PostgreSQL, & Cassandra. All of our current infrastructure is highly automated with Jenkins, Rundeck, Puppet, Terraform, Docker, Kubernetes, Consul, etc playing key roles. We need someone who wants to face scalability challenges on a global level in this type of environment & automate things as much as possible.

We work based on an agile value set & try to minimize the formal process footprint - no more than it takes for everyone to remain sane & productive. On the engineering side of things, we subscribe to continuous integration with a lot of automated testing, extending to our infrastructure related code. We also fully subscribe to automation of the build & release processes, test/behavior driven development, etc.

Job responsibilities:

  • Keeping the platform running
  • Help engineering teams be effective
  • Helping with investigations & root cause analysis often in real time
  • Manage cloud provider operations cost
  • Be part of on-call duties for maintaining the platform

We are looking for people with skills in a non-insignificant number of the below areas:

  • Deep experience working in Linux based environments
  • Experience developing, releasing & iterating on distributed applications
  • Hashicorp technologies - Terraform, Vagrant, Consul, & Vault
  • Experience with configuration management technologies: Puppet, Chef or Ansible
  • Docker & Docker orchestration platforms such as Kubernetes & Helm
  • AWS services including but not limited to EC2, S3, CloudFront, Route53, EBS, SQS, etc.
  • Datastores such as PostgreSQL, Riak, Elasticsearch, Cassandra, etc.
  • CI/CD pipeline operation & automation
  • Designing architecture aiming horizontally scalable microservices
  • Cloud Design Patterns & Cloud Cost Models
  • Building, deploying & operating distributed SaaS software
  • Able to coordinate with diverse globally distributed teams
  • PCI DSS experience
  • Credit card software

A sample of what you'll be working on in the first six months:

  • Identifying & removing performance bottlenecks throughout the platform
  • Improving platform security implementations
  • Building & implementing new tools & automation to solve problems
  • Expanding our platform footprint as we roll out into additional regions
  • Working with other engineering teams to increase reliability & availability
