Who we are
Eaze is a cannabis software platform and marketplace that connects adult consumers with licensed dispensaries and products. Eaze uses a sophisticated logistics and technology platform to provide fast delivery of a broad variety of cannabis products across California. We are on a mission to enhance safe access to legal cannabis, educate people about cannabis as a tool for wellness, and drive smart cannabis policies. We are looking to add a Senior Infrastructure Engineer to our engineering team. At Eaze, you will work with a world class team of engineers representing a wide range of backgrounds and strengths.
What you’ll do
As part of Eaze’s infrastructure team, you’ll work on improving the environment that Eaze’s services are deployed to; zealously keeping deploys fast, reliable, and ergonomic, while expanding the deploy flows to new technologies; securing Eaze’s systems; supporting its current software system; and building new tools as needed to enable Eaze’s next-generation software. To succeed in this role you should understand that your customer is the other engineers you’re enabling and champion them. This means caring about their experience writing and releasing code. It means making it easy to do the right thing instead of making it hard to do the wrong thing. It means being as open as you can be, taking responsibility for your work, but as the custodian of the infrastructure — not the owner. It means thinking holistically about our systems and the impact of your actions on them. You should also enjoy automation, modeling security threats, making sure the systems you work on are observable so the team as a whole can usefully understand how their systems behave. We also encourage learning new technologies as well as teaching your colleagues about the technologies you understand.
Technologies Used
Eaze’s current infrastructure stack uses these technologies, and experience with some subset of them is useful. Mastery is not required.
– AWS: mostly EC2, RDS, Lambdas, and ALBs
– Ubuntu
– GitHub Actions
– Terraform
– Ansible
– Packer
– Cloudflare
– bash
We do not plan to move into Docker-centric deployments. We do not plan to move into language ecosystems other than JavaScript and Rust.
Nice-to-haves include experience with Honeycomb.io, edge proxies like Envoy and haproxy, and edge caches like varnish.
Why you should join
In joining the Eaze team, you’ll be welcomed into a small but dedicated engineering organization. We are a highly collaborative team built on trust and patience. We learn from each other and provide support for when things inevitably don’t go as planned. Every engineer is encouraged to own their work and drive projects regardless of tenure or title.
As an organization, we are keenly aware of the injustice of the war on drugs – which for so many years has been used to incarcerate Black and Latinx people on a massive scale. We are always trying to do our part to support these communities, whether it’s through the promotion of social equity brands or funding historically excluded cannabis business founders through our accelerator program.
We are committed to growing a diverse and welcoming team in a safe space to be yourself and learn from your colleagues. Minorities, women, and LGBTQIA+ people are encouraged to apply! # Where we can hire Eaze has offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles, but our engineering organization is fully remote and distributed all across the United States!
