ConsenSys is the leading blockchain software company. We enable developers, enterprises, and people worldwide to build next-generation applications, launch modern financial infrastructure, and access the decentralized web. Our product suite, composed of Infura, Quorum, Codefi, MetaMask, and Diligence, serves millions of users, supports billions of blockchain-based queries for our clients, and has handled billions of dollars in digital assets. Ethereum is the largest programmable blockchain in the world, leading in business adoption, developer community, and decentralized finance activity. On this trusted, open source foundation, we are building the digital economy of tomorrow.
Infura is the leading API and infrastructure provider for decentralized networks like Ethereum, IPFS, and Filecoin. We are a team of world class engineers who own our code from design to production operations. As a globally distributed team we prize great communication skills, collaboration, and a can-do attitude to deliver maximum value to our customers. Infura embraces Agile methodologies such as sprints, retrospectives, and blameless post-mortems.
We build resilient, highly available systems running at internet scale. Operating our systems is a shared responsibility and observability is a first class citizen. We work with modern cloud native systems and have a deep understanding of technology that our software runs in.
What you’ll get to work on:
Be part of a world-class infrastructure and tools team responsible for core Infura engineering projects. The SRE team is an integral part of supporting a globally available, high performance service. Modern tools and practices help our developers work safely and efficiently.
As part of the SRE team, you would be leading the way to champion and document best practices building tooling for observability, test automation, CI/CD, infrastructure as code, single pane of glass observability, and execution tracing. The SRE team is the subject matter expert that helps evangelize and ensure best practices are employed from design to production.
The ideal candidate would have 5+ years in a devops, system operations, or SRE role. They have extensive experience troubleshooting, debugging, and working with microservice, cloud native, or distributed systems. They maintain a high level of excellence with regards to best practices in security, compliance, high availability, and system resilience. Infura maintains cloud based systems, so deep experience with one or more cloud providers (bonus for AWS) is preferrable.
What we work with
We work with infrastructure as code tools (e.g. Pulumi, terraform), containers and container orchestration (e.g. Kubernetes, ECS); event source / message based architectures (e.g. Kafka); frontend applications (e.g. React, nodejs, etc); both RDBMS and NoSQL Datastores (e.g. Postgres, Mongo, Redis, DynamoDb); Linux based operating systems; and of course blockchain and DLT.
Don’t check all of the boxes? Don’t sweat it. We’re passionate about building a diverse team of humans and as such, if you think you’ve got what it takes to create a world-class infrastructure and tools function in our chaotic-but-fun, remote first, start-up environment—apply anyway. While we have a pretty good idea of what we need, we’re ready for you to challenge our thinking on who needs to be in this role.
