As asset owners engage in more complex, data-driven investment approaches to asset allocation, their demand for high quality data has skyrocketed. 



Our software efficiently evaluates portfolios, offers deep insights and helps mitigate operational risk to power investment decisions running on the JVM and deployed into and AWS-managed Kubernetes cluster (EKS) accessing multiple datastores provisioned inside and outside of our won AWS accounts.

This position is working on a team to build out our portfolio performance infrastructure and as a result, these are the kinds of activities you will likely work on in the foreseeable future:

  • Configure and managing infrastructure with code driven through a delivery pipeline
  • Tune and update the CI/CD pipeline in Gitlab after discussion with development team
  • Build a ChatOps bot to help all engineers optimize their workflow
  • Configure and tune JVM options for Scala services running in containers in EKS
  • Configure k8s resources such as virtualservices, pods, etc using a configuration management tool (e.g. dhall-kubernetes, helm, helmfile) 
  • Ensure Nix developer environment has all relevant infrastructure tooling developers require
  • Setup and maintain cluster infrastructure for collecting instrumentation and logs to relay to the appropriate destinations (e.g. Honeycomb, CloudWatch Logs, etc.)
  • Help developers troubleshoot issues after service deployments
  • Provide ways to improve observability of the services and EKS cluster

## Technical Stack

  • *Ops: * Kubernetes (EKS), ALBS, CloudFront, S3, Nix, Docker, Lambda, Terraform, Honeycomb, Gitlab CI

## Process / Workflow

Our process and workflow currently resembles Kanban but we aren’t religious about process, we try to make it work for the team. Our goal is to make developers able to work as self-directed as they want to be while still keeping the business side updated with progress and problems. 

## Ideal Candidate
