Infrastructure Engineer
SeatGeek has more services than developers. That means automation has to be the default when it comes to deploying and testing our platforms.

As an Infrastructure Engineer, you'll be implementing tooling to allow developers to move faster as the infrastructure evolves around them. When you're not working on platform enhancements, you'll be designing and testing new ways of developing against and interacting with our infrastructure.

What You'll Be Doing

  • Working closely with Developers to increase local development productivity
  • Contributing to our deployment pipeline
  • Helping application teams profile and optimize their services in production
  • Building tools to make working with our existing monitoring/logging infrastructure easier for developers

What We're Looking For

The ideal candidate will be someone who loves building web apps but also has a keen interest for how they're deployed and run. You make decisions based on data and are not afraid of experimenting to get the information you need.

  • At least 2 years of professional software engineering experience
  • Some experience automating code deployments.
  • Understanding of Unix systems/tools.
  • Expert with at least one language and good with several others.
  • AWS experience is a big plus, but not strictly necessary.
  • Experience with a wide variety of open source software.

The Tools We Use

We work with the development team to pick the right tool for the job, and as such we deploy quite a diverse stack. You absolutely do not need experience with all of these, but we thought you might be curious.

  • Languages: Go, Javascript/Node, Lua, Perl, PHP, Python, R, Ruby, C#, Scala
  • Datastores: Elasticsearch, MySQL, Postgres, Redshift, RabbitMQ, Redis, DynamoDB
  • Server: Nginx, Gunicorn, Thin and friends
  • Deployment: Debian Packaging for servers, Apex for Lambda
  • Monitoring: InfluxDB, Graylog, New Relic, Sentry
  • Tools: Ansible, Chef, Packer, Vagrant
  • Version control: Git

Job Perks

  • A competitive base salary and equity stake in a well-funded growth stage company
  • A culture where the product is king
  • $120/mo to spend on tickets to live events
  • A laid-back, fun workplace with an endless supply of snacks/coffee/beer, frequent team lunches, and social jaunts organized by Eric Waller, our official Social Chair
  • The opportunity to write code that is used outside of SeatGeek, e.g. we've opensourced our a/b testing framework, Sixpack, our Redis-backed autocompleting service, Soulmate, and our Python string matching library, FuzzyWuzzy
  • A superb benefits package, including full health/dental/vision
  • Hackathons: scheduled times when everyone drops what they’re doing and builds cool stuff in small groups
