Junior Systems 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 a Junior Systems 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 improving new ways to help increase the velocity of the infrastructure team.

What You'll Do

  • Refine internal tools that help to coordinate and manage all our applications
  • Improve workflow automation for the team
  • Participate in on-call schedule in local timezone
  • Assist in monitoring, problem-solving and issue resolution for application teams
  • Monitor, analyze, and report on infrastructure resource requirements

Who You Are

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. In addition, you have the following:

  • 1+ year of Cloud (Azure/AWS/GCP) or VPS (DigitalOcean/Linode) experience
  • Basic Linux administration experience
  • Experience with configuration management systems such as Ansible, Chef, Puppet, Salt
  • Familiarity with Relational and Non-relational datastores
  • Scripting in Bash, Python, Ruby, or other interpreted language
  • Experience with continuous integration, delivery, testing, and code deployment (using tools such as Jenkins or Travis CI)

Job Perks

  • A competitive base salary and equity stake in a well-funded growth stage company
  • A culture that places the product first. We are a technology company at heart, and are proud of the idea that great technology drives great user experience
  • A laid-back, fun workplace designed to facilitate collaboration and company wide events
  • $120/mo to spend on tickets to live events
  • A superb benefits package, including full health/dental/vision
  • A focus on transparency. We have regular team lunches and Q&A panels where employees can chat openly with teams across SeatGeek, our co-founders, and external guests from the industry
  • Hackathons: scheduled times when everyone drops what they’re doing and builds cool stuff in small groups
  • The opportunity to write code that is used outside of SeatGeek - we've open-sourced numerous projects and made them available on GitHub
