Here at Lightricks, a unicorn and an award-winning apps startup, we are in the process of scaling up our cloud systems in order to expand to new markets and meet the growth in our user base. We’re looking for an experienced backend cloud engineer to join our cloud infrastructure team.
Our ideal candidate is someone with a systematic problem-solving approach, coupled with strong communication skills, a sense of ownership and drive. Someone who is just as passionate as we are about the craft of software engineering and system architecture. Someone who believes that writing resilient code and reliable infrastructure are necessities in the current software landscape, but can still appreciate the realities of business and can deliver on a tight schedule in a fast-paced environment. An individual who loves learning, understands the value of teamwork and cherishes the feedback of other talented engineers.
Our cloud core infrastructure team is responsible for designing, building and maintaining core services that are used by other backend teams in the company and some are directly integrated into our products and serve our customers directly. As a member of the team you will:
Design and develop reliable and scalable production core services that are used by millions of users of our apps every day.
Design, build and maintain cloud infrastructure that will provide a reliable and scalable platform for other teams to build on.
Improve systems’ reliability through mechanisms like testing, automation and monitoring.
Learn and apply industry best practices and share this knowledge with other teams through guidance, lectures and workshops.
