Senior Cloud Engineer

Professional Services Seattle, Washington

Site Reliability Engineering positions are available on ExtraHop’s PAAS
team. We are looking for highly motivated software engineers to run and
automate our Kubernetes clusters located around with world. Your role will
be to create systems and process to accomplish the work that in most
organizations is performed manually. We take CI/CD seriously, we typically
release our PaaS or one of its hosted services daily. It is not unusual to
hear the words, “we have a new product idea that we want in production in 3 months”.

A successful candidate will have a good working knowledge of a few these
technologies (AWS, Kurbenetes, Docker, Terraform, Packer, Go, Python, Bash,
Network Security Best Practices, Calico, Gitlab). A desire to become expert
in a few of them, and develop a working knowledge of the rest going
forward. You should have the mindset; that if I do something twice, the
third time I automate it; fast enough and good enough never happen; the
success of our customers, products, and teams is the first priority.

We have a global and diverse user base—we believe in actively investing in a diverse engineering organization. We are seeking technically-qualified people from all backgrounds, who offer dynamic perspectives, influences, and experiences. Are you as passionate as we are about positive culture and amazing technology? If you are, we can't wait to chat with you.

Are you looking to make an impact? Do you love seeing your work implemented and hearing how your contributions have made a difference? ExtraHop offers an exciting, high energy, and versatile environment in which people are encouraged and supported to collaborate on industry-leading technology while they develop and enrich their individual growth. And we're doing it with creativity, intellectual curiosity, and a sense of humor (it's required here, seriously).
