About the Role:

We are continuing to invest and grow our Cloud Engineering team at Redpanda. We are looking for a Cloud Software Engineer who is up for the challenge to not only build the systems but to lift Redpanda into the Azure cloud, but also shape the technical culture that creates these systems. There are exciting challenges to solve and opportunities to learn from the very best. Come join us to partner closely with product and cross functional engineering teams to build and design together, the very best present and future of real-time data.

You Will:

  • Work with all the engineering teams on building new services, with an early focus on bringing Azure cloud functionality up to feature parity with our other clouds 
  • Automate the infrastructure lifecycle on Kubernetes and monitor our services with the goal of offering a reliable, scalable, and high-performance SaaS
  • Make resilience and observability integral to the system, enabling us to run a managed, cloud-based streaming-as-a-service with >99.9% uptime
  • Build & design Redpanda’s cloud infrastructure with reliability and performance in mind
  • Build tools & services to allow automated infrastructure provisioning and self-healing, including deployments and upgrades
  • Participate in on-call rotations, working to keep customer workloads running and incident-free
  • Build control planes based on Kubernetes for our multi-cloud, managed streaming-as-a-service offering

You Have:

  • Solid understanding of Azure, AKS, and networking services
  • Good knowledge of at least one other top-tier public cloud, such as AWS or GCP
  • Strong understanding of Go and Kubernetes
  • Experience with Terraform and managing infrastructure as code
  • 4+ years of experience building SaaS products
  • Willingness to participate in on-call rotation
  • Comfortable working with 100% distributed engineering team
  • Collaborate on GitHub
  • Experience managing infrastructure predictably through GitOps and IaC.  Note that this is not a pure "devops" role; you will need more than scripting experience in order to qualify
  • Excellent written communication skills

Nice to have:

  • Experience building a SaaS platform
  • Operated and used streaming platforms either as a user or provider
  • Cloud engineering experience
