You have worked with programmable infrastructure in some way – Built a CI/CD pipeline, Provisioned infrastructure programmatically or Provisioned monitoring and logging infrastructure for large sets of machines.
You love automating things, sometimes even what seems like you can’t automate – such as one of our engineers used Ansible to set up the Ubuntu workstation and runs a playbook every time something has to be installed 🙂
You don’t throw around words such as “high availability” or “resilient systems” without understanding at least their basics. Because you know that words are easy to talk but there is a fair amount of work to build such a system in practice.
You love coaching people – about the 12-factor apps or the latest tool that reduced your time of doing a task by X times and so on. You lead by example when it comes to technical work and community.
You understand the areas you have worked on very well but, you are curious about many systems that you may not have worked on and want to fiddle with them.
You know that understanding applications and the runtime technologies gives you a better perspective – you never looked at them as two different things.
What you will be learning and doing?
You will be working with customers trying to transform their applications and adopt cloud-native technologies. The technologies used will be Kubernetes, Prometheus, Service Mesh, Distributed tracing and public cloud technologies or on-premise infrastructure.
The problems and solutions are continuously evolving in space but fundamentally you will be solving problems with simplest and scalable automation.
You will be building open source tools for problems that you think are common across customers and industry. No one ever benefited from re-inventing the wheel, did they?
You will be hacking around open source projects, understand their capabilities, limitations, and apply the right tool for the right job.
You will be educating the customers – from their operations engineers to developers on scalable ways to build and operate applications in modern cloud-native infrastructure.
We think InfraCloud is a rocketship you should join! InfraCloud has been working in cloud-native technologies with early innovators before Kubernetes was 1.0 and when it seemed like Mesos will become the standard! Our focus & history on an area of programmable infrastructure coupled with working with some innovative product companies give us some solid engineering challenges to work on. From one of our hackathons was born BotKube Project (https://github.com/infracloudio/botkube ) which was developed by our engineers and community over the last 1.5 years. When we started developing BotKube’s Microsoft Teams integration, another project was born - Go SDK for Teams (https://github.com/infracloudio/msbotbuilder-go ). We are also the second largest contributor as a company to Fission - a Serverless framework for Kubernetes (http://github.com/fission/fission). Another time an engineer working with a telecom company added support for 128bit tracing ID in Jaeger client. These are just some examples - and there are many more - do make a point to ask the engineers you talk to about more open source work we do. Our engineers are co-organizers of Kubernetes Pune, Docker Pune, PythonPune and can be found frequently speaking at local meetups and conferences.
