The Tidepool Platform is the foundation of everything we do. As Backend Engineer, you will have a hand in maintaining our platform which is used by both our homegrown applications and an ecosystem of third-party applications.
In addition to your responsibilities as a Backend engineer (which you will share with the Ops team), you will be a full member of the DevOps team, where you will participate in the on-call rotation for all backend services.
The ideal candidate has:
Qualifications Experience with one or more tools in each category: * Languages: Golang, Nodejs, Python * IaaS Platforms: AWS, OpenStack, DigitalOcean, etc. * Service Mesh: Linkerd, Istio * API Gateways: Gloo, Ambassador, Contour, Envoy, Nginx, etc. * Distributed Tracing: Jaeger, Honeycomb, OpenTelemetry, OpenCensus, OpenTracing, Zipkin, Lightstep * Visualization and Monitoring: Grafana, PagerDuty * Logging: FluentD, FluentBit, Sumo Logic, Rollbar, Splunk, etc. * Continuous/Progressive Deployment: Flux/GitOps, Argo, Flagger * Continuous Integration: JenkinsX, TravisCI, CircleCI, Jenkins, GitHub Actions, etc. * Scripting: Jsonnet, Bash, Python, etc. * Networking: DNS, Routing, Firewalls, Load balancers, etc. * Databases: MongoDB or other NoSQL database, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Time Series Database Keeps up-to-date with changes in the Kubernetes landscape, and can discern which technologies are good to adopt, and which are still too bleeding edge (but which we should keep an eye on)
Additional Information Most of the Tidepool team has a personal connection to diabetes. If you don’t, that’s cool, but you should have demonstrated empathy for other chronic conditions, and be prepared to learn about and have empathy for the diabetes experience.
This is a remote position – you’ll be working from home and interacting with a team that works around the world, currently in 14 states and 5 countries. However, we do not offer work visa sponsorship.
