Wayfair is the 3rd largest GCP customer and as we continue to move our systems to GCP, you’ll have an opportunity to diagnose and solve complex problems as Wayfair doubles in size.

Specifically, we are looking for engineers who can help us drive adopting containers and Kubernetes (on-prem and cloud).

  • Contribute to design and implementation of CI/CD on top of Kubernetes / cloud platforms.
  • Improve and maintain the software and infrastructure that your team develops and operates.
  • Provide guidance and collaborate with cross-functional engineering teams to streamline and improve adoption of Kubernetes and Cloud within Wayfair.

What is in our scope:

  • The cluster infrastructure
  • Cluster design and provisioning
  • Interactions with the infrastructure via the API
  • Supporting the Wayfair Kubernetes community

What You’ll Need:

  • 5+ years of experience of server-side software engineering experience (Java or Go or Perl or Python etc) and/or
  • 5+ years of experience in infrastructure roles with strong fundamentals in Linux.
  • 5+ years of experience operating with TCP/IP, load-balancing, security and operating production environments.
  • Involvement in some on-premise to cloud migration, or some container adoption strategy.
