Senior System Engineer

Typeform works on the future of online forms. The most important interaction on the web is the exchange of information between a brand and its audience. And that exchange usually happens through online forms. We believe that even a utility like online forms should be remarkable. Our customers say they get more answers from their audience and even the occasional compliment. Make every interaction count.

Typeform is a team of nearly 200 people representing over 30 countries. We have offices in Barcelona, Spain and in San Francisco, United States.

Are you focused on automation so you can focus on evolving the product infrastructure and making things better? Do you like to keep things running smoothly, and are able to keep a cool head? Are you passionate about building and operating the best possible infrastructure? If that sounds like you, then we should talk.

We’re looking for a talented, passionate, and pragmatic Senior Systems Engineer to join our team of 44 different nationalities in Barcelona.

Here’s Matias, our Product Infrastructure Team Lead:

“A day at Typeform is starting, first, with a morning drink at the barception and then ready to start investigating on how to upgrade a Kubernetes cluster, resolve some random requests trying to automate them and working paired with a dev team to deliver their new service to production. Never boring!

You’ll work closely with our engineering teams to create unbeatable human experiences.

We put fun at the heart of everything we do—and set ambitious goals to push things forward. Come help us shape the future of online data collection.

The Role

Are you someone that likes to keep everything running? Are you focused on automation so you can keep making things better, rather than fire fighting all the time? Are you organized, proactive, and able to keep a cool head? Are you passionate about building and maintaining the best infrastructure possible? Are you always “on” and ready to solve the next problem? Are you a good human being? If that sounds like you, then we should talk. 

Key responsibilities:

  • Help design and run our cloud infrastructure in Amazon Web Services
  • Run applications  (PHP, Go, NodeJS, etc) on an Orchestration platform using tools like Kubernetes, Terraform and Docker
  • Ensure that all pieces are under appropriate monitoring and logging
  • Maintain and automate test environments for devs and QA
  • Ensure service availability and be part of an on-call rotation
  • Keep our infrastructure clean, our servers cool, and our beloved Typeform alive
  • Create tools to give developers more autonomy over the platform in which their services run, so they can own the deployment lifecycle, monitoring, etc

Requirements:

  • Experience with configuration management tools—ensure changes are always applied by code
  • Knowledge with MySQL and/or PostgreSQL
  • Comfortable programming in Python, Go, Bash or others, and writing tests for it!
  • Experience on Kubernetes, DC/OS or Docker Swarm.
  • Knowledge on basic protocols like TCP/IP, HTTP, DNS and debugging traffic.
  • Experience with HTTP tools like Nginx, Varnish, HAproxy
  • Happy to share goals with developers, and want changes to be deployed sooner rather than later
  • Speak English fluently

For bonus points, you:

  • Understand the importance of Continuous Delivery concepts and processes
  • Have deep and broad AWS knowledge
  • Have worked with self-healing systems, auto scaling, etc
  • Have previous experience handling high amounts of traffic
  • Have vast experience with schedulers like Kubernetes, Mesos/Marathon or similar with some sort of service mesh in use.
