As an Infrastructure Engineer, you’ll be part of a small team of engineers who are ultimately responsible for the production infrastructure which powers our retail brokerage business. We care about the speed and stability of our back-end systems as much as we care about the customer-facing applications we build. Our architecture is consistently evolving as our business grows and we face different technical challenges, but always with a focus on practicality and performance. You'll help to maintain this infrastructure by working on existing configuration management code and troubleshooting the unexpected. You'll work on building its future state by participating in the architectural discussions, building proof of concept systems, writing new configuration management code, and standing up new production systems.
Our infrastructure is a hybrid of self-hosted hardware at multiple colocation facilities and cloud-managed services. We are currently heavily invested in Chef and Terraform as our management tools of choice but are also consistently evaluating new technology.
The markets are open 24 hours a day, 5 days a week and our customers are trading throughout. We engineer for durability, but if you're looking at this job posting you realize that occasional outages do occur. The infrastructure and development teams work together to troubleshoot these issues and as such, there is a very occasional off-hours component to this job.
