Job Description

About the team:

You'll be working on the Afterpay Developer Infrastructure team!
As a Developer Infrastructure engineer, you’ll help our engineering organization scale by seeking to eliminate toil, build automation, and make our customers - other Afterpay engineers - effective. If you value empathy, execution-focus and communication, you will thrive here.

Developer Infrastructure broadly supports containers, orchestration, infrastructure automation, CI/CD, and observability. We implement modern tooling, including Docker, Terraform, Kubernetes, Python, Buildkite, and the JVM - including Kotlin and Java.

Technologies you'll be exposed to:

  • Public cloud platforms (AWS, Heroku, GCP, Azure)

  • Infrastructure-as-Code (Terraform, CloudFormation, Gruntworks)

  • Container Orchestration (Kubernetes, ECS Fargate, Docker, CoreOS)

  • Scripting/Infra automation languages (Python, Ruby, Bash, Rust, Go…)

  • Continuous Integration Deployment & Delivery (CI/CD)

  • Observability (M3, Wavefront, Prometheus, SignalFX, SumoLogic, New Relic...)


What you'll bring:

  • 0-2 years of professional software engineering experience (self-taught engineers and bootcamp/coding school grads are welcome… no 4-year computer science degree required!)

  • Proficiency in a language we use - Python, Ruby, Go, Java

  • Experience leading a coding project(s) involving other engineers, including work that you may have done during a bootcamp experience or on your own

  • Desire to learn, whether from your peers and mentors, or from independent research

  • Appreciation for details and helping teams collaborate more effectively and efficiently (including your own)

  • Kindness, maturity, and empathy for your customers and colleagues
