Systems Reliability Engineer

Virtual/Remote, US Full-time Allows remote

Seeq makes data analytics software for a big market that’s often overlooked by tech companies: industrial process data. Think pharmaceutical manufacturers, wind farms, and energy companies with tons of equipment and sensors. Our software engineers tackle hard problems in streaming calculation, storage and distributed computing, and we create elegant HTML5 data visualizations with smooth interactivity.

Our company is 100% remote and proud of it. We use a variety of collaboration tools, like Zoom and Slack, which makes us feel like we’re in the same building together. We have a stacked team of kind-hearted, talented engineers that love to collaborate, teach each other new tricks, and build products that far exceed our customers’ expectations.

Our technology stack is largely Java / JVM languages on the backend and TypeScript / Angular on the frontend. The core of our product is a full-featured calculation engine that can perform complex math and execute machine learning algorithms on streaming time series data.

SKILLS & REQUIREMENTS

As a Systems Reliability Engineer (SRE) you’ll join our growing team to help us tackle the difficult problems of deploying our application efficiently, connecting to datasources reliably, monitoring and diagnosing trouble areas, and improving the product so that all these things are done faster and easier. We have a cloud product but most of our customers install our software on-premise, which means we develop a lot of features and tools to help customer IT departments support our application. This position will, at least initially, involve a significant amount of customer support, including interacting with customers directly to troubleshoot technical issues with our software.

You have many (or even all!) of the following qualities:

You are motivated by solving customer problems. You tenaciously dig in to find the real root cause. You are responsive, and you don’t mind working off-hours sometimes.

You like both Linux and Windows. (90% of our customers use Windows Server.)

You can write Python, bash, and batch scripts to get hard jobs done fast and you know how to turn that knowledge into product improvements so that the scripts aren’t needed.

You are constantly finding ways to perfect your craft, be a better teammate, and come up with cool stuff. You may or may not be Batman and/or Catwoman.

You’re disciplined with a high attention to detail. You evangelize scalability, security, reliability, and elegant solutions.

You learn things quickly. You’re usually the one suggesting new technologies and raising the bar for the whole team. You listen really well, and you know how to make your ideas be heard without turning people off.

You are fluent in networking technologies such as TCP/IP, HTTP(S), and Ethernet, and you’re not afraid to dive into a deep investigation with tools like Wireshark, tcpdump, TCPView, Process Explorer and the rest of the Sysinternals Windows power tools.

You’ve got a Bachelor’s, Master’s or PhD in Computer Science or Engineering.

You are up for traveling periodically to hang out with your colleagues and get some face-to-face time.

You know how to balance life & work, and you don’t want a job that forces you to choose between them.

You want to work with a bunch of really smart people that love working together. And you want to work for a startup with good investors and a bright future.
