Senior Platform Engineer
At DataRobot we’ve developed a powerful machine learning application, underpinned by a flexible platform that runs in many environments, from customer hardware to the cloud. We are seeking talented engineers with a strong background in Linux, programming, and distributed computing to build core services and components that make up the DataRobot stack and deliver them to the most challenging customer environments.
The Platform Engineering team has built a framework which makes it possible to add any service to the DataRobot application, build it, test it, configure it, and ship it to our cloud environment and our on-premise customers. We manage the entire dependency stack, optimizing our product for security, reliability, and performance, as well as extreme portability. We make it possible for DataRobot to run anywhere from single VM's in the cloud to large, high-performance computing clusters, conforming to stringent security protocols for sensitive data.
In particular you will:
- Build and improve the DataRobot installation framework.
- Automate the creation of infrastructure for our development, test, and production environments.
- Integrate new services and architectural components into the DataRobot application stack.
- Improve core systems and services related to logging, monitoring, security, and administration.
We’re a fast-paced team with a commitment to quality software. You need to be willing to learn whatever it takes to get the job done, from diving into Linux internals, to programming your own services and libraries in Python, to orchestrating Hadoop environments in the cloud with tools like Terraform and Ansible.
