Network Engineer

Location: Remote

Job Type: Full Time / Permanent

We’re building a fast-paced team with an emphasis on iterative development and constant collaboration. We believe pair programming makes us stronger, faster, and smarter. We practice and teach an approach to software engineering that applies across industries and organizations, so you’ll experience all types of teams, products, and technologies. And we believe that working fast doesn’t mean working overtime– taking time to relax, recharge and refocus keeps our pace sustainable.

We Court Perfection: Means you get better at what you already do well. We set up regular retrospectives to figure out what we’re doing wrong so we can fix it, and what we’re doing right so we can improve on it. We consistently practice Test Driven Development, which results in high-quality, reliable and more maintainable code. And we believe that methodical, steady, relentless forward momentum drives consistent results.

What we are: A Network Engineer is an engineer who inherently has a deep knowledge of our network systems, hardware, and related management platforms. We apply software engineering principles to common infrastructure systems with the goal of making these systems as robust and as easy to use as possible for our development teams. Whether it’s building and managing complex WANs, LANs, APIs, infrastructure-as-code, network services, or developer tools, we build platforms that enable our development teams to move fast and deliver business value. We crush our work as a team with product managers, designers, and fellow engineers while grounding ourselves with data and feedback. We relentlessly code, test, deploy, operate, and improve our platforms until they achieve our desired outcomes and are a pleasure to use.
