Our software engineers work on a variety of projects ranging from innovations in healthcare systems to taming the chaos of biology. We’re constantly improving our tools and technologies to deliver the highest quality actionable information for the patient.

Our Data Infrastructure Team manages the underlying infrastructure upon which we build our data ingestion pipelines and data platform architecture to support business, data science, and engineering stakeholders across Invitae. This is a hands-on role.

What you will do:

  • Support a rapidly growing team of engineers by automating operational tasks, allowing more creating and less debugging

  • Take ownership of our architecture, manage our infrastructure with Terraform, and strive every day to make it better (more reliable, scalable, etc.)
  • Manage and continuously improve our build and data pipeline system, including Kubernetes, Kafka, Spark, Snowflake, and CI/CD Pipelines
  • Improve our data platform's observability utilizing custom metrics and/or integrations (e.g. Prometheus, Grafana)
  • Understand and contribute to our complex data ecosystem, promote solutions to other teams, and communicate any impactful changes to stakeholders

We look for engineers who:

  • Are self-starters and can work towards a larger goal with minimal guidance
  • Have strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Have an extensive understanding of AWS applications and principles
  • Have architected distributed systems with infrastructure automation, monitoring, logging, and alerting
  • Have a proven track record of improving systems in secure, reliable, and reproducible ways
  • Have mastery of at least one coding language (e.g. Python, Scala, Golang)
  • Are curious about how things work at a fundamental level and strive to automate themselves out of a job
  • Are lifelong learners, always pushing themselves, their teammates, and their systems to be the best they can be.

Nice to Haves:

  • Proven experience deploying and managing complex Kubernetes clusters
  • Experience with other CNCF projects like Flux, Helm, Prometheus, etc.
  • Strong SQL experience
  • Experience with Linux systems (e.g. Ubuntu, Amazon Linux) and Bash
  • Experience with CI/CD pipelines (e.g. Jenkins, GitHub Actions)
  • BONUS: Prior experience utilizing data warehousing or building out data warehouses
  • BONUS: Hands-on experience working with large datasets, pipelines, and their supporting infrastructure

An Insider's view of Invitae

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Collaborative - when I walk through the Invitae office at any time of day, I can see cross-functional collaboration in action. Our team members are constantly connecting in structured and unstructured meetings to solve problems and achieve goals.


Corporate Recruiter

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaboration between functional groups is key to the Logistics team's success at Invitae. Working closely with Sales, Manufacturing, Assay Development, Customer Support, Finance and QA allows us to provide better customer service by improving our processes, troubleshoot, brainstorm new ideas, learn from each other and share our best "dad" jokes.


Logistics Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Creativity requires a break from the routine and the screen. Here at Archer the team gets creative through walks to the food trucks, lunch runs, climbing gym sessions or a few end of the week craft brews. Some of our best algorithms were developed or refined on the climbing gym mat.
