Senior Platform Services Engineer

| Colorado Springs
Who are we? 
Quantum Metric helps organizations build better digital products faster. Our platform for Continuous Product Design gives business and technical teams a single version of truth that’s fast, quantified, and grounded on what customers actually experience. The result: Teams agree on priorities, build products customers love, and innovate with speed and confidence.
What will you do? 
As a Platform Services Engineer, you will be creating and refining the services that drive both our infrastructure and end-user applications. We work with Go, TypeScript, Kubernetes, Kafka, MySQL/MariaDB, and Google Cloud Platform services, but we believe in using the right tool for the job. Our services ingest and expose mountains of experience and analytics data to Quantum Metric applications as quickly and efficiently as possible. You’ll own features and be an integral part of a DevOps culture where you’ll be responsible for building, deploying, and maintaining parts of the application.
Who are you? 
You love developing software and your passion for building with code is palpable. You love spending time creating high-throughput data capture/data processing systems. You are particularly fond of building and using distributed systems to solve problems at scale. You love building applications and tooling on top of Kubernetes, and you know what it takes to operate a reliable service using tools like Prometheus and Grafana.
While you’re a developer with a passion for writing good code, you also enjoy brainstorming sessions with your peers and product owners to discover the best solution to a problem. You see the importance of providing input and considering the points-of-view of those around you. At the end of the day, you enjoy being part of a healthy team culture that practices mutual respect.

Skills

  • You are skilled with Go or have experience in Python, C++, Java, or a similar language and are willing to learn quickly.
  • You subscribe to the DevOps mindset and are as comfortable scripting Linux systems with Bash as you are monitoring the key performance indicators of your service with our observability tools.
  • You have built large-scale applications on top of Kubernetes, maybe even K8s controllers and operators.
  • You also have familiarity with both SQL and NoSQL systems.
  • Proficiency with TypeScript or JavaScript is another plus, as much of our stack is Node.js powered.
  • You’re curious and self-motivated, so you’re probably really familiar with a variety of different tech. We understand the value of learning continuously and expanding out of your comfort zone.

Requirements

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Information Systems, Code School Certification or equivalent
  • Experience with Go, TypeScript/JavaScript, Kubernetes and MySQL/MariaDB
  • Experience automating workflows with various scripting languages

Bonus

  • Experience with Google Cloud, specifically GKE and BigQuery
  • Using technologies like Kafka or Google Cloud PubSub to build event-driven systems
  • Experience with Redis and NoSQL databases
  • Experience with Spark, Flink, Beam, or any other popular batch/streaming systems

Perks

  • This will be the best group that you ever work with. We support one another through challenges and win as a team. Your hard work will be well rewarded with stock options, a competitive salary and full benefits. Most importantly, you’ll be strapped to a technology rocket ship bound for greatness! Your success at Quantum Metric will be a milestone in your career.

What does career growth look like on your team?

For the Quality Assurance Analyst, the growth opportunity is off the charts! My goal is that individuals in this role spend around 80% doing their daily tasks and 20% doing dedicated learning towards a specific craft. This learning could be directed towards automation, front end or back end engineering, or dipping their toe into product management.

I integrate with the team regularly. People can reach out to me any time if they need me; they have my phone number. I care about our people and this company.
