Systems Engineer (SRE), Production Engineering Quantcast
The production engineering team at Quantcast consists of three specific groups that make up data centers, infrastructure software, and application (or ?product?) operations. The teams work cross-functionally where possible to promote knowledge sharing and the elimination of any single point of failure.
These engineers (commonly referred to in industry as Site Reliability Engineers) truly are versatile, possessing a ?triple threat? toolbox consisting of expertise in software develompent, Linux systems/administration, and networking. Each person is unique in their personal and technical strengths and will likely bring valuable depth in one or two of these areas in particular.
A candidate for this group will be excited by the opportunity to join an elite team of systems and software engineers that are tasked with not only keeping up with our current scaling demands, but also laying the groundwork of various tools, automation, and processes from scratch along the way. We operate at a very large scale (think 20 petabytes of data processed and tens of billions of requests handled per day) but are in rapid growth mode and really just getting started. As the experts of our production systems and applications, this team provides guidance to all other software develompent teams within Quantcast for fault-tolerance, performance, and scalability.
We offer you a unique blend of experience: to work in our current truly large-scale environment, but also one that requires developing many new systems to take our products and platforms from medium-size to very large.
