Senior DevOps Engineer, EMEA

The Engineers at Chainalysis are driven by working on new technical challenges every day
Relentless problem-solvers and big dreamers, we’re creating the building blocks for future blockchain technologies

The DevOps Engineer is the mastermind behind all the processes and tools that enable us to ship better, faster, and more reliably
They champion infrastructure best-practices and influence team goals and product roadmaps, all while optimizing our infrastructure and development workflows
We measure success by how well you’ve enabled the team to safely operate with little to no intervention
 

In one year you’ll know you were successful if…

  • Ensure observability and business continuity of our systems
  • Contribute to our cloud architecture 
  • You’ve reduced the friction in an engineer’s day to day workflow 
  • Hardened production systems (maintained uptime targets, graceful degradation, self-healing and automated recovery) 
  • Worked closely with Information Security to improve the systems used to test releases for security issues 
  • Established objective measures of done and documented assumptions

A background like this helps: 

  • Experience in one or more of the following: Java, Scala, Golang, Python, or shell scripting
  • Prior success implementing infrastructure as code including pipelines as code (Terraform, Helm, Ansible, Jenkins), and containerization technologies (Docker, Kubernetes) 
  • Experience monitoring production systems (DataDog, Prometheus)
  • Experience with cloud architecture (AWS, GCP)
  • Experience with streaming pipelines (Kafka, Spark)
  • Blockchain P2P Node and Networking Fundamentals
  • Experience with tuning RDBMSs (ideally PostgreSQL)

A general understanding of popular Blockchain technologies would differentiate you:

  • Bitcoin and/or other UTXO based Protocols (Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, ZCash, Dash)
  • Ethereum and/or other Account based Protocols (EOS, Stellar, Cardano, Tron)
