Senior DevOps Engineer, Platform Services

The engineering team at Chainalysis is inspired by solving the hardest technical challenges and creating products that build trust in cryptocurrencies
We’re a global organization with teams in the UK, Denmark, and the USA who thrive on the challenging work we do and doing it with other exceptionally talented teammates
Our industry changes every day and our job is to build a flexible platform that will allow us to adapt to those rapid changes
 

Senior DevOps Engineer, Platform-Services, will work within a highly skilled team that thrives on making the whole engineering team more effective
Responsible for the evolution of our multi-cloud infrastructure, they champion infrastructure best-practices and influence team goals and product roadmaps
Whether it’s tools to make operating code in production easier, managing foundational shared services or education on AWS, the team is guided by the question – how do we help our colleagues reduce cognitive load and get more done? They’ll work with our Developer-Productivity, Cost and Security Engineering teams to understand the goals of the larger organization and to make sure that projects are successful

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

  • Provided highly available and performant engineering platform services such Kubernetes, Kafka, Jenkins and Artifactory
      
  • Hardened production systems (maintained uptime targets, graceful degradation, self-healing and automated recovery) 
  • Worked closely with Developer-Productivity to enable R&D teams to self-serve engineering platform services
  • Brought innovative new ideas and contributed to the team roadmap
  • Worked with Information Security to improve the systems used to test releases for security issues 
  • Developed best practices around use of cloud technology (AWS)
  • Reduced the barrier for every engineer at Chainalysis to operate their code in production
  • Established objective measures of done and documented assumptions 
  • Helped to build and follow SLAs and SLOs for our engineering platform infrastructure
  • Enabled Chainalysis to continually increase compliance and security standards whilst minimizing the burden on engineering teams
  • Identified infrastructure cost saving opportunities by collaborating with our Cost Optimisation team

A background like this helps: 

  • A Deep understanding of AWS services and technologies such as IAM, S3,  EC2, EKS, RDS, MSK and Lambda
     
  • Experience running, maintaining and troubleshooting multi-tenant Kubernetes clusters in a production environment
  • Experience with streaming pipelines (Kafka, Spark)
  • Prior success implementing infrastructure as code including pipelines as code (Terraform, Helm, Ansible, Jenkins), and containerization technologies (Docker, Kubernetes) 
  • Experience in one or more of the following: Java, Scala, Golang, Python, or shell scripting
  • Experience monitoring production systems (DataDog, Prometheus, etc
    )
  • Experience with tuning RDBMSs (ideally PostgreSQL)
  • Experience operating in a standards compliant environment ( ISO-27001, NIST 800-171, SOC 2)
  • Have an interest in cryptocurrencies or a desire to learn – we can help!
