Parse.ly is a real-time content measurement layer for the entire web. Our analytics platform helps digital storytellers at some of the web's best sites, such as Arstechnica, The New Yorker, TechCrunch, The Intercept, Mashable, and many more. In total, our analytics system handles over 65 billion monthly events from over 1 billion monthly unique visitors.
We’re the kind of team that does “whatever it takes” to get a project done.
Our distributed team is best-in-class and we happily skip commutes by working out of our ergonomic home offices. Here's a photograph of mine running Parse.ly full-screen on two monitors.
**What's an Infrastructure Engineer? **
Working in concert with our Data Engineers and UX Engineers, as an Infrastructure Engineer you will take ownership of Parse.ly’s distributed cloud environment.
This environment involves 200+ servers running in 7 availability zones and 2 regions in Amazon Web Services.
We practice true DevOps -- infrastructure-as-code; reliance on automation/scripting; pervasive monitoring/alerting; and, careful distributed system design. In this role, you will code in Python, but be comfortable with scripting languages and orchestration tools. You will master AWS services, security practices, and APIs.
You will ensure that one of the most important real-time analytics systems in the world -- trusted daily by over 250 media companies, 2,000 website operators, and over 25,000 active dashboard user seats -- is leveraging the best high-availability and rapid-recovery techniques.Responsibilities
Parse.ly is a fully distributed team, with engineers working from across the world. People with past experience working remotely will be prioritized.
