Why we need you

We apply principles of computer science and engineering to the design and development of computing systems: generally, large distributed ones. And as Ben Treynor Sloss claims, originator of the SRE term, reliability is the most fundamental feature of any product: a system isn’t very useful if nobody can use it. SREs are an essential part of our rockstar engineering team and we welcome you to the team if you have passion and value for thoroughness and dedication, belief in the value of preparation and documentation, and an awareness of what could go wrong, coupled with a strong desire to prevent it. In addition, you will be tasked with the following:

  • Design and build reliable, distributed, and scalable production systems
  • Advocate automation by removing operation load with software
  • Write software in parallel to our product counterparts by adding features and/or building new products
  • Build and support software needed for backup or load balancing, in such a way that they can be reused across systems
  • Figure out how to apply existing solutions to new problems
  • Find ways to improve design and operations of existing systems, to make them more scalable, more reliable, and more efficient, but only up to a point where they are reliable enough.
  • Focus on operating all-things services built atop our distributed computing systems, from internal infrastructure, to external services, to our developer community products

Key qualifications

  • 3+ years as an SRE, DevOps, or infrastructure-focused role
  • Knowledge and experience with Kubernetes (including service mesh / istio), grpc, Docker, and languages such as GO, Python, and/or JavaScript
  • Knowledge of service discovery, deployments, monitoring, scheduling and load balancing
  • Deep understanding of systems programming (network stack, file system, OS services) and networking (L2 vs. L3, network architecture, VLANs, etc.)
  • Knowledge of standard methodologies related to security, performance, and disaster recovery
  • Highly skilled in identifying performance bottlenecks, identifying anomalous system behavior, and resolving root cause of service issues
  • Demonstrated skills to effectively work across teams and functions to influence design, operations, and deployment of highly available software

Preferred skills

  • Experience with running multi-cluster Kubernetes environments and strong understanding of multi-tenancy and security implications
  • Experience with large scale distributed cloud service development, infrastructure, traffic management and architecture, GCP preferred
  • Experience with digital identity platforms and the world of IAM

We’re a bunch of unique, normal and somewhat eccentric people (just the average amount), looking for some more team members. “No one is you, and that is your power,” we’re looking for people who bring their best, see the best in others and like to make things better.

If there's one thing we’re good at, it's gathering people together to do something fun. Launching a new band, or a technology start-up shooting for the stars, is all about having the best people – get that right, cool things will happen.

Who we are 

IndyKite is building the identity layer for Web 3.0, with solutions that manage human, IoT, and machine identity, offering more secure, more private and frictionless controls. 

Based on open source standards, our identity platform leverages machine learning to deliver context-aware authorization, built for scale on a knowledge graph data model. The platform allows developers to map every person, device, and asset across an organization or network and provide personalization and authorization services, with flexible APIs and a growing open-source ecosystem. And that’s just the start. 

Cool things like completely changing the way identity is managed online, putting power back in the hands of the people and giving them control over their own identity. Making authentication more secure, more private and better for both enterprise and the individual. We want to change things for the better and offer solutions for the next wave of the internet - web 3.0

Our 5 step business plan is simple:

  1. Love your customer
  2. Build Trust
  3. Stay focussed 
  4. Have fun
  5. Kick ass
