If your idea of fun is ingesting terabytes and terabytes of data 24 hours a day, then we've got the job for you. Papertrail is looking for a lead SRE to help build, improve, and manage our high performance stream processing pipeline. This is truly one of those jobs where you and your developers/ops friends can use the tool you operate every single day.
The Papertrail stack is largely Ruby, Java, Scala, and MySQL. Lots and lots of MySQL. This is your opportunity to come in and lead a small SRE team at a company that is growing every month. Plus, with the backing of Solarwinds behind it, there are no worries about running out of VC funding, or where the next round is coming from. We're a small distributed team where everyone writes code, operating an existing successful business and we're looking for the next piece of the puzzle to collaborate in taking our SRE practices to the next level.
If this sounds interesting to you, we'd love to open up a conversation about whether we're a good match, setup some interviews and a coding test. You can find the contact info above.
