Role Description

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

We're looking for a DevOps engineer to help us grow and improve automation, site reliability, and enable our engineering team to use new technologies in a scalable, reliable, and highly available way. Braze operates at massive scale, collecting hundreds of billions of data points each month and sending hundreds of millions of messages to end-users daily. We use a diverse technology stack rooted in Ruby on Rails, MongoDB, Redis, and Hadoop, but we are adding new technologies and paradigms such as Kafka and distributed stream processing. We have infrastructure in a half dozen different data centers all managed by Chef, and a lot of caffeine.

Company Culture

No idea goes unheard, and you’ll never be kept in the dark about major decisions. We may be rapidly growing, but as we expand, we make it a point to continue acknowledging each individual who contributes to our success and who makes Braze, Braze.
