Role Description

Implementing computer vision technology into a product is hard. It’s a manual, tedious and expensive process that requires an army of PhDs, it’s very expensive at scale, hard to productize and demands to build complex infrastructure and data pipelines.

XIX builds a platform that helps developers accomplish any computer vision task with just a few lines of code, with no specific computer vision knowledge required. It removes the complexity from the process of integrating with a product, provides 44x cost improvements compared to conventional means and enables all developers to use CV technology, not just ML researchers and engineers.

Proudly backed by Y Combinator, Cabra.vc and Two Bear Capital, we help small startups, large companies and nonprofits build new products and even save lives. And we need your help.

The Mission of the Role

To own provisioning, deployment and monitoring to make our users successful

XIX's infrastructure handles millions of requests per month for a very diverse set of users, from small startups to large enterprises, hence it is of utmost importance for us to maintain the robust API. As an Infrastructure Engineer, you will build and scale the foundations for production engineering, developer operations, and deployments. You will also work hand-in-hand with the product teams to help ship features. You will be responsible for keeping production infrastructure reliable and scalable since it serves as the bedrock for products serving millions of users.

What you will be working on?

  • Write high-quality code that automates the provisioning, deployment, scaling, and monitoring of XIX's infrastructure and ensure it's redundant and fast
  • Debug production issues across the stack
  • Build frameworks and processes for iterating and launching products into production quickly

What skills and experience do you need?

  • 3+ years of industry experience building scalable high-performance infrastructure solutions
  • Strong background in systems is required: their edge cases, lifecycles and failure modes
  • Experience with Kubernetes, Terraform, and Ansible
  • Capable of writing high-quality code

Company Culture

There are several key attributes that stand out within XIX:

  1. We hire for culture first
  2. We gravitate towards hard problems and optimizing for doing the right thing vs cutting corners. We tend to sacrifice short term gain for long term impact. We love working with long-term people.
  3. Every team member can be characterized by having three traits:
    • Courage. More often than not we take on a challenge that is bigger than any individual person.
    • Curiosity. Drawing inspiration from other areas by learning new skills. Roman, CTO, just recently learned how to pick the locks, for example :)
    • Being humble.
  4. We have the company's mission, as well as, the mission for our team. We are optimizing for building the credential organization, so that when a team member leaves, the line on their CV with the work at XIX provides 10-20% premium on top of market salary.
