Company: PostHog
Location: San Francisco
Posted on: April 11, 2021

Job Description:

Posthog is here to increase the number of successful products that exist in the world. Right now we are focusing on helping product creators understand how people are using their product. Where things go well. Where things don't go so well.

We have built a great service for understanding how users use products. Now we need to scale it and make sure it is rock solid.

If you are interested in software infrastructure on Kubernetes, excited to work with an experienced software development team, this job is for you.

  • Building AWS, GCP, Azure (and more!) deployment automation for delivering Posthog to ourselves and customers
  • Troubleshooting networking, compute, and Kubernetes failures.
  • Improving performance and robustness of cloud and customer deployments.
  • Hardening security all around.

      • We will send you a 30 minute SRE quiz
      • Technical interview with the hiring team. This is usually 2 PostHog team members spending 45-60 minutes in conversation
      • The final stage is a mix of panel interviews (coding skills and infrastructure), as well as meeting the team

        Benefits

        What we offer in return
        • Generous, transparent compensation and employee-friendly equity in PostHog
        • Unlimited time off with a 25 day minimum
