Cloud Engineer in Boston, MA

Posted 2019-11-03

Our Staff Engineer – demonstrate, breadth and depth in experience – recently maturing our
roles internally
 Complete – all around engineers in all aspects with a spike, no small n’s, expecting to write code
and design queries on a daily basis
 L4 IC – lead projects beyond one team – building capabilities across teams, easier to launch
multiple initiatives, projects, overhauls OR specialized enough to fill a gap on a team; i.e.
“containerization” specifically – exploring more and more as a company expanding from our
monolithic code base into a loose coupling architecture with multiple facets.
 Our intent right now is cloud enablement and it is part of our long-term goals to be cloud ready
for new applications (6-12 months) and moving our app beyond just the Boston data center
(currently Boston/Seattle) and into Google Cloud
 Remember that microservices can go without Event Driven Architecture (EDA), but EDA cannot
go w/o microservices
 Be cautious of anyone who is too AWS focused or only wants to focus on one tech; not a
Wayfair culture fit, but we will also never go to AWS
 Container techs used: Docker, Kubernates, Kafka, RabbitMQ plus dev in PHP
