We are working with a comnay who are building the next way of seeing sports. They deliver unique and innovative solutions through unparalleled capabilities in machine understanding of sports.

They are the official tracking and analytics provider of the English Premier League, NBA, and MLS and have numerous clients across multiple sports at the team, league, and media levels.

They have developed a real-time video augmentation pipeline that powers the innovative content featured in products like the award-winning Clippers CourtVision, and has also been used by ESPN, Turner Sports, BT Sport, FOX, and International NBA League Pass.

They are constantly innovating. We believe that technology will revolutionize the way that sports are played, coached, and experienced, and that the work to make this happen has just begun.

The client is seeking a Senior Site Reliability Engineer to be a member of the Infrastructure Engineering group. They are driven by live events and it is common for resource usage to burst 100x. They have been using now industry-standard technologies, like Kubernetes and Terraform, for almost half a decade.

What You'll Do:

  • First and foremost, build and scale the deployment architecture that powers Second Spectrum's products as we continue to grow
  • Architect and implement cloud native solutions to our scaling problems with infrastructure as code tooling.
  • Empower engineers to build, test, deploy, and monitor services by themselves by building easy to use self-serve tooling
  • Design and implement robust telemetry for all of the services they operate.
  • Mentor and collaborate with engineers on other teams to promote healthy devops practices.
  • Participate in an on-call rotation that emphasizes eliminating repeating escalations.

What You Have:

  • 4+ years combined experience in SRE or full-stack software engineering roles
  • Experience using container technologies to test locally and deploy into production environments
  • Strong fundamentals in bash and other scripting languages. Experience supporting and debugging issues with compiled languages such as Rust, Golang or C++
  • Ability to articulate and make decisions about trade-offs between rapid iteration and high-quality products
  • Dislike solving the same problems again and again - so you automate or eliminate them
  • Like to collaborate with others to solve problems, share knowledge, and provide feedback
  • Strong communication skills when discussing technical concepts with technical and non-technical colleagues

Our clients tech stack:

  • AWS (EC2, EKS, RDS, S3, among others)
  • Terraform, Jsonnet, Typescript
  • Postgresql, RabbitMQ, Pulsar, Redis
  • Docker and container scheduling (Kubernetes)
  • Prometheus, Grafana, Loki

This is a remote role and the company will provide any equipment needed to be successful in the position
