You: An enthusiastic engineer who loves building scalable infrastructures and solving software deployment challenges. You sleep better at night knowing the developers on your team have stable, efficient environments to write code in. You’re probably a developer yourself, sometimes contributing to core code through patches and pull requests.
Us: We’re a Tokyo-based Internet startup helping large and small online services Go Global through our API and unique human translation platform. We love working with internationally-minded people, and most of our team have lived in another country before. A few even speak more than 3 languages. Perhaps because of all these languages we speak - and code in! - we’re a tight-knit team that works hard, and has fun.
Together: We will build an infrastructure capable of handling millions of translation jobs, worked on by tens of thousands of qualified translators. We will tackle the challenges of building and maintaining multiple services. If you love playing with Amazon’s AWS, understand the challenges behind release-engineering, and get a kick out of analyzing log data for performance bottlenecks, all with the goal of making customers happier and translators more efficient, then we’re going to have fun!
You will be the glue that ties an exciting platform together. And you will work with a team focused on working efficiently, together. You should have a firm grasp of networking tools and technologies, and an ability to run multiple cloud deployments - including production, staging, and sandboxes. You hate it when anything goes down, but realize nothing is perfect and understand that communicating the status of a situation will earn you respect.
If this sounds like fun, we'd love to talk. This is an opportunity to work with some of the brightest engineers in Tokyo disrupting an industry that's ripe for innovation. We've got several projects in the pipeline just waiting for someone to run with!
