About Us

NS1’s mission is to unlock the potential of DNS to deliver the tech that powers our customers and the world. We are the market leader in DNS and traffic management software and services, and our customers include the biggest properties and largest enterprises on the internet, such as Salesforce, LinkedIn, Squarespace, Pandora, Imgur, Yelp, Dropbox, Riot Games, and many more. Our modern DNS technologies enable optimized application delivery, couple via our APIs into the tooling and processes of today’s DevOps organizations, and deliver reliability and performance at global scale. We operate a worldwide, highly tuned Managed DNS network, and also deliver our technologies to customers as single-tenant software deployments. We solve incredibly challenging problems on behalf of our customers, in the most mission critical parts of their stack.

The role 

We’re looking to add a new core member to our small but fast growing engineering team: an experienced DevOps engineer who can dive in to our extensively automated network of global infrastructure, summoning their deep technical background to drive new innovation in the tools and systems that run our cutting edge traffic management platform.

We’re looking for an autodidact who can immerse themselves in our globally distributed infrastructure immediately, leveraging existing technical strengths and teaching themselves the systems that are new to them. You should have broad knowledge of the technologies in modern infrastructure operations and automation, offering constructive advice for improvements, while being able to use and scale the systems in our existing platform. You’ll take responsibility for the quality of your code, and your daily work will have an immediate company-wide impact.

Some stuff you’ll work on:

  • Deployment automation

  • Monitoring, metrics collection and alerting

  • Continuous build and testing systems

  • Linux system maintenance and platform security

  • Traffic load balancing, filtering, and DDoS mitigation tools

  • Messaging, persistent DB and caching systems


We like to find the right tool for the job, and we’ll expect your sage advice to help make future decisions on which technologies should power our platform (and why they are best). Whatever the technology, we strive for provably maintainable, scalable, and secure systems.

We run a custom stack in a very distributed network with infrastructure in various environments around the globe. Some tools we’re currently using to tie it all together include:

  • Linux

  • Ansible, Docker

  • MongoDB, Redis, RabbitMQ

  • Python (Twisted), Bash, C

  • Hadoop/HDFS/OpenTSDB, Grafana, Bosun

  • BPF, iptables, packet analysis
