ABOUT US

Simon Data was founded in 2015 by a team of successful serial entrepreneurs. We're a data-first marketing platform startup, and we approach our work seriously; we tackle problems in a scrappy and disruptive fashion, yet we build for scale to support our clients at big data volume.

Our culture is rooted in organizational transparency, empowering individuals, and an attitude of getting things done. If you want to be a valuable contributor on a team that cultivates these core values we would love to hear from you.

THE ROLE

Simon engineering was founded with a strong DevOps foundation and we have a world class team of ops-savvy engineers today. We’re looking to grow our DevOps expertise by hiring another Devops Engineer, who’ll help us build world class infrastructure tooling to assist our developers in building, deploying, and operating large scale systems at Simon.

Your typical day will consist of anything from writing code to improve the reliability of our systems to working on infrastructure tooling like Terraform and Ansible to maintain and scale various data clusters and event processing pipelines. We take ownership seriously at Simon and you’ll have the opportunity to propose, and lead, building and delivering world class services at Simon.

  • Shape the future of our cloud infrastructure, and deeply engage with our security team to help build security automation and tooling into our cloud architecture
  • Help with performance engineering across our stack, you’ll learn how to wield FlameGraphs and APM tracing to identify and improve performance hotspots
  • Take responsibility for maintaining Simon’s superior uptime and SLAs around availability, throughput, and low latency
  • Participate in our on-call rotation (all the other engineers participate too, there’s no “throwing responsibility over the wall” at Simon) and help us keep Simon operating

An Insider's view of Simon Data

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It’s an exciting time to be at Simon - we’re expanding rapidly and there’s a lot of opportunity for personal growth. I love that everyone here, from junior folks to the executive team, is super hands-on. We work hard and we’re scrappy, but we know how to have fun - my favorite Simon tradition is going to karaoke during our quarterly offsites.
