Hello, We’re Built In

Built In unites companies and people around their shared passion for tech and the universal need for purpose. To help our partners attract qualified talent, we create content that tells their story in a way no job post ever could — and we put their jobs in front of people who were born to do them. Our audience of sought-after candidates use Built In to find their professional purpose and connect meaningfully to the tech community, including by reading our content, networking at our events and applying to jobs at companies they believe in.

Headquartered in Chicago, we also serve Los Angeles, Colorado, Austin, New York, Boston, Seattle, San Francisco, and Nationwide.

When you work for Built In, you have the opportunity to change lives by giving talented people access to purpose, not just a paycheck. And you’ll make an impact on some of the most exciting companies in tech, helping them hire their next wave of elite talent. Be part of Built In, and be part of the future of tech.   

We're looking for a Lead Site Reliability Engineer (Chicago HQ or Remote)

We are a dynamic team of engineers that iterate on ideas and products for a growing company that is dedicated to building meaningful tech communities. Here, we can provide interesting challenges and puzzles to solve as our technical stack rapidly evolves. You will be able to work with new technologies and architectures in a forward-thinking organization that looks to push boundaries.

As a LSite Reliability Engineer, you will concentrate on our infrastructure and core services. We want to deliver a stable and responsive experience to our users and customers, and value maintainable and practical construction over band-aids and hacks.

Your job
  • You will work in several technologies:
    • Platforms such as Unix (Linux/MacOS), Terraform, Vault, Docker, Bash, Varnish, Airflow, Memcached, MySQL, ElasticSearch, and Snowflake
    • Languages such as Go, Python, PHP, and Node.js
    • Including HTTP-based, RESTful APIs
  • You will work in a cloud environment (AWS), using various technologies including ECS, DynamoDB, Kinesis, and SQS.
  • You will have a clearly-defined path for growth based around a career framework.
What you need
  • You love working with systems: understanding them, building them, and keeping them healthy.
  • You have a strong background with Unix environments, which can include Linux, BSD, and MacOS (terminal).
  • You have worked with Docker and with some kind of orchestration framework--examples of which include Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Kubernetes.
  • You have programmed with modern backend languages. A list of those includes Go, Rust, and Python.
  • You will have at least 4+ years of experience in an infrastructure role. This could include Site Reliability, but can also include DevOps or Infrastructure.
  • You have worked in a cloud computing environment. This can include Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, and Azure.
  • You love solving puzzles. Maybe that's writing code on personal projects; maybe that's doing thousand-piece jigsaw puzzles; maybe that's Rubik's cubes. You strive to understand how things are put together and why they aren't working.
  • You want to be a part of a team that succeeds as a unit, and you want mentorship from other engineers as much as you want to mentor those engineers yourself.
  • You understand that communication and transparency is vital to being part of any functional team.
We’d love to have you aboard

The team members we’re looking to hire will work out of our office at 203 N LaSalle located in the beautiful city of Chicago. We offer health, dental, and vision insurance benefits, commuter benefits, 401(k) match, casual dress, catered lunch (Monday - Thursday) and cold brew coffee on tap.

An Insider's view of Built In

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Good vibes are a top priority around here. You'll hear music played from our playlist that the entire company co-builds, you'll see a movie streaming on TV and, if you catch us at lunch, you'll see the entire office sitting at our communal table. We work hard every day but we always make time to spend together.

Adam

Product + Growth

What does your typical day look like?

I am excited to work each day with a cross-functional team of intelligent, curious, driven and hilarious group of people. We’re working hard — and growing quickly — but we have a lot of laughs together, and a lot of respect for one another. It’s motivating and empowering.

Sarah

Content Team

How does the company support your career growth?

Success means more here. It not only is being noticed by my team but it positively impacts Built In’s overall results. Our team is made of strong individuals working together to build our revolutionary platform.

Samantha

Sr. Account Executive

What are some things you learned at the company?

It’s pretty remarkable to experience an entire company operating as one team. At Built In, we tackle problems and achieve goals together, sharing in the responsibility of successes and downfalls alike.
