You are passionate about system reliability, performance, and security, with an eye toward taking our operations to the next level (from semi-automated to fully automated).
LaunchDarkly is a rapidly growing software company with a strong mission and vision carried out by a talented and diverse team of employees. Our goal is to help teams build better software, faster. You'll join a small team from companies like Atlassian, Intercom, and Twitter, and you'll have an immediate impact with our product and customers.

  • Practice sustainable incident response and blameless postmortems

  • You play well on a small, tight-knit team
  • You have run large-scale production systems on Linux servers in Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • You love automating deployment with configuration management tools such as Ansible, Chef, Puppet, Salt, or Terraform. When you want to automate other processes, you reach for Python or bash
  • You have configured and tuned Web proxy servers such as HAProxy, nginx, Apache httpd, or Varnish
  • You can't live without monitoring systems such as Sensu, Nagios, Graphite/Grafana, or Datadog

Preferred Qualifications:

  • You are familiar with running systems with a microservice-based architecture

About LaunchDarkly:

LaunchDarkly is a Feature Management Platform that serves over 20 Trillion feature flags daily to help software teams build better software, faster. Feature flagging is an industry standard methodology of wrapping a new or risky section of code or infrastructure change with a flag. Each flag can easily be turned off independent of code deployment (aka "dark launching"). LaunchDarkly has SDKs for all major web and mobile platforms. We are building a diverse team so that we can offer robust products and services. Our team culture is dynamic, friendly, and supportive. Our headquarters are in Oakland.

At LaunchDarkly, we believe in the power of teams. We're building a team that is humble, open, collaborative, respectful and kind. We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Don't let the confidence gap get in the way of applying! We'd love to hear from you.
