What we’re building and why we’re building it.

Fetch is a build-first technology company creating a rewards program to power the world. Over the last 5 years, we’ve grown from 0 to 18M active users and taken over the rewards game in the US with our free app. The foundation has been laid. In the next 5 years, we will become a global platform that will completely transform how people connect with brands. 

It all comes down to two core beliefs. First, that people deserve to be rewarded when they create value. If a third party directly benefits from an action you take or data you provide, you should be rewarded for it. And not just the “you get to use our product!” cop-out. We’re talkin’ real, explicit value. Fetch points, perhaps. 

Second, we also believe brands need a better and more direct connection with what matters most to them: their customers. Brands need to understand what people are doing, and have a direct line to be able to do something about it. Not just advertise, but ACT. Sounds nice right? 

That’s why we’re building the world’s rewards platform. A closed-loop, standardized rewards layer across all consumer behavior that will lead to happier shoppers and stronger brands.

Fetch Rewards is an equal employment opportunity employer.

The Role:

Fetch’s next step in evolving the shopping experience will require a Site Reliability Engineer.

The Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team combines software and systems engineering to build and run distributed, fault-tolerant systems at scale. SREs ensure that Fetch’s services — both our externally visible and internally critical systems — have reliability and uptime appropriate to our users’ needs. In addition, we keep an ever watchful eye on system capacity and performance. We’re proud to be our engineers’ engineers, and much of our software development focuses on optimizing existing systems, building infrastructure, and eliminating work through automation.

Fetch’s culture of diversity, intellectual curiosity, problem solving, and openness is key to our success. Our organization brings together people with a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. We encourage them to collaborate, think big, and take risks in a blame-free environment. We promote self-direction to work on meaningful projects, while we also strive to create an environment that provides the support and mentorship needed to learn and grow.

Responsibilities

  • Engage in and improve the whole lifecycle of services - from inception and design, through deployment, operation, and refinement.
  • Support services before they go live through activities such as system design consulting, developing software platforms and frameworks, capacity planning, and readiness reviews.
  • Maintain services once they are live by measuring and monitoring availability, latency, and overall system health.
  • Scale systems sustainably through mechanisms like automation, and evolve systems by pushing for changes that improve reliability and velocity.
  • Practice sustainable incident response and blameless postmortems by participating in the on-call rotation.

Minimum Qualifications

  • Experience with one or more high-level programming languages (e.g. Java, Python, Go, C/C++).
  • Experience with Unix/Linux operating system internals, networking, or cloud platforms (e.g. AWS, Azure, GCP).
  • Experience with analyzing and troubleshooting systems.
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, related technical field, or equivalent practical experience.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience designing, analyzing, and troubleshooting distributed systems.
  • Experience designing and developing software oriented towards systems or infrastructure automation.
  • Ability to debug/optimize code and automate routine tasks.
  • Systematic problem-solving approach, coupled with effective communication skills and a sense of ownership and drive.
