Ahrefs is looking for a Site Reliability Engineer with deep knowledge of Linux and distributed systems to help take care of its distributed crawler and ensure all systems are up and running 24/7. Working experience with bare-metal servers and ability to participate in daily on-call rotation are required.
Our system is big part custom OCaml code and also employs third-party technologies – Debian, ELK, Puppet, and anything else that will solve the task at hand. In this role, be prepared to deal with 250 petabytes of storage (across several clusters), 3,000 bare-metal servers, experimental large-scale deployments and all kinds of software bugs and hardware deviations on a daily basis.
If you possess a healthy desire to automate everything while being able to quickly resolve urgent issues manually, then we want you! We strive to keep humans away from doing repetitive jobs that can be done by computers and focus instead on foreseeing problems and defining programmatic means to handle them.
Ahrefs does not engage with agencies or third party recruitment solutions for the roles we hire for. If at any point we need help, we’ll let you know!
