Crunchbase - Platform Engineer

Platform Engineer

Crunchbase San Francisco, CA, USA

Our Mission It’s nearly impossible to find an authoritative source of truth about companies that is both always up-to-date and freely available. Our mission is to continue building the largest high-quality, live, openly editable and accessible dataset of company and people information in the world -- and to build a delightful product with slick, easy-to-use APIs around that dataset. We love building enjoyable user experiences, complex data schemata, APIs, and scalable systems that support tens of millions of interactions per day. Our team is a group of highly skilled engineers working on formidable problems throughout the stack. How We Operate We have a flexible model for team organization at Crunchbase, centered around the principles of agile software development, allowing us to fluidly adapt to new requirements and situations as they arise. We tend towards two main types of teams: • Feature-oriented teams: operate independently and own their projects from cradle to grave, building everything they need to execute. While they don't necessarily have to do all the work themselves, it's their responsibility to make sure the business needs are met all the way into production. • Function-oriented teams: provide support to feature teams and have deeper expertise on particular parts of the stack. It's their responsibility to build platforms that are so good the other teams want to use them, rather than being forced into it. We also ship code as early as we possibly can; getting betas into customer hands is a top priority. Our goal is to tune our process to customer needs as efficiently and quickly as possible. Crunchbase is built with a variety of tools - a core part of our engineering philosophy is to use the right tool for the job: • Ruby, Scala, Java • Node.js, Angular.js, Typescript • Redis, PostgreSQL, ElasticSearch • Git, Nginx, Docker, NewRelic, Jenkins • AWS - EC2, ELB, VPC, S3, R53, RDS, SQS, etc. Platform Engineering at Crunchbase Our primary product is our dataset, but building out a great API, a solid user experience, and a ton of mechanisms for accessing that data requires building many pieces of associated tooling, documentation, and libraries. The responsibilities of platform engineers at Crunchbase include: • Architect systems capable of serving as the brains of complex distributed products. • Think in microservices and APIs - develop and expand our ecosystem of composable, reusable, isolated, single purpose services. • Create highly testable and rock-solid service implementations. • Make important engineering decisions that balance numerous non-engineering factors with technical considerations. • Continuously measure and optimize the performance, effectiveness, and uptime of backend services -- participate in a data driven culture. • Research, prototype, and implement solutions to thorny big data and scale problems using the best available tools. • Thrive in a rapidly changing environment, continuously working to adapt our process to new circumstances. Qualifications: • Solid understanding of computer science and software engineering fundamentals. • Motivated to participate in ongoing learning and growth through pair programming, code reviews, application of new technologies and best practices. • Excellent verbal and written communication skills. • Familiarity with tools we presently use is a plus, but not required -- if you know something better, we may use that instead! What Crunchbase offers: • Competitive salary and equity • A team of creative, transparent entrepreneurs driven to accomplish our mission • Daily catered lunches • Fitness reimbursement (to work off the catered lunches) • Unlimited Paid Time Off (PTO) -- we don't track vacation days • Incredible medical, vision, and dental benefits for employees and their families • 401(k) and Roth plans, and free annual financial adviser check-in • Free One Medical Group membership for employees and their families • Commuting stipend • Free Lyft and Uber rides anywhere in the Bay Area after late nights at the office • Prime location in the Financial District of SF, near Bart Muni stops • Company and team offsites, retreats, events, and happy hours Every day our team is honored to work with entrepreneurs and innovators from every corner of the globe, and we aim to build a team that reflects the diversity of our customers. Each individual at Crunchbase brings their own perspectives, work experiences, lifestyles, and cultures with them, and we believe that a more diverse team creates more innovative products, provides a better service to its customers, and helps us all grow and learn as individuals.
