We’re hiring a Site Reliability Engineer in Columbus, OH

We recently raised the largest VC round ever for an Ohio technology company:


Our team excels at delivering software to build Root’s products: presently, mobile apps and a backend platform for personal auto insurance. We’ve shaped our team and our way of working around this. Our engineering team would not be the most transformative team at building a mobile operating system. We’d be quite bad at that. We’re exceptionally good at building the type of software that is necessary to invoke change in the insurance industry.

About the position
We deploy our applications using Amazon Elastic Container Service running Docker containers. For our data analytics platforms, we use a combination of AWS Redshift, Hadoop, and GPU Linux servers. We’re looking for a site reliability engineer to help scale these platforms. You’ll be joining a small team dedicated to infrastructure, having a large opportunity to influence how we build these systems.

We’re looking for somebody experienced with:
- administering Linux servers and networks in a production environment
- infrastructure-as-code and managing infrastructure via APIs
- understanding of network configuration, common protocols, and subnetting
- Docker
- a configuration management tool such as Terraform, Ansible, Puppet, or Chef
- Git

It’d also be helpful to have experience with the following technologies, although it’s not required:
- AWS tools and solutions
- continuous delivery pipelines
- Mesos, Kubernetes, or AWS ECS

If working here sounds interesting and you'd like to be a part of building Root with us, we'd love to chat.
