Arctic Wolf, with its unicorn valuation, is the leader in security operations in an exciting and fast-growing industry—cybersecurity. We have won countless awards for our excellence in security operations and remain dedicated to providing an industry-leading customer and employee experience.

Our mission is simple: End Cyber Risk. We’re looking for a Developer - Platform & Infrastructure to be a part of making this happen.

About the Role

Our highly talented Infrastructure teams continue to advance our container orchestration journey, and are looking for a candidate to join the the Platform Engineering team. You will advise and support teams in converting and upgrading both internal and external-facing services, maintain the container orchestration infrastructure, and advocate for new Kubernetes and EKS features. These efforts are key to improving scalability, reliability and developer experience: all things we strive to achieve.

Many of our services today are already containerized, but require insightful planning, tooling and design to successfully work at scale and take advantage of Kubernetes features - our preferred orchestration platform. A developer in this role will also write microservices that run in a maintenance or management plane, providing better overall workload observability to reduce incident frequency and severity.

Some of the things you might work on include:

  • Enhancing our approach for Kubernetes (EKS) cluster provisioning, maintenance, upgrades and decommissioning, allowing service owners to achieve zero or low downtime for their workloads with minimal effort

  • Developing tools to detect public cloud provider service limits and automate corrective measures

  • For services and scenarios where fully automated remediation is not desired or feasible, writing microservices to extract actionable data from production systems - which allows reliability engineering team or service owners to achieve better understanding and faster resolution

  • Reviewing how R&D teams provision and use other managed cloud resources (load balancers, storage, databases, event streaming), enabling them to define and control these resources as code alongside their service itself

  • Researching new container technologies and Kubernetes APIs, running trials and proof-of-concept work that enhance capabilities, reduce cost, or are required to stay up to date

  • Continuously improving the security of the platform itself, including working across teams to provide least-privilege access with IAM policies, security groups and other access control mechanisms

Desired Skills and Experience

  • Have designed, built, run and maintained distributed, scalable systems with Kubernetes

  • Uses and promotes for infrastructure-as-code in public cloud (eg: CloudFormation, Terraform, CDK)

  • Software development background in Python, Go or other high-level languages; writes maintainable code, with appropriate test coverage, that meets or exceeds industry security standards

  • Excellent written and oral communication

  • Advocates best practices in containerized services, and backs it up with concrete examples and tooling to achieve them

Additional Skills and Technologies

  • Experience in the following areas will also be an asset:

  • Strong experience with core AWS technologies including EC2, S3, Route 53, CloudWatch and IAM

  • Operated and administered Ubuntu, Amazon Linux, or other Linux variants

  • Observability, monitoring, metrics and alerting (eg: Prometheus, Thanos, AlertManager, Grafana)

  • Cloud and Kubernetes security, including service mesh and policy-based controls
