Network Reliability Engineer


About the Role:

imgix is looking for a Data Center and Networking-focused Site Reliability Engineer to join our Infrastructure Engineering team. In this role, you will work closely with other members of the team to build and operate the network and data center infrastructure that powers image delivery for some of the largest sites on the Internet.

In this role you will also engage with network carriers, data center operators, cloud operators, and other business partners in order to maintain and expand our hybrid infrastructure.

This role involves a day-to-day focus on networking and data center implementation and maintenance, with responsibilities including:


  • Maintenance and troubleshooting of carrier-grade networking equipment and associated hardware in multiple data center locations. This requires a knowledge of BGP and OSPF.
  • Use of tools such as Ansible, Terraform, Kubernetes, and custom tooling written in Python to automate management of our physical and cloud-based network elements.
  • Setup and maintenance of networking hardware from a variety of manufacturers, including Juniper routers and switches.
  • Working with the entire engineering organization to implement best practices for network security.
  • Participation in an on-call rotation to debug issues with our network and data center deployments as they arise.

Less frequent task that require involvement:

  • Physical presence at our data center locations as part of deployment and maintenance of equipment alongside on-site vendors.
  • Acting as a Peering Coordinator to establish and maintain peering relationships with other networks.
  • Participation in the design and implementation of new data center deployments and changes to our existing hybrid cloud / data center environment.
  • Working with large network carriers for provisioning of IP transit and transport capacity.

Under normal circumstances we are located in downtown San Francisco, close to BART and Caltrain. With COVID, we are working remotely and will be remote-friendly going forward even after the pandemic is under control and we can return to the office. Employee benefits are comprehensive (401k, medical, dental and vision), perks are generous (catered lunches, paid rides home, the occasional team outing), vacation time is flexible, parental leave is available and highly encouraged, and salaries are commensurate with experience. We also provide engineers with anything they (reasonably) need to be effective in their work: funky keyboards, standing desks, and gear to develop on.
