AngelList is a small group of former & future founders helping startups change the world. Our mission is to decrease the frictions that get in the way of startups becoming great companies. We’re building a new generation of tools to help startups build teams (angel.co/build-your-team), launch products (producthunt.com), and raise money (angel.co/invest).

The Infrastructure Engineering Team

Our infrastructure engineering team is key to making our unique engineering culture possible: Our teams are small, built on mutual respect, high trust, and low management. They ship fast and they ship constantly. We can maintain that pace because of the continuous integration, deployment, server and monitoring infrastructure that this team builds and maintains.

We like to keep things as simple as possible to make them easy to understand for the entire engineering team. We give every engineer self-service tools for common tasks. We automate and outsource as much of our jobs as we possibly can. Moving our hosting into immutable, disposable containers allows us to maintain this infrastructure with minimal overhead. We don't mind being on call because we set ourselves up not to get paged in the first place.

What We Look For

At AngelList, we look for engineering talent from every background, discipline, and geography. Diversity in skills and life experience make our team stronger and give us the tools to understand our diverse user base. If you're interested in joining us, but don't tick every box below, we'd still encourage you to apply.

Here are a few things we're looking for:

* You know enough Ruby and Rails to be comfortable making changes directly in our codebase.
* You are familiar with hosting web applications in AWS and Docker.
* You are experienced at maintaining a continuous integration and deployment infrastructure for rapid iteration.
* You're used to working in small startups.
* You handle uncertainty and ambiguity well because you'll come up with and implement a plan of action even with limited information.
* You're self-motivated and love working with a high level of ownership and responsibility.

Perks and Benefits:

* Employee equity plan
* Eat for free while you're at work
* Buy whatever hardware setup you need to be effective
* Our team is distributed so you can work from home or remotely full-time or part of the time—it's up to you
* Unlimited vacation
* Comprehensive health, dental, vision, and fertility plans
* Between 12 and 22 weeks of paid parental leave
* Generous fitness and commuter packages
* Annual company offsite
* Dog-friendly workplace
