About AngelList Venture:

At AngelList, we exist to help startups save the world. We’re building the definitive platform for startups — where they raise money through AngelList Venture, build teams through AngelList Talent, and launch their products through Product Hunt.

The venture team is fundamentally altering how startups raise money by replacing early-stage venture capital with modern technology. We've delivered over $1B to more than 3,000 startups over the past few years. Our infrastructure allows investors to build on top of AngelList instead of a traditional VC. This will result in a more innovative, efficient & fair market.

We recently celebrated our ten year anniversary. Here's a fun look back at exciting milestones and a preview of what to expect from AngelList Venture going forward: https://angel.co/blog/the-next-decade

About the role:
We are hiring our first devops / infrastructure engineer for the Venture team. As the founding engineer, you'll have the freedom to design and build out our cloud infrastructure from first principles.

We have a small, tight-knit engineering team (there's 7 of us) and we pride ourselves on having an outsized impact on the industry. Our offices are in Seattle and San Francisco, but we have team members all over the globe.

You will:

  • Architect, implement, and maintain the core cloud infrastructure used by our engineering team.
  • Own the complete code deployment lifecycle.
  • Work with the team to craft sustainable and scalable engineering practices.
  • Debug complex production issues across the whole stack.
  • Take responsibility for the code you own and improve our codebase with your presence.

You have:

  • The ability to write high quality code in a programming language (e.g. Ruby, Javascript, Go).
  • Deep expertise working with Kubernetes on AWS or GCP.
  • Strong command of infrastructure as code tools such as Terraform.
  • Working knowledge of Rails to be comfortable making changes directly in our codebase.
  • Experience maintaining continuous integration and deployment infrastructure for rapid iteration.
  • A strong track record of launching projects with significant complexity and high levels of ambiguity.
  • A strong sense of self-motivation and love working with a high level of ownership and responsibility.

If you're interested in joining us, but don't tick every box above, we'd still encourage you to apply. We're building a diverse team whose skills balance and complement one another. We're happy to consider where you might be able to make the biggest impact.
