Senior DevOps - Platform Infrastructure

Full-Time
Remote (Canada) or on-site, Montreal

Optable is building a decentralized data management and connectivity platform designed for the media and advertising industry. We operate private instances of our software on behalf of our customers. We use modern, secure multiparty computation and cryptographic techniques to allow matching of data while protecting privacy.

At Optable, you will join a close-knit team of talented and motivated software developers with a deep passion for technology and a track record of developing scalable low-latency platforms. You will contribute to the architectural decisions and you will be faced with very challenging problems in areas such as databases, distributed systems and cryptographic protocols. You will work with colleagues who love to teach and learn about software development.

As DevOps, you will be responsible for the architecture, performance, security, and reliability of our cloud infrastructure. You will work closely with the product development teams to build scalable applications that achieve our required throughput and latency SLOs. You will ensure that our platform is properly monitored and that incidents are handled promptly and managed using best practises. You will also be at the forefront of various challenging infrastructure projects such as

  • A multi-tenant platform that supports programmatic creation of isolated instances using kubernetes operators.
  • Porting from GCP to AWS with the long-term goal of becoming kubernetes native and cloud agnostic.
  • Scaling instances to 1M+ queries per second in production.

We offer a competitive compensation package, including a possible participation in the option pool. We mostly work from home with the possibility of heading to the Montreal downtown office whenever you need a change of pace or face to face meeting. We will provide you a macbook pro or a linux laptop if that’s your preference.

We are looking for self-starters with demonstrable industry experience and the ability to effectively balance idealism with pragmatism in a startup environment. The ideal candidate would have 5+ years of experience as a devops, SRE, or a related role, preferably working on a multi-tenant kubernetes environment. Experience with both GCP and AWS is a plus. Experience working on high throughput, low latency systems is a plus.

If this seems like something you’d love to do, reach out to us. Let’s see if there’s a fit!
