About Engineering Compute Infrastructure:

Bloomberg has an impressive internal Cloud that enables our applications to prosper. We’re the team of system engineers focused on scaling it. Every day we use our system architecture & engineering skills to dig deep into the Openstack architecture and influence the reliability and supportability aspects. We have a vision and a mission to automate away highly operational tasks such as break/fix, cluster migrations, new service build-outs, abuse, etc. On any given day we work with engineering, product & project managers, test and automation teams on everything from architecture to developing strategic and tactical solutions.

Join us and you’ll contribute to services that can shrink and expand based on demand, self-heal and automatically rollout.

  • Performance analysis and capacity planning for clusters
  • Troubleshoot and debug Cloud ecosystem run-time issues, which includes weekly On Call duties every 5-6 weeks.
  • Provide developer and operations documentation

You need to have:

  • Proven experience building and scaling out and managing large distributed services
  • 3+ years of experience configuring, deploying and operating OpenStack and Ceph with both block and s3 configurations
  • 2+ years of Chef and/or Ansible
