Fixing the user experience in global trade.


We are reinventing global trade.

The opportunity

The Developer Experience team is rapidly growing, and we are looking for engineers to contribute at all levels. This team focuses on optimizing the developer experience and maximizing engineering productivity. Our applications are currently running on Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), but with our recent migration to Service-oriented architecture (SOA), we’re starting to push the limits.  We are building the Flexport Kubernetes Engine (FKE) to support stateful and stateless workloads and integrate multiple AWS managed services. This team builds our CI/CD pipeline, enabling deployments to our various environments on this new infrastructure.

You will:

  • Develop reusable tools, frameworks, processes, and automation around build/deploy/test workflows that help engineers set up, implement, and deliver their services as quickly and easily as possible.
  • Codify software development life cycle (build, deploy, test, refactor, release with no downtime) that enable high-quality release in all environments.
  • Own our developer experience by working with engineering teams to identify and resolve areas of developer friction.
  • Drive adoption of best practices in code health, testing, and maintainability.
  • Enable service migrations from ECS to K8S.
  • Automate integrations with engineering systems such as Github, Artifactory, Jira.

You should have:

  • 5+ years of Infrastructure or Software Engineering experience
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or equivalent practical experience.
  • Experience with containerized CI/CD pipelines and creating reproducible builds from development to production.
  • Demonstrable skills in at least one programming language.
