    Senior Devops Engineer


    Come join us and be part of our team as a Senior DevOps Engineer - Data/DBA  focused on Kubernetes.


    8x8 is in process of changing, modernizing and consolidating our infrastructure, systems and deployment practices. We are a global unified telecommunications company and as such we have a global infrastructure comprising of multiple physical data centers and AWS/Cloud regions. We are looking for someone up to the challenge to help us bring order, consistency, high availability and consistency across what we do on the data & database management side. As such we are looking for senior Data/DBA DevOps Engineers focused on this to help us.


    What we do:


    The ultimate goal is to help us build shared infrastructure services and automate everything from a data services point-of-view, whether it’s a database, NoSQL, or something that holds data to be consumed by others. We’re looking at migrating our infrastructure to Kubernetes so most everything we do should be done in Kubernetes as much as possible.


    What you will do:


    • You’ll help drive, implement, support and maintain data services used by 8x8. At first the focus will be on MySQL and Oracle however there is a strong desire to add other data platforms such as Hadoop, DynamoDB, Cassandra, Kafka, Redis, etc
    • Automate provisioning of data-services backends, ideally push it to do all of this in top of Kubernetes and containers.
    • Define best practices, work with application teams on best practices and ensure they are followed. Teach others how to do the right things. Automate everything.
    • Enable self-service as much as possible via automation so that application teams can do what they need without you, focus on the engineering aspect primarily.
    • Automate schema updates/migration via common pipelines and pattern to be used by application teams in their deployment processes.
    • Help drive migrating legacy data-platforms to new platforms. Both on-premise datacenters and in the Cloud.
    • Help automate the automated deployment, CI / CD of all of our services in a consistent and reliable way to production, at scale
    • Develop monitors and build alerts around error conditions and performance.
    • Ensure testing of everything done by you and the team.
    • Be expected to learn new things and technologies as needed.
    • Be on call when needed to support the infrastructure and our systems.


    What you need to know:


    • Experience with MySQL, Oracle, Cassandra, Kafka, DynamoDB, and especially containerizing them when possible would be a big plus.
    • Kubernetes and best practices around it are a big plus
    • Experience provisioning systems and applications programmatically
    • Experience managing Linux system is required, at scale even better
    • Experience with Chef / Ansible
    • Experience automating from dev to production the push of services to production.
    • Terraform is a big plus
    • Spinnaker experience a major plus
