What we need:
Logikcull is a complex web application that sits on top of a distributed document processing pipeline that handles millions of documents each day. Current customer growth trends mean we have some serious infrastructure work ahead of us. Customers in 34 different countries (and counting) are depending on us. The technical challenges are staggering, but the potential impact even small changes can have is incredibly motivating. 

As an Infrastructure Engineer you’ll help us build new iterations of the Logikcull infrastructure stack. We’re increasingly motivated to operate globally and across multiple public cloud providers. You’ll collaborate with other team members to design, build, and test new architectural patterns while supporting our growing application engineering teams.

Make sure our current and future customers can be successful with Logikcull
  • Take an engineering approach to improving scalability, reliability, and performance
  • Develop multi-region solutions in AWS and tools to operate across them efficiently
  • Develop multi-cloud solutions in pursuit of reliability and flexibility for customers 
  • Document and build models for understanding the various components of the Logikcull architecture
  • Research, develop and document change plans for new infrastructure initiatives
  • Implement architectural change plans, guiding other engineers as needed
  • Perform capacity planning and technical risk assessments related to scaling
  • Develop internal heuristics for expansion. “If ____, then we’ll add another node.”
Support backend document processing engineers
  • Work with team members to capture and analyze performance metrics in document processing
  • Build instances, provision, spec and size underlying resources as needed using modern, infrastructure-as-code solutions.
