WHO WE ARE

Looker is on a mission to bring better insights and data-driven decisions to every business. Everything we do is aimed at making sure our customers love every aspect of Looker, from our products and technologies to our ease of doing business and our support. We are looking for curiously brilliant individuals to join our team as we reinvent data analytics.  Get data-driven and see yourself at Looker.

WHAT WE'VE GOT GOING ON

Looker is seeking a DevOps engineer to support our rapidly growing business.  You'll have a pivotal role in designing and implementing key systems, and you'll be doing it in a fast-paced environment where everything counts - security, reliability, and scalability. The ideal candidate has touched all aspects of a large production environment and is prepared to scale their own responsibilities along with the company.

The engineering team at Looker is a tight-knit group of high-performers. We value simplicity in both our code and our user interfaces. We don’t believe in large teams; we opt for small groups that move fast, communicate clearly, and achieve more. We try to choose the right tool for the job, not one tool to solve all problems. We make a huge impact on product direction, we experiment, and we iterate rapidly.

WHAT WE NEED YOU TO DO

  • Work closely with the software engineering, product management and customer support teams to design, deliver, and manage our services with high uptime.
  • Troubleshoot operations and database issues for internal and external customers.
  • Ensure system and network security.
  • Develop custom tools and automate processes.
  • Implement monitoring, develop automated provisioning, and develop self-healing automation.
  • Perform incident resolution and root cause analysis of critical outages.
  • Implement solutions to systematic failures.

WHAT YOU BRING TO LOOKER

  • Linux system administration skills
  • Experience designing and maintaining a cloud based highly-available (HA) architecture
  • Strong understanding of databases and Web server technologies
  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills
  • Experience with configuration management and monitoring tools
  • Strong scripting skills in any common scripting language available on Linux
  • Bonus for experience working as a full-stack developer or directly supporting full-stack development
  • Knowledge of best practices related to security, performance, and disaster recovery
  • Ability to work in the US without Visa sponsorship from an employer
