Software Engineer, Backend Infrastructure

Convex - New York, NY

Convex is a serverless infrastructure company that provides an end-to-end application data solution including a database, backend and client libraries for web developers. Our mission is to fundamentally change how software is built on the Internet and who gets to build it. We are looking for people who are passionate about improving the development experience for frontend engineers and who have strong opinions on what kinds of tools and workflows will remove barriers to getting things done.

The Role:

The Convex team has a lot of experience running large systems at scale but we have a growing infrastructure footprint across databases, servers, and devops. We are looking for a backend engineer to help build and maintain infrastructure for the future of Convex at scale. If you are passionate about building distributed systems and experienced with both designing and operating container infrastructure at scale, we would love to talk to you!

What You’ll Do:

  • Design, build, and maintain Convex’s global cloud infrastructure on AWS

  • General ownership of SRE/DevOps which includes automating Convex’s monitoring and logging tools, developing traffic infrastructure for efficient and secure routing requests, managing release processing, versioning and CI/CD

  • Establish reliability guidelines and ensuring systems meet our goals around durability, availability and performance

What Excites Us:

  • BS in Computer Science or related technical field or equivalent technical experience

  • 5+ years of backend engineering experience working on infrastructure, production engineering, SRE, or systems engineering

  • Good understanding of best practices for system configuration, building internal systems from scratch, and deploying services

  • Experience scaling in a high growth startup environment

  • Ability to write high quality code (knowledge of Rust is a plus)
