Production Systems Engineer (Cloud Platform, CICD, Developer Tools)

Description

You became an engineer because you believed in technology’s ability to make a difference in the world. So why would you spend your days building things that don’t matter? At Groupon, we spend our days developing tools, platforms and experiences that help small businesses thrive in their local communities. We may look like an ordinary e-commerce app, but under the surface we are using cutting edge technology to build products that regularly positively impact the lives of 48MM people and 100,000 merchants.

Of course, local merchants aren’t the only ones who will benefit from your work—you will too. We are looking for outstanding software engineers excited by the challenge of building out Groupon’s container-based platform on public cloud. 

We work as part of Groupon’s Engineering Excellence team to provide microservice owners the infrastructure and tools needed to rapidly deploy and manage their applications. We operate Kubernetes and Mesos container management platforms for both on-premise and public cloud infrastructure, and support microservices written in multiple languages (e.g. Java, Ruby, Node). Groupon will be moving many of our applications to public cloud, and we are looking for a talented and passionate engineer to join our cloud migration team in Bangalore. 

In this role, you will be part of a team of engineers focused on ensuring the smooth migration from legacy build and deploy tools to a new cloud-based CI/CD system. You will collaborate with engineering teams across Groupon, working to understand their development processes and guiding them towards best practices that are built into and supported by the CI/CD platform.  You are comfortable with the fast pace of an evolving set of technologies that make of the platform and the increasing number of internal customers looking to engage with it. The capabilities we are building will be used by every engineering team at Groupon, and this is your chance to influence how software is built and deployed at a company-wide scale.

Responsibilities:

*Write high-quality code using SOLID principles and fully covered by unit and integration tests. 

*Work with service owners across the company to ensure their CI/CD pipelines are functional, fast and driving a migration towards cloud.

*Support services on different technology stacks with application containerization, deployment and operation on Kubernetes/AWS.

*Drive CI/CD best practices on development teams through tooling and evangelization.

*Develop tools, new features and automation to provide a world class CI/CD experience for engineering teams, with systems that offer high availability and low latency for building, testing, publishing and deploying.

*Collaborate with owners of common building blocks (logging, metrics, database, etc.) to ensure that the CI/CD pipelines support their best practices and make it easy for engineers to integrate with Groupon standards
