Job Description

Zipline operates the world's only drone delivery system at national scale to send urgent medicines like lifesaving blood and vaccines to those in need, no matter where they live. We're at the forefront of a revolution, designing, manufacturing, and operating our own fleet of drones to provide instant access to those who were previously underserved.

At Zipline, your responsibilities will be wide-ranging: help us design systems with high reliability, manage and extend our Linux-based build and deployment infrastructure, build python tools & leverage infrastructure-as-code frameworks to build and monitor the infrastructure at our Distribution Centers in remote parts of the world, and be the "go-to" person for network and infrastructure issues and updates.

During your first month, you will:

* Familiarize yourself with the Distribution Center infrastructure and start with feature additions to ensure resiliency
* Understand how IP traffic from drones, controller applications, and server applications flows through the network
* Understand our build & deployment system, and help with management and upkeep of both on-prem and cloud assets

Within your first 3 months:

* Implement a mechanism for consolidated monitoring of our assets across the globe
* Implement wireless segmentation at our Distribution Centers, separating production and user traffic
* Learn our iptables-based firewalls and own management and improvement

By 6 months, you will:

* Work with the team to improve our security posture
* Gather requirements and plan upgrades to the network and server equipment in our Distribution Centers
* Help come up with fault-tolerant designs for our application servers

Strong candidates will have many of these traits:

* Linux is your platform
* You've done a deep-dive on network protocols and firewalls
* You're security-minded and worry about attack vectors
* You have experience in designing and managing cloud and on-prem infrastructure
* You can get it done in python (preferably python3) and are a test-driven coder
* You document your work so others can learn quickly how to integrate with or make use of what you've built
* You have a collaborative mentality that works well on lightly-structured teams
* You're excited by novel and exotic design constraints

Our mission is to provide every human on Earth with instant access to vital medical supplies. To achieve this, we are building an awesome team of smart, dedicated engineers who come from all sorts of backgrounds. If you are unsure if you meet all the requirements listed above but still think you provide value not explicitly listed, we'd love for you to apply!
