The Infrastructure Software team is building Wayfair's own private cloud through software automation and abstractions built atop our collocated datacenters. Our infrastructure footprint extends into the public cloud and we have standardized on Hashicorp's Terraform as the tool to describe our environment through code, so now we only have to enable our self-hosted systems to change and scale automatically the way environments like Google Cloud Platform can do.
You will work closely with our infrastructure engineering groups to layer software automation onto their systems in ways easily consumed by our >2000 software engineers. Extensive experience in software development, DevOps concepts, and solving technical problems at the human level is paramount to success.
Wayfair is looking to on board a talented development focused infrastructure engineer to help automate the storage infrastructure, by maintaining existing and creating new automation tools to continue to drive transformation of our environments. This team supports the technical foundation of our rapidly growing large-scale Internet e-commerce platform and corporate applications. Our projects center around growth and scale; we are always working to improve and expand Wayfair's storage and server environment.
What You'll Do:
* A partner with infrastructure teams like Storage Technology, Server Engineering, Virtualization, and Networking to define the capability gaps that software can fill, and guide the architecture of those solutions. * A player-coach for your team. Mentor and share knowledge with less experienced members of the team * Help to grow the global production storage infrastructure that underpins our e-commerce platform * Build, develop and maintain custom storage management automation, monitoring and reporting tools * Troubleshoot, resolve, and assist in complex Fibre Channel and File Storage related issues through code * Participate in automation initiatives that interface with our server & networking frameworks * Communicate with internal and external parties to refine requests and create a design/plan to address the true goal (which is not necessarily the same as the request) * Take complex projects and break them down into smaller delegate-able piece * Contribute to software solutions using a variety of technologies, as the situation requires. Interact with large-scale infrastructure system APIs or extension platforms from vendors like Dell EMC, VMware, Cisco, and others. * Flexibility is paramount to success as you create the strategy for this team's growth and operation.
What You'll Need:
Other traits we look for:
* Excellent interpersonal and team building skills * An analytical, creative, and innovative approach to solving problems
