About Us 
Chainlink Labs is the primary contributing developer of Chainlink, the decentralized computing platform powering the verifiable web. Chainlink is the industry-standard platform for providing access to real-world data, offchain computation, and secure cross-chain interoperability across any blockchain. Chainlink Labs helps power verifiable applications for banking, DeFi, global trade, and gaming by collaborating with some of the world’s largest financial institutions, notably Swift, DTCC, and ANZ. Chainlink Labs also works with top Web3 teams, including Aave, Compound, GMX, Maker, and Synthetix. Chainlink Labs was ranked in Newsweek’s 100 Most Loved Workplaces 2023 in both the United States and United Kingdom.

The Engineering Team
At Chainlink Labs, our engineering team pushes the scale and capabilities of decentralized applications across the industry. The Chainlink Network holds >70% market share in the oracle space, solving real-world problems by enabling smart contracts to securely interact with off-chain data/computation.

We value talented and driven craftsmen who work collaboratively to tackle complex challenges, deliver product impact, and grow as builders. Join us and shape the future of blockchain technology and decentralized finance.

The infrastructure org enables Chainlink development and maintains services that support the health of the most widely-adopted oracle network in the world. The Node Operations team are the ‘Gold Standard’ when it comes to running Chainlink, streamlining the experience for any would-be node operator. They manage all of the internally-deployed nodes—like testnet OCR, VRF, Automation and blockchain nodes -- both internal and external. As a Site Reliability Engineer, you will help us solve some of the unique challenges of blockchain oracle architecture and be primarily responsible for the Chainlink ecosystem's off-chain part.

We are distributed across time zones and continents, and we embrace remote work. In the Infrastructure team, we follow the infrastructure-as-code approach and practice GitOps. Our on-call rotation uses the follow-the-sun pattern: you will be on call some of the time, but there should not be any overnight shifts.

We all have different backgrounds and are determined to help you succeed no matter where you are or who you are. If you think you would do a great job at Chainlink, we are looking forward to speaking with you, even if you don't match 100% of the job requirements: those describe people we've usually had a great time working with, but they're not a tick-box exercise.

Your Impact

    • Run internal Chainlink and Blockchain nodes
    • Provide enterprise level blockchain connectivity to those who are trying to build something
    • Pair with engineers from across the company to help with troubleshooting, deploy new services, and figure out how to increase developer velocity and eliminate pain points
    • Building automation and tooling to make those things easier
    • Support monitoring services that watch over the entire Chainlink network.
    • Deploy and maintain various externally-facing services like reference Chainlink nodes used by developers and customers (including critical services such as Chainlink VRF)
    • Improve the reliability and observability of our internal infrastructure
    • Provide our engineers with a reliable release pipeline and empower them to release and deploy Chainlink and adjacent tools extremely quickly

Requirements

    • Excitement for blockchain, Web 3.0, and similar decentralized technologies
    • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, similar technical field of study, or equivalent practical experience
    •  4+ years of relevant professional experience in SRE and Software Engineering background
    • Experience with a modern cloud platform, infrastructure-as-code, containers, container-orchestration and observability
    • We use AWS, Terraform, Docker, Kubernetes, Grafana and Prometheus
    • Experience building Automation and/or Powertooling to reduce toil 
    • Strong communication skills. It’s a fully remote job that requires working with multiple stakeholders across all of Engineering. Great communication is as essential as the technical knowledge for this role
    • Experience with distributed systems and container orchestration. You have maintained or even built Kubernetes clusters before and feel comfortable deploying complete new services on them or have familiarity with Docker
    • Experience working closely with software engineering teams to promote best practices such as CI/CD and security
    • Awareness of reliability concepts such as: SL(A/O/I)s, building scalable systems and what it means to be “production ready"

Desired Qualifications

    • Experience with Go, Python, Typescript
    • Familiarity with GitOps and tools like ArgoCD and GitHub Actions
    • Industry recognised certifications such as the CKA and AWS Certified Solutions Architect
    • Blockchain experience running blockchain/chainlink nodes and/or creating smart contracts using Solidity
    • Experience working in scale-up companies of a similar size or early-stage startups
