About the role

Mason is transforming mobile deployments the same way AWS transformed website development, making it easy for anyone to turn an idea into a smart product and ship it to anywhere in the world.  Our mission is to create a beautifully efficient world connected by billions of devices to work on behalf of humanity.

Come build an infrastructure company from scratch! Mason's core product is mobile infrastructure as a service ("mobile IaaS") — think elastic, customizable hardware + software + services. 

Mason is looking for an Infrastructure Engineer to partner closely with our engineering and product teams to build out the systems that power our products. This role is critical for not only our internal teams, but also for the success of our customers, who rely on Mason for many use cases: from digitizing clinical trials to improving warehouse efficiency to streamlining retail payments and more.

Mason is looking for a complex combination of grit, smarts, ingenuity and diverse perspectives (and more!). Check out our values and see if they resonate! 

What you’ll work on:

  • Collaborate with the team and assist with maintaining core systems and infrastructure used by all of Mason’s engineering teams
  • Debug issues and performance problems across services and levels of the stack
  • Contribute to improvements to our observability infrastructure
  • Identify pain points of internal development teams and determine and implement solutions to streamline build processes
  • Educate and communicate with internal teams through regular Devops office hours, documentation, and more 
  • Support teammates by participating in on-call rotation

What you bring to the table:

  • 4+ years of professional Infrastructure/Devops/SRE experience
  • Proven ability to thrive in ambiguous and dynamic work environments
  • Command over at least one programming language (Python, JS/TS, Go, Java/Kotlin, Bash)
  • Comfortable with full CI/CD workflows and tools such as GitLab CI, GitHub Actions, Jenkins, etc. 
  • Experience working with Kubernetes, Linux, Docker, AWS, Terraform, K9s, Datadog, Prometheus 
  • Applicants must be authorized to work for ANY employer in the US. We are unable to sponsor or take over sponsorship of H1B employment Visa at this time.

Bonus points for:

  • Experience working with hardware or physical devices
  • Experience with AWS Security, RBAC, IaC

Fun Perks!

  • Healthcare: Full healthcare benefits for Mason employees with competitive vision, dental, and medical insurance 
  • Transportation: Monthly reimbursement for your commuter needs to get to and from work 
  • Fitness & wellness: Monthly reimbursement for fitness classes or gym memberships (and currently, anything that makes you feel sane during our COVID crisis. i.e. gardening tools, donations to your favorite charities, books, you name it)
  • Generous PTO & sick leave: We want you to take care of yourself with a minimum of 24 PTO days, including paid company holidays
  • Parental leave: Caring for a newborn is an exciting time for parents! We offer four months of paid parental leave 
  • Dog-friendly office: Mason pups are welcome in the office 3x per week (though most teams work remotely at present)
  • And more!
