Button’s mission is to be "the better way" in mobile commerce. Today we work with some of the largest and most interesting businesses in the world, connecting customers through higher-quality, better-performing user experiences. We process billions of requests per month on systems built with a strong bias towards stability and reliability, yet we balance this with curiosity and a willingness to experiment and take risk.
To date, our infrastructure has been developed by the same engineers that lead and build our product. Because of this, you will have the unique advantage of joining an engineering team with broad production experience and a deep-seated appreciation for the things which keep the pager quiet. Fast deploys, excellent monitoring, continuous peer review, and a mystery-free working environment are all things we hold especially dear. (You can read about some of the things we’ve built on our engineering blog.)
As Director of Infrastructure, you will take ownership of and be responsible for evolving our production environment and serving systems. Your challenge will be to take us from “good” to “great”: You’ll build a team to take over the foundational pieces of our stack, hiring engineers in infrastructure, security, and site reliability along the way. As Button’s business scales to more corners of the world, you’ll level up our global scale and redundancy without compromising operational simplicity, setting strategy and roadmap for how we grow.
