ABOUT THE ROLE
Platform Engineering creates the technologies, tools, and services that enable engineers across Peloton to build faster and scale safely, with minimal effort. By maximizing developer velocity and simplifying the ability for our engineers to scale in a safe and performant manner, we enable engineers to innovate faster, accelerating Peloton’s mission to use technology and design to connect the world through fitness, empowering people to be the best version of themselves anywhere, anytime.
We are looking for Software Engineers with strong technical ability in python, kubernetes and service scalability/reliability to help us stabilize and scale the core backend application that is (currently) powering the bulk of our backend systems. You will have the opportunity to dive into a highly visible and business critical system that enables our members to complete tens of thousands of workouts per day. You will also be at the forefront of enabling engineering teams to migrate functionality into new microservices with confidence. Finally, you will be responsible for ensuring that this system can scale appropriately during times of extreme stress – typically observed during special occasions (such as “Turkey Burn” on Thanksgiving) or when celebrities drop in to our studios. This team has a very broad scope and operates over components across the entire stack – from Cloudflare (on the edge) all the way down to caching and connection pooling strategies for SQL / NoSQL databases + caching technologies.
YOUR DAILY IMPACT AT PELOTON
- Advance our deployment pipeline and tooling ecosystem (CI/CD, Declarative Infrastructure, Fast rollbacks) for the Monolith with a focus on reducing friction and increasing feedback for the dozens of changes that are promoted to production on a daily basis
- Evangelize and nurture best practices to deliver bug-free code, using best practices such as rate-limiting, fault-tolerance, CI/CD, canary releases, test automation, and observability in order to ensure confidence in our platform
- Write understandable, testable code with an eye towards maintainability, scalability and performance
- Collaborate with engineers in teams across the org by taking part in pair programming and leading white boarding solutions, team discussions, and task breakdown
- Active engagement in technical discussions during architecture discussions, code reviews, and design docs to help promote a culture of learning and constant improvement.
- Defend the integrity of the codebase, never compromising on code quality
- Ability to collaborate with both remote and in-person teams
- Imagine and implement innovative techniques and patterns (in code or as behavior) to ensure our system as a whole can scale and/or degrade gracefully during moments of high traffic volume.
- Dive deeply into a complex tech stack to find solutions for elusive bugs or implement optimizations to save on costs, developer/member frustrations, or both.
- Help in driving adoption of microservice tooling and best practices (eg: API Gateway migration, service mesh availability, canary deployments) on the Monolith itself.
- Play a key role in measuring and ensuring the rate of regressions introduced to our API systems are minimized
YOU BRING TO PELOTON
- 2 to 5+ years of experience developing high-performance, highly scalable backend cloud application systems
- A valued team player in a dynamic, autonomous, cross-functional agile team that inspires others
- Hands-on experience building, testing, deploying, and monitoring services
- Hands-on experience decomposing monoliths into microservices
- Hands-on experience implementing event-driven architectures
- Experience interfacing with members of other teams to gain clarity, triage issues, and drive cross-functional initiatives
- Experience with both relational (e.g. PostgreSQL, MySQL) and NoSQL (e.g. DynamoDB, Cassandra, Mongo) databases
- Experience with caching technologies such as Memache, Redis
- Experience with request processing such as REST, gRPC, or GraphQL
- Experience with deployment toolings/environments such as Kubernetes, Terraform, GitHub Actions, Jenkins etc
