DEVOPS/SRE TEAM LEAD at Zwift
Rio de Janeiro, BR

WHO WE ARE:

 

We are the fitness company born from gaming. And we're on a mission to make more people, more active, more often. We make an at home training game that connects cyclists and runners with each other around the world. Launched from the sunny beaches of Long Beach, CA with offices in NYC, London, and Rio de Janeiro, the Zwift community is active in 195 countries (yup - more countries than the United Nations) and growing. We're endlessly positive, relentlessly inventive, and always looking to improve… wanna join?

 

 

WHO WE'RE SEEKING:

 

The Zwift server platforms run on heterogeneous and distributed cluster stacks composed of several different layers and nodes that require a number of different technologies that run 24/7 for the international user community. We are constantly modifying the software, adding and improving features and making changes to accommodate the increased load that comes with the steady growth of our successful business. All changes must happen with no disruption to the service; this requires a detailed monitoring platform, a great level of automation in tests (functional, load and performance, etc), release deployment orchestration. Zwift’s continuous growth requires us to form a dedicated team of Technical Operations, DevOps and SRE specialists to monitor, improve and maintain the platform on a continuous basis.
