We are a San Francisco based team building self-driving semi trucks. We have raised $117MM in total and are backed by Tiger Global Management ($70MM Series C) and Sequoia Capital ($30MM Series B). We move freight daily between LA and Phoenix using our purpose built transfer hubs. This is an incredibly exciting time for autonomous driving and our team is looking to grow.
The infrastructure team at Embark casts a wide net over Embark's engineering and has a broad impact across the entire stack. Infrastructure is a small team but has a major impact - managing all data engineering efforts for Embark’s petabyte-scale data lake, which powers advanced use cases like simulation, machine learning, and deep analysis of our vehicle’s performance. In addition to that, they build all of the real-time systems that enable remote monitoring of our fleet, including live streaming of video and sensor data over LTE, while also managing Embark’s machine learning infrastructure, continuous integration pipelines, vehicle software platform, and cloud security.
As a cloud infrastructure engineer, you’ll be responsible for helping architect the backend systems that make this possible.
Some of your responsibilities will include:
Take part in high-level architecture of large-scale distributed systems, promoting security, reliability and scalability
Oversee and ensure the security of our cloud infrastructure, data, and internal services
Evaluate, architect and deploy new database systems and data pipelines to enable our engineering team to gain richer insights into our data
Build out systems to support compute heavy workloads, such as machine learning and simulation
Manage our petabyte-scale data lake
Your experience might include:
3+ years managing infrastructure on a major cloud platform (AWS, GCP or Azure) for a medium to large sized company
Managing large Kubernetes clusters powering microservice-oriented architectures
Experience with infrastructure-as-code frameworks such as Terraform, CloudFormation
Experience using configuration management tools such as Ansible, Puppet or Chef
Experience with classical relational and NoSQL databases
When you apply, address the application to Jacqueline and let me know why you want to join our team.
