Platform Engineer, Infrastructure
Fieldguide is establishing a new state of trust for global commerce and capital markets through automating and streamlining the work of assurance and audit practitioners specifically within cybersecurity, privacy, and ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance). Put simply, we build software for the people who enable trust between businesses.
We’re based in San Francisco, CA, but built as a remote-first company that enables you to do your best work from anywhere. We're backed by top investors including 8VC, Floodgate, Y Combinator, DNX Ventures, Global Founders Capital, Justin Kan, Eric Ries, and more.
We value diversity — in backgrounds and in experiences. We need people from all backgrounds and walks of life to help build the future of audit and advisory. Fieldguide’s team is inclusive, driven, humble and supportive. We are deliberate and self-reflective about the kind of team and culture that we are building, seeking teammates that are not only strong in their own aptitudes but care deeply about supporting each other's growth.
As an early stage start-up employee, you’ll have the opportunity to build out the future of business trust. We make audit practitioners’ lives easier by eliminating up to 50% of their work and giving them better work-life balance. If you share our values and enthusiasm for building a great culture and product, you will find a home at Fieldguide.
About the role:

Coordinate closely with the Application pillar in our Platform team as we tackle major initiatives like multi-region deployments and telemetry improvements
A typical candidate will have:
3+ years of total experience in SRE, DevOps, or infrastructure roles
Experience with high-uptime environments and IaC principles
Experience with cloud platforms, preferably AWS
Experience with container runtime architectures such as Kubernetes

Proficiency with at least one programming language, preferably TypeScript, Python, or Go
1+ year in a startup environment or a desire to work at an earlier-stage startup
We'd love to talk to you if you have:
Deep knowledge of the Linux container and Kubernetes ecosystems
Extensive experience designing infrastructure on Amazon Web Services (AWS)
