Lexer provide the data, tools and team to help companies genuinely understand and engage with customers.
We’re a small team handling big data, using the latest in technology.

TL;DR:

Lexer processes 5.5 billion points of data a day relying on technology like Elasticsearch, AWS, Terraform, and Buildkite – all with a very small team.
We’re looking for a DevOps/Infrastructure Engineer to help drive innovation, security, and stability as our business grows.

The full story:

Managing the infrastructure in a business processing these kinds of numbers requires diligence, an entrepreneurial spirit for innovation, and a whole lot of passion for detail.

At Lexer, we juggle these attributes each and every day – trying to operate a highly secure and stable environment, while running the latest tech, and of course, keeping the AWS bill to a minimum.

We’re looking for someone who can help our small team maintain our hundreds of servers and services, and improve many of our approaches across: real-time data processing, search, global data distribution, rapid build processes, a near-zero-downtime status, and security.

We expect you to have:

  • Experience with AWS EC2, S3, SQS, IAM and general AWS security
  • Knowledge of Linux and Docker
  • An understanding of Infrastructure as Code, or better, experience with Terraform
  • Experience with CI/CD tools
  • A fierce attention to detail, and personal pride in the quality of your work
  • An ability to work with developers to help build the best product possible

Any knowledge, or a passion to learn about:

  • Elasticsearch or Lucene
  • Graph Databases
  • AWS ECS, Lambda, Kinesis, ASG, Aurora, Batch, Athena, and more
  • High-volume data platforms
  • Software development

If this is you, we would love to hear from you. We want you to rock our customers’ world with us.

Objectives
  • Create a suite of reliable infrastructure to help keep Lexer’s applications running smoothly
  • Monitor hundreds of systems and respond to alerts to reduce downtime and provide platform stability
  • Create and discover new deployment workflows to assist other developers and data scientists
  • Hunt out and design simple, elegant solutions for cutting edge technical problems
Role breakdown
  • 60% discovering new technology and maintaining the Lexer technology stack
  • 10% assisting clients with data imports
  • 10% ensure Lexer remains compliant with operational and security audits
  • 20% assisting Lexer team members with deployment and infrastructure
