We're on the lookout for a new member in Operations!
The DuckDuckGo Operations team primarily performs two critical functions:
1. Keep the search engine available online and return results quickly.
2. Streamline development environments used by our growing staff to collaborate on software updates and test their changes.
While these two objectives may seem dissimilar they are integrally connected.
By reducing friction in the development workflow we empower the developers to continue to make significant improvements to the product. This translates to an enriched search experience for our end users. By keeping the search engine available and stable we help millions of people get the results they need when they turn to DuckDuckGo for answers. The team uses a variety of tools to help achieve these goals, and we're always striving for improvement. By joining a small team at this stage you will have the opportunity to help shape our growing infrastructure!
As a member of the team your colleagues will rely on you for help. We all work together to ensure site reliability, and the developers turn to us when issues appear in their environment. This also means that we engage in active monitoring and response -- we share the burden of on call responsibilities and are always available to help each other in a crisis. We all enjoy problem solving and hope you do too!
