About Us

Our mission is to make payments safer and easier for everyone. We started with a consumer product that helps people spend more safely using virtual payment cards. Then we launched a simple, modern API to make our payment and card issuing infrastructure available to other startups, fintechs, and brands. Today, that infrastructure powers hundreds of millions of dollars in payments for consumers and some of the most innovative companies in the world.

The Role

As a Senior Site Reliability Engineer at Lithic, you’ll be responsible for real-time systems that move millions of dollars every day.  An ideal candidate can design redundant, reliable systems in unpredictable environments that handle failures before they can affect customers. SREs combine engineering experience with architectural knowledge to automate processes and maintain uptime to scale the business.

What you’ll do

  • Design redundant systems to maintain high availability of production services
  • Create deployment and test pipelines for various applications
  • Collaborate on applications with software engineers across the stack
  • Manage a growing hybrid cloud (AWS & VMWare ESXi) infrastructure
  • Ensure high code quality with code reviews and automated testing
  • Build new development tools to help expand our capabilities to automate
  • PCI Compliance and InfoSec

We’re looking for

  • 4+ years of professional software engineering experience in DevOps or SRE roles
  • Bachelors in Computer Science, Computer Systems, or equivalent experience
  • Deep understanding of Linux systems and networking
  • Experience with relational database cluster management (preferably PostgreSQL)
  • Familiarity with Python, Bash, or other scripting languages
  • Ability to write clear, maintainable, thoughtfully commented code
  • Experience with Jenkins, AWS, and Docker

Nice to haves

  • Experience in Ansible (or other configuration management tools), Kubernetes, and other CICD toolsets
  • Knowledge of strongly typed languages such as Java and C++
  • Understanding of distributed computing concepts including replication and quorum
  • Experience with REST and other aspects of API development
