We are in the process of transforming our monolith Ruby service to a polyglot microservice system. The service infrastructure and developer experience teams play an important role in this journey. We own the scaffolding to enable application teams to build and operate their services. This includes RPC framework, infrastructure for event streams and async jobs, service container design and observability integrations, service templates and bootstrapping, artifacts packaging and distribution, end-to-end test framework, CI / CD pipelines, high-level codebase organization, devops tooling, etc. As the leader of the team, you will work in a highly collaborative and fast-changing environment, and you will lead the team to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the engineering organization as well as the scalability of our architecture.
Our continuous releases are integrated with Buildkite and Github. On the frontend, we create our views with React, manage the flow of data with GraphQL/Relay, and test our application with Jest, JUnit, or Cypress. On the backend, our services are written in Java with Spring Boot and Ruby on Rails. We have adopted gRPC for service API definition, and event-driven design based on AWS Kinesis Data Streams. Our data is persisted in Postgres and Redis. Our stack is hosted on AWS using Elastic Container Service, and we are in the process of migrating to Kubernetes and Istio.
