The CI Infrastructure team strives to enable our engineers to test and release their applications as efficiently as possible. Our role is to design, implement, and manage a solution to lower the friction of developing in a service-oriented architecture through the use of cloud computing and container technologies like Kubernetes & methodologies such as Continuous Deployment.
Engineers on our team should feel at home working in and around a broad swath of technologies, and understanding the day-to-day frictions of development work your colleagues face. You'll be working with Engineers across the company to eliminate bottlenecks and develop complementary solutions that allow developers to move faster. You enjoy building new systems from the ground up as much as you love tweaking existing systems to achieve maximum performance.
The team regularly works with open source projects and tools and we contribute back as well. Our main CI application, Kochiku, was built in-house and open sourced. Check out Square's full list of open source projects at http://square.github.io/.
