About the team

The HubSpot Product team is made up of over 700 engineers, designers, product managers, and researchers. We're passionate about building tools that help small and medium-sized businesses market, sell, and serve their customers — and ultimately, grow better.

Those tools end up in the HubSpot application platform, which itself is made up of thousands of services, workers, and jobs spanning over 170 teams and thousands of repos. Our teams work autonomously to deploy these systems across a common infrastructure, up to 3,000 times a day. As we've grown to serve over 75,000 customers in 100 countries, reliability and stability have become just as important as speed and time to market. And as we've opened up our APIs, our product has moved to the core of many of our customers' and partners' businesses.

In 2019, we built an SRE team to help our product teams focus on delivering highly available and dependable products. This team is off to a great start: evangelizing, building tools, and embedding onto product teams. We want to broaden this team's impact by building a sister team focused on chaos engineering.

Chaos engineering is a new discipline at HubSpot, and we are adding a Senior Software Engineer to the group. As we move from a reactive to proactive stance on reliability engineering, the chaos team will be instrumental in helping product and infrastructure teams better handle system failures. The primary focus of the team will be to safely degrade the state of product applications and infrastructure services to determine how they fail and to ensure they fail in ways that minimize customer pain.

The team will embark on a combination of tasks, building tooling, orchestrating game days, consulting and embedding on teams to help with remediations, and evangelizing failure testing.

What we're looking for:

  • Interest or experience with chaos engineering, SRE culture, and improving reliability with automation
  • Experience designing and operating distributed systems and cloud infrastructure at scale
  • Interest or experience with evangelizing best practices and working collaboratively with other engineering teams to solve for the customer
