Infrastructure Operations - Lead/Manager

EngineeringParis
Since the early days, Algolia has been running hybrid infrastructure largely based on bare metal servers. This approach gives Algolia complete control over the performance of the system but also brings challenges in automation, maintenance and provisioning. With its rapid growth, Algolia's infrastructure is doubling every year and what used to be a handful servers in 1 datacenter is now almost 3000 bare-metal servers across 17 regions and 70+ datacenters. All that without compromise of security or availability.
There will be more servers, more datacenters and more regions. Are up for the challenge?
