Job Description

The Core Infrastructure Compute team is responsible for designing, building, and maintaining compute solutions leveraged by the entire engineering organization. This includes everything from Kubernetes and associated integrations all the way to service discovery. As a member of the team, you will have an opportunity to shape Wish’s infrastructure from the ground up as we move from an outdated monolithic architecture to a modern service oriented architecture. You will be joining a small team of smart, driven, and collaborative engineers as we work to create a reliable, scalable, and performant infrastructure. If you are someone who takes ownership and can achieve high-level goals without clearly defined solutions, then we have a place for you here.

Core Infrastructure team at Wish prioritizes OSS usage and development, see some of what we’ve published here:

We occasionally blog about our open source, see a recent post here:

What you'll be doing:

  • Design and implement solutions and tools to manage and scale a service oriented architecture.
  • Operate, maintain, integrate, and develop multiple large self-run Kubernetes (k8s) clusters.
  • Systematically debug issues across the compute stack down to the root cause.
  • Evangelize best practices to the wider engineering organization.
  • Participate in on-call rotation to ensure that Wish’s infrastructure is highly available.


  • Bachelors, Masters, or Ph.D. in Computer Science, related field, or equivalent work experience.
  • 5+ years experience building and managing compute systems as a service at scale.
  • Skill with one or more programming languages. Python or Go preferred.
  • Experience with AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, Salt/Chef, and SOA.
  • Experience with large-scale multi datacenter environments.
