Why Are We Hiring
Being a professional is hard. Not only do you need to be an expert in your field but you then need to worry about how you communicate, manage your time, store and share information, keep your data secure, make your tooling reliable, and a million other details. Filevine dreams of a day when all of these details are taken care of so that professionals can get back to focusing on what they love.

We are building our team because we recognize that to make good on that dream we need the help of amazingly talented people like you.

About the Team and Job
To achieve the dream of allowing professionals to focus on what they love Filevine products need key features. They need to be reliable, scalable, performant, cost effective, secure and they need to have a way to recover in the event of a disaster.

The Reliability team is responsible for thinking through these problems and engineering solutions to them. We hire excellent engineers who apply software engineering to these problems to create autonomous systems that take care of these details for us. We use the principle of continuous improvement to make each iteration of these autonomous systems better than the last.

The state of our autonomous systems are nascent with the foundational pieces either recently having been completed or currently under development.

As a Site Reliability Engineer you will be embedded with a cross functional team who has key responsibilities for certain portions of our systems. Over the course of the first year you will gain the valuable context needed to be truly effective and move at speed in the Filevine environment. During your successive years you will be given specific mission critical objectives that help build out and improve our autonomous systems and simultaneously build out your personal brand as an exceptional engineer who has built and maintained amazing systems that can grow to internet scale.
We will not sugar coat things. This job is hard. Being on call is no picnic. It is frustrating to watch as systems you have built and maintained for years suddenly and inexplicitly break in new entertaining ways. You will be stretched and pushed in ways that you could never have imagined. Without being ever vigilant this is the type of position you can quickly and easily burn out in.

We believe we are the best team at Filevine both from the perspective of how close we are to each other and how much value we provide the company. We do the work no one else wants to do because we love it. We love the challenge, we love the pressure, and we love the mission, we love making the complex seem simple. Just like we aim to make being a professional easier we spend time and energy making engineering life at Filevine a little better every day too.
If that sounds like your cup of tea apply now, we can't wait to talk with you in person.
