Site Reliability Engineer

Seattle, WA

Remote, United States

At Unearth, we're tackling complex, real-world problems in the Built World through our market leading mobile Geospatial Work Management software. Through the power of maps & our integrated data platform we’re transforming how cities, utilities, and defense agencies build and maintain their expansive array of physical infrastructure.

We’re looking for a Site Reliability Engineer to join us in creating a new generation of map-based collaboration software that delivers robust data and workflow management in a simple, user-friendly platform. You’ll develop our infrastructure, mostly using terraform and cloudformation, in AWS. You’ll be the first specialist joining a team of generalist platform engineers, so your experience will be brought to bear on the overall infrastructure supporting several application & data teams, with a focus on optimizing for scalability and reliability as the company grows.

What you are:

  • Experienced working with cloud based platforms, in particular AWS
  • Interested in understanding the glue code that connects the different parts of a larger system, and how to improve it iteratively
  • Convinced that everything in production should be under version control
  • A skilled communicator experienced working in a diverse team environment
  • Data- and metrics-driven
  • Flexible and entrepreneurial

What you’ll do:

  • Quickly prototype new ideas based on real-time customer feedback
  • Maintain a high-quality bar while iterating on the infrastructure as needed
  • Write terraform, python, SQL, YAML, and bash, with a bit of nodejs
  • Bring a flexible attitude every day as new challenges are always around the corner


It's always a plus if you've had the following experiences:

  • Have operated RDS for PostgreSQL in production
  • Have experience with PostGIS
  • Have scaled a product from V1 while maintaining low churn and high customer growth
  • You've worked with spatial data types (point clouds, elevation models, 3D CAD and others)
  • You've been responsible for operations of an at-scale cloud-based SaaS solution


We offer great compensation, equity, performance-based stock options, and many other benefits including:

  • An amazing team and supportive culture.  Pre-Covid, we offered catered lunches and fun team events like drone racing, mini golf, and wine tasting.  During Covid, we’ve adapted with virtual events like escape rooms and cooking classes.
  • We have a new office just across the street from the Space Needle and support flexible working arrangements including work-from-home, but are also welcoming of remote team members in our time zone (PST)
  • Unlimited personal time off (PTO)
  • Medical, dental, and vision
  • Parental and sick leave
  • 401(k) plan
  • Transit/remote office reimbursement


We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

About Unearth

Maps Meets Massive Storage 

The global infrastructure powering humanity's transportation, basic utilities and massive structures is managed by outdated and inefficient software solutions. Delays between data collected or observed in the field and its analysis in the office leads to wasted resources, productivity delays and in extreme cases, catastrophic events. 

The massive data collected from these assets are managed in archaic files and folders. At Unearth, we're empowering the Built World by providing the world's first Geospatial Work Management system powerful enough to support our industries' largest players and simple enough to be customized by office workers and utilized by field workers. Unearth is disrupting the $50B GIS (Geographic Information Systems) industry by providing revolutionary tools and expanding the addressable market for map-based asset & workflow management solutions.
