Mozilla Staff Engineer, Infrastructure

Posted on April 29th, 2019

Rust is a programming language that empowers everyone to build reliable and efficient software. Rust supports easy parallel execution while statically ruling out segmentation faults, data races, and numerous other classes of bugs.

We are looking for a software engineer who is excited about becoming part of Rust's infrastructure and/or crates.io teams. As a member of these teams, you will

  • improve the Rust project’s development infrastructure, including continuous integration, build artifact generation, GitHub bots, and other development workflows.
  • help develop crates.io, the central package manager for Rust
  • help develop related components to crates.io, for example custom private registries and cached binaries

As Rust is an open-source project, a big focus for this role is collaboration and mentorship. You will work with people from both inside and outside of Mozilla.   You should have experience in back-end server and operations work. Some experience with AWS and CI systems like Travis and AppVeyor would be a plus. Development work will primarily be in Rust.

 

As an engineer working on Rust at Mozilla, you will...

  • Work on a distributed team located all over the world
  • Work in the open on an entirely open-source codebase
  • Work closely with open-source volunteers and the Rust community
  • Have a significant degree of autonomy and opportunity for growth

Your Professional Profile

  • MS in Computer Science or equivalent experience
  • Demonstrated background in back-end engineering and operations
  • Some experience with Rust
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Ability to work independently within a highly remote team
