Blackfynn is looking for an experienced Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) to join our growing engineering team. We’re looking for someone that enjoys working in a diverse development environment and loves tackling tough engineering problems.


Our Engineering team designs, builds, scales and optimizes the infrastructure and services powering Blackfynn’s data platform, which is leveraged by our end users and internal data science team.

We’re a team with diverse backgrounds that value working on products that make a meaningful difference. We appreciate healthy debate, curiosity, transparency, and getting things done. Above all else, we’re looking for people who are mission-driven and wish to use their talents to make meaningful impacts on people’s lives.


Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is an engineering discipline that combines software and systems engineering to build and run large-scale, distributed, fault-tolerant systems. Ensure both internally critical and externally-visible systems have reliability and uptime appropriate to users’ needs and a fast rate of improvement while keeping an ever-watchful eye on capacity and performance. Much of our software development focuses on optimizing existing systems, building infrastructure and eliminating work through automation by using a breadth of tools and approaches to solve a broad spectrum of problems.

Today, our engineering team makes use of:

  • Languages: JavaScript, CSS/SCSS, HTML; Scala and Python APIs; Rust CLI; clients for Python and Matlab
  • Frameworks: Vue, Vuex, Ramda, Scalatra, Akka
  • Visualization: D3, Vega, canvas
  • Infrastructure: Jenkins, Travis CI, Nexus, AWS, and Terraform
  • Datastores: Postgres, Neo4J, and DynamoDB

Although experience with our existing stack is great, we’re MOST interested in engineers who are able to take the complex tasks our users perform and distill them down to intuitive experiences.


To be successful as a Site Reliability Engineer at Blackfynn, we expect that:

  • You are operations centric, but like to write code.
  • You are passionate about DevOps culture.
  • Strong Linux engineering background.
  • Experience with the AWS platform (AWS certified a plus but not required).
  • Ability to use a wide variety of open source technologies and cloud services.
  • Deployment strategies, tooling, and methodologies (Jenkins, Travis-CI, Nexus).
  • Experience with infrastructure as code: Puppet, Chef, etc.
  • HashiCorp Suite – Terraform, Packer, Vagrant, Vault, etc.
  • Metrics, monitoring, tracing and incident response.
  • Proxies, queues, and security devices.
  • You constantly consider data security and privacy.
  • You constantly seek out opportunities to automate processes and tasks.
  • You’re eager to review peer code and have your code reviewed.
  • You’re team focused and care about engineering culture.


  • Competitive salaries and equity participation – we all share in Blackfynn’s success
  • Generous vacation benefits – we want you to work hard but also rest and recharge
  • Excellent health benefits – at the end of the day, we are here to improve healthcare
  • Opportunity to work with smart people, solve complex problems, and make an impact in the world


Neurologic conditions affect one in six people worldwide. The data collected when research and treating these conditions is some of the most complex in the field today. To improve the lives of those impacted, access to and collaboration around this data needs to be vastly improved. To achieve these goals, we need passionate, bright, collaborative, problem-solvers who want to use their skills and talents to make a positive impact on the world.
