Mysten Labs believes that decentralized and open protocols are the bedrock of the internet of value. This is why at Mysten Labs, we are creating foundational infrastructure to accelerate the adoption of decentralized protocols based on blockchain technologies.

We are hiring Production Engineers now as we approach our testnet and mainnet launches later this year. We have a strong team focused on internal infrastructure and are building out the teams that will build and support the infrastructure for running the production network. Working with node operators to build tooling and monitoring infrastructure for the Sui network.

Production Engineers keep Mysten’s production infrastructure running smoothly even in the face of heavy traffic or attacks from adversaries. They have expertise in release, deployment, logging, and monitoring processes. They are obsessed with automation. They work closely with distributed systems experts to ensure that the software is configured and deployed correctly.

What You’ll Do:

  • Work closely with engineers to productionize systems, keeping in mind operational best practices with a heavy focus on automation.

  • Designing, developing, and deploying new systems that enhance throughput, latency, reliability, availability, and security for the blockchain and the blockchain ecosystem services.

  • End-to-end ownership of infrastructures (for handling telemetry data, for performing testing, etc).

Our Ideal Candidate Will Have:

  • 5+ years of experience with hands-on production engineering, including containerization, deployment, orchestration, logging, and monitoring

  • Experience working with open-source frameworks for these tasks such as Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform

  • Experience with public cloud platforms such as AWS and GCP

  • Experience building infrastructure and tooling to automate key aspects of the release and monitoring processes

  • Experience writing/maintaining clear and detailed runbooks

  • Excitement about applying production engineering best practices in a decentralized setting and tackling the challenges and opportunities that emerge

  • Fluency in a systems programming language such as Rust (used extensively at Mysten), Go, or C++

  • Fluency in higher-level languages (e.g., Python, Ruby, Shell Scripting)

Nice to Have:

  • Experience with blockchain and crypto
