  • Experience with containers or Kubernetes infrastructure
  • A passion for sharing knowledge and collaborating with others to solve problems
  • A data driven approach to problem solving
  • A desire to build internal platforms with a focus on self-service and ease of use
  • Written internal tooling or services to bridge infrastructure gaps
  • An interest in open sourcing internal projects or contributing to open source projects
  • Managed AWS Infrastructure with Terraform

About our Application & Platform Infrastructure Team: 

Enova’s Application & Platform Infrastructure team is responsible for building and managing shared infrastructure and platforms used to run internal applications. These platforms are built in a manner that enables teams to provision and run applications without depending on our team. The bulk of this provisioning leverages Terraform as that interface to provision services as containers, lambdas, or VMs. Custom tooling is leveraged to smooth out any gaps for managing these services after provisioning. We typically leverage Go, Ruby, or Bash for our tooling, but believe in the right tool for the right job. The domain of our team resides between the application layer and the virtualization layer. As a result, we are only responsible and on-call for the provisioning interface, tooling and the underlying Kubernetes infrastructure. 

We balance internal customer feedback and our team’s vision when setting the roadmap and features for these platforms. Our daily work is driven by an agile process owned by our team and improved as needed. We leverage GitHub at the core of this workflow via Issues, Pull Requests, and Project boards. Our work is usually large project based but we try to segment the work into smaller tasks that multiple team members can work on. We leverage slack, video chat, or screen sharing when swarming and pairing on work or incidents. Along with code reviews, this helps ensure that knowledge gets distributed across our team.

Data Engineer II

What projects are you most excited about?

My job requires me to think about my work from many different angles, and often make decisions when there is no obvious 'right' answer. I really enjoy the opportunity of tackling new challenges and mastering different decision-making frameworks.

Monica

Sr Manager, Product Management

How does the company support your career growth?

Enova supported my career/growth with training when I started. In baseline, the training program for new software engineers, we were given the time to learn before joining a team. It was great to have dedicated time just focused on learning and getting acclimated to Enova before jumping into project work.

Elena

Software Engineer II

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Enova is willing to take a chance on you. When I started at Enova I had very little formal experience, and since then I have had 3 very different roles in the company and have done things I wouldn't have imagined were possible for me!
