The Wave Operations Engineering team supports the success of our ecosystem by building the tools and systems that host our sites. We work tightly with all delivery teams to share our knowledge of how web applications run, from how load-balancers work to the impact of pre-warming application servers.We take pride in delivering application performance, operational flexibility, and increased quality of life. We average 14+ production deploys a day on our platforms, and we think we can do better. We talk mean-time-to-recovery over mean-time-between-failures, and we focus on resiliency.Working well with others is a must, so is having ideas and opinions you can advocate for. We're a group of people who like to build stable systems using understandable technologies, and we can't wait for you to join us.
