Contentful provides content infrastructure for digital teams to power websites, apps, and devices. Unlike a CMS, Contentful was built to integrate with the modern software stack. It offers a central hub for structured content, powerful management and delivery APIs, and a customizable web app that enables developers and content creators to ship their products faster. Companies like Spotify, Red Bull, Optimizely, Twilio, and Urban Outfitters rely on Contentful to solve the complexities of content management in the modern multi-channel world.
The demand for a new way to manage content is in the numbers: the company is rapidly growing and has raised nearly $50M from VC firms including General Catalyst, Benchmark, Balderton, Point Nine, and Trinity.
We're a fun team of over 200 people from 44 nations with offices in Berlin and San Francisco, looking for more amazing individuals to join our team!
ABOUT THE TEAM
Contentful’s customers run a wide range of deployments that consume our API. Our microservice architecture needs to be highly available and provide consistent performance, with the challenge of customers generating diverse sets of workloads depending on their own data structure and usage patterns.
The goal of the Infrastructure Reliability team is to provide High Availability, while respecting SLAs for performance and uptime, in a context of high volume traffic and sustained growth.
We manage a deep modern stack starting from real time CDN integrations at the outer level to internal layers of HTTP traffic, routing and caching, and several services that all together compose our public APIs.
We deploy our infrastructure on the AWS cloud and we also use other several CDN and infrastructure services provider for global real-time content distribution.
