Job Description

Are you a systems engineer that knows how to operate a web plaform, but also is able to work with web development teams to help build, test, deploy and manage their applications?  How about a web developer that has had to run your own applications and knows what it takes to build a highly performant and reliable application?  We’re looking for engineers with a foot in both worlds to help us build and run the next generation web platforms at MathWorks.

  • Work directly with architects and developers to create supportable designs and debug problems.
  • Create infrastructure and architecture designs and implementation plans and guide the implementation with the operations team.  Continually improving existing designs and finding gaps.
  • Make decisions on problem mitigations in critical down time situations when escalation is impractical.
  • Scripting (BASH, Perl, Ruby) and building required automation (Puppet/Chef) and tools on an ad-hoc basis.

About MathWorks

At MathWorks, we express who we are as an organization through our guiding principle, our mission, and our core values. Developed over time, each represents a philosophy or goal that is intrinsically important to the organization.
