Do you want to see what is like to work with growing, ambitious and free-spirited team, and to work on real-life problems? Then we might have the perfect internship for you! As Solar Monkey grows, we face several infrastructural challenges, we have some cool research topics, and you might work on one of them!
Make Solar Monkey stack auto scale with the workload
At Solar Monkey the web services run with different workloads. Some services are memory hungry, and others can be CPU-intensive or I/O intensive. The workloads often have their peak times and quiet times. We want to make use of the autoscaling features cloud providers offer to make our server fleet changes according to the demand. This will solve the scalability issues when we're suddenly under capacity and save us costs during quiet periods.
Make certain workers serverless for the stack
In our stack we have asynchronous works performing various tasks in the background. Some of the tasks can be CPU-intensive and while executing, requires much more resources than other tasks. However these tasks do not run constantly, which makes maintaining a cluster just for the workload wasteful. We want to see if there are ways to move such workloads to a serverless architecture, so that it will provide us with a scalable pool of resources without us maintaining the infrastructure.
Increase the observability of (parts of) our stack
We have central logging (ElasticSearch, now moving to GCP Stackdriver) and we have metrics (in Prometheus, and we combine them in Grafana). However, a lot of times you still don't have the big picture of what is going (wr)on(g). We would like to set up an observability pipeline, starting with more structure logging and emitting events and traces. Perhaps try out Honeycomb.io. Let's research!
Please take the effort to apply on this vacancy. We’ll get back to you, promised! Degrees tell us less than code, so don’t forget to link to your social coding profile, tell us who you are, what you like to do and what gets you out of bed each morning. Then we can start talking about the possibilities as soon as possible!
