Website Dribbble

Founded in 2009, Dribbble is the top global community for designers and creative professionals and an inspiration destination for over a hundred million people every year. We’re empowering creatives around the world to make a living doing what they love. Our mission is to provide support at every stage of a creative’s journey; whether that’s freelancing, selling their physical and digital goods on our marketplace, or being hired by some of the world’s leading design-forward companies.

With many jobs, you have to pick between having a huge impact on the organization (small team) or having a huge impact on the world (big product), but at Dribbble – you get to do both, as part of a highly collaborative team, working on one of the world’s top 1000 websites.

At Dribbble, we serve a global community and we need a diverse team to do that successfully. Women, people of colour, members of the LGBTQ+ community, individuals with disabilities, and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply. We provide an accessible candidate experience, and if you need any accommodations or adjustments throughout the interview process and beyond, please let us know. We’re dedicated to fostering an inclusive and diverse environment for employees from all walks of life.

We’re building a fully remote team across North America (Canada & the US). We believe that creative collaboration can happen anywhere, and that working remotely shouldn’t have to mean sacrificing a sense of cohesion, community, and connection. We’ve seen that by combining thoughtful collaboration, frequent communication, and the freedom for people to be their authentic selves, you can do your best work and inspire others to do the same.

About the role:

We’re looking for an Infrastructure Engineer to lead our team of engineers who create and maintain servers, systems, and tooling that run THE go-to resources for designers and creative talent around the globe. We’re searching for someone with a passion for solving complex technical problems with elegant solutions, that thrives in a collaborative environment, welcomes feedback and exhibits strong attention to detail.

Our Tech Stack:

  • We use a variety of tools and services to power our sites and services, including AWS and Netlify hosting; Elasticsearch, Memcache, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Redis databases.
  • We leverage infrastructure-as-code tools to maintain configuration consistency and security, including Amazon CDK/CloudFormation, Chef, and Terraform.
  • A rich set of tools support our engineering and platform with immediate feedback on our efforts, like performance tracking, error reporting, event tracking, automated tests of every commit, and uptime & platform health tracking.

We’re looking for:

  • A pro with managing infrastructure at scale. Your work will power several websites and the services they depend on, so you need to know your way around AWS networking, security best practices, deployment automation, monitoring server performance and bottlenecks, database tuning, and assisting our engineers in troubleshooting performance issues.
  • Engineering management experience. You have some experience overseeing engineering recruiting and scaling engineering teams. Your desire to help your team be better and stronger is a driving factor at Dribbble.
  • Passion in developing the skills and talents of those on your team and being a player-coach. You can help promote an inspiring and inclusive environment for the team.
  • A self starter. We’re not big on micromanaging around here, so you’re comfortable managing your own time, working independently, while knowing when to ask for help.
  • A problem solver. Working at the scale that we do, we need an engineer who loves working with their team to determine smart solutions for our users.
  • A solid team mate. Whether it be in code reviews, pair programming or just chatting with your colleagues, the desire to help your team be better and stronger is a driving factor at Dribbble.


At Dribbble, you’ll join a diverse team dedicated to learning, teaching, and growing; as individuals, as a team, as a business, and as a community. As a workplace, we pride ourselves on doing right by our employees, and have a benefits package that makes being a part of the Dribbble team a dream job and something to be really proud of:

  • 100% remote: so you can work where you feel most comfortable and inspired.
  • Stay healthy: generous medical and dental for both you and your dependents.
  • Relax and unwind: with plenty of paid vacation, and paid sick time for when you need it.
  • Paid volunteer days: for you to spend giving back to non profits/organizations that are important to you.
  • Celebrate: we observe both US and Canadian holidays – and a whole week of rest in December.
  • Family leave: Paid time off for when your family grows.
  • Save up: put pre-tax savings into a 401k/RRSP – we’ll match a portion of your contributions.
  • Fitness fund: to help you feel your very best.
  • Equipment fund: so you can deck out your home office.
  • Monthly coffee budget: Grab that latte – it’s on us.
  • Learning and development: Keep growing with paid courses, books, and conferences.
  • Hang out: we get together at least once a year for some in-person face time.
  • Pro tools: MacBook Pro (or Air) and all the tools you need to do a great job.
