Who We Are:

At DataCamp, we’re not just a platform; we’re the catalyst for a data-fluent world. We enable individuals and businesses to leap forward in data science, providing them with top-tier education, certification, and collaboration tools.

By the Numbers:

  • 400+ dynamic courses
  • 270+ renowned instructors from 35 Countries
  • 90+ hands-on projects
  • 12 million+ global learners

We’re proud to be backed by Spectrum Equity, Accomplice, and Arthur Ventures, aiming to hit $100M ARR in the upcoming years. While our roots are in New York City, our presence spans London to Leuven, with a vibrant team of 200+ members working both on-site and remotely.

About the role

DataCamp’s infrastructure team, which is part of the Platform Engineering department, is a T-shaped cross functional team that looks after CI/CD pipelines, cloud infrastructure (deployed on AWS), logging, monitoring and security. The infrastructure team also looks after the data platform (deployed on GCP) as we have data engineers embedded in our cross functional infrastructure team. The team helps advise our production engineering teams on infrastructure best practices on all DataCamp projects and looks after the whole DataCamp Platform to ensure commercial availability for our customers.

To facilitate this we have a highly automated CI/CD pipeline based on CircleCI and Spotify Backstage (internal engineering portal) which allows developers to ship what they build, increasing deployment speed and ownership and visibility. The infrastructure team aims to enhance developer productivity, scalability, availability and security by providing feedback cycles for teams so they follow a model of continuous improvement. 

It will be your role as a part of the Infrastructure team to enable the development teams to deploy their applications as seamlessly as possible and also advise them on either new content for DataCamp courses or any new projects that require infrastructure expertise. You will be managing company wide shared resources which support our microservice architecture, and building upon internal services. The team has a strong bias towards providing self-serve and automation for deployment/infrastructure provisioning as well as cost control and ensuring security standards. The infrastructure team aims to support other teams using these services rather than being a central bottleneck in the company. You will play a key part in planning future improvements and owning your day to day work.

All DataCamp Platform workloads are deployed on EKS (Kubernetes) and our Istio service mesh by the self-service deployment pipelines. All infrastructure is provisioned using Terraform. The infrastructure team also manages the Kong API Gateway allowing external ingress traffic into the DataCamp Platform. The DataCamp Data Platform is deployed on Big Query and airflow manages our data pipeline jobs.

As well as providing means for other development teams to deploy their applications as seamlessly as possible, the infrastructure team takes ownership of the our learn multiplexer product that schedules course sessions for learners on the DataCamp platform.
