The Role

The infrastructure is at the heart of everything at Pilot. From a simple code checkin to CI to deployments to customers and back, infrastructure team influences every portion of the product lifecycle. We are looking for a software engineer to join our developer infrastructure team supporting frontend infra. Over the next year, as we expand both our customer and employee base, the dev infra team will invest in the developer productivity and frontend systems to enable full stack product development.
