ChannelAdvisor is looking for a Systems Engineer to join our System Operations team. You’ll be part of a team building a high performance and accessible SaaS e-commerce platform infrastructure supporting our customers. You’ll help development teams design and implement production and development environments and address system needs in new and creative ways that go beyond traditional infrastructure methods.


  • Ensure the development and use of an effective preventative maintenance program suitable to meet the operation objective of greater than 99.9% availability
  • Respond to all system problems on a 24x7 basis and take part in the on-call rotation
  • Develop and deliver creative solutions that’ll automate systems engineering functions
  • Operate and maintain critical systems, owning reliability, performance, and availability of those systems
  • Troubleshoot and solve issues with hardware, application, and network components
  • Collaborate with teams of developers on local projects as well as with teams across languages and time zones


  • 5+ years of experience building servers in the cloud and keeping online production environments humming. Experience running hefty systems in AWS, Azure or other cloud infrastructures.  
  • Performance tuning skills: you’ve managed to squeeze extra performance out of your systems with solid tuning, not just throwing money at a problem
  • Passion for and experience with automation- you never do something manually more than once; you know how to write quick scripts to manage the systems you control, whether that be a script to automate a task you tend to avoid or a script to do bulk work for thousands of customers
  • Ability to rapidly change direction when priorities shift, stay focused on the most relevant issues and can evolve and shift to meet them as needed
  • Experience with VMWare and SAN/NAS technologies, ideally high availability, high-performance storage desired.
  • Experience with Kubernetes, Docker, or other container technologies desired.
  • Experience with Windows operating systems and Active Directory administration and maintenance is a plus.
