Anaplan Principal Infrastructure Engineer in San Francisco, California

Here at Anaplan, we have reinvented how companies see, plan, and run their businesses. Our platform allows our customers to uncover new insights, connect their strategy to their plans, and work in ways they had not previously thought possible. We’re growing fast, constantly innovating, and couldn’t be prouder to help our customers move forward with confidence in a sophisticated and changing world.

We are looking for forward-thinking people who bend over backward to put customers first. Individuals who thrive on challenge and are ready to grasp the opportunity of a lifetime. Because we fundamentally believe every colleague brings unique value to our whole. We are a workplace where each person feels seen, heard, and valued, and can contribute their unique talent to our collective effort. We believe that for ourselves and for our customers.

What you’ll be doing

Our principal infrastructure engineers are responsible for our on-premise Kubernetes platform. In this role, you will build automation, connect with technical teams from across our organization, and help us maintain the availability of our system and help to improve its performance. You’ll also be:

  • Plan and implement changes to our production platform

  • Work together on team projects to improve our automation

  • Contribute to our standards and promote incremental improvements

  • Provide support and operations experience to development teams

  • Troubleshoot and resolve incidents, and root-cause analysis

  • Work on scripting and tools to improve automation and reliability

  • Work with the other infrastructure teams to enhance our platform

  • Coaching teammates on best practices

  • Creating design documents and diagrams that meet product requirements

  • Present design documents for review

  • Create implementation roadmaps based on design documents

  • Participating in cross-team design meetings

About you

This role is an excellent opportunity to join a team of experienced engineers working on an important part of our platform. You’ll be able to put your skills to good use running a production system. You’ll be connecting with engineers with a wide range of skills and experiences.

We have specific technologies that we use, but we understand that growing into this role needs time to learn our tools and learn how we work. We believe that everyone has something to offer, and each of us bring our own unique set of skills and experiences that make us who we are. We are looking for somebody with these skills:

  • Several years of experience with Kubernetes

  • Experience using cloud platforms such as GCP and AWS

  • Experience of Linux system administration

  • Involved in operating a production platform

  • Being comfortable solving automation problems in a scripting language

Other skills that would be helpful

  • Knowledge of Elastifile, Terraform, Vault, and Rundeck

  • Familiarity with configuration management tools

  • Knowledge of network protocols such as HTTPs

  • Experience working in data centers.

To us, a principal infrastructure engineer is someone with many years of experience in equivalent roles, but not all years are equal, and not all roles are the same, so we are happy to consider people with different histories.

Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Build your job in a place that thrives on diversity, inclusion, and belonging. We believe in maintaining a hiring and working experience in which all people are respected and valued, regardless of gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, neurodiversity, disability status, citizenship, or any other aspect which makes people unique. We hire you for who you are, and we want you to bring your true self to work every day!


Protecting the health and safety of our communities, including our employees and of those considering a career at Anaplan, is our highest priority. We continue to closely monitor the evolving situation and we appreciate your understanding and flexibility with any related changes to our interviewing process.
