Fairwinds Company Overview

Many engineering teams spend a lot of time architecting, deploying and managing their infrastructure, usually at the expense of building their companies’ products and services. However, the complexity of moving to cloud-native infrastructure is daunting to many. 

Fairwinds was created to provide organizations with reliable, production-grade infrastructure and enhance their expertise with Kubernetes.  The company offers three solutions:

  • ClusterOps, a fully managed Kubernetes platform that offers 24x7 Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) support

  • ClusterOps Advisory, an advisory service to supplement your team’s expertise

  • Fairwinds Insights, subscription software providing continuous monitoring for cloud-native infrastructure and workloads

All of Fairwinds’ solutions leverage open source software and are derived from best practices informed by hundreds of production deployments.

Careers with Fairwinds

Our employees love what they do. But that isn’t the only awesome thing about being part of the Fairwinds team.

Here are a few of the major benefits…

Work remotely

Our clients are spread out across the US. So we figure there’s no point in us all being cooped up in one stuffy office. With Fairwinds, you have the chance to work remotely, giving you total flexibility. *US remote only*

Join an elite group

Expertise lies at the core of what we do. Our clients value our work because we’re the best at what we do. As part of the Fairwinds team, you’ll have the opportunity to work with (and learn from) some of the best Kubernetes Engineers in the country.

Develop yourself

Not all your time will be spent architecting. We encourage our team to spend around 20% of their working week on improving themselves, others, or their working environment. We call it “FW time”. Some of our team invest their FW time in the community, using their skills to help others.

For some businesses, the number of transactions generated in that single day can be equivalent to one month or more of sales. Yet horror stories abound. Last year, J. Crew lost an estimated $700,000 in Black Friday sales due to a website crash.Fortunately, cloud computing has enabled e-commerce businesses to meet demand through elastic compute and on-demand provisioning of infras...

Written by: EJ EtheringtonOne of the most common questions we get from clients and prospective clients is, “Will you run our database in Kubernetes”. Typically our answer is “No, and you probably shouldn’t either”, but there are certain cases where running stateful application workloads such as databases can be the right choice if you are willing to take on additional work and complexity.Where are you starting from?There are many reasons (some good, some not as good) you may wish to r...

Written by: Robert BrennanBuilding a working, reliable Kubernetes cluster is hard. Building it securely is even harder. Often the easiest way to get things working is to ignore security considerations, or even to bypass default security configurations. A typical game plan for a resource-constrained engineering team is: (1) get it working, (2) make it secure. Sadly step two is often neglected.If you’re running Kubernetes, there are a few different attack vectors you’ll want to consider. Ther...

Written By: Robert BrennanIn our How-to-Kube series, we’d like to begin by covering the pod basics. Like service, volume, and namespace, a pod is a basic Kubernetes object. A pod is the smallest execution unit, consisting of a single container or a series of related containers of an application. Along with the application’s container, a pod also contains storage resources and options for container processes.In this post, you’ll learn how to create a pod in Kubernetes using the nginx image...

Reliability is important to a software organization because it provides stability and generally a better user experience. In addition, it makes the jobs of the operators and developers that work in the organization easier.In a Kubernetes environment, reliability can be easy to obtain, but if things are con...
