We're looking for a forward-thinking, technically deep DevOps Engineer to help us build and maintain our fast-growing cloud-based infrastructure. If you relish the prospect of replacing long checklists with short scripts, and have passionate opinions about things like cross-region AWS failover support, this might be the job for you.
Our platform is heavily cloud-based with supporting datacenter systems. Our clustered server architecture is built to scale on demand, and we handle millions of job-executions, transactions and log messages per day. We rely on our ops team to make key design recommendations and to support a complex environment.
If this sounds like you, holler! Our company culture promotes individual contribution, innovation, and the belief that work should also be fun. We offer competitive compensation, a casual office environment, and respect for individual creative autonomy. We're looking for people who have interests outside of work as well, so please mention some of these when you apply.
Playing a key role in the specification, design and implementation of our cloud platform
Working independently on projects while interacting with our product and dev teams
Understanding the big picture of how our systems work together, identifying points of friction and finding creative, effective solutions
Taking direct responsibility for the reliability of our environment, including participating in a call rotation
Contributing to reviews to improve our dev/ops team practices
Doing hands-on coding/debugging of scripts, systems configuration, etc.
Actively researching and recommending new technologies
Proven ability to work in Linux environments
Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal; comfortable presenting ideas
Excellent at teamwork and coordinating with team members both inside ops and beyond
Broad technical knowledge of systems, storage, and networking
Expertise in at least one programming or scripting language (Python preferred)
Experience managing clustered, virtualized environments (bonus points for EC2)
Past startup or late-startup experience
A sense of humor
