Director of DevOps

| Greater NYC Area

At White Ops, we’re all hackers. This doesn’t mean you have to hold a key to the internet (although one of our founders does!), but it does require approaching problems in unconventional ways. We are attacking criminal botnets through the ad fraud that finances their operations. Our proprietary technology detects and prevents sophisticated online fraud. By reducing the incentives for crime, we are making the internet a better place. Our mighty team of humans have several things in common:
We are hackers.
We create tau for ourselves and each other.
We think big and move fast.
We practice humility.
We “pwn it”.

We believe it is critical to our success to be able to excel at balancing speed to market and code/infrastructure stability. We are looking for a strong, hands on DevOps leader to establish and build best practices in build and QA automation. 

Who you are:

  • A strong sense of ownership which drives you to find ways to do things better, faster, and cheaper
  • Capable of finding new and innovative ways to solve complex problems through rigorous experimentation
  • Open and transparent and work in tight collaboration with the rest of White Ops

Responsibilities:

  • Manage a NY based DevOps team
  • Influence and establish best DevOps practices through solid design decisions, processes and tools
  • Provide coaching and mentorship to team
  • Manage project goals, contribute to product strategy, and develop the team

Skills:

  • Experience in establishing and delivering automation best practices for build automation and QA
  • Cloud architecture experience with a major cloud provider such as AWS or Google Cloud
  • Ability to use a wide variety of open source technologies and tools
  • Ability to code and script
  • Experience with systems and IT operations
  • Passion for frequent, incremental code testing and deployment
  • Strong grasp of automation tools
  • Data management skills
  • Understanding and focus on business outcomes
  • Understanding and efficiency in collaboration, open communication and reaching across functional borders
  • Experience with fast and scalable distributed systems in a cloud environment is a must. Examples include: Snowflake, BigQuery, Redshift, Druid, Cassandra, Parquet, Kudu, or HBase
  • Strong experience in any programming language
  • Experience working with messaging frameworks such as Kafka or Kinesis preferred

We understand it takes a diverse team of highly intelligent, passionate, curious, and creative people to solve the challenges involved in protecting the Internet. Our dynamic team of humans have incredible perspectives to share, just as we know you do, and we take great pride in being an equal opportunity workplace.

An Insider's view of White Ops

What are some social events your company does?

We regularly host guest speakers, organize monthly social gatherings, and have ad hoc happy hours weekly. Every six months, we put together a company "on-site" at one of our global office locations as a way to socialize and share knowledge. Each team also organizes their own outings, off-sites, and attends conferences frequently.

Director of Talent

What does your typical day look like?

I start my day with code reviews then have a standup with my team to go over tasks undertakings. A bit of brainstorming and pair programming with one of the developers which leads to a nice break involving lunch/snacks and/or video gaming/card games with the team and then I'll finish up tasks or carry over the remaining tasks to the following day.

What are some things you learned at the company?

Exceptional culture and mission can enable us to live meaningfully and accomplish the greatest work of our lives. If I’m spending 1/3 of my waking hours working, I want to solve complex problems and design experiences that make the world a better place with a team that inspires me to be the best version of myself. I discovered part of my ataraxia!

UX/UI Researcher & Designer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We always encourage team members to experiment with new technologies and explore their use cases in our products. We know that technology is ever changing and never stays the same. If you are not pushing forward then you are probably going backward. That's why we are creating a culture that encourages creativity and innovation
