Working alongside our Head of Engineering, the Senior DevOps Engineer will be charged with taking ownership over our entire stack then growing and leading a team of DevOps engineers. You will be our first DevOps hire so you’ll be contributing at the start and growing a team beneath you as needs require. You will have a lot of freedom and flexibility to grow the systems architecture in the way you most see fit.

What You’ll Do

  • Master our existing infrastructure, but question everything and offer suggestions on how we can improve
  • Settle on and deploy a monitoring solution to alert us when things go awry. (Don’t worry, since we’re in the business of flexible office space, most problems occur during business hours)
  • Improve our infrastructure setup and deployment strategies to move us more toward rapid scale and CI/CD
  • Build out a DevOps team under you and lead them, acting as a mentor and helping with their career growth
  • Help us move from traditional deployment on servers to a more automated and scalable process likely with Swarm or Kubernetes or some other container-based orchestration. Offer your expertise to help identify then move to a solution.

Current Tech Stack:

Node.js, React, React Native (both iOS and Android), Fabric, Postgres, MongoDB, Snowflake, Looker, Ansible, Docker, Datadog, Vault, and everything we host ourselves is running on AWS

Who You Are

You're an experienced DevOps Engineer or SRE who has experience leading a team. You enjoy staying up to date on the state of the art of the ops world and lean on statistics and empirical evidence to help validate that one strategy or tech is better than another. You love automating all of the things and have worked with Docker, deployed a continuous integration solution, and are able to teach yourself anything you don't already know in order to do your job.

You also have the following:

  • Experience working with AWS, infrastructure code platforms like Terraform or CloudFormation and some configuration management software like Ansible, Chef, or Puppet.
  • Experience in a fast-paced, high growth environment highly preferred
  • Expertise in automated deployment and CI for mobile apps on iOS or Android.
  • Capable of scripting with the language of your choice, know your way around Linux, and have a real passion for building a scalable infrastructure.
  • Experience deploying a solution with Docker, Swarm, Kubernetes, or other container orchestration platforms and enjoy building tools to help increase engineer productivity.

An Insider's view of Knotel

What are some social events your company does?

Knotel encourages its employees to socialize during the workday, but also provides fun events and opportunities outside of work for everyone to enjoy. We love hosting themed happy hours, and there's always a Knotel intramural sport you can join. Right now we're preparing for our summer retreat at a local summer camp–hilarious photos to come!

What projects are you most excited about?

Where do I start? Knotel has many incredible teams working on projects from increasing the agility and modularity of our spaces to improving the quality and diversity of our product line to meet the needs of our growing roster of corporate customers. My favorite thing about Knotel is that every employee has ownership of projects big and small.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Knotel's rapid expansion has provided me with a very dynamic work environment. Over the last year, new projects and new roles have created pathways to grow within the company. I'm constantly challenged to own my role as it evolves, and I'm encouraged to build new skills. This has and will continue to be invaluable to my career as a Project Manager.

The Workshops team has the unique opportunity to explore how to make the Knotel membership more valuable through new ventures and products. In partnership with the expertise within each vertical of the company, we are able to test, learn, launch and scale new ventures and products that build on the Knotel core offering.

Roshni

Manager, Workshops

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I really love my work and I enjoy being with my team, so work doesn’t feel like work. However, no matter how much I love producing results, my family comes first. Knotel has been incredibly accepting of my wonky schedule so that I can get quality time with my family. So my work and life are perfectly balanced here.
