About the Role

Does the phrase “securing the provisioning of highly available, highly scalable, automated, cloud-based production environments” roll off your tongue?

You’ll be the bedrock of our engineering experience, pushing our team to perform efficiently with the best tools available. The ideal candidate in our eyes will have a blend of DevOps and Backend experience, being heavier on the DevOps end with some experience in building and designing web applications at scale.

We take ownership of anything that involves performance, scalability, reliability, observability, availability, and security. Lastly, this team also handles trust reviews prior to the start of any project to ensure that features are built in a way that optimizes for the previously listed areas of concern.

You'll be responsible for: 

  •  Experience with AWS ECS/EKS to enable cloud dev environments
  •  Managed complex CI/CD pipelines for large scale engineering teams
  •  Manage infrastructure and own projects that enable the engineering team to maintain high velocity

  • You have experience with AWS and Docker
  • You have experience with application architecture design and development
  • You have a working knowledge of writing code and scripts in multiple languages
  • You have knowledge of best practices, operating a highly available and secure service
  • You have built and managed features in a large scale application
  • You have deep experience in creating/managing robust access roles and policies, implementing security observability tools and automations and optimizing for performance and cost, managing secrets and automated key rotations


Must Haves:

  • 4+ years experience managing and monitoring a highly available distributed application
  • Strong AWS experience managing infrastructure in a secure, highly available, automated fashion (VPC, ELB, Auto Scaling)
  • Docker and container management experience
  • Knowledge of building and managing CI/CD pipelines
  • A working understanding of a high-level programming language like Go, Python, JavaScript,  etc.
  • Strong background in Linux/Unix administration
