Have you ever wondered what happens inside the cloud?

Based in New York, DigitalOcean is a dynamic, high-growth technology company that serves a robust and passionate community of developers, teams, and businesses around the world. We believe that today’s entrepreneurs are changing the world through software. Our mission is to empower these entrepreneurs by bringing modern app development within reach for any developer, anywhere in the world.

We want people who are passionate about designing and operating secure systems at scale.

We are looking for someone who is familiar with our stack, understands our tools, is comfortable working remote, enjoys working in open source, and is excited about our mission. 

At DO, we believe in: Creating simple, yet powerful, foundations (with 💕) from which our community can build.

Our Team: The Systems team is currently made up of about two dozen, mostly senior, engineers located across the US, Canada, and Germany with one engineer in the NY office and is supported by a Senior Engineering Manager. The Provisioning and Tooling Automation  sub-team, supported by an Engineering Manager, accounts for approximately one-fourth of the Systems team.

What You’ll Be Doing:

While work will vary based on quarterly priorities and initiatives, some examples include:

  • Driving the technical direction / vision for fleet health monitoring and maintenance automation
  • Triaging and fixing provisioning automation issues impacting cloud operations
  • Identifying, designing and implementing solutions for cloud operations that can be automated
  • Improvements to our debian packaging and software delivery processes
  • Improvements to our monitoring, alerting, and internal team tooling
  • 5-20% of your time is spent on innovation, education, and/or open source
What We’ll Expect From You:
  • Strong technical leadership experience (preferably in provisioning and DevOps at scale)
  • Experience as a developer / engineer in a large scale, distributed environment
  • Experience writing secure, testable and robust code
  • Deep understanding of Linux and provisioning automation
  • Experience proactively addressing reliability issues across all layers of the stack 
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Industry experience using Ansible is a huge plus
Why You’ll Like Working for DigitalOcean:
  • We value development. You will work with some of the smartest and most interesting people in the industry. We are a high-performance organization that is always challenging ourselves to continuously grow. We maintain a growth mindset in everything we do and invest deeply in employee development through formalized mentorship, LinkedIn Learning tracks, and other internal programs. We also provide all employees with reimbursement for relevant conferences, training, and education.
  • We care about your physical, financial and mental well-being. We offer competitive health, dental, and vision benefits for employees and their dependents, a monthly gym reimbursement to support your physical health, and a commute or internet allowance to make your trips to your office or your desk easier. We offer generous parental leave with transition time built-in upon return to work. We offer competitive compensation and a 401k plan with up to a 4% employer match. 
  • We support our remote employee experience. While we have great office spaces in NYC, Cambridge and Palo Alto, we’re very distributed—we use a number of communication tools to connect across the company—and all remote employees have the opportunity to visit our offices and meet their teams face-to-face at team offsites. We also have an annual company offsite, Shark Week, to get quality in-person time with the entire company at least once a year. We also allow employees to outfit their workstations to meet their needs—whether remote or in office.
  • We value diversity and inclusivity. We are an equal opportunity employer and we do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
