Dev/Ops Engineer and Automator of All Things

If you’re a developer that is seriously interested in infrastructure-as-code, this is the job for you.

If you’re an AWS or Linux guru that is interested in automating all the things, you’ll love this job.

We’re automating the migration and deployment of 200+ installations of a Java web application, and you’ll be responsible for writing the bits that make all of the things work.  You’ll have a chance to help build a large scale Cloud Operations infrastructure from the ground up, and to work with some incredibly smart people.

There will be some internal support that happens as a part of this job: System Administrators will escalate stuff to you, and you’ll be expected to advise them and other internal folks.  You’ll also take part in an on-call rotation, during which time responsibility for keeping things running will be yours.  That said, a big part of your job will be to build things in such a way that if they break, they fix themselves so that we don’t get calls at 3am.  We’re not fans of getting up in the middle of the night, and we’ll go to great lengths to avoid doing so.

We have to maintain an ISO 27001 certification, and we care about good security practices for their own sake, so you’ll be responsible for implementing security policy as a part of your code.

Skills & Requirements

You don’t need any specific set of credentials, a particular degree, or 10 years of experience for this job.  If you have all of these things, that’s great.  If not, that’s cool too.  We’ll give you some tests (interesting ones, seriously, they aren’t that bad) that’ll tell us if you’ve got the skills to do the job. We do expect that you’ve had a good bit of actual real-world Dev/Ops experience supporting web applications in an enterprise or two, and that you’re interested in being seriously excellent.

Experience with specific technologies isn’t as important as your overall domain knowledge. You should be capable of automating almost anything under the sun.  Strong coding skills (never mind what language you use) and good software design sensibilities are a must

We use the following stack.  If you’re experienced with all of these things, that’s great. We aren’t looking for a specific skillset so much as a person with deep domain knowledge who can thrive in our peculiar and most excellent culture.

Ansible, Terraform, Consul, Vault, Jenkins
Python, Bash, Java
Tomcat, Apache
Ubuntu Linux, Windows Server
MySQL, Microsoft SQL
ELK (The Elasticstack)

If you’re interested, please don’t just send us a resume.  Seriously.  We often don’t even read them.

Instead, please tell us why you care about this job.  Why you want to work here. Why you think you’re a good fit.  Make it as short or as long as necessary.  If we like what you say, then we’ll set up a time to talk and see if this is the place for you.

We’re looking forward to meeting you.

You want to work here. Trust us.
