Who We Need
In 2016, Forbes offered a great description of this role, “A great DevOps engineer is a company changer. They ensure the system is running smoothly and being monitored, and they can respond to issues as they arise. The DevOps engineer ensures that your developers are never doing repetitive tasks, and that the infrastructure is kept up to date as the stack evolves. As processes change and the company grows, the DevOps engineer automates as much as possible to accelerate work. Because of DevOps, developers can focus on their core work so you can deliver products earlier and more reliably.”
We are looking for a dev ops engineer with a few years experience under their belt who can help us improve our existing systems and ensure that we have a solid foundation in place for the growth we expect in the coming years.
All of our production environments are hosted by AWS, and are configured for high availability, all critical services are distributed across multiple availability zones. We use Jenkins, Chef, Cloudformation and Github to achieve this.
We are looking to grow the team and need someone who can help us move faster and not break things. Ideally you have a few years experience under your belt in either a systems engineering or Dev Ops role. You are comfortable coding in Ruby and are comfortable operating AWS via the commandline/API. You like hard challenges and are not phased when asked to move outside your comfort zone.
You are comfortable working in collaborative, cross-functional and self-managing teams of extremely capable developers, where your judgement, opinion and insights will be required to ensure continuous improvement is possible.
Working hours are fairly flexible, but we have a daily standup at 10am that is set in stone. We are looking for a full time, permanent staff member.
