Remote (USA only), Remote (USA only), United States

We are looking for a US-based DevOps engineer with strong AWS experience. Our stack lives on AWS and runs on Docker containers; it includes a multi-terabyte Aurora Postgres database, two AWS Batch stacks that process tens of thousands of jobs daily, and an assortment of EC2s and associated infrastructure to support several SaaS applications.

You will own our AWS infrastructure: maintain and optimize our existing systems, choose and implement new tools and technologies, and write tools and integrations to make the engineering team more efficient. We are a small team, and you should be a generalist. You will be responsible for improving monitoring and observability with Datadog, keeping our CircleCI builds flowing, and maintaining and scaling our Elasticsearch instances. You should also expect to respond to security reviews, implement least privilege access controls, and work with the engineering team to implement security best practices.

Candidates must currently reside in the United States and have the legal right to work in the United States.

You should be self-directed, responsible, and committed to building efficient, well-documented, and secure systems. You should be comfortable analyzing product requirements to produce technical specifications that go beyond coding to cover testing, monitoring, and future maintainability. We need a problem solver who can ask good questions and collaborate effectively with teammates.

  • Do you have at least 5 years of experience working with AWS and relational databases?
  • Have you demonstrated English writing skills in artifacts such as run books, technical specifications, or similar?
  • Can you effectively balance building systems for the long term and getting new features out quickly?
  • Do you enjoy diving deep into complex systems to understand how they work and make them better?
  • Have you applied infrastructure as code principles to an existing system?
  • Do you want to truly own the systems you work on?
  • Do you enjoy working in an all-remote environment?
  • Are you comfortable writing clean, maintainable Python code?
  • Are you interested in working on a wide variety of backend tasks, in both feature development and DevOps areas?
