Why We’re Hiring
We’re looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer with experience working in agile development teams. You will be responsible for service delivery, reliability, scalability, monitoring, and helping define all of this as  infrastructure-as-code. We are looking for someone who can create and maintain infrastructure by writing good code, not pushing buttons. And no, you will not be managing deploys, maintaining and supporting apps you didn’t write or get called every time there is an issue with the system. You will be providing tools for engineers to do all that.

Our technology stack is built in Go, React, and React Native, running on MySQL, Redis and Algolia. We containerize and deploy with ECS on AWS. We are looking for someone who possess a strong desire to implement change, growth, and maturity, and have a passion and love for what they do. This role comes with the opportunity to be a high performer within a department that’s fast-paced, dynamic, and quickly growing in all areas.
