Do you want to work hard alongside smart and talented product managers, engineers, and designers every day? Do you excel when you are smack in the middle of a challenging project, thrive when things get complex, and yawn when everything is going according to plan? Do you actually want to like your clients and coworkers?

As a DevOps Engineer, you will be instrumental in creating and maintaining the systems that power the sites managed by Brightspot. Like traditional operations, you will develop an understanding of the systems underpinning Brightspot by working on OS-level components and utilities.
