At Instructure, we believe in the power of people to grow and succeed throughout their lives. Our goal is to amplify that power by creating intuitive products that simplify learning and personal development, facilitate meaningful relationships, and inspire people to go further in their educations and careers. We do this by giving smart, creative, passionate people opportunities to create awesome products and tools.

By focusing on our values — ownership, openness, simplicity, equality, relationships, and learning — and using a modern stack that includes AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, Vault, Terraform, Ruby, and Go, we are pushing the boundaries of managing services at scale.

What will you doing:

    • Partnering with engineering teams to automate & optimize service availability, scalability, performance, monitoring, and alerting. 
    • Educating & empowering software engineers to think operationally when designing services and to operate what they build.
    • Developing software to automate the toil required to keep our SaaS offerings highly available, scalable, and resilient, while delivering quickly.
    • Building and maintaining platforms and services that are force multipliers used by internal teams.
    • Developing and maintaining methodologies of iteratively deploying Instructure’s cloud-based architecture. 
    • Building resilient and self-scaling systems so that you can sleep through the night. 
    • This is an exciting opportunity to push the boundaries of cloud automation and gain hands-on experience developing software with AWS.

    • A desire for ownership and love for problem-solving.
    • Experience managing a 24/7 SaaS with amazing uptime.
    • Experience with at least one cloud platform (Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure).
    • Programming experience in at least one modern programming language (Ruby, Python, Java, or Go).
    • Experience with containers (Docker) or container orchestration (Kubernetes, ECS, Mesos). 
    • Deep understanding of configuration management, automation, and infrastructure-as-code tools (Ansible, Terraform, or Puppet)
    • Continuous Integration (CI) / Continuous Delivery (CD) exposure (like Jenkins, git, Argo, Spinnaker, GitHub Actions, AWS CodeDeploy,  etc.)
    • Open, team-oriented, and with a broad range of skills and interests.
    • Strong communication skills both in English and Hungarian.
