Today, our deployment pipeline incorporates much of the Atlassian development and continuous deployment stack, configuration management is handled by the OpsCode stack and Docker, infrastructure runs on AWS, Kubernetes and Ubuntu or CentOS, and monitoring and alerting are handled by DataDog and PagerDuty respectively. We’re looking for someone that can take ownership of this pipeline to ensure that only high quality builds get into production and contingency plans are in place in the event of a service disruption.

DevOps engineers are embedded in the development team and work closely with Architects and Developers to ensure operational concerns such as validation, deployment, monitoring are addressed at the earliest stages of development. Additionally, DevOps engineers are responsible for business continuity concerns such as fail-over, auto-scaling and disaster recovery.
