The Role

We are hiring a Senior DevOps Engineer: someone who is passionate about infrastructure-as-code, accelerating development and deployment processes, increasing reliability, and scaling our platform as our company grows.

The key skills we’re looking for are oriented around deploying and maintaining complex service architectures with the Google Cloud Platform – particularly Kubernetes (GKE). We also rely on some AWS services, notably RDS and Route53.

The ideal candidate has 5+ years of experience in DevOps, including familiarity with Terraform (or other infrastructure-as-code tools), NGINX, Helm, and Jenkins. We handle PII, so familiarity with pragmatic data protection and network security practices is important. Bonus points if you enjoy building playbooks and teaching others.

This is an on-call position, and will occasionally require you to work outside of normal business hours. We are committed to working with you to keep a healthy and balanced schedule.

Our team is 100% remote, however, we prefer candidates in the same time zones as the greater United States (UTC-10 to UTC-4). English is our business language, and fluency is required.

Personal Attributes

    • Strong interpersonal communication skills: we work collaboratively to solve problems, and value team success over individual achievement. We love working with people who can ask hard questions, offer unusual solutions, and are willing to compromise when solving challenging problems on a deadline.
    • Comfortable working remotely: we are 100% remote, and rely on Slack, email, Signal, and Zoom to stay connected.
    • Well organized and self-motivated: we work in a fast-paced environment, our teams are growing, and our priorities shift on a quarterly basis as we move into new markets.
    • Advocate for self care while managing a high workload: we want you to show up as your best self, and to speak up for what you need to stay healthy and engaged.
