DevOps Systems Engineer and Evangelist

DevOps Systems Engineer and Evangelist

As our Systems Engineer, you will be working alongside a team of kick ass software developers eager to increase their adoption of devops culture. The team will look to you for recommendations on instrumenting our apps to understand how they perform with all of the other pieces in the stack.

You will be responsible for the following:

  • Leading the charge on the development of templated project environments. Developing and maintaining a library of Chef code to quickly provision vagrant or ec2 environments.
  • Working with Operations staff to develop and maintain templated application stacks in the Amazon Cloud.
  • Application sandboxing and setting configuration and deployment conventions.
  • Experience maintaining Jenkins as a continuous integration server.
  • You can parse logs with sed, awk, and perl, but you also stream them through a log management and analytics platform.
  • Experience maintaining and troubleshooting production environments at scale.

You will possess the following skills and attributes:

  • Side projects. OSS scripts or tools.
  • Involvement in the community through meetups, projects, essays, etc.
  • Fun, interesting, or crazy programming or scripting languages you've played around with.
  • Art, music, games, literature, or anything that fascinates you. We love passionate people.

We don't care about:

  • Every technology you've used since you touched a keyboard (like your former life’s experience with DOA web services, IPX/SPX, Sonet/ATM networking experience, token ring, Banyan Vines, or LANtastic manager experience).
  • Verbose resumes (shorter is better).


We don't really care about your education. Anybody can get a college degree. What we care about is your ability to communicate, get stuff done, and work with a team. If you feel your education helps communicate those traits, tell us about it.
