RESPONSIBILITIES: You are responsible for delivering an end-to-end solution from initial concept through finished solution in the area of automated build, deployment, monitoring, server, and cloud infrastructure. You’ll need the ability to quickly understand requirements, from a user perspective, and move from there to a working prototype that captures the essence of what the product should be. The ability to not only code and configure tools, but also assemble and integrate technology across disparate platforms is critical to success. This includes a deep understanding of systems, data structures, modern scripting and enterprise level languages as well as open source tools that can and should be leveraged to solve problems. A firm handle on cloud technologies is mandatory for this role as you are responsible for identifying and moving servers, services, and data to the cloud where it makes sense. This will involve implementing an automated provisioning and testing framework as well as defining new and redefining existing SDLC processes to better leverage the framework. You’ll work in a rapid environment where there aren’t always clear specifications or rules about how something should be done, where it’s up to you to figure things out and keep things moving.

Some other things you’ll do regularly include:

Write code, integrate systems and build configurations to drive and innovate around our server- and cloud-based platform across the company organization. Work closely with the Development and Architecture teams to define and implement an SDLC complementary to the growing cloud presence of the organization Leverage open technology such as Docker, Bamboo, Bash, Javascript, Python, Git, Jenkins, Linux, Java, PostgreSQL, MySQL, and plenty of others Integrate systems using a wide variety of protocols like REST, SOAP, TCP/IP, JSON and others Exhibit a deep understanding of server virtualization, networking and storage ensuring that the solution scales and performs with high availability and uptime Identify opportunities to deliver self service capability for the most common infrastructure and application management tasks Create automated tests that easily plug into our automated code pipeline Provide deep and detailed levels of monitoring across all levels of the application Help mentor other engineers and technical analysts CULTURAL FIT: A collaborative communicator (cross-team communication and collaboration attitude are essential for a DevOps engineer) Start-up mentality; having a history of success on collaborative, fast- paced teams that continuously deploy code; thinking outside the box and come up with innovative solutions. Customer service oriented: the DevOps engineer cares and can drill down into a conversation with the developer or customer in order to solve problems. Open to feedback and constructive criticism.
