Why we are excited about YOU:

You bring knowledge to the table which will help us augment and reinvent the processes which keep development running smoothly at CloudHealth. You look to build out new systems to fit new needs and are not skittish when it comes to improving an already-deployed system.

Furthermore, you wish to have an impact on the largest number of other engineers possible.

You Will:

  • Collaborate with the Executive Team, Product Management, Architects, and existing engineering teams to design, develop, and publish software, processes, and workflows supporting a highly available, fault-tolerant SaaS platform.

  • Maintain and actively harden infrastructure shared among multiple development teams.

  • Build out continuously deliverable application deployment workflows using Helm, Jenkins, and Kubernetes.

  • Assist development teams in becoming self-sufficient in designing microservices architectures, supported by Docker and Kubernetes.

  • Participate in service-level monitoring, metrics gathering, and an on-call rotation using Datadog and Sensu, and PagerDuty.

  • Work across the company to identify and implement new ideas and mature existing processes.

  • Actively solve problems using modern open source technologies and techniques.

  • Mentor team members

You Have:

  • Experience running production workloads in AWS

  • Three or more years of experience running Linux-based systems in a production environment or one or more years of experience running Kubernetes in a production, customer-facing environment.

  • Demonstrable experience with CI/CD tools (Jenkins preferred)

  • The ability to debug complicated issues with others in a group setting.

  • Comfort learning new tools and technologies to serve new purposes.

  • Excellent verbal and written communications skills.

Bonus Points for:

  • Big Data technologies such as Hadoop or HBase

  • Administration of technologies like MySQL, Redis, ElasticSearch or Resque

  • Monitoring and tuning a large-install containerized system using tools such as Datadog and Prometheus.

  • Log aggregation at scale using tools such as ELK or Splunk.

  • Sizing hardware and measuring the resulting performance

We're already intrigued, but would love experience with:

  • Chef

  • Consul

  • Elasticsearch

  • MySQL

  • Prometheus

  • Ruby

  • Terraform

  • Vault
