We are looking for a remote-located DevOps Engineer to join our Silicon Valley based start-up. We are a tech company that is creating AI based software to supplement marketing and communication services.
The successful candidate will have a minimum of 3-5 years of experience in deploying, automating, maintaining, troubleshooting, and improving systems that are required to keep backend infrastructure running smoothly. This role requires you to be organized, detail oriented and capable of working well under pressure.
This will involve working in operating systems (Linux), RDBMS management (MySQL, Mongo DB), cloud platforms (Google, AWS, Twilio), web hosting services and more.
Our stack that the successful candidate will work in:
Operating Systems: Ubuntu 14-20
Scripting Skills: Python 2.7 & 3.5, Shell Scripts
Cloud Platforms: Digital Ocean, Twilio, Google Cloud (Speech, Queues, Senders),
AWS: experience using a range of AWS technologies including, EC2, RDS, Workspaces
RDBMS Management Software: MySQL, Mongo DB, Postgress
Website Management: WordPress, GoDaddy, Sendgrid, CloudFlare, Lets Encrypt, Internet.bs
PaaS Services: Docker, CapRover, HaProxy
Software: Slack, Office 365
Desired Skills (Nice to have some of these and a willingness to work on the rest):
We are looking for someone who is a self-classified Linux Guru, lives & breaths SSH and writes Bash scripting like it is their native language. Meticulous attention to detail, organization, & effective communication are vital. The successful candidate will need skills that can be scaled up as our startup grows. This would include ongoing documentation, analysis of logs, events, and failures to plan for disasters. Finally, we need a candidate who strives for efficiency…in other words, we need someone to make sure AWS doesn’t rob us blind.
Other abilities that are needed to fit with our team:
All our team members are pushing hard to achieve the same goal and we want someone with a similar drive to join us. We are looking for a team player, who easily bounces between the role of coach or student. Our prime candidate will be self-driven, responsible, takes pride of ownership and can work well under pressure. Knowing how to take a monumental task and breaking into down into manageable pieces will serve our ideal candidate well, as will planning for different outcomes (good or bad). We are looking for someone who enjoys hard work, learning and realizes that failures often come before success. As this a remote position, communication will be key.
As we are based in Silicon Valley, we expect you to be available for meetings during Pacific Time
