Staff Devops Engineer
- Build systems that are easy to debug if someone is paged at 2am (and that fail gracefully enough that they almost never need to page overnight anyway).
- Contribute to a culture of excellence within the Platform pod. Set high standards for candor and mutual accountability.
- Strike a careful balance between velocity and quality.
- Define and advocate for initiatives that will improve engineering velocity and quality of life.
- Bring new features from conception to completion, contributing code across our entire stack.
- Exercise a high degree of autonomy and technical authority on a team that trusts you to do what's right for our users but is there to support you when you need it.
- Frequently ask: How does this impact our learners?
Who are you?
- You have at least 7 years of professional experience in technical roles, and at least 5 of them configuring and maintaining modern DevOps systems and tools.
- You got into programming because you’re motivated by solving users’ problems.
- You're capable of working across the stack, and you're most energized when enabling product engineering teams to move faster.
- You enjoy solving technical challenges in a way simple enough for an intern to understand and build upon. You avoid introducing complex, novel, or "clever" solutions. You write code for humans, not for computers.
- You're excited to collaborate closely with talented engineers. You enjoy solving problems as a team, pair-programming, and sharing knowledge. You want to be a mentor and to be mentored.
- You have deep experience with a few languages and frameworks, and you know what you do and do not like about them. You believe in using the right tool for the job — even when it’s an unfamiliar one, and especially when it's a boring one. You stay up-to-date with the latest technologies and patterns, recognizing the differences between a game-changer and a passing fad.
- You're excited to be our first DevOps specialist and join a small team focused on our developer platform
- You have experience helping engineering organizations modernize their developer tooling to match their growth
- You're very familiar with AWS (especially ECS and the relevant ecosystem), Docker, and Terraform
- You have a favorite product and can articulate your perspective on what makes using it delightful. You often think about how the products you use could be better.
