Posted on: January 16, 2022

Job Description:

We are seeking an experienced Senior DevOps Engineer to lead the design and development of automated solutions to deploy the next generation of leadPops products in our cloud infrastructure.

We are growing fast and moving into an enterprise environment and how we deploy our products in a continuous integration, continuous delivery/deployment (CI/CD) approach is vital for us to properly scale and support our large customer base. Over the next 6 months, our system will undergo a drastic transformation from a monolithic application to a microservices-based architecture.

In this role, you will be deploying containerized microservice applications as well as complete clustered networked environments in our infrastructure powered by leading cloud providers. You will implement and champion CI/CD best practices to support rapid development and deployment into highly scalable, secure, and available data centers.

Automation will play a key part in the solutions you develop as you leverage your knowledge and skills in operating systems, networking, security, and software development.

The ideal candidate is a problem-solver, team-player, and eager to learn (and teach) the team new skills. Seeking an individual that's interested to work on challenging projects, acting as a leader in the DevOps space. A great attitude is a must.

Ongoing training is provided, and you will be reporting directly to your team leaders in the US (San Diego, CA). Youll need to be able to work 40+ hours per week at the office or remote.

If this sounds like the right fit for you and your skillset, please inquire for a 1:1 interview with our team.

We will be checking 2-3 references, and giving interested candidates 1-2 'tests' to verify skills and experience. We look forward to hearing from you!
