At HotelTonight, we take enormous pride in the product experiences we deliver to both customers and hotel partners. We build amazing products by questioning the standard way of doing things. We are looking for a proven DevOps engineer who wants to help us build out our dream infrastructure.
WHAT YOU'LL DO
Design and build a new stack on AWS using Chef (greenfield project!)
Be our first line of defense (on-call rotation) for infrastructure issues (IMPORTANT NOTE: Devs take responsibility for app issues to share responsibility and are also on-call)
Help make critical architecture decisions, as well as, scale our systems to serve more people in more places
WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR IN YOU
A person that embraces infrastructure as code and values automation, repeatability, and testability
A mature (able to make decisions and communicate effectively under pressure and in other tough situations), experienced, pragmatic engineer that loves solving hard problems
Strong operations experience with multiple apps/systems at a reasonably large scale, as well as, extensive experience automating things within that environment
Real world production experience with our technology stack (namely Ruby, AWS, MySQL, asynchronous processing such as Resque, Redis, and ideally Chef)
WHAT YOU’LL GET IN RETURN
The opportunity to design and build our dream stack and to give as much of that back to other people as possible via open source
Collaboration with an amazing team of designers and developers (among many other people)
The opportunity to play a prominent role in helping HotelTonight to grow and make the experience of booking a hotel room on a mobile device at the last minute better for millions of customers and hoteliers located all over the globe
Great SF office location at 5th and Market (if you don’t live in SF but have the legal right to work for any employer in the US, we’ll move you here)
Excellent health, dental, vision and 401K plans. Generous compensation and stock options too!
Sweet perks — Annual travel stipend, your choice of equipment and a giant monitor, catered lunches and breakfast a few times a week, unlimited coffee and snacks, a partially subsidized gym membership at Sports Club/LA, access to our very own hotel-inspired full bar, and a gong that you’ll get to bang when you ship something amazing.
