You will work with a DevOps organized team to create and improve our SaaS platforms and enhance our current customer’s experience with various partners. We are implementing and refining practices that enable the continuous delivery of valuable software to our customers. This includes frameworks that automate deployment and management.

You must bring something to the table technically. You are a professional. You seek the elegant solution. You strive for excellence over good enough. You innovate to solve common problems. You enjoy the nuts and bolts of the platform systems run on and learning new technologies. We work as a team, so your opinion will matter and you can help shape the direction of the platform and the group.

Things we know and tools we use:
  • CentOS, Windows Server 08, 08R2, 2012
  • IIS, MSSQL 2005/2008/2012, SCOM, Groundworks
  • VMware, SAN technology, Load Balancers, Firewalls, Switches
  • Jenkins, Chef, Powershell, (Automation rather than manual processes)
  • Agile software development (particularly Scrum)
  • Software development cycles, Web standards and usability
Traits that will make you successful:
  • Bachelors Degree in related field or equivalent experience
  • At least 5 years experience in system administration and engineering
  • Proven experience in highly complex environments
  • An attitude that any problem can be tackled
  • Self-motivated and accountable for your work
  • Champion team success over individual accomplishment
  • Passionate about learning and continuous improvement
