Job Description:

As a Senior Devops Engineer you will have key responsibilities leading the development and ongoing maintenance of a continuous delivery pipeline.  You will also provide consulting engagements to application development teams and serve as a conduit to ensure that best practices in the areas of security, scalability, and continuous delivery are met across organizations.
• Develop and improve the tools and technologies that make up a secure continuous delivery software development pipeline.
• Support key pieces of DevOps infrastructure and maintain a high level of availability.
• Consult directly with application teams to help them achieve success - specifically in areas of continuous build and test, deployment, or security.
• Scale systems in a sustainable fashion through mechanisms like automation, and evolve systems by pushing for changes that improve reliability and velocity.  Constantly be on the lookout for new tools/technologies that could improve the software release process.
• Mentoring and teaching other developers and helping to create a continued education plan.
• Advanced troubleshooting skills across network, application, caching, queuing, load-balancing, storage and distributed services layers.
• Experience with Docker containers and orchestration (preferably Kubernetes)
• Strong base for software architecture and design including inter-process communications, asynchronous processing, micro-services, message queuing, interfaces, and API development.
And at least one of the below:
• 3yrs Linux system administration experience, including troubleshooting, support, mentor-ship / training, and oversight.
• 2yrs with networking and network/system security, including firewalls, VPN, routing, switching, load balancers, monitoring, security and DNS.
• 2yrs experience working with large scale online systems built on AWS or similar cloud providers .

Preferred Qualifications
• Strong understanding of security concepts - best practices and application -- SSH, public key encryption, access credentials and certificates, TLS, data encryption in motion and at rest.
• Desire to make aspects of security fit into the model of code analysis and testing.
• Experience with design and administration of container orchestration systems, specifically Kubernetes.
You'd be a great fit if...
• You're excited to be part of a core group that defines standards for thousands of developers.
• You are passionate about baking security in from the start, as opposed to tacking it on at the end.
• You enjoy figuring out how to make implementing and meeting those standards easy for the developers.
• You're motivated by both open-ended challenges and practical it-just-needs-to-get-done code: whatever has the most impact.
• You're eager to learn from your teammates and have something to teach them as well.
• You may have a particular area of expertise but think of yourself as a generalist who likes to challenge yourself in new areas (and wants to work with a team that encourages you to do so).
