DevOps Engineer

What You'll Do

In this multi-faceted role, the Senior Engineer, DevOps will be responsible for:

  • Ensuring that our cloud solutions are fully-operational and performing optimally for our enterprise clients.
  • Becoming an expert in the OpenStack open-source cloud platform and Metacloud's enhancements to this platform.
  • Acting as a senior team member, provide subject matter expertise in systems automation, configuration management, and infrastructure optimization.

Typical job functions would include:

  • On-going operations in a large-scale, multi-cloud environment.
  • Proactive system/network monitoring.
  • Proactive system capacity planning.
  • Deployment and task automation.
  • Issue/Incidence response.
  • Code-level analysis of issues including root cause determination and/or potential code fix.
  • Peer-level customer support for low-level, highly-technical issue resolution.
  • Participation in on-call rotation.
  • You will be required to have fun, love what you do, and support a transparent and open work environment.

Who You'll Work With

Who You Are

  • Bachelor's degree in CS... nice to have but... we'll focus on what you know right now, what you have accomplished, where you shine, and how your current and future goals mesh with ours.
  • 5-7 years of Linux administration and engineering experience including a deep understanding of the Linux networking stack at the kernel level.
  • 2-4 years Python development experience or an equal level of level of proficiency in another programming language.
  • For candidates that have experience with languages other than Python, we will ask you to:
    Provide code/script/recipe examples pertinent to infrastructure support.
  • Be happy learning Python! OpenStack's code-base is written in Python so becoming comfortable with Python is required.
  • Extensive knowledge of modern virtualization technologies (KVM knowledge is a plus).
  • Experience prior experience designing, monitoring, and supporting a large-scale, redundant, serving infrastructure (i.e., thousands of systems).
  • Having led, or participated in, the implementation of at least one configuration management solution (Chef, Puppet, Salt Stack, etc.).
  • Hands-on networking experience and a strong foundational knowledge of networking models including VLAN's, routing, bridging, etc.
  • Good communication skills and significant client support experience.
  • Strong application, operating system, kernel, and hardware debugging skills.
  • Experience with security-conscious design.
  • Prior experience working in a start-up operation is strongly desired but not required. We need people who know how to work independently and make things happen.
  • The ability to demonstrate a high degree of passion for your craft is a requirement. Our on-staff experts love what they do, are continuous learners, anxious to take on new challenges, and mindful of best practices to ensure optimal service.
