We are looking for a DevOps engineer to build, manage and automate our AWS infrastructure. Our platform is evolving to a set of microservices and NoSQL+Object storage and has to scale fast (up and down) and have excellent unit economics. We have a global footprint and need to operate globally, but need to prepare for replicated infrastructure when national laws require in-country processing. Your skill in automating the creation and operation of infrastructure will be critical!

You are early enough to set the tone and tools – whether you’re a CloudFromation, Terraform, or AWS CDS devotee.

We look to develop “M-shaped people” – deep in two or three areas and able to help or cross-train colleagues. We work as an Agile team so you won’t be pigeonholed (but you’ll have time to further develop your skills.)


  • Design cloud infrastructure that is secure, scalable, and highly available on AWS
  • Work collaboratively with software engineering to define infrastructure and deployment requirements
  • Provision, configure and maintain AWS cloud infrastructure defined as code
  • Ensure configuration and compliance with configuration management tools
  • Build and maintain operational tools for deployment, monitoring, and analysis of AWS infrastructure and systems
  • Perform infrastructure cost analysis and optimization

About you

  • At least 3-5 years of experience building and maintaining AWS infrastructure (esp. VPC, Security Groups, IAM, CloudFront, S3, DynamoDB, Lambda/Serverless)
  • Strong understanding of how to secure AWS environments and meet compliance requirements
  • Hands-on experience deploying and managing infrastructure with Cloud Formation, Terraform, or AWS CDK
  • Solid foundation of networking and security
  • Experience with GitHub and deploying applications on AWS
  • Ability to learn/use a wide variety of open source technologies and tools
  • Strong bias for action and ownership.

Useful, but not required:

  • Familiarity with Hubspot, Snowflake, and Totango (current stack for usage reporting for marketing and customer support)
  • Experience with AWS XRay (or other distributed observabiity tools)

  4. That’s it! If everyone’s happy, we’ll make you an offer.
