Software Engineer, DevOps

| Austin
In this role, you’ll deliver and monitor state-of-the-art cloud applications hosted in AWS.
As a member of our Platform Delivery team, you’ll have the opportunity to contribute to a high-profile group that plays a critical role in the organization. This team works cross-functionally across engineering departments to ensure the timely release of multiple products.
We strive to maintain a DevOps culture (empowering development, infrastructure as code, etc.) for a growing set of micro-service based SaaS products. We also support an ownership culture and have developers on-call for their services. We find this helps prevent the traditional "worked in Dev, Ops problem now" mentality.

Create and contribute to open source tooling such as awsaml, tokend, or propsd to ship software better and faster
Collaborate with other teams to deliver software running on AWS
Monitor stability and performance of our cloud platform
Guide engineering staff on best practices 
Provide documentation and training for tooling 
Who are you?
Collaborates well in a team environment
Systematic problem-solving approach
Likes to automate things (we mostly use Chef)
Wants to make life easier for our development teams
Some coding experience (Python, Ruby, JS, etc) 
Experience training and mentoring across teams 
Desire to constantly expand technology skill set
What does our Software Stack look like?
A lot of our open source tools are written in Ruby and Javascript
Our development teams mostly use Java
We manage our SaaS infrastructure on AWS using Terraform
We use Spinnaker to deploy apps to EC2, but someday soon Kubernetes
We use a wide variety of storage backends, such as Redis, MySQL, PostgreSQL & Cassandra
We use Jenkins to build everything, creating jobs via the Jobs DSL to codify the entire process
