About You

You love optimization and automation. Building and deploying consistently is second nature for you. You walk the line between software development and system administration.

This is a senior-level position. That means you enjoy working with people and mentoring others. Your technical skills are top-notch but you know that the social ones are just as important. You're an excellent communicator who has a knack for knowing when everyone isn't on the same page and getting them there. You can deal with stress and uncertainty, and lead the team away from them. You don't need to be told what to do, because when you see something that needs doing, you do it.

As an architect, you gather and document requirements from stakeholders to turn them into actionable battle plans. You don't make all the technology choices, but you ensure that they get made, facilitating discussion and consensus. You understand the parts of the whole, how they fit together, and how to orchestrate it so large teams can build large things in parallel.

  • Must have expertise in Jenkins CI/CD pipeline setup and configuration to support full end-to-end installation and change delivery
    background in cloud formation template design and scripting to support automation to cover pipeline/deployment, LZ builds, and FAC migration support.

  • Provisioning and deployment with tools like Ansible, Chef, Puppet, Salt
  • Background in cloud formation template design and scripting to support automation
  • Infrastructure-as-Code with tools like terraform, CloudFormation
  • Logging, monitoring, and alerts
  • Best practices for security and high availability in the cloud
