DevOps Engineer - Filled Feb 2019


About the Job

In today’s world, the roles of DevOps and Software Engineer have been highly intertwined.  At BeenVerified, we believe all engineers need to be trained and proficient in DevOps just as all DevOps need to be trained as software engineers. In that way, the interplay between the two roles becomes more of team sport with comradery rather than a source of tension. DevOps Engineers should strive to build highly scalable, fault tolerant infrastructures that our software engineers depend on to release their applications.

We believe in automation and tools to do the boring mundane work for us while we put our minds to more useful, fun and challenging tasks. Not all problems should be solved with programs however. You will choose between writing new software and scripts and using existing and tested frameworks. You’ll pick the most appropriate technology for the problem you’re trying to solve. You’ll collaborate with developers on the best ways to make their applications highly available, fault tolerant, fast and secure. You’ll be a part of the planning and scoping of projects from idea to execution and help the team ensure that they are performing with the standards we set. You’ll help implement the appropriate monitoring tools to analyze infrastructure, application performance, business goals and ensure everything is working as expected.

What You’d Get To Do

  • Help provision, build and maintain a high availability infrastructure to support multiple applications and services
  • Help analyze, troubleshoot, and allocate network resources
  • Collaborate with developers in architecting distributed solutions
  • Collaborate with developers in debugging network and infrastructure issues
  • Automate monitoring and alerts for system integrity, health, and security
  • Design, implement and maintain disaster recovery solutions
  • Use automation and scripting whenever possible
  • Help load test and determine the necessary provisioning of new and existing apps

What You Bring Us

  • Experience or familiarity with Docker and Kubernetes
  • Experience working in complex distributed systems
  • Experience dealing with high volumes of traffic both consistent and in spikes
