Submittable is seeking a Senior DevOps Engineer to join our dynamic, growth-driven team in Missoula, Montana. This position is open to remote candidates and is an incredible opportunity for someone looking to take on a critical infrastructure role in a rapidly growing company.


The position is a full-time individual contributor role and reports to the VP of Engineering.


What You'll Do:
 

  • Make it easy for our team to ship. A good infrastructure team doesn't ship code -- it enables engineers to ship code easily and reliably. Your job will be to get us to that point. It will involve doing and teaching.
  • Manage our AWS infrastructure. We run our stack on AWS, and use many of Amazon's services including RDS, EC2, S3, SNS, SQS, Lambda, and Elastic Transcoder. You should know AWS very well, and like infrastructure as code. Ideally, you have had experience managing infrastructure for a high volume, high availability SAAS product.
  • Monitor operations. Knowing what our systems are doing and when things go wrong is a key aspect of this role. You should be comfortable with CloudWatch and other monitoring tools, and willing to teach the Engineering team how to instrument their code to improve monitoring.
  • Take the lead for our production support process and participate in our on-call rotation
  • Write, review and debug both front-end and back-end code. Ideally, you have a full stack software engineering skill set in at least one common stack.

 

About You:
 

  • Super nice. We're a warm, engaged, and supportive team and are looking forward to welcoming you.
  • Strong team player who consistently demonstrates a sense of both urgency and ownership
  • Amazing written and verbal communication skills
  • Fast learner and open to feedback
  • Detail-oriented, engineering-minded, and budget conscious
  • Bachelor's degree in CS or a STEM subject preferred
  • We are interested in every qualified candidate who is eligible to work in the United States. However, we currently do not sponsor H-1B visas.
