We rely on our Operations Engineering team to build tools in key areas such as server provisioning, continuous integration/deployment, monitoring, and container orchestration. We’re looking for a Senior Operations Engineer to join IX and help us continue to refine and bolster our Ops tool set and DevOps approach. While Ops is a defined team, we very much believe that DevOps is a way of thinking and we are looking for candidates who can seamlessly work with other Engineering teams to bring complex and challenging projects to fruition.

In a Senior role like this, experience in high-availability production systems is an absolute asset - when things do go awry, you understand the criticality of these issues and can operate under pressure and strict deadlines to provide a fix. We’ve gathered exceptional talent on this team and your ability to offer both guidance and technical expertise to enable the development of fellow team members is a huge plus.

Here’s what we want:

Technical: A strong foundation in development operations and experience in what it’s like to solve complex problems and build solutions for things like CI/CD, real-time monitoring, production issues, etc.

Communication: It’s absolutely essential that you can relay information and ideas effectively both within and across different teams. While we place a huge premium on technical skill, we vet just as hard on your ability to work with other people

Adaptable: We need someone who has been involved in a 24/7 operation. You will rotate on-call and be responsible for ensuring a swift response to any and all production system problems at all hours.

Here’s what you’ll be doing:

  • Utilize your understanding of DevOps methodologies and design patterns to positively impact the development, deployment, and introspection processes
  • Seize upon your experience and knowledge to help guide and mentor other team members
  • Use scripting tools like Python, Bash, and Perl to create automation tools
  • Build on your basic Ops tool kit including tech like Ansible, GitLab, Jenkins, Vagrant, Docker, Kafka, Elasticsearch, InfluxDB, and Grafana
  • Working with Big Data tools including Hadoop, HDFS, and HBase

Why you’ll love working here:

  • Lunch catered in daily
  • Flexible hours and relaxed dress code
  • Annual celebrations (Summer BBQ, Holiday Party, All Hands, Hack Days) and milestone outings
