Job Description: 
Do you have a devotion to scripting and automation that verges on obsession? Do you believe that if you have to do something more than once, its time to write a script? Does it bother you at a fundamental level when someone logs into a server interactively instead of using a configuration tool? If so, we want you to be our next Cloud Automation Engineer. You will be responsible for helping our clients improve their efficiency and effectiveness using modern technologies and techniques. You will take our customers to the next level of velocity and agility by implementing and championing the principles of Continuous Delivery and Infrastructure as Code. We are looking for someone who is passionate about using cloud technology to solve business challenges and relishes in developing solutions that are truly solutions. If you believe that DevOps is a philosophy, not a title, team, or tool, then this is the role for you.
  • A passion for problem solving and learning new technologies
  • 2+ years experience with infrastructure automation tools (CFEngine, Chef, Ansible, Puppet).
  • Thorough understanding of configuration management concepts.
  • Expertise with system automation scripting (Ruby preferred).
  • Experience using Infrastructure as Code techniques and tools, such as Cucumber, serverspec, or minitest.
  • 5+ years System administration and engineering experience (Linux or Windows operating systems; experience with mixed environments a plus).
  • Well versed in Internet architectures, including web, application, and database components.
  • Solid understanding of systems monitoring, alerting and analytics.
  • Ability to name at least two great blogs, podcasts, or newsletters about DevOps, configuration automation, or cloud computing that we havent heard of yet.

  • Bonus: Experience using git, SVN, or other version control systems.
