ActiveCampaign scores higher in customer satisfaction than any other solution in both Marketing Automation and CRM All-In-One on G2.com.
As the fastest-growing SaaS company in Chicago, we are scaling rapidly to keep up with market demand. We are growing all of our teams and looking for people who share our values, deliver innovation frequently and join us in our mission to grow our customer base from 85,000 today to millions.
We are currently seeking a talented DevOps Engineer to join us as we extend our platform and work to scale our quickly growing user base.
As a DevOps Engineer you’ll get to build the systems that power our products. We are looking for people with a strong background in continuous integration (CI), container orchestration (docker/kubernetes), and deploying/configuring systems within Amazon Web Services (AWS).

What Your Day Could Consist of:

  • Building a scalable and robust Gitlab CI platform with the goal of handling hundreds of complex/interdependent microservice builds and deployments
  • Provisioning and monitoring our Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service clusters to ensure speed and resilience
  • Building and contributing code to our custom Golang binaries (Go) with the aim of providing a platform as a service (PAAS) experience for our developers
  • Writing bash scripts and kubectl plugins to simplify the kubernetes experience with predefined workflows
  • Collaborating with developers to ensure reliable, fast, and quality builds and deployments
  • Debugging issues related to Gitlab CI or containers/pods running in Kubernetes

What You Need:

  • You like fast feedback loops and have experience building continuous integration (CI) pipelines. We are currently migrating all our applications and microservices to Gitlab from Github/CircleCI. Experience with Jenkins, CircleCI, TravisCI, or Bamboo is great as well
  • You love running production workloads in the cloud and have experience building well-architected cloud environments. We are completely hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) but are open to experience on other cloud platforms like Google Cloud Platform (GCP) or Microsoft Azure
  • A passion for containers and container orchestration. We are currently building new microservices and migrating legacy services to Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). Other experience with Docker Swarm, Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), and Apache Mesos is awesome too
  • Bonus points if you are kubernetes command line expert. You’ve worked with kubernetes and have experience with docker and kubernetes deployment tooling i.e minikube, kubectl, helm. 
  • You live that “infrastructure as code” life. Experience with provisioning and configuration management tools. We are currently using Terraform, Chef, and Salt but are open to experience with Cloudformation, Ansible, Puppet, or other similar tooling
  • Comfortable moving quickly and collaborating in a fast paced product development environment. We are building developer tooling that abstracts away complexity with simple workflows. This requires working closely with developers. We are trying to build “heroku-like” experiences for our developers. Most of our tools are written in bash or golang(go). We expect solid scripting skills but we are open to experience in other languages like python, php, or ruby
  • Sometimes unexpected things happen. You are comfortable rolling up your sleeves and looking under the hood. You have experience debugging/fixing application errors or linux system issues
  • Other bonus points include: linux tuning skills (Amazon Linux, Ubuntu, CentOS) or database tuning (we use Amazon Aurora MySQL and ProxySQL)

ActiveCampaign is an employee-first culture. We take care of our employees at work and outside of work. We'll share all the details later on but in summary: comprehensive health and wellness benefits including no premiums for employees on our HSA plan, open time off plan, generous 401(k) matching with no vesting, lunch and endless snacks/ beverages, reimbursed commuting, education budgets, ongoing learning and development, a proactive approach to diversity and inclusion, career pathing and lots of swag.
