Platform (DevOps) Engineer

Vail Systems, Inc. Company Profile


The human voice is capable of conveying nuances and meaning that just can't be expressed through clicks and text messages and for that reason, voice interactions have always had a special power to shape our perceptions and experiences. At Vail, we believe in the unique power of voice interactions to create more expressive, more intimate, and more efficient interpersonal interactions. Our experts work with Fortune 500 companies to help them serve their customers more efficiently and effectively through the use of various voice technologies. From basic network services to state-of-the-art IP telephony, to cutting edge real-time analytics, Vail technology makes millions of voice interactions better every day.

Platform (DevOps) Engineer


It's official. "Cloud" is the buzzword of the decade. Being in the business of hosting, you could say that we are a little more than interested in cloud operations. Our platform's success depends on our ability to simplify, adapt and scale. We would like to turn this into a structured and tested practice for others to benefit from as well.


We are looking for an individual who has an innate interest and proven success in driving cloud infrastructure development and enhancement - someone who is a theorizer, educator and implementer. You would be a leader of this effort and would have the opportunity to dabble in a bit of everything that we do in order to get started. You'll be a great fit for this if you:

  • Are stimulated by complex problems
  • Are a self-starter and take initiative to navigate these complex problems
  • Have curiosity to learn different ways to approach an issue
  • Are interested in sharing and teaching others about your ideas
  • Thrive in a collaborative environment
  • Are able to synthesize and analyze new concepts quickly
  • Have the ability to work in a fast-paced environment, and
  • Have a good sense of humor and a positive, can-do attitude

What you can expect to be doing:


You will use your hands-on and growing knowledge of DevOps, software development, infrastructure automation, security best practices, and effective integration methodologies to help us deliver product features quickly and reliably via our evolving PaaS and IaaS capabilities. You will focus on transitioning operations to become more automated, scalable and adaptable to a prospective customer's needs.


To be considered for this position, you must have:

  • A Bachelor's degree in Computer Science/Engineering or a related field, or equivalent experience
  • Minimum 1 year of hands-on experience designing and deploying with cloud computing infrastructure
  • Passion for and proven success with infrastructure automation
  • Deep understanding and experience building large scale systems
  • Good presentation skills for a diverse audience
  • Innate interest in "the cloud" and its underlying technologies, architectural options, and the competitive landscape
  • Familiarity with OpenStack, Mesos, Kubernetes
  • Familiarity and experience with Linux containers (specifically using either the Docker or Rocket container engines)
  • Proficiency with Linux OS

Ideally you will also be able to demonstrate:

  • Experience implementing PaaS and IaaS infrastructure
  • A working knowledge of C, C++, Golang
  • Familiarity or experience in the telephony industry
  • Familiarity with CentOS
  • Familiarity using SaltStack or other config management tools (Ansible, Chef, Puppet)
  • Experience with PCI and HIPPA compliance

If the above sounds interesting to you and is a good fit for your skillset, then we'd love to have you on the team.
