Senior AWS Engineer

| Chicago

What you’ll be doing:
In this role, you will work on our Application & Platform Infrastructure team to automate all aspects of our cloud and on premise infrastructure. You will be responsible for building and maintaining our infrastructure, as well as our system automation, while adhering to our Infrastructure as Code philosophy. As a senior engineer, we expect you to be passionate about automation and tooling, but also in sharing this passion with other teams across the technology organization. In return, we will continue to develop your professional skills and support your own career growth to set you up for long term success.

Your core priorities will be to:

  • Build automations and tooling to improve and evolve how Enova runs applications and microservices in AWS and in our data center
  • Work alongside Analytics, Data Services, and Software Engineering to grow and build out our AWS based decisioning as a service product
  • Operate as an advisor to software engineers building, designing, and supporting microservices including lambdas and serverless
  • Provide subject matter expertise in server and service configuration to teams across the Technology organization

What you should have:

  • Hands on experience running a hybrid cloud infrastructure in AWS
  • 5+ years of Unix / Linux systems engineering in a production environment
  • Expertise with configuration management tools (Chef, Puppet, or similar)
  • Working knowledge of Bash, Perl, Ruby and/or Python scripting
  • Experience with virtualization and containerization technologies
  • Understanding of web technologies and protocols
  • Networking knowledge pertaining to cloud, systems, and services
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience

Nice to have:

  • Docker and/or Kubernetes Experience
  • Ruby, Go, PostgreSQL knowledge
  • Experience with Continuous Integration and Deployment Pipelines

About our team:
We work in a mixed infrastructure environment, leveraging both co-location facilities and AWS for our production environments. Our tech stack is: Ruby on Rails, Go, Postgres, and Debian/Ubuntu Linux. Our Application & Platform Infrastructure team works with AWS, Chef, Terraform, CloudFormation, VMware, Kubernetes, and Jenkins. While experience with these specific technologies is a bonus, it is not required for the role. By automating the infrastructure, our team supports all of our services developed by our Software Engineering Team and run by our Technical Operations Team.

About Enova:
Enova is a leading provider of online financial services that leverages its advanced technology and analytics to provide access to credit for non-prime consumers and small businesses. Our roots are in Chicago, but we have served nearly 5 million customers through our six businesses in the U.S. and abroad. We pride ourselves on hiring smart and driven people who bring new and innovative ideas to the table. Our philosophy is, "Life’s short. Work some place awesome."

Many of us consider our people to be Enova’s best perk. But to sweeten the deal, we also have a pretty awesome list of conventional (and less conventional) perks and benefits including competitive salaries, health care benefits, a 401K matching plan, a revamped parental leave program (and brand new nursing rooms for our returning mothers!) summer hours, tuition reimbursement and a sabbatical program. And of course we also have the things you’d expect at a leading tech company in Chicago, such as the snacks, game room, onsite massages/barbers/nail technicians, monthly social events, and sporting sponsorships.

Our goal at Enova is to recruit, hire, develop and maintain a diverse workforce. It is our policy to provide equal employment opportunity for all persons and not discriminate in employment decisions by placing the most qualified person in each job, without regard to any other classification protected by federal, state, or local law.

An Insider's view of Enova

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Enova encourages employees to own their work-life balance journey by providing an environment that allows them to be successful. Leaders value the results you create, rather than the number of hours in front of your desk to get to those results. Bottom line, people respect that you have your own unique working style, which is yours to discover.

What are some social events your company does?

Enova’s social calendar has something for everyone. Events range from comedy shows to bowling for charity. We host & sponsors events, including the Chicago Women in Tech conference and weekly meetups. It’s easy to find people with similar interests; if there’s something missing from Enova’s social list, make it happen! People will definitely join.
