DevOps Engineer - Intern
Are you a self-starter? Do you want to work where you can make an immediate impact? Civis Analytics is looking for a DevOps Engineer Intern to join our team!
Civis Analytics was born on the campaign trail, with CEO Dan Wagner and our founding members spearheading the 2012 Obama for America analytics team. Since then, our DC and Chicago teams have been building software and growing rapidly among a steadily developing client base in education, energy, government, healthcare, media, nonprofits, and politics. It’s our mission to empower organizations to find truth and guide actions that will change their world for the better.
Are you interested in automating and orchestrating high performance, cloud-based, infrastructure using Amazon Web Services? At Civis Analytics, we're building a data science platform, making cutting-edge machine learning and predictive modeling techniques available to a broad audience. The DevOps team makes it all possible.
We are looking for individuals from a wide range of backgrounds with demonstrated quantitative and problem-solving skills. We value creativity, hard work, and on-the-job-excellence. We offer competitive compensation and benefits packages. In compliance with federal law, all persons hired will be required to verify their identity and eligibility to work in the United States.
We trust our engineers. One of the perks of working with the best is that you're given the trust you deserve. Are you interested in pursuing a new way of solving an old problem? Nice -- give it a shot. Yes, you will still have a manager and deliverables, but we make a point of giving creativity the room and respect it deserves.
Your voice can change the direction of a project. We strongly encourage our engineers to participate in the brainstorming and prioritization process. We don't want people that mindlessly program. We want your perspective and experience. Challenge our assumptions, make us rethink our strategy, and help us improve our solutions. Your expertise will be a critical part of our success and you'll be recognized for your contributions.
We are smart, fun, and a little bit weird. Does this sound like you?
