About the Position

As a Senior DevOps Engineer / Cloud Architect at Pointivo, you will work with a team of talented and passionate folks to deploy and maintain our products, services, and APIs. You’ll help us design and evolve our distributed processing systems and implement changes to our microservices to make them more scalable and resilient. You will have oversight over all of our production systems. You’ll use your expertise in technologies like Terraform to deploy and maintain our infrastructure through code. You will manage our Kubernetes / Amazon EKS clusters ensuring that we’re operating efficiently but ready to scale quickly to meet heavy compute workloads and peak processing demands. Our customers and the volume of data flowing through our systems is growing every month. You’ll lead the charge to improve our current CI / CD pipelines and be a key driver of our team’s operational excellence. You will ensure that all environments are secured, following industry best practices and procedures. You will make certain that proper security protocols and access policies are in place and followed. In the future, you may have the opportunity to spearhead certifications such as SOC2 that help increase Pointivo’s value in certain market segments.

Lastly, and yes, we’re probably biased — but you’ll get to work with some of the world’s brightest and most talented folks. We think amazing things happen when you assemble a team of passionate people who enjoy what they are working on and who they are working with. We’re proud of the team we have created and we’d love you to come join us!
