Cloud Engineer

Experienced Recruiting Partners - New York, NY

100% Remote

As a Cloud Engineer, you will design, code, build, and manage platforms and tooling in support of our clients' environments. You will work with development teams to ensure the stability, security, and performance of client platforms and applications. You have experience supporting cloud provider workloads and can guide best practices for running platforms and applications efficiently in the cloud.

Our engineers are most interested in solving business problems with cutting edge cloud technologies and distributed systems. Let’s face it, most of this stuff is pretty new so “10 years of experience” isn’t really a credible calling card. We’re looking for fearless engineers who love ramping up quickly by getting their hands dirty with sophisticated, cutting edge technology. We want all of our staff to spend as much time directly working with clients as possible so being able to explain and justify technical decisions is also really important. We like the type of engineer that you can pair with a product manager and have them do their thing.

As a Cloud Engineer, you will:

  • Be a champion of DevOps culture and disciplines
  • Design, build and curate cost- and resource-efficient cloud-native infrastructure
  • Implement best practices for security and access patterns
  • Administer org-hosted platforms and services (eg: 3rd party monitoring, CI/CD, artifact storage, etc)
  • Monitor and manage capacity and availability
  • Automate platform and application delivery, deployment, and releases
  • Provide strategic and tactical guidance for running workloads in the cloud
  • Participate in on-call rotation

Technical Requirements:

  • 8 years experience administering one or more linux variants in an enterprise environment
  • 5 years experience designing and implementing workloads in GCP or AWS
  • 3 years experience with one or more programming languages (eg python, golang, javascript)
  • 3 years working in a DevOps/GitOps environment
  • 2 years experience with metrics collection, monitoring, and alerting
  • Experience with Docker image/container primitives and orchestration suites (eg: Kubernetes, Mesos/DCOS, Nomad)
  • Knowledge of traditional server concepts (networking, storage, security and configuration)
  • Experience with Incident management and troubleshooting
  • Cloud asset security

Preferred Requirements:

  • Software Development Lifecycle best practices
  • Cloud architecture and design
  • Data processing and analytics
  • Database fundamentals and availability

We're a dynamic work environment with great benefits including:

  • Competitive compensation
  • Generous benefits
  • Flexible vacation and PTO policies (we have a minimum vacation policy in fact!)
