The client is growing fast, both in the number of people using the platform, and the number of engineers building it. It’s an exciting time, and we’re helping them find a talented Senior DevOps Engineer to build out the cloud infrastructure and tooling that will enable them to expand the platform safely, securely, and reliably.

  • Keep their infrastructure secure and compliant. Build out tools and policies that ensure that your fellow engineers have easy access to everything they need to make their part of the platform great, without having access to the things that they don’t.
  • Find the best tool for the job. Research, recommend, and implement new infrastructure and tools to enable new product features.
  • Measure wisely, alert actionably. Implement high-quality monitoring and actionable alerting to ensure that the Tegus platform is operating at the high level that our users expect.
