Job Description

Who we are looking for:

Were you a developer and found yourself in operations? Are you a former operator and started writing code? We think you're one of us. We're looking for an accomplished Senior Devops Engineer with demonstrated success designing, deploying and maintaining complex, highly performant, Secure Data Analytic (SDA) Environments. We also need someone with technical leadership skills to make (and keep!) our clients happy (by making them successful) through a highly collaborative team environment.

How you’ll make an impact:

  • Design, deploy and maintain SDA platforms and CI/CD workflows using Saltstack and Ansible. Infrastructure as code is the standard, not the exception.
  • Work closely with various Public Cloud Providers such AWS and Azure along with Private Cloud Technologies including VMware, Openstack and Docker. If it has an API, we're there.
  • Assist teams of Data Scientists with the deployment and ongoing support of their efforts. Their success is your success.



  • Expertise in Automation/Configuration Management. We prefer Saltstack and Ansible but experience in any CM framework, plus a desire to learn, is fine.
  • Expertise in a wide variety of open source technologies, with the ability to contribute back.
  • The ability to easily script out mundane tasks so you can focus on the hard work.
  • Expertise in IT and Security best practices.
  • The ability to technically lead a client engagement. We'll put you in charge and trust you to get the job done.
