Senior DevOps Engineer 

As a cloud infrastructure engineer, you'll be responsible for applying best practices, helping to build up and improve system health visibility, keeping on top of updates and security issues with critical infrastructure components. We're seeking a motivated engineer to help ensure our platform is secure, reliable and available for thousands of customers that rely on it every day.

About the Team

The Platform Delivery team supports all Rapid7 products through DevOps tooling and cloud operations. We strive to maintain a DevOps culture, empowering development while promoting security and reliability.

You'll work directly with, but not limited to, the following technologies:

  • AWS (EC2, RDS, VPC networking, S3, etc.)

  • Docker

  • Kubernetes

  • Terraform

  • Jenkins

  • Chef

  • Ansible

  • Spinnaker

About the Role

You aren't just good at writing code or running terraform, but have a demonstrated focus on solving customer problems,  especially when those customers are the engineers you're working closely with. You love being challenged by your work and tackling new problems.  You have a desire to ship and iterate on infrastructure, with an emphasis on collaboration, communication, and growth.

In this role, you will:

  • work closely with our product teams to help establish, build, and maintain standards and best-practices for operationalizing the Insight Platform, running inside the AWS cloud.

  • partner deeply with a team of engineers, product managers, and more to understand priorities, maintain infrastructure, and mentor and train those around you.

  • utilize a wide range of skills across software development, networking, Linux sysadmin, configuration management, clustered datastores, cloud services, and deployment technologies.

  • demonstrate your value in the work you enable others to achieve, and not just your own output. 

  • participate in sustainable on-call incident response followed by blameless postmortems

  • monitor and scale distributed services in AWS and clustered datastores such as Cassandra

  • lead projects holistically - managing the technical details, organizing and planning infrastructural work without downtime, and helping others understand the priorities and needs of that work.

The skills you’ll bring include:

  • Have a "grab a shovel" attitude, where you're excited to dig in and work with your peers.

  • Have an extreme focus on communication and collaboration as first-class tools in your arsenal to get things done.

  • Are focused on shipping solutions to problems, not just containers.

  • Are comfortable with one or more of: Python, Ruby, Javascript, Java, Bash

  • Are comfortable with Linux based operating systems and tooling.

  • Have experience scaling SaaS services and infrastructure (5+ years)

  • Are willing to learn, and willing to teach. Everyone brings something new to the team, and we want to learn from you as much as we want to grow you as an engineer and a team member.

  • Have personal and community driven experience managing and maintaining kubernetes clusters in the wild.

We know that the best ideas and solutions come from multi-dimensional teams. Teams reflecting a variety of backgrounds and professional experiences. If you are excited about this role and feel your experience can make an impact, please don’t be shy - apply today.
