DevOps Engineer (AWS) -100% Remote at Modus Create

Experience: Senior

Hello! Are you ready to work from home and transform your career?

We're looking for an experienced and enthusiastic DevOps Engineer to join the team at Modus. Want to build awesome solutions? Are you interested in working from home with the best talent on the planet? Then keep reading.

You love optimization and automation. Building and deploying consistently is second nature for you. You walk the line between software development and system administration – maybe you're a sysadmin who was a coder in a past life? (Or vice versa?)

You develop Infrastructure as Code with tools like Terraform, CloudFormation and AWS SAM. You understand what makes a cloud infrastructure secure, scalable, and highly-available. You’ve set up CI/CD pipelines so software engineers can push from their desktop to production, with all required steps in between. What will you be provisioning with today? Ansible? Packer? And you monitor it all with tools like CloudWatch, DataDog, LogicMonitor, etc. If you have experience with CQRS applications, Ruby on Rails, Microservices, Sidekiq, it will beneficial for this role.

This is a senior-level position.That means you enjoy working with people and mentoring others. Your technical skills are top-notch but you know that the social ones are just as important. You're an excellent communicator who has a knack for knowing when everyone isn't on the same page, and getting them there. You can deal with stress and uncertainty, and lead the team away from them. You don't need to be told what to do, because when you see something that needs doing, you do it.

You don't make all the technology choices, but you ensure that they get made, facilitating discussion and consensus. You understand the parts of the whole, how they fit together, and how to orchestrate it so large teams can build large things in parallel.

You are comfortable working in an agile environment with a globally-distributed team. You’ve got the discipline to work autonomously, and the communication skills to collaborate with your team. Having overlap with your team is critical when working in a global remote team. Modus requires all team members to overlap with EST morning hours daily. In addition, reliable high-speed internet is a must.

This position makes heavy use of:

  • AWS Security best practices, using e.g.
    • SSO
    • Organizations
    • Member accounts
  • Lead engagements
  • Make recommendations around scalability and security

Beneficial supporting skills:

  • Familiarity with SRE principles and practices.
  • Familiarity with monitoring tools (Grafana, New Relic, Prometheus etc.)
  • Microservices

Things You Might Do

Modus is a fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:

  • Give back to the community via open source and blog posts
  • Travel and meet great people- as part of our remote-first lifestyle, it's important that we come together as needed to work together, meet each other in person and have fun together. Please keep that in mind when you apply.
  • Teach and be taught: Modus creates active teams that work in internal and external projects together, giving opportunities to stay relevant with the latest technologies and learning from experts worldwide
  • Interact directly with internal and external clients to represent Modus and its value
