Senior DevOps Engineer at DroneDeploy - San Francisco / Los Angeles / Portland, USA /Remote

Salary $130k – $180k

Job Description

DroneDeploy is the leading cloud software platform for commercial drones, making the power of aerial data accessible and productive for everyone. Trusted by businesses and individuals in over 140 countries worldwide, we are transforming the way drone users collect, manage and digest impactful data in a variety of industries, including agriculture, real estate, mining and construction. Simple by design and easy to use, DroneDeploy builds revolutionary software compatible with any drone. If you’re excited about drones and want to help us create a simple and seamless experience for drone users across the world, we’d love to hear from you!

The Challenge

The DevOps team is tasked with ensuring the reliability and security of our exponentially scaling platform, while serving as a force multiplier for the rest of the engineering organization. Other teams rely upon our expert guidance to design a product that earns the trust of our users, without slowing down the pace of development. We believe that automation and developer empowerment are the key to creating systems that are reliable and secure by default, while minimizing cycle times. We use a collection of SaaS, open source, and proprietary technologies; whichever provides the right solution and seamless integrations for that piece of the puzzle. Some of the key technologies we leverage include Docker (for code packaging and deployment), Kubernetes (for container orchestration), Ansible (for lightweight config management), and Terraform (to control our cloud infrastructure).

The Role

In this position you will be expected to:

-Have a mind for simplifying unnecessary complexity. -Empathize with the people who use the systems you build. -Excel at critical thinking and adapt to new situations. -Anticipate future problems, without over-engineering the present. -Share your expertise with others, but never stop learning new things.

We are looking for someone with:

-A depth of knowledge in at least one domain. -Minimum of 2 years’ experience managing complex systems using software. -Experience writing and maintaining software applications in languages such as Golang, Python, Ruby, Java, C#, JavaScript, C, C++, etc. (not just scripts, side projects ok). -Available to work on-site within our San Francisco office, or work remotely on Pacific Standard Time hours. -Familiarity with configuration management systems (e.g. Ansible, Puppet, Chef, Salt, Terraform, CloudFormation). -Experience solving difficult problems with a scripting language (e.g. Bash, Ruby, Python) in a Linux environment.

Bonus points:

-Experience with container technology (Docker/cgroups/LXC/etc) and container orchestration (Kubernetes/Mesos/CloudFoundry/etc). -Experience with major cloud providers (AWS, GCP, Azure, etc).

Life at DroneDeploy
