    • Develop, test, and implement our configuration management system to fully automate our infrastructure
    • Contribute to the design and improvement of our software delivery processes and toolchains

      • Strong programming and scripting experience in multiple languages such as Python, Ruby, Bash, Shell, Perl, etc.
      • Willingness to cross over into the app stack - we don’t believe in silos
      • Experience with configuration management - the particular system is not important, but we use Puppet

    • Linux systems tuning
    • AWS experience
    • MySQL system and query tuning
    • Vagrant/Hashicorp tools
    • Continuous integration and delivery using Jenkins
