  • Proficiency deploying infrastructure via code with Terraform (our infra is 100% terraformed)
  • Experience working with and building CI/CD pipelines (we use Github Actions)

  • Knowledge of modern authorization authorization paradigms (jwt, oidc, saml)
  • Experience with Python, Docker, Bash, and Linux

Preferred skills

  • Deep, gut-level experience with specialized kubernetes deployment tools (helm, ArgoCD, Kustomize)
  • Experience building production-grade software systems used by others
  • Experience building manufacturing tools or working in a manufacturing environment
  • Experience with Hashicorp technologies - Vault, Terraform, Consul
  • Experience with Elasticsearch/Logstash/Kibana stack
  • Experience with Prometheus/Mimir/Grafana stack
  • Experience with authorization-as-a-service softwares (auth0, keycloak, okta)

  • Unlimited PTO
  • Paid Parental Leave
  • Employee Compensation and Stock Option Plan
  • Team outings, group lunches, happy hours, parking and transit perks, typical ping pong/snackage suite, quality engineers to learn from and work with
