Is some of this tech new to you? That’s OK! We know not everyone will come in fully familiar with this stack, and we provide support to learn on the job. This role falls under the banner of DevOps/Site Reliability Engineering, so you should be comfortable with writing code to solve interesting infrastructure problems, and working within Linux both as an operator and a developer.

Our teams are distributed both in-office in Canada (Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, and Waterloo) and remotely across Canada, the US, and Europe. We have a great Mobility team that tailors individual relocation and immigration packages to best support your move.

We know that applying to a new role takes a lot of work and we truly value your time. We’re looking forward to reading your application.
