We're looking for an experienced and enthusiastic Sr. DevOps Engineer (Terraform, AWS) to join the team at Modus. 

About You

Experience: Senior level

[In reference to requisition 1860]

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.

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 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 hours daily. In addition, reliable high-speed internet is a must.

This position makes heavy use of:

  • AWS
  • Infrastructure as Code (terraform, CloudFormation)
  • Databases, Data transformation, ETL
  • Containerization
  • CI/CD Pipelines, e.g. Jenkins
  • Networking concepts

Ideal Qualifications:

  • Team lead experience, including mentoring and guiding other team members
  • Proven ability to lead projects and manage a team of engineers

You love learning and understand that software is an ever-evolving world. You enjoy playing with new tech and exploring areas that you might not have experience with yet. You are self-driven, self-learner willing to share knowledge and participate actively in your community.

Having overlap with your team is critical when working in a global remote team. Modus requires all team members to overlap with EST hours daily. In addition, reliable high speed internet is a must.

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:
