· Evolve infrastructure, server, deployment strategies and testing to support our goal of 100% up-time and quick turnaround of deployments for the engineering organization.

· Work closely with our Architects, Engineers, Product Managers and other clients and partners of the DevOps team to meet the needs of the organization to stay competitive - from the infrastructure up to the highest level of applications.

· You have designed, monitored and managed scalable and fault-tolerant deployments and supported them in real-world scenarios.

· You have lead an Ops/DevOps team before (5 reports or more) for 2+ years - preferably at a startup.

· You have experience with continuous integration, log collection and analysis, builds and performance monitoring/tuning of your infrastructure.

· You are service-oriented, and enjoy working with engineers to make the software development process as painless as possible.

· You are comfortable writing scripts in ruby/bash/groovy/python (at least two of those).

· You are extremely reliable and we can count on you in times of need and are used to being on-call/pager duty.

· You have demonstrable experience with our stack - Cloud/AWS, Tomcat, MySQL, Cassandra, Apache, HAProxy, ActiveMQ etc.

Nice To Have:

· Previous experience working with distributed teams - directly interacting with the development teams.

· Experience with Puppet, Chef or Docker.
