  • You have CI/CD tooling knowledge (Jenkins, Github Actions) and experience in maintaining large multi-stage pipelines
  • Hands-on experience with configuration automation (eg Terraform or Ansible, but anything is fine), Docker, observability tooling (Datadog). We're fully on AWS

  • We are open to remote candidates based anywhere across Canada in this role

  • Lead in efforts to further mature our cloud infrastructure and platform offering as our business grows

  • Build and operate platform-level shared services and capabilities, such as continuous integration, continuous deployment, infrastructure automation and monitoring
  • Mentor and assist platform team members to help them acclimatize to the domain. As part of your role, you will support new & junior developers to learn the way we work - day-to-day routines, best practices, and patterns. You will be comfortable giving both positive and constructive feedback, and do so tactful
  • Coach product teams on operational ownership. Teach blame-free root cause analysis for incidents that impact the customer or our delivery performance
  • Participate in our team on-call practices and support rotations
Desired Qualifications
