Employee Testimonials


We are looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer to help develop and support our cloud infrastructure and application lifecycle framework. Some may call this a DevOps role, but we like to say this role is in service of the DevOps mission - "to build and support the tools that empower an advanced, fast growing engineering organization."  

The DevOps team has the opportunity to work closely with engineers working at all levels of our technology stack. From hardware industrial design and firmware implementation to micro-services and mobile applications, we need candidates with interest in a broad set of technologies.

At SimpliSafe you will design and implement scalable, highly available, and secure technology solutions for wide reaching projects in support of company goals. You will work with cross-functional teams to launch new services. You will document and design various DevOps processes and update existing processes.

We are a collaborative, self-aware, smart, driven, fun, and innovative company paving the way in the

IoT space. Join us!
