Job Post

DevOps Engineer
4 Copley Place
Boston, MA 02116


In a Nutshell

Come throw yourself in the middle of a startup with a get-stuff-done attitude. We're looking for somebody to roll up their sleeves, with guidance from the architect, and help make our setup more robust and modern. We're largely automated, and tend to release to production 30+ times per week, but there's always room for improvement. We're a Python shop, and a knowledge of the language is helpful, but we do have a culture of code reviews and leveling people up. You will be an integral part of a solutions-oriented, positive, and close-knit team engineering team.
