The Role

The Technology Operations team at Signal Sciences is guided by three principles: security, simplicity and automation. We work collaboratively and support each other, but all engineers in Technology Operations are expected to carry a project from start to completion. We work independently and find and implement solutions to described business problems.

  • You have managed 100+ systems. You don’t ssh to make changes… ever.
  • You have experience with: - AWS - System Configuration Management (Chef, Puppet, Ansible, SaltStack) - Terraform - Docker - Jenkins - ELK stack (ElasticSearch, Logstash, Kibana)
  • You value security in your design and implementation of projects. Strong security experience is a plus.
  • You have managed data systems and have experience with some of the following: Cassandra, Kafka, MongoDB or ElasticSearch
  • You value monitoring, can’t live without it and nothing you build goes unmonitored

About You

  • You are a well-rounded generalist who can work independently
  • You are excited about learning
  • You have empathy for developers and other internal customers, and fit with our culture
  • You use the right tool for the job (i.e., no technology “Fan Boys” allowed)

The Details

  • This position is part of the Technology Operations team
  • It is an individual contributor position (no people management)
  • Located in Los Angeles, CA
  • Involves sharing in an after-hours, on-call rotation
