As a Senior DevOps Engineer at PublicSq. you will be part of a group that delivers innovative solutions for our company. We are a startup focused on Connecting freedom-loving Americans with local community, reliable information, and the businesses that share their values.

You will work with Kubernetes, Terraform, Docker, MongoDB, DocumentDB, ElasticSearch, Redis and other various technologies.

The Senior DevOps Engineer is a key member of the team, overseeing the DevOps practices to ensure the smooth execution and delivery of all projects across.

This position is part of a department composed of frontend, backend and DevOps engineers. It requires someone who is team-oriented, technology savvy and driven to produce quality products. You will work collaboratively with fellow department members, project managers, designers and product managers. Our ideal candidate is someone who loves the idea of helping both develop technology and a business.

This position will work collaboratively on our web and app projects.

This position is well-suited to someone who doesn’t fit into traditional, rigid engineering structures. Your day-to-day will be varied with each release having its own needs and challenges. We recognize that great work takes time and effort so we aim to provide an environment that supports that. We also realize that sometimes you need to focus and sometimes you need to interact with peers (even if it’s about an unrelated topic). Enjoying solving puzzles, fidgeting with Rubik’s Cubes and dabbling in side-projects with obscure technologies are all plusses.
