The Cloud Foundry team is looking for a few great TechOps engineers to make our development teams as productive as possible
You fearlessly dive into new technology learning as you go. If you don’t already know how to install it, configure it, or manage it, you’ll figure it out. Then you’ll figure out how to automate administration tasks so you can reliably and repeatably stand it up all over again.
You might not have heard of TechOps before, but you know what POST stands for and aren’t afraid of vlans or routers. You can build a vSphere cluster on Monday and an OpenStack Cluster on Wednesday then tear them both down on Friday to be ready for the next week. You can pick out a SAN, install it, and troubleshoot it when things go wrong.
You’re easy to work with – you can politely explain why a request for 2046 ip addresses is unreasonable, be convinced that it’s not, and know how many bits will be in the netmask. You’re excited to work in a small department that works to keep an entire team of engineers productive.
Cloud Foundry is a open source platform-as-a-service that allows developers to easily deploy their application code, manage data services, and connect them together. It runs on many different infrastructure providers including AWS, OpenStack, and vSphere.
TechOps is a small group within the Cloud Foundry team. Our charter is to make developers as productive and efficient as possible. Sometimes we pair with developers; other times we hide in the server room. We set up local clusters for testing. We care for networking equipment, provide expertise for hardware purchases, and dive into almost anything that plugs into an electrical outlet.
Cloud Foundry engineering is located in San Francisco, in our SOMA office near 4th and Howard St. To make sure you start your day energized, we provide a catered breakfast every weekday morning, and unlimited snacks/drinks are of course available all day. Our collaborative, open-plan office space is filled with talented, like-minded engineers who enjoy taking advantage of our weekly Tech Talks, playing ping pong, and hanging out with their co-workers.
Strong Unix operations experience
Excellent communication skills
Ability to read code – We don’t expect you to write code 40 hours a week (if that’s what you want, see our Software Developer position) but you’ll write scripts and read code occasionally.
Ability to triage requests and solve them in priority order
- Ability to evaluate vendors for hardware and SaaS offerings
Apply by sending us a resume and a cover letter to tell us why Cloud Foundry is a good fit for you, and why you are a good fit for Cloud Foundry.
