**About Jetstack** We are a fast-growing Kubernetes professional services and product company that prides itself with helping startups and enterprises alike in their path to modern cloud-native infrastructure. Jetstack was the original creator of [cert-manager](, the de-facto standard for managing X.509 certificates in Kubernetes. Cert-manager is downloaded more than 2 million times a day, and is in production with a huge number of enterprises including at companies like Walmart, the Home Office and Autotrader. Recently, Jetstack launched [Jetstack Secure](, a product that enables enterprises to view and manage their machine identities across Cloud Native Kubernetes and OpenShift environments and build a detailed view of their security posture. **Join our Field Team as a Senior Solutions Engineer!** Our Senior Solution Engineers architect, design and implement Kubernetes-based integrations for a range of clients. They work directly with customers, onsite and remote, and are as comfortable in front of a whiteboard explaining concepts to a customer as at a Linux terminal implementing highly-automated and scripted solutions. They deliver technical training to a wide variety of audiences, educating other engineers in the possibilities they can unlock with cloud native technology. They understand how to integrate and make the most of Kubernetes, designing and implementing solutions using modern, best-of-breed open source and commercial tooling. They have a passion for pushing boundaries, sometimes with novel and experimental ideas, and are self-started and proactive. Solutions Engineers work in a wide range of scenarios, and having a diverse set of skills among the team gives us the flexibility to work with customers on all sorts of interesting problems. The points below show some of the skills and experience we look for, but are not a checklist.

Our deep understanding and real-world experience in a variety of environments (cloud and on-premises), enables us to accelerate customer projects and provide them with confidence in their operations. We are a group of open-minded people who care about the service we provide to our customers, the impact we have on the open source community and how we work better together.
