**About Nimbus** Nimbus is a cloud development environment platform that delivers pre-configured environments to engineers through the tools and editors they already use. Imagine joining a new team and being able to jump in and start writing code on day 1 without the frustration of setting up your dev environment. Or being able to grab a coffee or lunch without worrying about your long-running process getting killed if your laptop goes to sleep or is closed. Or, how about, running Docker on your Mac without losing responsiveness and performance? The biggest tech companies in the world have already figured this out but small and medium-size companies don’t have the time, money, or expertise to build it themselves. That’s where we come in. We’re building this for everyone else and we’re doing this without dictating how technical teams should work. Rather than ask engineers to massively change their workflow or toolset, we integrate with their local tools to deliver a seamless and stable cloud experience. **About the role** This is our first DevOps hire and we want the best of the best. We’re looking for someone who lives and breathes DevOps, is eager to understand how DevOps interacts with our users, and wants to build our DevOps vision. In addition, for this Staff level role, we're looking for a higher level of expertise and skill - someone that can move twice as fast as other engineers. This person will own the build-out of Nimbus’ observability and automation platform - which will be used by us and our users - and is what’s going to us all be smart about the developer experience and productivity. **At Nimbus, you will:** * Build Nimbus’ observability and automation platform used by engineers around the world * Own and ensure service availability, stability, and extensibility * Drive critical technical decision making - your work determines Nimbus’ architecture * Take ownership and responsibility on day 1 and thrive in ambiguity **We’re looking for someone with:** * 8 years or more as a DevOps or SRE engineer (including full-time internships and other relevant engineering experience) * Expertise with automation platforms such as Ansible, Chef, and Puppet * Knowledge of and experience with developing and deploying on AWS * Experience with Go, Typescript, GraphQL, MySQL, Redis, or similar tech stacks **We’d love it if you had:** * Experience building developer tools or B2B products for enterprise * Experience building services on top of public cloud providers (like AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, and Digital Ocean) * Experience with infrastructure technologies like Docker, Kubernetes, or related technology **What are some of the perks?** * Remote first (we don’t have an office!) * Competitive salary with equity * Fully covered health, dental, and vision insurance * 401(k) plan * Unlimited time-off * No bureaucracy; flat structure
