**ABOUT STACKLET** Stacklet is a commercial cloud governance platform that helps Global 2000 companies manage their security, operations, visibility, and cost optimization policies in the cloud. Stacklet is built with an open core model around the popular open source project Cloud Custodian. The Stacklet founders are the creative team behind Cloud Custodian. Stacklet provides best practice operations of Cloud Custodian, access to pre-built policies and, in the future, a fully hosted version of Cloud Custodian. With Stacklet, the founders are also working to “shift-left” the open source core. This introduces preventative control by giving developers the ability to evaluate both application and infrastructure code against their organization’s governance standards early in the lifecycle. Cloud Custodian is an open-source cloud security and governance project that came out of Capital One’s journey to the public cloud. Cloud Custodian is used by thousands of organizations today including power users like Intuit, Freddie Mac, FICO, Transamerica, Cox Automotive, Microsoft, Reuters, Amazon, Procter & Gamble, etc. Cloud Custodian’s community is vibrant, active and rapidly growing. It includes 280+ developers, 1300+ chat participants and has over 330K downloads per month. Cloud Custodian has a critical advantage over competing solutions in that it is Policy as Code which empowers remediation and automation. Cloud Custodian’s Policy as Code language is easy for IT and security admins to use because it is high order, YAML-based, and leverages a domain-specific language (DSL) where the domain is public cloud resource information. Cloud Custodian’s open source core is also written in Python, and so it is easily accessible for developers to use and contribute to. **WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR** **...** * Use and contribute to cutting-edge open source technologies * Capture the essence of Cloud Custodian practices, scenarios, and e2e flows, and convert them into great user and developer experiences * Drive our efforts to implement seamless User Centered Designs using design sprints, user research, usability testing, and other methodologies to improve the human-computer interactions with our products * Implement a system to collect and interpret qualitative and quantitative user and stakeholder feedback * Identify solutions to make our products inclusive and accessible to all human beings * Work with our product, UI, and visual design teams to create prototypes that improve our users lives * Don't get siloed into one role – As an early stage startup, there are tons of opportunities to advance your career in many directions **YOUR QUALIFICATIONS ...** * Extensive experience working with Figma and other contemporary prototyping tools * Solid understanding of HTML/CSS * Familiarity working with Agile methodologies * Experience delivering User Interfaces that adapt across multiple devices * Ability to work seamlessly with a distributed software development team in an Agile/DevOps environment spanning multiple time zones * Excellent organisational, time and project management skills * Great autonomy and self determination * Strong attention to detail and deadline oriented * Good verbal and written communication skills **IT WOULD BE NICE IF YOU HAVE** **...** * Prior startup or consulting experience * Prior experience working with, in, or on the cloud * Contributed to Open Source software * Published blog posts or designs under permissive licenses * Presented at conferences or meetups **YOU’LL ENJOY WORKING WITH US BECAUSE YOU’LL ...** * Work from home & be part of our distributed team (Slack, Zoom, Github, and more) * Personal growth experience by helping to build a truly successful company * Participate in, and help to shape, a great culture * Career growth with opportunities to earn advancement * Work with a stellar team where you can have a huge impact * Work with new technologies * Equity compensation and benefits *Stacklet believes a diverse workforce enhances our ability to deliver world class products and services.
