ServiceTrade is currently seeking a dev/ops engineer to take responsibility for its AWS infrastructure.

What ServiceTrade is looking for:

ServiceTrade needs a skilled dev/ops engineer to help scale an application that currently supports 5+ million requests per day and is growing at a rate of 100%+/year.

You’ll also get to contribute feature code to the application.

  • Leading horizontal and vertical scaling efforts, including database sharding, multi-region AWS deployments, and migration of services to AWS Lambda/serverless architectures
  • Owning and managing CI/build/deploy processes in a rapid-deployment/zero-downtime environment
  • Owning application configuration/environment and database schema change management
  • Managing AWS and related operational infrastructure costs
  • Participating as member of the software development team and contributing to the application codebases

You’ll need:

  • Web application infrastructure experience, with AWS experience, very strongly preferred
  • Prior experience with horizontal scaling of web application infrastructure
  • MySQL database administration
  • Linux system administration
  • Jenkins or similar CI/automation tools
