  • Develop automation scripts by submitting PRs and participating in code reviews (Github)
  • Build monitors and alerts that keep uptime high and production incidents low (Splunk, Datadog, Cloudwatch)
  • Participate in a shared on-call rotation that rewards proactivity and de-emphasizes "heroing" (PagerDuty)
  • We handle healthcare data, so you'll observe HIPAA and related laws


  • Proficient in one or more programming or scripting languages (Python, Go, Bash)
  • 2+ years experience operating container hosting platforms (Kubernetes, AWS EKS, GKE or AKS)
  • 2+ years experience leading infrastructure projects and working with application teams (DevOps / SRE)
