DevOps Engineer Apply Now

About Sematext and this opportunity

We are looking for a DevOps Engineer to come and grow as part of our fully distributed, 100% remote team. We have been around for ~10 years and were the first company to offer metrics+logs+traces together, several years before they were known as three pillars of observability. We are looking for a teammate interested in taking our all aspects of DevOps and DevSecOps – infrastructure automation, security, monitoring, etc. to the next level

About our infra

We run Sematext Cloud in AWS US and AWS Europe, but we use a minimal number of AWS-provided services. Almost all services are containerized and run in Kubernetes. Jenkins is used for builds and we have automated builds, test/PR environments, and deployments that happen many times per day. We make use of Ansible and Terraform. Everything is redundant and there are not SPOFs. Some of the tech we use: Kubernetes, Elasticsearch, ClickHouse, Kafka, ZooKeeper, rsyslog, Jenkins, microservices written in Go, Kotlin, and Java, agents written in Go, Rust, and Java.

  • Monitor and optimize infrastructure size, utilization, performance, and costs
  • Troubleshoot infrastructure issues
  • Ensure optimal security posture by following best practices, and establishing security-minded processes
  • Spearhead the security certification processes: SOC-2, HIPAA, etc.
  • Eat our own dogfood and ensure all our infrastructure is properly monitored
  • Provide feedback to engineering and product teams based on dogfooding

Mindset and Requirements

  • Self starter, focused, organized, and eager to learn
  • Excellent spoken and written communication skills
  • Communicative, engaged, fun, relaxed, collaboration-minded personality
  • Experience with Kubernetes and AWS
  • Ability to work remotely as a part of a 100% distributed team
