DevOps Engineer

Company Description

AOL is committed to hiring and growing the best talent on the planet within the Media Technology industry, and yes you read that right, Media Technology! In case you haven’t heard AOL these days consists of totally awesome brands like Huffington Post, Mapquest, TechCrunch and Engadget just to name a few. Additionally, we own & operate the best advertising technology stack in the business with our launch of AOL One giving both advertisers and publishers an end to end solution for their clients. With the acquisition of AOL by Verizon in June of 2015 we are stoked to have the opportunity to combine their footprint of 1.5B+ connected devices to the overall AOL strategy as we continue to focus our efforts on the mobile and video advertising markets. While we love being part of the Verizon family, we are continuing to run as a standalone company (yay!).

Above & beyond all the cool brands, content and advertising tech though we are a company that attracts, values and grows truly awesome people and talent. If you are looking for a career (not just a job), enjoy a fast paced & dynamic work environment, love working with super smart and top tier engineers and want to be a part of the continued success in growing the AOL business then look no further than this role @ AOL!
