Senior DevOps Engineer (Kubernetes)

DevOps means many things to many people, but here at Conductor you’re the soul of the technology organization – you build the infrastructural software that makes our applications scale, are an instrumentation junkie, and possess what many consider a freakish desire to debug – if you can’t understand the problem by reading the source code, it’s not a problem worth solving. You are calm in a crisis, careful with your code, and derive joy from humming, efficient engineering pipelines.


We’ve got more than 500 virtualized servers spread out over three AWS regions, fronting more than a dozen different storage, caching layers, and service technologies. The engineers in DevOps monitor our production environment for failures, advise other teams on how to build highly available architectures, and spend your days contributing code to our infrastructural services, and configuration tools.


What you will do:

  • You’ll design, build, and maintain infrastructural services used by Conductor’s applications.
  • Many of our tools are written in Go. You needn’t know it coming in but expect to learn it – you’ll be building and maintaining tools that make Conductor’s software development process more efficient, simpler, and faster.
  • You’ll develop monitors and build alerts around error conditions and performance. You’ll seek root causes should problems arise.
  • You’ll work with our developers to deliver their applications to production- whether in our Kubernetes cluster or in traditional autoscaling groups.

What you need to know:

  • Kubernetes
  • Experience provisioning virtual systems programmatically is required.
  • Amazon Web Services experience is a major plus, but we’re fine with any stack provider – even bare metal – as long as you interacted with it using an API.
  • Experience with MySQL is required.
  • Experience managing Linux systems is required.
  • Experience with HDFS, or Hbase is a major plus.
  • You’re comfortable with docker or another container technology
