We work hard and challenge each other all while having a great time. We also make sure to support one another regardless of what role we are in. We don't believe in hierarchies - just team work and results we can be proud of.

What You'll Do

You will help to create a best in class automated cloud deployment engine built on excellent quality assessment and continuous integration principles.

You'll have the opportunity to gain new skills and build on the strengths you bring to the firm. We have a high bar for security, compliance and reliability to meet for all of our clients and need someone who can build our systems accordingly.

On the AWS production system, this will involve working with Amazon to understand security best practices in a number of industries (healthcare, defense, consumer goods), help select tools to manage and enforce this security, and create the scripts to run them. High quality code can only be built with the help of strong test framework within a CI environment and supporting tools.
