Senior DevOps Engineer

About the Position:

DevOps is an extremely technical, demanding team that functions at the center of MuleSoft’s business objectives. We’re obsessively focused on maintaining high availability for all of the services we manage, while also implementing the infrastructure solutions that our product teams need in order to succeed. To accomplish this, we’ve implemented a cutting edge public cloud environment on top of Amazon Web Services, composed from Linux hosts running a variety of open source software like NGINX, Tomcat, NodeJS, MongoDB, Drupal, and, naturally enough, Mule. In order to maintain and manage these services, we’ve also built a configuration management toolset based on SaltStack to load and run everything, and a monitoring architecture leveraging Zabbix to let us know when things break.  

As a DevOps engineer at MuleSoft, you will be constantly presented with new challenges with an enormous scope and endless variety. On any given day, you might be troubleshooting a performance degradation for one of our critical SaaS services, writing automation code to help a broken application automatically recover, designing the system architecture for a new platform service, implementing new monitoring logic, or any of a million other things. We’re looking for technology generalists with strong bias to action, excellent analytical skills, and a taste for good engineering. In exchange, we offer an unbeatable work environment, autonomy and support to do what’s right, generous compensation, and limitless room for growth.

Position Deliverables:

  • Become the subject matter expert for a particular MuleSoft service, working in tight cooperation with the relevant software team
  • Provide operational support for software deployments and production incident response
