Description

We are looking for an outstanding DevOps engineer to join our team to help us design, maintain and grow our server and back-end infrastructure for our popular web-based products.

This position includes everything from working with our data center provider to provision new systems, maintaining our existing servers, designing backup and recovery plans, helping optimize the performance of our products, automating tasks with configuration management tools as well as building back-end systems for upcoming products.
