Cloud Operations Engineer

EnergySavvy is a Seattle-based startup with the mission of reducing energy usage by helping utilities provide a smarter, more personalized customer experience. As a Cloud Operations Engineer at EnergySavvy, you’ll play a key part in turning that vision into reality by keeping our hosted web applications running smoothly.

What we're building:

  • Microservices with Python, uWSGI, PostgreSQL, and Elasticsearch to power web applications
  • Data processing pipeline leveraging Spark and Kubernetes
  • Highly interactive UI using React
  • All deployed with continuous delivery

What you bring:

You have a strong understanding of cloud computing solutions. You are a strong engineer who thinks of infrastructure as code (or even better, as config). You love the idea of building immutable infrastructure and fault-tolerant systems. You think of servers as cattle, not pets. You know what cloud vendor goodies are worth using, while still keeping an eye towards avoiding vendor lock-in. While you understand the need for monitoring and alerting, you dream of building self-healing systems. You believe in collaboration, acting as a force multiplier, and making the right tradeoffs. And you have been looking for an opportunity to join a company where you can use your powers for good.

What would make you a good fit: 

  • 5+ years of experience as an operations engineer (or similar) using Linux systems
  • Familiarity with building and managing AWS (EC2, EBS, S3, etc.) or another cloud provider
  • Familiarity with Docker and container orchestration technology like Kubernetes
  • Experience with monitoring and alerting systems
  • Experience running and managing persistent data stores like PostgreSQL and Elasticsearch
  • Experience with configuration management software such as Ansible
  • Strong collaboration skills—experience working directly on a team with software developers, and also working with product management, data science teams, etc.
  • Familiarity with trunk-based development and continuous delivery
  • Ability to secure Linux systems, stay on top of updates, and run penetration tests
  • Good at dealing with ambiguity
  • Experience with on-call rotation
