    We are well-funded and venture-backed by prominent investors including Grotech Ventures, Greycroft, and Starvest Partners.

    About the Product

    Ceros provides multiple products and the Devops team supports them all.

    The core Ceros (https://ceros.com) product is comprised of multiple single-page applications (Admin, Studio, and Player) written in Javascript using libraries like jQuery, Require, and Backbone.  It is supported by a REST backend built in PHP. The Ceros Studio is built around the HTML5 Canvas element.

    We’re in the midst of migrating both the frontend and backend to Typescript.

    The infrastructure uses Docker, Jenkins, and Cloudformation. We use a myriad of AWS offerings. We also use Okta for authentication and Fastly as a CDN.  We’re eying a migration to Terraform and Kubernetes.

    The DevOps team also supports Markup (https://markup.io), which is built in React and Typescript on the frontend and Typescript on the backend.  Its infrastructure uses Terraform and Kubernetes on AWS.

    About the Team

    As part of the Ceros product team, you’ll be working with a cross-functional group of the most talented people you’ve ever worked with. We hire only passionate and creative people with a proven and unquestionable ability to execute, and every member of the team is equally responsible for moving the product forward.

    We have a dynamic company culture that collaborates daily. We care deeply about the user experience, and we debate passionately about our ideas. When you work at Ceros, you check your ego at the door, and you aren’t afraid to be honest, especially to yourself. We take our jobs seriously but ourselves not so much.

    The DevOps team is the primary caretaker of the infrastructure, responsible for owning the infrastructure roadmap and pushing it forward.  We’re constantly looking to improve the infrastructure to make it more stable, scalable, available, more easily deployed, and easier to work with.  

    We follow DevOps principles, which means we view ourselves as the deep knowledge and support for all the developers when they need to write infrastructure code for their stories and fight the tendency to silo on a daily basis.  We each attend one of the other development team’s standups as a liaison and we keep the door to the #devops slack wide open for anyone who has questions. We review the other team’s infrastructure code to make sure it’s in line with where we want to go.  And we work to build better tooling around development processes to support the other teams in their work to push the product forward.

    About the Job

    As a DevOps focused engineer, your typical day-to-day involves:

    • Evaluating, testing and building new infrastructure tools and technology

    • Writing detailed planning documents on stories so your teammates can assess the proposed approaches to a story, offer suggestions of approaches missed, and we can all agree on where to go from there

    • Writing maintainable code (probably goes without saying)

    • Carrying out and being on the receiving end of intense code review sessions from your peers who hold your work (and their own) to the highest of standards

    • Helping the full stack development teams write infrastructure code, and reviewing said code

    • Writing clear documentation around infrastructure code and development tooling so that it’s easy to understand, use, and modify

    • Working closely with the rest of the team to deploy new releases and data migrations without hiccups 

    • And finally, ensuring the availability of the Ceros platform

    What we’re looking for:

    • Experience with CI/CD pipelines, configuration management, infrastructure orchestration, containerization, linux administration... you know, DevOps.  

      • In particular, several years of experience with Terraform and Kubernetes. 

    • An eagerness to write well documented, clear code.  You understand that infrastructure code is still code and the principles of documentation and organization that apply to every other kind of code, still apply here.

    • The wisdom of experience.  You understand that principles and design patterns are important guidelines, but not hard and fast rules.  You know when to apply a pattern and when not to, when to hold fast to a certain principle, and when to let it go.  You understand that sometimes we can’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good and we’ll have to take on tech debt, but when we do, it should be with consideration and intention (and should be documented).

    • An eagerness to learn.  We’re looking for engineers who are able and eager to keep up with the pace of our rapidly evolving field.  

    Key things to know

    • This is a remote role

    • We want you to start ASAP

    • This is a full-time position

    • Unlimited vacation days

    • Competitive salary

    • Stock options

    • Premium health insurance

    Working completely from home, you’ll be communicating often through chat rooms, email, and video conferencing. We offer flexible working hours and an extremely flexible vacation policy. And we provide excellent gear (15” Macbook Pro, iPad, external monitor, etc.). 

    Next Steps

    If you’re interested in being part of the Ceros team, please send your resume and a cover letter to us. We’re a company of passionate, honest, and sometimes silly people, so don’t be afraid to express yourself.
