job summary:

Client is at the forefront of reimagining how our government serves its people, and we're looking for experienced infrastructure engineers to help drive this mission forward.

You will work on a small team, helping to improve and manage all aspects of our systems, which are deployed on AWS. We make heavy use of tools such as Docker, Packer, Terraform, and Jenkins and we continually evaluate new technologies as they become production-ready for government contexts.

You'll be responsible for pushing the limits of these critical systems, from Billion User Load Tests to achieving and maintaining sub-millisecond transaction times. By doing this, you'll help ensure that client continues delivering services that millions of Americans depend on. You care deeply about working on technology that affects people's lives, and are passionate about building and maintaining large-scale systems that are well-designed, fast, scalable, and secure.

job type: Contract

work hours: 8am to 5pm
education: Bachelors

You can work remotely, or from one of client's offices in DC, SF, or NYC.

Opportunities and Challenges

You will be working within the government ecosystem, which means working, sometimes closely, with other government contractors and civil servants. Working with people outside of your company means you'll likely encounter different working styles and cultural norms. At the same time, working as part of a larger team allows us to deliver on projects of larger scale and complexity.

The government also imposes a level of bureaucracy that is typically not present in a company of our size in the private sector. We operate in a regulated environment, where checks and compliance is built into the process of building software. This can make the path to production slower and some decisions, such as tools and processes, lie outside of our control. However, beyond writing code, finding and recommending ways to improve the way government software is built is one of the highest-leverage ways we help fulfill our mission.

You will be working with legacy systems. While our work is to build new systems with up-to-date technology, we have to do that within an existing ecosystem. Our work is building functional, resilient software for production. We don't build flashy prototypes that don't work for real people. This usually means getting to know legacy systems, often with poor documentation and unreliable narrators, and trying to determine how to replicate the systems' behavior or how to integrate with these systems. This is a great opportunity for engineers who enjoy software archaeology. If you care deeply about how software systems work over time, and building systems for longevity and resilience, this work is for you.

What you'll do

  • Work with fellow Infrastructure Engineers to build and maintain our production infrastructure to ensure ongoing reliability while maximizing development team efficiency
  • Troubleshoot and debug infrastructure, network, and operating system issues
  • Build and maintain operations software which automates the configuration, provisioning, deployment and monitoring of our core systems
  • Manage security systems, linux file system permissions and network firewalls
  • Perform automated deployments to create new or update existing production environments
  • Set up and maintain alarm systems for notifications on error conditions

  • Significant experience in one or more of the following areas: Cloud infrastructure, Unix/Linux, Windows, Scripting, or Security
  • Ability to automate procedural tasks using scripting or coding in Python, Javascript, or Ruby

  • Ability to use the shell to achieve practical aims. E.g. navigate the shell, SSH into machines, create SSH keys, read log files, move files, and start/stop services, search in files, change permissions
