DevOps Engineer - Denver area

Do you hand out copies of The Phoenix Project on street corners?
Do single points of failure give you panic attacks?
Do the words, “immutable infrastructure” make you tingle? 
Then you’ll love Troy! Come work at Sturdy - Troy needs a support group.

At Sturdy you will be part of a team designing, automating, and deploying services on behalf of our customers to AWS in a way that allows these services to automatically heal themselves if things go south. We have deep experience applying DevOps techniques in virtually every industry. Every week is different and the problems you will be challenged to solve are constantly evolving. We know and understand DevOps. We build solutions using infrastructure-as-code so our customers can refine and reuse these processes again and again - all without having to come back to us for additional deployments.

Sturdy is headquartered in Irvine, CA, with an upcoming location in Denver, CO. 


You're capable of…

  • Linux administration, automated deployments, Bash scripting, Python
  • Solid understanding of the overall AWS infrastructure (EC2, RDS, S3, VPC, etc.)
  • Proficiency in networking and network security
  • Microservices architecture
  • Knowledgeable of web / application servers and load balancers such as Amazon ELB, HAProxy, Tomcat, Nginx
  • Service architecture and containerization, such as Docker, LXD
  • Knowledgeable of configuration management frameworks such as Puppet, Chef or Ansible
  • GitHub and Jenkins based Continuous Integration/Deployment
  • CloudFormation, Terraform, some other infrastructure-as-code system, or the willingness to learn
  • Various monitoring tools such as CloudWatch, Nagios, Sumo Logic, Datadog, New Relic
  • Finding Waldo in our employee handbook

Technology changes quickly and adapting to new environments is paramount to success. Therefore, being a master of a specific technology is less important than a willingness and passion to learn.


Things we hope you'll love…

  • Excellent compensation, medical, dental, 401K, and all sorts of benefits you’d expect (and many you almost certainly don’t!)
  • An influential position on a quickly-moving team
  • No middle-management, you'll work closely with your peers on a small, high-functioning team
  • Opportunities to work with brilliant people who also like to have fun
  • Amazon training and certification testing
  • Excellent career growth opportunities
