TuneCore Engineering develops web applications in the music space supporting our talented customers and internal operations.  We’re looking for a hands-on DevOps technologist to join our fast-growing team and help drive the modernization and resiliency of our cloud architecture on AWS.  As a Sr. Infrastructure Operations Engineer, you will work to build, grow, and maintain our cloud-based application architecture and infrastructure.  We’re a small team with a large impact that wears a lot of different hats, so you will be instrumental in advancing our deployment, configuration management, and containerization tool set, planning and implementing our Disaster Recovery Environment, and be responsible for ensuring the smooth operation of our Production, Staging, QA, and Development environments.  This position will also be heavily involved in the implementation of planned security frameworks, process improvements, and Authentication/Identity Management initiatives organization wide.

The ideal candidate will have strong experience in containerized cloud architectures for delivery on the web, love solving complex problems and automating “all the things.”  You’ll approach tasks with both fault-tolerant and security-focused mindsets, and have the ability to learn on the fly, and pick things up quickly.  You’ll be mindful of best deployment and security practices, be an excellent communicator who is able to work closely with DevOps, IT, Engineering, and Product teams, be a champion of “DevOps culture,” and enjoy working in a fun and diverse environment.  If you’re a ninja, that’s cool too.
