Senior DevOps Engineer

| Seattle
Who we are:
Rover.com connects pet parents with the nation’s largest network of pet sitters and dog walkers. On Rover, pet parents can easily discover, book, and manage personalized care for their dogs including pet sitting, dog walking, and doggy day care. Founded in 2011 on the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the unconditional love of a dog, Rover improves and simplifies life for pet parents and the dogs they love.
We're headquartered in downtown Seattle. We're an agile, fast-growing startup, and our leadership comes from some of the country's most respected tech companies. We've been named among Seattle's "Best Places to Work" in Seattle Met magazine, Seattle Business Magazine, and the Puget Sound Business Journal." We're also a recipient of Seattle Business Magazine's 2015 Tech Impact Awards. Needless to say (but we're going to say it anyway)—we love dogs, and we wouldn't dream of going to work without them by our sides.
Who we're looking for:
We're looking for an experienced software engineer for our technical operations team. This is a hands-on position in a cloud-native environment with the opportunity to be part of and shape the transition to Kubernetes as our strategic platform, make our infrastructure even more scalable and reliable than it already is and work on projects of various sizes with our fellow engineering teams.
The ideal candidate is detail-oriented, has excellent communication skills, loves to work on cutting edge technology, and has a propensity for problem solving and helping others.
What does Infrastructure at Rover look like?
The infrastructure that powers Rover’s consumer facing web app runs in AWS. It is fully automated (IAC and CI/CD) with Kubernetes as its strategic platform. Rover’s data infrastructure has AWS Redshift as its centerpiece which together with a data lake supports various traditional and machine learning based applications. The IT environment uses very little on-premise hardware and leverages SaaS products whenever possible to support end user systems.
The teams of the Infrastructure organization are responsible for data, IT, machine learning and cloud at Rover. Most of our customers are engineers, but collaboration with teams outside of the Tech organization is common.
