Cloud Platform Engineer
If you’ve been looking for an opportunity to work with a newly-formed DevOps team that wants to innovate quickly and build new tools rather than maintain current structures, look no further. An enterprise SaaS company located in Reston is looking to make their first full-time DevOps/Cloud hire and bring on someone to build out and automate their "infrastructure as code" pipeline. They can pay up to $140k for the right engineer and are more than willing to invest in forward-thinkers with the desire to build something from the ground up.
As a DevOps/Cloud engineer, you’ll be responsible for helping them automate application development and virtualization in their private cloud. They use Chef and want someone with heavy Chef Experience - writing cookbooks, automation, etc. Scripting with Bash, Ruby or even Python is key and CI/CD with Jenkins or a similar tool will be necessary.
