DevOps Engineer

As a DevOps Engineer at CloudRail, you’ll be part of a small and agile development team where each member is able and required to shape the product in their own unique way. Our vision is to empower manufacturers to unlock the full potential of their factories, no matter where they are in the world. By leveraging our advanced technology and our commitment to innovation, we will revolutionize the way factories operate and contribute to a more connected, efficient, and sustainable future for all.

Your responsibilities include all the duties expected of an efficient and effective DevOps Engineer:

  • Design and implement automated build, deployment, and configuration management systems to streamline the software delivery process
  • Collaborate with the engineering team to identify and resolve technical issues related to application deployment and infrastructure configuration
  • Develop and maintain scripts and automation tools to support software development and deployment processes
  • Monitor and analyze system performance metrics to identify and resolve issues related to scalability, reliability, and performance
  • Design, implement, and maintain security policies and procedures to protect sensitive data and applications
  • Stay up-to-date with emerging trends and technologies related to DevOps and cloud computing


About You


First and foremost, we are looking for passionate developers: people who love writing great code and have the drive to become better and better over time. We need people who are self-starters and have a drive to meaningfully impact our continually improving product suite. There’s no room for politics in a start-up, we openly disagree and challenge each other’s ideas, but once a decision is made, we’re fully committed to the outcome even if we have a different opinion. Every member of the team is required to take responsibility and ownership for the success of the company, not just their own work. In return, everyone’s granted the autonomy to achieve their goals the way they see fit. We encourage everyone to take calculated risks as most decisions are reversible. Speed is crucial to achieving our goals; thus, we rapidly build new prototypes or try out new techniques to figure out what sticks while continuously improving our operational processes.

Things happen fast in a start-up, and we value experience over formal qualifications. However, our ideal candidate possesses experience in the following areas:

  • Proven experience as a DevOps Engineer or similar role, ideally with experience in a fast-paced, agile environment
  • Strong understanding of software development life cycle (SDLC) and Agile methodologies
  • Strong scripting skills using languages such as Python, Bash, or PowerShell
  • Experience working with cloud-based infrastructure, such as AWS or Azure
  • Knowledge of containerization technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes
  • Understanding of networking concepts, such as DNS, routing, and firewalls
  • Knowledge of security best practices and experience implementing security policies and procedures
