Cloud Engineer (AWS)

BlueCat Reston, VA
BlueCat is looking for a full-time Cloud Engineer in Reston.

Cloud Engineers will design, deploy, build and manage BlueCat's internal Private Cloud infrastructure as well as our customer facing Amazon-based SaaS application infrastructure and create all the tooling and automation needed to enable our teams and give our customers a top drawer experience.

The most important aspect of this team is that we're never satisfied with status quo. We continually learn, adapt and extend. BlueCat is an agile shop, so we expect you to Get Sh!t Done by experimenting, failing, learning and most importantly, pushing forward.

BlueCat is a highly collaborative place to work. We prefer walking up to someone's desk over sending an email. We support, thank and congratulate each other.

This job might be for you if you:

* Can write code – in any language; shell scripting, php, ruby, python, java, whatever (ideally in multiple languages) – and you have implemented some of your stuff into a production environment

* Have at least a few years' experience in an Operational role, whether that be DevOps, SRE or traditional network/server management

* Are familiar with at least one configuration management system; puppet, chef, Ansible or similar

* Love technology and want to work on a killer hardware platform with cutting edge capabilities ripe for automating

* Believe that a happy user is one that doesn't have to call you with problems or to report errors

* Are comfortable communicating with people at all levels of the company who are spread all over the world

* Understand that a job is not finished until it's tested, documented and highly automated

* Know that occasionally, you'll probably be fixing something from home in your PJ's

* Have worked on 24x7x365 Production systems in multiple sites and geographies

You're practically a shoe in if you:

* Like gluing RESTful API's together to create something relevant, useful and interesting

* Know your way around Cisco gear, and specifically understand Cisco's Software Defined Networking paradigm

* Are familiar with more than one hypervisor – mainly VMWare, KVM, Xen and Hyper-V

* Care passionately about efficiency – in your code, in system performance, in procedure

* Can get along with Windows and Linux and not get too frustrated

* Have worked on Amazon's Cloud Services before and are familiar with instance management, Amazon's micro services and generally understand how it all works

BlueCat's core values are:

Curiosity - We care and inquire about the challenges and needs of our customers.

Clarity - We keep communication crisp, clear, and responsive.

Collaboration - We win with each other, never alone.

Transparency - We ensure all relevant information is available – no questions are off limits.

Ownership - We are responsible and accountable for getting things done.

Working at BlueCat allows you to challenge yourself every day. Our culture advocates innovation, continuous learning and work/life balance. Feed your passion, be bold, get inspired and grow with us!

Accommodations will be provided throughout the recruitment, hiring and employment process in accordance with the AODA and the Ontario Human Rights Code.
