Senior DevOps Engineer in New York - Park Ave

Senior DevOps Engineer

Who we are:
Our Company was founded on the idea that there are patterns in people’s behavior that, with the right logic, can be used to predict future outcomes. We are a small but rapidly growing organization that works in partnership with our customers to create solutions that are simply not found anywhere else. We work in groups rather than in structured corporate hierarchies; our culture is creative and entrepreneurial where everyone contributes to company goals in very real way. We are a hardworking group, but we have a lot of fun with what we do and are looking for new people with a similar mindset to join the organization.

What we do:
Our proprietary software-as-a-service helps automotive dealerships and sales teams better understand and predict exactly which customers are ready to buy, the reasons why, and the key offers and incentives most likely to close the sale. Its micro-marketing engine then delivers the right message at the right time to those customers, ensuring higher conversion rates and a stronger ROI.
As aM continues to expand its engineering community and mature in its Agile approach, the infrastructure required to rapidly build, test, and deliver assets will become increasingly complex. DevOps exists as a multi-disciplinary practice dedicated to evolving and operating our rapidly-changing software at scale through partnership from design, to development, to production support. This includes operating and maintaining our continuous integration and delivery pipelines, monitoring solutions, and production infrastructure. This will all be done by focusing on time-to-market and software reliability.

What you will do:
• Participate in and improve the whole lifecycle of services—from inception and design, through
deployment, operation, and refinement. Maintain services once they are live by measuring and monitoring availability, latency, and overall system health.

• Support the development organization’s continuous integration / continuous deployment pipeline, including setup of production and lower environments to build, test and release all software.
• Design, implement, and maintain the monitoring and metrics systems, providing the business stakeholders with ongoing feedback on system performance.
• Work closely with leadership and IT to provide input into the design and implementation of the security infrastructure.
• Work with Architecture, Engineering, Quality Engineering, IT, and Product Operations leaders to create and implement processes that accelerate the delivery of new features and products with high quality and at scale.
• Create examples, framework, standards or other reference that develops the abilities of others to consistently deliver high-quality work.
• Develop and contribute to a culture of high performance, transparency and continuous improvement as it relates to the infrastructure services and streamlining of the development pipeline.
• Participate in a diverse team of talented engineers globally, providing guidance, support and clear priorities.
