  • 5+ years Engineering Microservices and tools across one or more programming languages (e.g. Python, Go)
  • Automation and Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) projects and tooling (e.g. Ansible, Terraform)
  • Building and maintaining a continuous integration and delivery pipeline (e.g. Bamboo, Jenkins)
  • Observability tools and methodology (e.g. logging, metrics, tracing) for high available web services
  • Designing and delivering AWS cloud-native infrastructure solutions
