We are passionate about providing developer friendly cloud resources to be used in all phases of development, testing, and deployment and are excited about our quickly growing platform.

This is a senior-level role. You will be expected to lead and draw from past experiences to help deliver high-quality, scalable systems.

Your responsibilities

  • Work closely with our Infrastructure lead to grow our platform
  • Design and building cloud platform solutions in our AWS environments

    • Build platforms (CircleCi, Jenkins, Github Actions)
    • Cloud containerization / orchestration tools (Docker, Kubernetes)
    • Infrastructure as code software (Terraform)
    • Scripting and automation tools (Chef, Puppet, Ansible / Bash, Python)
    • Administering / maintaining various database technologies (PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, Redis)
  • Strong knowledge of system administration on Linux platforms
  • Excellent collaboration and communication skills allowing you to speak succinctly to very-technical and also non-technical stakeholders

Our company culture was built around a tireless pursuit to be the best at what we do. We're entrepreneurial and focused: tackling problems head-on without ego. We communicate with empathy. We speak directly, listen thoughtfully, and ask questions. We previously worked out of a cozy warehouse in Brooklyn, but are currently distributed around the globe. This is a remote role.

Air contributes 90% to medical, dental, and vision insurance and 75% to dependent coverage. Employees also have life insurance, disability insurance, and membership to One Medical. We offer a generous work from home stipend, professional development reimbursement, and unlimited vacation days. Although we are still early stage, we are always seeking ways to invest in the long-term health, wellness, and continued education of our employees.

At Air, we believe that it takes a diversity of thought, culture, race, sexual orientation, and outlook to build a world-class business. We value unique contributions and welcome people of all backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to join us at Air.
