  • 5+ years of experience as a DevOps engineer or relatable experience
  • Experience with microservices
  • Unwavering commitment to operational security and best practices
  • Experience with AWS
  • A track record for being able to diagnose problems within complex systems
  • Hands-on experience with containers, Linux, CI/CD, and log management
