DevOps/SRE Engineer (Blockchain)


As a devops engineer, you would be instrumental in building tooling for test automation, CI/CD, infrastructure as code, single pane of glass observability, and execution tracing. Our devops engineers are key in helping our SRE teams, engineering teams, and testing teams run efficient and secure infrastructure. Security and right sized capacity planning are key aspects of the Devops work stream.

We work with infrastructure as code tools (e.g. Pulumi, terraform), containers and container orchestration (e.g. Kubernetes, ECS); event source / message based architectures (e.g. Kafka); frontend applications (e.g. React, nodejs, etc); both RDBMS and NoSQL Datastores (e.g. Postgres, Mongo, Redis, DynamoDb); Linux based operating systems; and of course blockchain and DLT. Understanding both traditional virtual server infrastructure, containerized workloads, as well as modern serverless workloads is a key part of the expertise we are looking for.

Would be great if you brought this to the role
