Tell me more!

As a DevOps Engineer at Tigerspike you'll design, implement, and support tools, architectures, and infrastructures that Tigerspike provides for its clients and at, at times, for its own internal operations.

You will:

  • Maintain, document, configure, support and monitor deployment and development environments;
  • Develop well-prepared, accurate system and network design documentation;
  • Provide recommendations regarding future technology and strategy for Tigerspike’s clients and Tigerspike itself;
  • Oversee and be responsible for the design, implementation, and/or support of cloud infrastructure for client projects;
  • Refine and recommend improvements to development tools and platforms (e.g. CI Chains, Code Repositories, QA Automation tools);
  • Provide client-facing support for a Technical Lead, Principal Engineer or Technical Director where specialized DevOps knowledge is required;
  • Contribute to the implementation of backend aspects of software solutions (e.g. services, database implementation, queues, authorization/authentication schemes, serverless programming, etc).
