Infrastructure Engineer

Location: New York City

At Emogi, infrastructure is critically important. Smart infrastructure, tooling, and automation keep means uptime and happy users. That's why we're looking for an experienced infrastructure engineer to evolve our infrastructure operations, testing, and deployment process.

This hybrid role sits at the intersection of application development and infrastructure operations. It’s part Tech Ops, part DevOps, part QA automation and is perfect for someone who wants to grow their skillset in new disciplines. You’ll have the opportunity to do everything from infrastructure provisioning, release management, and site reliability.

In this role, you will:

  • Build, Provision, and Operate Infrastructure. We’re 100% AWS running Ubuntu. Use Chef and AWS OpsWorks to manage configurations. In the future, we may evolve into a hybrid cloud.

  • Own deployment workflows. We use Jenkins CI and AWS CodeDeploy to automate our deployment workflow. You’ll build workflows from the time the source code is written till it is delivered --  Compilation, Test, Integration and Deploy -- from system configurations to version control, and CI/CD integration.

  • Manage branches. We’re an agile teams, and we work across many features. You’ll help manage our release process so that we get the right bug-fixes and features deployed correctly. We host Git internally.

  • Documentation. Documentation is a hallmark of a good engineering team. You’ll define documentation and procedures so that they're replicable. And once they’re documented, automate them away.

What we value:

  • Good ops hygiene and speed to market. Security, monitoring, and CI/CD deployment are key so we can ship product faster.

  • Judicious testing. Unit tests, integration tests, smoke tests - they're all great. You understand which tests create the most value for the business.

  • Team orientation. We champion and value each other. We believe that if you want to go fast, you go alone, but if you want to go far, you go with a team.

  • Intellectual curiosity. Innovation doesn't happen without curiosity. We think abstractly and reinvent continuously. You should too.
