Job Description:

Senior DevOps Engineer at VerticaJob Description:
About your role

The Vertica DevOps team, located in Cambridge, seeks a senior engineer to further enhance the automated systems that facilitate the development of our Big Data Analytics Platform. The DevOps team spearheads our culture of automation and there are impactful projects across a wide range of areas in release engineering, cloud integrations, data pipelining, and test automation.

In the public clouds, the Vertica DevOps team creates all of the scripts that deploy, monitor, and increase the efficiency of large fleets of transient machine instances. With a heavy presence in AWS and GCP, there is ample opportunity to optimize usage, track & reduce costs, and utilize supplemental cloud services. Experience on other public clouds such as Microsoft Azure is welcome as Vertica expands our product offerings to additional marketplaces.

On-premise, we have a large Linux server farm used by engineering and quality assurance. Responsibilities may include developing ansible playbooks for consistent machine configuration, tracking system health and utilization for optimal test scheduling, extending containerization technologies for efficient platform testing, and more. The DevOps team has a close relationship with software development and with QA, and contributes our knowledge and effort to enhancing automation frameworks that enable these R&D teams to develop with ease.

As a big data company, some experience is also valuable in SQL analytics, curating ETL pipelines, and performing capacity planning on web services. Our engineering decisions should be data-driven in the same way as we recommend to customers, so we collect and process a large amount of usage data across our internal services.

It's an exciting time to join the team. Vertica is growing quickly to meet the high demand for Big Data solutions, and this role offers a chance to enact improvements and rethink processes that improve both customers experience with Vertica and our engineers workflows.
