Cloud Operations Engineer (Remote)
At HomeValet we're building a team to revolutionize the e-commerce delivery experience. As part of our team, you'll have the opportunity to help build a product and platform that will be used daily by millions of consumers in the US and across the world. Our platform provides contactless home delivery of groceries, packages, and medicine, connecting online retailers and couriers with a secure, temperature-controlled Smart Box outside of consumers' homes.
HomeValet is a remote-first company with offices in Tysons Corner, VA and Evansville, IN.
As Cloud Operations Engineer at HomeValet, you will combine the skills of site reliability and cloud infrastructure engineer. You’ll work closely with the Head of Product Engineering to design, implement, monitor, and manage HomeValet’s core platform infrastructure and security. Using your understanding of Azure cloud offerings, our platform architecture, and our performance needs you’ll recommend cloud-native services that best meet HomeValet’s infrastructure needs.
You will work with product owners, leadership, and developers to understand monitoring and measurement needs for the platform. You’ll assist in the definition of monitoring strategy and tool selection to implement the strategy. You’ll serve as the domain expert, helping developers to understand how to instrument their code to meet our monitoring and performance measurement needs.
You will use infrastructure tools (infrastructure as code) to create repeatable infrastructure deployments. In collaboration with team leads and architects, you will create and maintain an automated deployment infrastructure that allows HomeValet to deploy with confidence at any time, even on a Friday afternoon before a major holiday if need be.
You will have primary responsibility for securing, monitoring, and managing HomeValet’s production infrastructure. You’ll work collaboratively with the development team to ensure that developers have access to suitable infrastructure that reflects our production infrastructure and any additional needs from a development perspective. You won't be doing a lift-and-shift of existing VMs; you'll be creating modern infrastructure that leverages the best that the cloud has to offer.
As a small company, we all wear many hats. We expect you to be able to work independently and to work with other team members that can do the same. Whatever you’re good at, we will find a way for you to be able to do it. We expect to rapidly grow both our market penetration and our team. We expect that you and your responsibilities will grow with us.
You’ll have the chance to be in at the very beginning of a company that we expect to transform home delivery, giving people the security, convenience, and reduced cost that will free them to focus on their family, life, and work. We expect you to bring your passion to our mission. We also expect you to take care of yourself because we’re in this for the long haul and we want you to be with us for it as well.
Experience with cloud infrastructure required, Azure preferred. HomeValet uses Terraform, Azure CLI, and Azure DevOps to create and maintain our infrastructure. Experience with those or similar tools will help you be more successful. Ideal candidates will have some software development background.
