Remote job description

Snapdocs is a rapidly growing company backed by investors like Sequoia, Y Combinator, F-Prime and Tiger Global. We're an innovative team taking on the extensive mortgage market, bringing scalable and sophisticated software to a pillar of the US economy that still relies on fax machines and manila envelopes.

Snapdocs is ready to expand our team with a Senior DevOps Engineer tasked to champion the cloud infrastructure that powers our platform. Are you interested in contributing to the fault tolerant, self healing, scalable foundation that will bring an entire industry into the future? Then we have a role for you.

Snapdocs is a rapidly growing San Francisco-based startup backed by leading investors Sequoia, Y Combinator, Tiger Global, F-Prime, and others. We're on a mission to perfect mortgage closings for all. Powering millions of closings a year, Snapdocs is leading the charge to modernize, streamline, and improve the mortgage process for lenders, borrowers, and settlement. We bring security, efficiency, and ultimately a better home buying experience to a paper-based pillar of the US economy. As our platform traffic expands, it's critical that we build out fully automated CI/CD pipelines from inception to deployment. That's where you come in...

As a Senior DevOps Engineer you will play a central role in building and maintaining our staging & production Kubernetes environments, creating automation, containerization with Docker, CI/CD pipelines, improving performance, scalability, monitoring, developing best practices for DR and deployments to ultimately ensure 99.99% platform uptime. In addition to contributing to core services, you will build new tools for our engineering team & even lend a helping hand to debug production issues across services when the need arises. You will work with product and engineering teams to release at a high velocity and contribute in all phases of the SDLC. When the need arises, you are ready to lend a helping hand to debug production issues across services in addition to participating in an on-call rotation. Today our team is working in Ruby on Rails, React, Postgres, GO, AWS, Docker, Terraform & Kubernetes to name a few but things change quickly so be comfortable learning new tools.

Over the past 5+ years or so, you have gained an expertise in Linux (Ubuntu, CentOS) systems administration. Today, you have moved everything out of a DC into the cloud and have mastered AWS services (EC2, VPC, S3, RDS, IAM, ElastiCache, Redshift, Elastic MapReduce, Route 53, CloudFormation, Elastic Beanstalk). You strive to automate everything possible and have worked with server automation tools like Terraform and Kubernetes (Helm). You have a bias toward testing & know the value of clean code being pushed to production. You know the pain of bugs being pushed & take actions to prevent this from occurring. Bash or Golang are your go to tools for development & scripting today but you are also comfortable working in other languages like Python or Java if needed. A pragmatic approach is what we expect. You fall more into the Dev side of the DevOps spectrum but still maintain deep knowledge of Systems Operations. You have seen scale in your time; solving a diverse range of problems with complex distributed systems & relational databases (PostgreSQL, Redis) in both startups and large organizations.



Snapdocs strongly values diversity and drive. We want to work with people of different backgrounds and different paths in life, and we trust our team to make smart decisions. This means we value independent work as well as collaboration. We provide outstanding benefits (listed below) and while we have hubs in both San Francisco and Denver, we're an extremely remote-friendly company with over a third of our staff outside of those two hubs!

Our benefits include (but are not limited to):

  • Excellent health, dental, and vision benefits
  • 401(k) with up to 4% company match
  • 16 weeks paid parental leave (regardless of gender)
  • Flexible time off policy
  • Flexible spending account for healthcare and dependent care
  • Galileo, Modern Health, Urban Sitter, and Northstar Financial memberships
  • Life and disability insurance
  • Commuter benefits
  • 10 year exercise window on your equity (!!)
