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. Today, 20% of real estate transactions are processed through our platform. As we expand our product offering to serve more customers, we need to grow our team with smart, hungry, and curious people. That's where you come in..."

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.

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.

If you are located in NY, CA, WA or MA, the salary range for this role is $161,600 to $218,600 annually plus equity in the company. For all other locations, the range is $141,400 to $191,200 annually plus equity in the company. As a new hire, your starting salary will likely be between the 25th percentile and the midpoint of the range; however, all offers are based on the successful candidate's experience and qualifications.

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.

Our benefits include (but are not limited to):

  • Excellent health, dental, and vision benefits

  • 16 weeks paid parental leave (regardless of gender)
  • Flexible time off policy
