Join us as a Senior or Principal DevOps engineer on a team that supports our production infrastructure. While the term DevOps means a lot of things to different people, we think about it more along the lines of a Site Reliability Engineer (SRE).

  • Build monitors and alerts that keep uptime high and production incidents low (Splunk, Datadog, Cloudwatch)

Participate in a shared on-call rotation that rewards proactivity and de-emphasizes "heroing" (PagerDuty).We handle healthcare data, so you'll observe HIPAA and related laws

You'll be rewarded and recognized for your performance in an environment that will challenge you and give you clear direction on what it takes to succeed in your role as well as provide development for other roles you may be interested in.
