The OpenAir product team seeks a Senior Systems Engineer to support and improve the delivery of a cloud-based Professional Services Automation tool. Our team is growing rapidly and opportunities for leadership and ownership of entire subsystems are available. You will be expected to be able to operate with a high degree of autonomy while carefully following practices designed to maintain a high standard of performance, security and compliance with industry best practices.

The OpenAir product has transitioned from operating as a startup mainly serving other small companies to being part of a major international enterprise with recognizable, brand-name customers. As a result, there are many opportunities for implementation of modern best practice solutions. An experienced systems engineer will see many places where their skills and experience can be fruitfully applied and will find their desire to innovate and lead appreciated and rewarded with interesting projects.

Our environment employs a wide array of technologies. The core application is a Linux-based, database-backed web application using the LAMP stack (Linux Apache MySQL Perl). Surrounding that application are monitoring, backup, deployment, automation, reporting, and other tools that keep the site up, responsive, and secure. For every challenge that comes up, we seek a solution that will prevent the problem from ever having the possibility of recurrence. We have a veteran team that knows the value of bulletproofing and error-proofing both structure and process.

You will have the opportunity to work on containerization/virtualization, monitoring and alerting, automation of deployment, security patching, system upgrades, performance enhancement, hardware capacity forecasting and management, realtime issue diagnostics and resolution, and compliance verification.

We areheavilybiased toward automation of every possible activity, whether to reduce the boredom of routine processes or to eliminate opportunities for human error in complex operations. Applicants with experience in scripting or the use of automation frameworks such as Salt are especially encouraged to apply.

Requires a cool head under pressure, good judgment and a customer focus. On-call work is rotated among the team, and out-of-work-hours coverage need is reduced by the fact that our current team includes members in time zones ranging from UTC 1 to UTC-8.
