Women Impact Tech

Senior Cloud Engineers

    Remote

Full Time

About the Role

We’re looking for experienced Dev/Sec/Ops/SRE folk to join our team, helping our clients navigate and implement the Cloud-Native Vision. Passionate about Kubernetes, Istio, Argo, Tekton, Terraform, and all things Linux? Do you love applying cloud-native technologies to gracefully solve new problems? Delight in using TDD to build production-grade code? Enjoy creating systems that simplify application developers’ lives? Do you relish wrangling AWS, GCP and Azure?

(Azure? Really?)

Then read on!

We want to talk if you…

  • Have managed Kubernetes “in anger”
  • Are in love with and terrified by Istio
  • Can debate EKS, Kops, Rancher, GKE, vs AKS
  • Are deeply experienced in the UNIX/Linux world
  • Have Terraformed your twitter account
  • Have developed webhooks and operators.
  • Are fluent in Go and Python
  • :heart: TDD
  • Mentor through pair programming

We haven’t mentioned education

…and that’s no accident. While we respect the perseverance and dedication it takes to get your higher degree, we also recognize that many smart and hard working people opt to go straight into the industry. We don’t judge anyone for either path.

Contractor or employee?

It’s entirely up to you. We treat everyone as equals, but there are pros and cons to either role: We can only provide benefits to our full time employees, but contractors enjoy a much more flexible schedule.

We’re 100% remote, but time zones suck

Because of “client communication,” we’re only hiring people based in or near the US (GMT-4 through GMT-7). We :heart: Canadians!

Make an Impact

Our team is small, and we like it that way. You’ll have a unique opportunity to help shape SuperOrbital into something truly special. Help us build a company that lives up to our values and acts as an example of what a culture built on respect can achieve.

Why You’ll Love Working With Us

We strive to offer a structure that matches our values.

Really & Truly 100% Remote-First.

Not “some remote employees,” not “many remote offices,” but a truly 100% remote-first culture.

It’s not always easy, but being fully remote gives our people a healthier work/life balance, allows us to create a more diverse team, and helps us attract the best people we can find.

A Deep Belief in Sustainable Pace.

We dedicate a day a week to internal projects, we never work more than 40 hours a week, and we give our people unlimited vacation (and 11 days of holidays).

People can’t perform when they’re overworked. Your brain needs time off to allow it to flourish when it’s back on. DevOps is a marathon, not a sprint.

Benefits You Can Rely On.

To do good work, we have to feel we and our loved ones are safe. We provide that foundation for you.

We cover 100% of the premiums for our stellar medical, dental & vision insurance. We also pay your home internet bills, provide office equipment, and offer a matching 401k to all of our employees.

Want more flexibility?

You may want to consider contracting…

Our contractors enjoy flexible three or four day working weeks (long weekends rock!) and the ability to take extended sabbaticals in-between projects. Many of our contractors use our projects to pay the bills while they invest in their own startup ideas.

While we can’t legally provide benefits like insurance and PTO, we do everything we can to help our contractors feel like an integral part of the team.

Our Values

While these values stem from moral roots, we also just believe they’re the right way to run a business. Working in an environment of professionalism, respect, and emotional safety allows us to produce our best work, and builds a culture that enriches everyone’s lives.

 


Do What Works.

Our clients look to us to help them understand the myriad and constantly changing landscape of cloud-native tools. It’s important to us that they succeed. This means focusing on the actual problems they face and leading them toward the simplest solutions possible. This is what we mean by “Do What Works.”

Do The Right Thing.

We continually try to take the path that does right by our people and our clients, no matter how hard that can be. We believe that how you treat others inevitably comes back to you, so we try to keep our karma well groomed.

Meet SuperOrbital

We’re a small, 100% remote company focused on helping our clients with Kubernetes and DevOps practices.

We’re partners, not contractors. We teach by doing. We embed within your team, work the way they work and use the tools they use. We communicate constantly and document with zeal. We favor simple and consistent over clever and unique. We build for sustainability and strive for continual improvement.
