BetterCloud is a high-energy, high-growth product company seeking an enterprising individual to join our growing team as a DevOps Architect. While the majority of our development is done in Java we also deal in Scala, Go, and Javascript. A strong background in Cloud Infrastructure is a must, as is experience leading teams of 3 to 8 people.

Our products live in the cloud on Google's Cloud Platform. Our Microservices technology stack includes AngularJS on the front end, Java (primarily), Scala, and Go on the application side, and a mix of relational and NoSQL solutions on the back end including MySQL, Cassandra, ElasticSearch, Hadoop, and Google's Cloud Datastore. We handle eye-popping amounts of data and requests using stream processing technologies such as Kafka and Flink.

We don't expect anyone to have experience with all of these technologies. We're simply looking for a seasoned DevOps architect who loves to lead and mentor development teams, loves to architect and design automated deployment, maintenance, and monitoring solutions, and loves, loves, loves to learn. If you have these qualities and are willing to hit the ground running then we're the place for you!

  • Acts as a mentor, leader, and manager for the software engineers on their team. Works to turn software engineers into tech leads and tech leads into architects.

  • Builds a tight relationship with their corresponding Product Manager while acting as the technical owner for their area of our product. Works with the Product Manager to develop the roadmap for their team and then execute against the roadmap.

  • Collaborates with other architects and technical leaders to help define, evangelize, and achieve the overall technical vision of BetterCloud.

  • Ownership of setting up frameworks to codify best practices, reducing lines of code through re-use, and ensuring team members adhere to those best practices during the design and development phases.
