  • Are open-minded, appreciate direct feedback, and revel in intellectually rigorous environments
  • Have experience with DevOps in a Cloud environment (i.e., OpenStack, Azure, AWS)


  • Having whole-problem responsibility — we don’t feed engineers features and bugs to fulfill

  • Collaborating with experts in their fields, becoming one of a handful of the world’s sharpest and most engaged minds


  • Identifying and understanding DevOps/DevSecOps problems

  • Able to spell Kubernetes in at least 42 languages 😉
