Senior Cloud Computing Engineer

As a Senior Cloud Computing Engineer at Hellebore, you will help design and implement advanced microservice-based architectures for mission-critical systems. Because of the nature of our business, you must be able to adapt to a continually evolving set of challenges and be ready to lead.

At Hellebore, we’re working on automating everything, tackling the hard problems, and embedding security and quality into every step of the way.

It takes all types to make Hellebore great. If you are someone who enjoys creating innovative ways to reach ambitious goals, who is open to and energized by receiving honest feedback, and is comfortable in a start-up environment: we should talk.


  • Aren’t a punch-the-clock engineer. From tinkering with technology to contributing to open source sites, technology is more than your job.
  • Have the self-discipline and drive to deliver quality solutions.
  • See your projects through from start to finish.
  • Are passionate about learning, appreciate direct feedback, and thrive in fast-paced, start-up environments
  • Have experience working and developing in a Cloud environment (i.e. OpenStack, Azure, or AWS)
  • Have a passion for DevSecOps (DevOps) and building scalable systems.


  • Having whole-problem responsibility — we don’t feed engineers features and bugs to fulfill
  • Working in small teams — we emphasize agile, mission-driven work; not monolithic waterfall projects
  • Collaborating with experts in their fields, becoming one of a handful of the world’s sharpest and most engaged minds


  • Identifying and understanding cloud-native problems
  • Designing and implementing cloud-scale solutions using the latest technologies.(i.e. Kubernetes, Helm, Envoy, Ansible, Vagrant, Docker, ELK, Grafana, Prometheus, Istio, gRPC, etc.)
  • Automating as much of your job (and the jobs of others) as possible (don’t worry – this isn’t to write you out of a job)
  • Working with a diverse and talented team on next-generation defense problems
  • Traveling to support our clients (up to 25%)


  • Be a U.S. citizen with the ability to obtain a TOP SECRET security clearance
  • Experience with microservice architectures.
  • Demonstrated project ownership, not just participation
  • Able to spell Kubernetes in at least 42 languages 😉

In addition, we have a generous Paid-Paid Vacation policy: You’ll get 20 days of paid time off, and we’ll give you $5,000 a year to spend on vacation-related expenses.
