Job Description

Cloud/DevOps Engineer- REMOTE

Why you want to work at Flexion:

We're looking for a Cloud DevOps Engineer with an unwavering passion for working in autonomous, self-directed teams to build complex systems using lean, agile mindsets. You will deliver incremental business value with each sprint and enable options at all scales. You and your team will build automated, enterprise-scale tools, working with other teams to effectively consume and use data to improve the healthcare digital experience of millions of Americans.

Flexion is an agile software company that's been delivering excellence for over 24 years. Our company culture is built on trust and transparency. We empower self-directed teams by hiring people who can solve complex problems by functioning collaboratively. This means lending a hand and flexing your multi-skilled muscles (business application software engineering, database engineering, DevOps, security engineering, information architecture, etc.) as needed. Every member within a cross-functional team is a leader who takes responsibility for the entire team's success, which mirrors the company's overall flat structure.

What the job looks like:

You'll be part of a multi-disciplinary, agile foundational components team tasked with improving DevOps and data governance practices for modernizing enterprise government systems in healthcare. We strive to automate all the things and build the highest quality systems with modern, cloud-native tools and emerging technologies. The project work is primarily remote but may require some client on-site work estimated at < 10%.

  • You advance the state-of-the-art practice for agile cloud engineering, site reliability, Infrastructure as Code and DevOps engineering across Flexion and our clients, such as delivering small narrow slices of functionality, Test Driven Development, Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment.
  • You swarm and pair with your team to design, code, test, debug, deploy and document software in an agile environment, including application framework components.
  • You collaborate with other teams in the organization to define supporting infrastructure and software tools needed to run and monitor software in a large scale environment.
  • You contribute to the design and architecture of software and infrastructure to ensure projects meet goals for security, scalability, maintainability, availability, and resiliency. You are able to clearly articulate and present the implications of design and architectural choices, issues, and plans to program leaders and stakeholders.
  • You learn and analyze new technologies and industry best practices to identify suitability for adoption by the development team and the programs we support.
  • You drive a quality mindset within the team.
  • You consult with and advise cloud engineers on the client program teams on cloud engineering best practices.
  • You work with other engineers across the foundational components teams and partner teams on larger DevOps initiatives to support the entire division.
  • You facilitate technical designs, architecture and planning.
  • Although you are a member of the foundational components team, you may work directly with other development teams as an "Embedded Liaison". In this case, some of your time will be spent with your other team as a Liaison, while the rest is spent working with the foundational components team to build tools and solutions.

Why we want to hire you:

You thrive working in a dynamic environment and think, design, and code with the knowledge that things will change. You can design small pieces as you go, while still thinking about how they fit into the whole. You welcome change as a positive thing and never look at anything you deliver as "final." You understand when "good enough" really is good enough, without ever compromising on the overall product quality. You want to work with team members who challenge and support you every day. You demonstrate an unwavering commitment to automated code coverage.

You have these attributes:
  • A history of technical leadership, excellent communications, relationship building and positive attitude.
  • A self-starting, go-getter attitude.
  • Passionate about learning new technologies and the ability to do so quickly.
  • Dedicated to agile engineering practices.
  • Write tested, high-quality code efficiently.

  • Node.js, JavaScript, Postgres, DynamoDB.
  • Building to design patterns and other software engineering best practices.
  • Building APIs using a microservices architecture.
