Position Overview:
As a Senior DevOps Engineer, you will support, develop and maintain tools and processes surrounding our Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud-based Payroll and HR products across multiple development, staging and production environments, and provide support to development teams producing our software products.
You will assist product development teams to provision, deploy, configure, and monitor the software they create, and partner with other DevOps Engineers to develop and improve tools and processes that empower teams to work faster and easier, on their own. You will collaborate with members of many teams (particularly software development and security) to implement new applications, features, and environments; to upgrade existing systems; to troubleshoot and resolve issues; and to implement security measures to keep software development, delivery, and execution fast, safe, and working at top performance.
(Note: Different teams put more emphasis on certain goals and types of work, and by extension the toolsets that support them. For example: Delivery Platforms focuses on CI/CD and software artifacts. Environments focuses on building out and configuring large groups of servers into environments. The SRO team focuses on application telemetry, reliability, and fast recovery from critical incidents. The Dev Support team combines all the above to ensure development teams are successfully building, deploying, operating, and monitoring their software.)
Who you are:
  • Enthusiastic about automating processes and systems that make it fast and easy to provide great software to our customers
  • Likes interacting with other teams to ensure they are enabled to do the work they need to do
  • A natural problem solver that can quickly troubleshoot and remediate problems
  • Detail-oriented, collaborative, and self-motivated

During your first six months at Paylocity, you will:
  • Support, implement, and maintain automated build and deployment pipeline tools; source and artifact repositories; SaaS product environments; and application telemetry, monitoring, alerting and logging platforms. Different sub-teams may put additional emphasis on one or more of the areas above.
  • Identify process problems and propose, design, and help implement solutions
  • Work with other teams who needed assistance with deployments, configurations, stability, performance, and issue resolution
  • Cross-train team-members
  • Prepare and maintain clear documentation of systems, how to resolve operational issues, and how to perform team tasks
  • Provide on-call support for emergencies

  • Bachelor's degree in computer science, engineering, technology related field or equivalent experience required
  • Previous experience (ideally 5+ yrs.) administering and maintaining deployment pipelines, server farms and environments, and/or monitoring and alerting solutions.
  • Demonstrated ability to troubleshoot deployment and configuration issues and implement solutions
  • Experience in an agile environment
  • Has maintained a positive and inclusive collaborative relationship with peers and management
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills, including creating documentation for consumption by teammates

Preferred Skills:
  • Experience and advanced proficiency with some or all:
  • Automated Deployment: Octopus Deploy or Urban Code Deploy
  • CI/CD: TeamCity, Jenkins, Drone, Linters, or Unit Testing
  • SCM: Bitbucket or GitHub
  • Project Management: Jira, Confluence, Kanban, or Agile
  • Artifact Repository Systems: Artifactory or Nexus
  • Cloud Infrastructure: AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud
  • Infrastructure as Code: Kubernetes, Amazon EKS, Docker, or Vagrant
  • Configuration Management: Ansible, Chef, or Terraform
  • Telemetry, Monitoring, Alerting, and Logging: Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana, Logic Monitor, Datadog, or Pingdom

An Insider's view of Paylocity

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I work fully remote, but even filtered through computer screens the Paylocity vibe is palpable. The values we’ve committed to upholding as a company resonate deeply with everyone that works here, which means they come to life in every interaction. We are professional yet FUN, savvy yet approachable, and relaxed yet extremely driven.


Talent Acquisition Partner

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started as a Government Relations Specialist and now I am a Government Relations Project Manager. I wouldn't have been able to do this without a supportive, team, company work/life balance, and investing in one's career with a deeper lens. I have seen myself grow a lot throughout these years at Paylocity and look forward to more.


Government Relations Project Manager

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Before Paylocity, I struggled with work/life balance and boundaries. My manager is incredibly flexible and adjusts workloads to ensure we never reach a burnout situation. If I ever need to adjust my schedule to take a kid to the doctor, or take PTO, there's never an issue. I'm much happier after coming to Paylocity and finding that balance!
