About Digital First
Drift is a Digital First company, which means Remote is the primary experience for all employees. For the majority of our positions, your location is flexible! If “Remote” is stated in the job location, that role can be located anywhere Drift is authorized to do business in the United States.
Select roles may require you to be located in a city where we have a Conversation Space (currently Boston, MA, San Francisco, CA, Tampa, FL, and London, UK – with more to come across the globe), or work hours associated with a specific time zone. If this is the case, it will be explicitly stated in the job description. Please work with your recruiter and hiring manager to learn more about where Drift is authorized in the U.S. and to determine if you are eligible for employment based on your location.
About the role
Are you passionate about empowering engineering teams to build better software more effectively? Our engineering teams truly own their services, all the way to production, and our mission is to make sure they have the tools and knowledge they need to make that work. To make that happen, we practice GitOps. We run infrastructure in AWS and Kubernetes, and define things in code all the way down. Our CI pipeline is heavily automated and transparent. We leverage industry standards, OSS, and commercial software where it makes sense.
We need DevOps engineers who are passionate about both building tools that make it easier for developers to build things well and teaching engineers how and why to build things better. Keywords: * AWS * Terraform * Kubernetes * ArgoCD * CircleCI * Python * Java
