DevOps Engineer - Buenos Aires

Location: Ciudad Autonoma de Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Department: Development Team

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Experienced

Are you an experienced DevOps Engineer with passions for automation, scripting, infrastructure monitoring, and continuous integration processes? In a previous life were you a PHP developer with strong LAMP stack skills and exposure to Drupal? Do you daydream about AWS, Chef, Jenkins and Docker? Have the chops to maintain site reliability and also take the lead on building out a company-wide Platform-as-a-Service offering in your spare time?

If so, we want you to be our next Senior DevOps Engineer. We’re Mobomo and we build responsive, extensible web and mobile apps for commercial and U.S. government clients with a deep focus on the Drupal ecosystem. We are looking for people as diligent in the execution of their work as they are passionate about making happy clients.

Our ideal candidate is a web engineer who strives to master multiple languages and platforms, intuitively understands the power of the cloud, and wants to design and implement robust infrastructure solutions while mentoring and supporting a close-knit team of developers.

As our DevOps Engineer, your responsibilities would include:

  • Designing, maintaining, troubleshooting and refining an Amazon Web Services (AWS)-based architecture for hosting our domain and different clients.
  • Managing a fleet of virtual Linux servers, databases, storage buckets, load balancers, network interfaces, and other infrastructure building blocks to ensure maximum uptime and security.
  • Planning and implementing an automated infrastructure for Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) processes.
  • Overseeing production code deployments.
  • Building an application-wide monitoring solution and client-facing health dashboard.
  • Writing automated tests including headless-browser scripting and traffic load testing.
  • Troubleshooting web application issues and infrastructure challenges, and clearly communicating technical issues to other team members and clients.
  • At times, will need to respond quickly to ad-hoc client and developer requests for DevOps support.
  • Researching and contributing to Mobomo’s DevOps best practices and assisting in the buildout of a company-wide web platform-as-a-service offering.
  • Supporting our team of developers, including building development environments and assisting and mentoring junior developers.
  • Planning and estimating future DevOps tasks using agile project management methodologies, and participating in daily scrum meetings to coordinate with the development team.
  • Sharing ideas and learning together with other team members and across engineering teams.

To fulfill those responsibilities, we’re seeking someone with the following qualifications:

  • Expert-level knowledge of PHP and at least one other scripting language: Python, Ruby, Java, or Node.js.
  • Significant experience with Amazon Web Services, especially EC2, RDS, S3, CloudFormation, SNS, IAM, ELB/AutoScaling, CloudWatch, ElastiCache and ElastiSearch.
  • Strong Linux command line and Bash scripting skills; clear understanding of SSH security and credentials management.
  • Experience with infrastructure monitoring tools such as Nagios and Splunk.
  • Knowledge of Git workflows for code management, version control, and release cycles.
  • Experience using Chef, Puppet or Ansible to manage server configurations in a production environment, and comfort with Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment processes.
  • Knowledge of SQL and experience managing large MySQL/MariaDB databases in a production environment.
  • A solid understanding of modern HTML, JavaScript, and CSS.
  • Willingness to work in an agile team environment using scrum methodologies.

And these would be really nice to have, too:

  • Experience using Jenkins or other automation tools.
  • Experience with Selenium, Wraith, Behat,, and other automated testing suites/tools.
  • Experience tuning PHP, FPM, Apache and Nginx for heavy production workloads, especially running Drupal.
  • Experience with the ELK stack (Elastic Search, Logstash and Kibana) for infrastructure monitoring.
  • Passion for working with Docker, containerization, and bleeding-edge DevOps methodologies.
  • Excitement about Symfony, Composer, and other advances in the PHP ecosystem.
  • AWS Solutions Architect Certification is strongly preferred, but if not already certified we will help you with all necessary training.

If you join us, you’ll get to:

  • Work on some of the coolest products in the industry
  • Use our agile and lean principles to ship software early and often
  • Work in our flexible, result-oriented work environment
  • Fully remote work

Join us! We meet on a monthly basis at Co-working spaces in Palermo and have a lot of fun!
