The DevOps Team's first focus is to keep our company's internal software development ship sailing smoothly. We have multiple software packages that we distribute, the building of which is time-consuming and involves a large list of third-party packages and various software development languages. Our team needs a broad understanding of Bash, Python, and C++ (and other) technologies so that we can understand and enhance how the team reliably and consistently builds, packages and distributes software for our customers.

Our second goal is to create customer-facing "prepackaged DevOps tools" so that our customers can easily install, maintain and monitor our software, making owning and running our product as simple and pleasurable as possible. We want to give users easy access to our best practices for maintaining our software with as few clicks as possible and provide them up-to-date, centralized, actionable information about the status of any installed clusters.

Key responsibilities:

  • Maintain and enhance the existing CI/CD infrastructure and scripts. Identify areas for improvement and work with the DevOps team to decrease build time and increase build reliability.
  • Collaborate with the engineering team to create or refine packaging and tooling of ecosystem components, especially as new components are added or updated.
  • Provide an understanding of operational best practices in both traditional and more modern enterprise architectures.
  • Create and maintain Ansible roles/playbooks to perform user tasks to install and maintain Kinetica clusters.
  • Provide a powerful command-line interface/wrapper to the Ansible scripts to save cluster information and isolate the user from Ansible.


    • Curiosity and a love of learning
    • Tenacity to understand and overcome obstacles in your path
    • Demonstrated performance quickly learning and applying new (to you) software tools to solve challenging problems
    • Strong experience with Linux

      Preferred Skills:

      • Experience with Bash script development (especially variables, loops, conditionals, arrays)
      • Experience developing in Python
      • Experience developing playbooks/roles in Ansible
      • Strong knowledge of modern source control (Git preferred)
      • Experience using containers, including Docker and Kubernetes
      • Experience with the GNU toolchain (make / gcc) and CMake
      • Experience with CI/CD tools, such as Jenkins, TeamCity, CircleCI, etc
      • Experience creating RPM files using rpmbuild and Deb files using dpkg-deb
      • Local candidates only

        Additional InformationAll your information will be kept confidential according to EEO guidelines.
