About the Job

Growmotely is looking for teammates who are naturally curious and love to ask questions. We cultivate an inclusive culture where everyone can contribute, grow, and feel valued. As a Software Engineer at Growmotely, you’ll jump right in and work on projects that are important to our success. Our team collaborates with the rest of the company to execute on engineering projects that help Growmotely scale and move forward. Come join us and help build technology that is transforming the future of work! 

We are currently seeking a talented, enthusiastic, and experienced DevOps engineer to join our software engineering. We are looking for team members with a background in building and operating public facing applications to join Growmotely as a full-time member team. 

We need someone who understands software development, but enjoys all the things necessary to improve deploying, monitoring and operating production services. We're continuously iterating on our software and infrastructure tooling in AWS. We’re looking to migrate our existing platform to cloud native/cloud first technologies. 

A day in the life (the job responsibilities, what you’ll be doing, how we roll):

  • Collaborate. With front end engineers, back end engineers, visual/interaction designers, and product owners to launch new features, iterate on existing features, and build world-class user experiences that are changing the future of work!
  • Writing great software - as an integral part of the system engineering team, writing code is the job. You will be working closely as an integral member of our team to build a world-class application and platform, but providing all the cloud and automation magic that brings it to life is your passion. IaaC makes you smile. Automated deployments are your charge and focus on the team.
  • Design, implement, and maintain a cost effective, highly available and scalable infrastructure on AWS
  • Develop effective tooling to accelerate build and release management 
  • Creating or implementing tools to automate our systems and increase their security, availability, observability and performance

About You: 

We know there’s no such thing as a “perfect" candidate - we’re all a work in progress and are growing new skills and capabilities all the time. We encourage you to apply for a position with us even if you don’t meet 100% of the requirements. We believe in fostering an environment where there is a diversity of perspectives and room for growth in hopes that we can all thrive.
