Glassdoor’s engineering team is growing. We need to expand our DevOps team to drive our configuration management, build, deploy and monitoring platforms. We are looking for self-starters who thrive in a fast-paced, agile environment – which means wearing many hats, being able to change direction quickly, and showing an eagerness to learn new technologies as the need arises.  But most importantly – we look for people that can prioritize, multi-task, and deliver, because it’s a lot more fun to get things done.

  • Help migrate our remaining dedicate hardware infrastructure to the cloud
  • Establish and maintain operational best practices
