We’re looking for an enthusiastic and helpful DevOps Engineer to join our tech team in order to enable technical excellence.
We’re a pragmatic team here at Superscript; we host on Heroku and Netlify and don’t have K8s in our stack. Our continuous pipeline is fully automated, and we release code to production multiple times a day.
This role’s mission is to make our engineers as happy as possible. You will be building a platform to make our developer experience a joy and our code to run in production like a well oiled machine.

Improving our engineering team’s cycle time by taking their cognitive load
Creating and maintaining internal tooling
Interacting with teams and engineering leadership to find pain points
Ensuring our CI/CD practices are the best they can be
Keeping up to date with the latest trends in software engineering and DevOps
Meeting and exceeding our internal and partner SLA’s
Balancing tech direction and business value
We don’t like to put people into boxes, but it’s safe to say you;
Have experience as a DevOps Engineer
Deep knowledge of infrastructure as code approaches such as Terraform
Appreciation for our tech stack: Laravel, Heroku, Netlify, Event Sourcing
Passionate about empowering engineers and developer experience
Can use Github Actions (CI and maintainable workflow suites)
Background of measuring and reporting on various metrics for a tech team
Experience with AWS (Heroku and Netlify a big plus)
Knowledge or when (and when not) to use Docker, Terraform and Kubernetes
The ability to create simple solutions for complex problems
