About the Role
A sophisticated infrastructure platform is needed to support CertiK's rapid cloud-based product iteration. As a DevOps engineer, you will be responsible for making and documenting architectural and technologies choices. You will engage with the backend & frontend engineers to understand their infrastructural pain points and needs, and you'll provide solutions and support to empower them for fast iteration. You will own fields like infrastructure orchestration, CI/CD, reliability engineering, security, access control, node operations, and monitoring. You will keep up with the latest development in cloud infrastructure and DevOps, reevaluate architectural choices and coordinate migration if needed. We are growing fast and our infrastructure is expected to expand rapidly. As an early member of this team, you will be able to shape the infrastructure and DevOps design and play a significant role in this journey.
