Full-Time Senior DevOps Engineer – Boston

Brian Leary Anywhere

Job Description

We have a new client in the Financial District role Reports to VP of Engineering This will be a very exciting role for any DevOps engineer who wants challenge, growth, and working with a massively scaling AWS environment. It’s a challenging role, using the latest technologies as this person’s first major challenge will be automated deployment of releases to the cloud (AWS). Our client has alot of momentum, big new customers including Verizon. Their products are at the forefront of next-generation wireless (think 5G) products. They are backed by huge venture capital investments (close to $70 million). Growing engineering team Need someone who has an automation background in a scaling cloud environment. Big opportunities for growth, including leadership/management. But for now, need a strong hands-on DevOps or platform engineer


Our client builds a “spectrum controller”. And behind it, they are building massively scaling AWS applications.  These products are used by the wireless industry, where the big new trend is “shared spectrum and frequencies” where different cell/wireless companies can get access to more frequencies to broadcast wireless and cell signals (think of 5g and other areas that require more and more bandwidth). Hugely growing and complicated area. Essentially the spectrum controller they build is a “mastermind” cloud app that millions of radios/phones can talk to manage all of this. All radios/phones would connect and get approved to use frequencies at various powers. In Boston, they are dealing with massive scaling running 12 instances of AWS (their Amazon bill alone is over $1million per month and growing).

The company has 80 people, 20 in Boston. Big clients like Verizon. They have been given special approval by FCC for this product and have other approvals in the works. Only other company that is competing with them is Google, but most of the major carriers don’t want Google to control this and would prefer to work with our client. Our Client is one of the only companies in this area with approval from FCC. They are looking for a Sr level DevOps engineer who has worked in environments dealing with lots of scaling in a cloud/aws environment. Currently, their cloud deployment process is manual. Therefore it’s too slow and error driven, so need someone who will come in and automate the cloud deployment. Should have Python and Bash scripting, experience with large cloud environments, CI/DC, strong Linux skills, Docker, Jenkins, Maven skills helpful. Anyone who works with code deployment tools like “Terraform” or “Cloudformation” is a major plus. Strongly prefers AWS but will consider someone with another public cloud (Azure or Google Cloud) if they had experience with automating major deployments and had experience with contemporary tools like Kubernetes. Not only will this person be implementing DevOps in their environment, but would like them to help build a road map for DevOps. Candidates Ideally need AWS infrastructural experience (e.g. setting up and configuring various AWS services and monitoring them (all through automation)) is critical for this role, and much of your cloud-centric DevOps experiences were more around arranging for things to happen on pre-existing Linux VMs. Need strong automation/deployment  Continuous Integration experience and abilities to take on something of this scale.
