You will be responsible for maintaining auditable secure infrastructure as code, as well as developing brand new services and products.

  • Collaborate closely with developers to improve tooling and deployment pipelines to achieve efficiency gains
  • Perform ongoing improvements to achieve compliance with cloud security standards
  • Refactor and modularize existing infrastructure code (terraform)
  • Research and implement new infrastructure in support of a growing set of needs for new services, self-hosting of vendor software, and data transformation pipelines

Skills and experience that will help you succeed

  • A senior level background in software development, especially event driven systems & domain driven design, and test driven development
  • Mid to senior level experience with Terraform, developing modular infrastructure as code
  • Familiarity with AWS Well Architected Framework and/or experience building reliable infrastructure with a security first approach
  • Familiarity with data, event pipeline, and customer data platform products in AWS or otherwise (EventBridge, PostHog, Rudderstack, etc.)
  • Familiarity and expertise in OWASP, CIS Benchmarks, and other security frameworks
  • Confidence in refactoring legacy code as well as greenfield development
  • Experience with shell scripting, git, regex, and other command line tools

Here's a bit about our culture

  • We’re a growing team: Fully distributed across the world, Slack and Huddles are huge here.
  • We’re very flat: Leadership is desired and encouraged; we hire people who care about and use the product they are working on.
  • We’re Bitcoiners: We find solutions that encourage Bitcoin principles. We are often involved in the Bitcoin community through writing, podcasts, conferences, open source projects, and time spent on Twitter to help educate the masses. We love Bitcoin, and it comes through in our daily chats, meetings, and actions.

Join us, become a Swan!
