Now Hiring: DevOps Engineer

Perfect Sense is a collective group of intelligent, fun, personable people working together to provide innovative software solutions and solve complex business challenges.

Do you want to work hard alongside talented product managers, engineers, and product experts every day? Do you excel when you are smack in the middle of a challenging project, thrive when things get complex, and yawn when everything is going according to plan? Do you actually want to like your clients and coworkers? We work in an open, collaborative environment and seek talented individuals who enjoy problem-solving and straying outside the routine.

As a DevOps Engineer, you will be instrumental in creating and maintaining the systems that power the sites managed by Perfect Sense. Like traditional operations, you will develop an understanding of the systems underpinning Brightspot by working on OS-level components and utilities. You will also develop an understanding of how Brightspot itself operates to help our developers work even more closely with their code. Using both internally developed and off-the-shelf, open-source software, you’ll solve problems critical to Perfect Sense and its customers.
