Yankees, Angels, Eagles, Seahawks, Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo…the biggest names in entertainment are our customers. We power the tech behind every t-shirt, hotdog and drink sold at these venues, and at a global list of other clients that you just wouldn’t believe. Didn’t think Point of Sale could be sexy? Think again.
I’m sure you’re asking what it is we’re looking for. Is it DevOps? Is it SysOps? Here’s what we need…we need someone to own our production and development systems environments. We need stability, scalability, support, monitoring, continuous integration, systems architecture…we need world class performance and stability. And that means we need a world class team player to help champion that cause.
You’ll own our infrastructure, you’ll build out a truly epic production environment, and development platforms that will be the envy of engineering teams everywhere. Early on, that will be the hard work of standing up new environments, smoothing out automation, defining escalation and support, establishing impressive monitoring. Over time, you’ll drive DevOps, improving our speed of execution, architecture, automation and integration with the development teams. How you go about it will be up to you…the only thing that will limit the brilliance of our systems will be your passion, urgency, technical skill and leadership.
