About Rival
Rival is on a mission to transform the $200B live events industry by empowering fans, teams and artists with a modern, authentic and trustworthy commerce experience. Live event ticketing is an industry that hasn’t been meaningfully disrupted in 30 years. It’s fragmented, reliant on legacy systems, susceptible to fraud and lacking in basic security. To build a universal platform, Rival is tackling unique set of problems and we're looking for fearless problems solvers to help us achieve our mission and inspire the fan in everyone.
The Opportunity:
Rival is looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer who will be responsible for providing extremely reliable and resilient infrastructure at scale. We are looking for someone that is intellectually curious, flexible, and driven: you'll have the opportunity to have a significant impact across a variety of interesting areas, from service observability, local development, deployment pipeline, to wrangling containers. You'll work closely with a small team of DevOps engineers along with the rest of engineering team and will report directly to our Director of Engineering.


  • Streamline the development process through tooling and assistance for both local development and production services
  • Help operate the Rival service, improve observability, resilience, and fault-tolerance
  • Help build and maintain Infrastructure at scale


  • 5+ years of DevOps or software engineering experience operating large scale systems
  • 3+ years experience with AWS
  • Expertise in scripting languages, such as Python, Bash or Groovy
  • You are willing to be on our on-call rotation

Preferred Qualifications & Experience

  • Experience with continuous integration and deployment automation tools such as Jenkins, Salt, Chef, or equivalent
  • Experience working on container platforms, specifically Docker
  • Strong automation mindset with strategies to mitigate issues and an appreciation of the importance of root cause analysis
  • You are a very strong communicator. You’re excited to explain complex technical concepts and share your knowledge with different audiences
  • You are willing to write things down and document processes that are not automated
  • You are curious how things work and when things break you are eager and able to help fix them
