If it can be done better, we jump at the chance to make it happen. This is one of the principles that guides our Application Services team here at GSG as we use technology to remove roadblocks, automate tasks, and eliminate toil. If you’re the type of person who sees something repetitive and inefficient and wants to find some way to make that easy, this role is the perfect fit.
Our Application Services team provides the platforms and tools to help our product teams deploy and operate scalable, reliable, high performance applications. Our team’s software development is often focused on optimizing existing systems and processes to solve operational problems at scale.
The perfect addition to our team loves the opportunity to learn new technologies and approaches, and is comfortable embracing change. We’re looking for someone with a software development background, whose instinct is to ask “How do I write software to do this, so no one has to ever do it again?”, not just “How do I get this thing done?”. You walk the fine line between adding new features and promoting stability. Ideally you’ve mastered a few technologies, but have exposure to a much larger number and are comfortable trying different things out.
To give you an idea of the projects and tasks you’ll take on, here are just a few that come to mind:
- Automating operational tasks
- Automation of system patching
- Building and operating Kubernetes clusters
- Software deployment pipeline automation
- Cloud based services (AWS/GCP)
You are the perfect fit if:
- You have a minimum of 2-5+ years experience as a developer or system administrator, ideally both
- You have experience with a scripting language (Ruby, Python, Perl, etc.)
- You’ve worked with technologies such as VMware and Linux
- You thrive in ambiguity and like building processes instead of having your tasks laid out for you step by step
Our extraordinary company culture is the foundation of our unmatched customer service — just ask our clients! We reward teamwork, professional excellence, and individual responsibility. Using the best collaboration tools available, we offer a technology-rich work environment that makes it possible for us to support on-site and telecommuting positions tailored to the needs of our employees. If you are passionate about your work, you have entrepreneurial spirit and you want to be on a team of exceptional professionals, Grant Street is for you.
We believe that you’re more than just a resume, so you’ll notice that our application process is unique. We’ve included a coding challenge so you can show us what you can do, and passed tests will be immediately sent to your future team lead. We can’t wait to talk to you soon.
