DevOps & Productivity Tools Engineer at Platfora in San Mateo, CA
You live and breath automation and push the limits of what and how applications can be deployed.

You love the challenge of working with new technologies, and your past work demonstrates this. You have a strong knowledge of Python or Ruby, and have the ability to setup a configuration management system from scratch. You have a keen interest in knowing the status of your deployments, and ensure metrics are available for viewing. You enjoy being apart of a collaborative team that is focused on building a product that will delight customers.
You will be responsible for developing a configuration management portal that will allow Engineers and others to deploy and configure Platfora, Hadoop, Jenkins, and other essential systems at the click of a button. You will work with Development and QA to build a set of scripts and daemons that will help monitor and debug issues seen within these systems. You will work closely with our Engineering, Sales Engineering, and Product teams to enhance the Platfora installation and deployment processes. You will build or enhance tools to help improve developer productivity, such as automated assignment of errors found in logs or automated assignment of build failures.
