You will also be responsible for office equipment orders and Denver office space logistics. Going forward, you will be defining our IT best practices, including defining our IT workflow and choosing/implementing IT software for the company. Additionally, you will be working in the DevOps team to manage our cloud infrastructure, make improvements to our CI system, and integrate logging and monitoring that allows joint visibility for our IT, Infosec and DevOps groups. We’re looking for a collaborative, humble, self-starter who can come onboard and make an immediate impact.

We have few concrete requirements. We’re flexible, but we’re looking for someone with experience or interest in managing services like: Google’s G suite, GitHub, GitLab, and other SaaS applications that support operations and development. You’re comfortable working within the command line and you’re able to learn new APIs from API documentation. You prefer to write a script to complete a repetitive task, and have some experience doing so. You’ll also have experience with networks, VPNs, desktop support, wireless troubleshooting and operating systems like OSX, Windows & Linux. You will be required to triage requests and help our team find solutions to a variety of questions and issues ranging from cloud service ACL’s to helping our team members with desktop service requests. You should have a general interest in technology and making things easier for yourself and those around you. You are interested in learning more about DevOps and how to support a world class engineering team. Your growth opportunities range from implementing a new CI system to UI/UX and understanding how our software can best help our community.

We have a strong ethos of professional conduct. We’re looking for people who can work in the professional environment we want our company to be. This means you need the empathy and emotional intelligence to be a supportive colleague and collaborate well with people of widely different backgrounds, personalities, and skill sets.
