Job description:

We are now recruiting for a devops engineer who would like to become part of our core team at Sinov8 software solutions. At our core we solve problems and love doing it! We're passionate about building products. We believe in writing clean, simple, and maintainable code.

We're a full stack team, meaning you'll have a seat at the table in a lot of the product and design discussions and will play a critical role in rolling out our solutions.

What you'll do

  • You'll become part of our product development team with a mission to learn and grow in your first couple of months with us.

Taking responsibility for shipping code requires some experience in both development and sysops. You don't need decades of experience but having gotten your hands dirty with both coding and cloud hosting management is important for you to succeed in this role.

You need to be, or want to be, a cross-functional person who speaks the language of both ops and dev teams.

  • Experience using PHP or other programming languages
  • Understanding of MVC design patterns and object oriented programming
  • Interested in security, performance and monitoring
  • Experience managing servers on AWS
  • Experience with automation and configuration using common CI/CD and other configuration management tools. (At the moment we use GitHub Actions + AWS Elastic beanstalk)
  • 2 - 3 years working in tech as a developer or sysadmin
