Pliant is seeking an experienced cloud infrastructure engineer to manage our cloud hosted (AWS/Azure) and premise (VMware) infrastructure. This will be a critical role in building scalable and repeatable deployment processes based on best practices. Pliant is leveraging cloud services and managing Kubernetes from AWS, Azure, Google, and DigitalOcean (with an emphasis on the first two). As Pliant is a Kubernetes based application, it will be important that you are very familiar with Kubernetes.

You will be taking the lead for both lab and production environments, and will have both internal and external customers. We’re looking for someone who will be a key contributor in making sure our infrastructure and processes continue to scale as we grow.

On your first day, we’ll expect you to have:

  • A mindset for continuous improvement
  • Deep familiarity with AWS IAM, EC2, EKS, and sub-account structures
  • Experience with corresponding services in Azure
  • Knowledge of Linux operating systems
  • Familiarity with change planning and downtime minimization strategies
  • Understanding of at least one automation platform (Pliant, Terraform, Puppet, etc)
  • Experience with Kubernetes management and troubleshooting

Immediate goals:

  • Gain a comprehensive understanding of the Pliant infrastructure
  • Learn how the Pliant product operates and is currently used
  • Learn how the Pliant product is installed

Bonus points for:

  • Experience with Apple or Windows 11 desktop OSs
