This is a full-time position with the Engineering Team. The Cloud Engineer will work both collaboratively and independently on concurrent complex projects to deliver technical solutions, execute road maps and promote DevOps best practices within the organization. Success in this role depends on performing at a high degree of technical skill in a 24x7x365 global production environment, while maintaining a positive attitude, aim towards solutions, and good working relationships with their coworkers.

DevOps at Higher Logic has primary responsibility for service reliability in the production environment. We live at the juncture of Engineering, Operations, and Support, which means that we interact with large swathes of the company on a daily basis. The company frequently introduces new products, features, and services; these changes require a flexible, thoughtful and forward-thinking approach to scalability and performance. As a Cloud Engineer, you will have the opportunity to perform hands-on configuration and tuning of services while working to build out independent microservice architectures. Managing this environment requires a high level of individual knowledge and capabilities, coupled with optimism, focus, and close teamwork across the organization and the company.

Higher Logic operates on a large scale, serving tens of millions of end-users every day. The entire technical stack is well on its way to being fully Cloud native. No matter how much you know, you will learn and grow here.
