  • Extensive experience designing and building CI/CD systems that conform to industry standards such as Infrastructure as Code, GitOps, and trunk-based development.
  • Experience developing software for customers, whether external or internal.
  • Our technology stack should be extremely familiar to you:
    • We run Kubernetes clusters in multiple environments from development to staging to production.
    • We use many typical AWS services in several VPCs across EKS, EC2, ASG, Lambda, S3 & EBS, RDS, R53, ELB, and on down the line.
    • We use several database technologies across relational, NoSQL, and a graph database called Neo4J.
