  • 2+ years scripting in Python, Ruby, or BASH
  • 1+ years working with containers (i.e. Docker) and orchestration (i.e. Kubernetes)
  • 1+ years supporting AWS environments and native services (S3, SQS, SNS, IAM)
  • Must possess ability to work independently in a fast-paced, dynamic environment
  • Must be a team player and a leader who understands the importance of teamwork, collaboration, and open communication, including a willingness to occasionally work in a pair-programming environment
