DevOps Engineer

  • Figment
Full time Blockchain developer Dev ops Engineering

Job Description

Remote

“It was all a dream, I used to read Word Up! Magazine Salt-n-Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine…”

Is blockchain real or just a figment of people’s imagination? Come help us discover the next great technology revolution…

At Figment, our mission is to create an Internet that is truly decentralized where users can freely interact, share, collaborate, and exchange goods and services in a trustless environment. We offer staking, middleware, and application layer solutions for token holders and developers investing in and building on Web 3 technologies. Together, we can build a better Internet. 

About the Role

We are seeking a versatile DevOps Engineer to help configure, automate, and manage our mixed cloud and physical server infrastructure and networking.

This is a full-time remote position, with team members in Toronto, Waterloo, Chicago, and New York City.

What’s unique about this role is that we’re attempting to deploy production systems with newer (sometimes alpha quality) blockchain software. And given we’re in the crypto/blockchain domain, things like security, server hardening, intrusion detection, monitoring etc. are highly important.

If you enjoy figuring out how to get new infrastructure software working in a local/test environment, and then designing and automating production rollouts, this role may be a good fit.

You will report to the DevOps Team Lead and work with a group of devops generalists. It’s critical that you are comfortable working in an unstructured environment, dealing with uncertainty, minimal direction, and working across a range of projects.

Responsibilities/Duties

  • Manage and monitor cloud and physical servers across multiple global hosting services and data centers
  • Deployment automation with Kubernetes
  • Configuration Management with Ansible. Prev experience with other tools like Packer, Terraform, etc. helpful.
  • Application software installation (often building from source on Github), configuration, and automation
  • Linux server administration
  • Server hardening, intrusion detection, and vulnerability scanning
  • Networking and VPN configuration

Qualifications

  • Experience working in high uptime 24/7 environments
  • In depth prior work with automation and configuration management
  • Knowledge of Linux deployment and configuration and resource monitoring/identifying bottlenecks
  • Significant experience with one or more common system administration scripting languages
  • Networking fundamentals
  • Security best practices

Benefits & Impact

  • Series B stage startup where you’ll make a true impact on the product, customers, team and the larger blockchain/crypto space
  • A culture of honesty, professionalism and risk taking in a “non corporate environment”
  • Remote first teams working flexible hours
  • Equity and bonus potential 

About Figment
Figment, a VC funded technology startup, is your key to Web 3: stake tokens, build applications, and participate in blockchain governance.

The founding team has over two+ decades started, built, and scaled four internet infrastructure related businesses. This deep experience in IP networking, data centers, cloud security, and databases combined with our passion for decentralization lead us to starting Figment Networks.

We want to build an organization that on the one hand provides needed infrastructure & software to blockchain networks/communities, and on the other hand serves the needs of institutional and large token holders. To do this we are focusing on operational best practices (including security), software tools, research, and legal/regulatory compliance.

Our data center and technical operations are based in Toronto, Canada and we are building a decentralized organization with team across North America, Western Europe, and Southeast Asia.
