Job Title: Junior DevOps (Site Reliability) Engineer


At ZapLabs, we work to build and improve a platform that helps real estate professionals work effectively, and helps delight home buyers and sellers with an excellent experience. We do that by combining great technology with great people—and we’re looking for a Junior DevOps (Site Reliability) Engineer to join our team.


What we’re looking for:

You’re a highly motivated DevOps (Site Reliability) Engineer who’s excited about helping to build a modern infrastructure for building, deploying, and monitoring high-volume consumer-facing web applications, along with internal tools and systems. You should be passionate about engineering and operations (you read the Netflix and Airbnb engineering blogs with your morning coffee, and you have a copy of Google’s Site Reliability Engineering book on your bedside table). You excel at writing code to automate everything.


What you’ll do:

You’ll work on everything from transitioning a good chunk of our infrastructure to Amazon Web Services/AWS, helping us move to a container-based service architecture, and supporting the “Big Data” infrastructure used by our Data Science team. Some of your responsibilities will include:


  • Help resolve issues in production, test, and dev environments
  • Test our systems and processes
  • Work on tools for deployment, monitoring and operations


Skills, accomplishments, & interests you should have:

  • 2+ years of experience working in a Software Engineering/DevOps role preferred
  • 1+ year(s) of experience working with UNIX / Linux systems administration preferred
  • Will consider new graduates with programming experience
  • BS in Computer Science, Engineering, or related technical discipline
  • Configuration management tools, preferably Salt (we have lots of servers and need to manage them in an automated way)
  • Experience with any of the following languages: Python, Shell, Java, etc.
  • Ability to iterate quickly in an agile development process
  • Excited to learn new technologies and evaluate technology solutions to problems
  • Ability to work in a highly collaborative environment
  • Solid communication skills
  • Motivated to learn and grow DevOps skills
  • And of course, writing good code! (data structures, algorithms, etc.)


Nice to haves:

  • Experience with continuous integration software, e.g. Jenkins or Bamboo
  • Amazon Web Services / AWS skills—a big part of our plan for the next six months is to move services into AWS.
  • Experience with resource managers, e.g. Mesos, Kubernetes, Yarn, etc.
  • Experience with Docker—this is a big part of how we’re going to be able to scale services and give engineers the tools they need to produce and deploy them.
  • Experience with distributed messaging systems, e.g. Kafka
  • Skill with “Big Data” tools, e.g. Spark, Hive, HDFS, Scala, Hadoop


We’re always looking for folks to join our culture of passionate hobbyists! We have a tendency to nerd out on everything from LOTR and Star Wars to competitive baking to our company soccer team, the Lab Rats.
