We’re on the search for our very first DevOps Engineer to join our growing Engineer team. As a DevOps Engineer, your impact will be felt immediately to both our users as well as internal teams. Responsible for SRE, data security, cloud infrastructure, continuous delivery, you will be collaborating closely with the engineering team on development process, architectural design, and production support. You will be expected to establish a deep understanding on our systems and continuously drive improvements on our product delivery and developer experience, whilst balancing client expectations and needs on product reliability, stability, and performance.

Currently, Yuhu operates with 2 cross functional teams comprised of designers, product owners and engineers. As a DevOps Engineer, you will be collaborating across both of these teams to continuously improve our way of work. Our current agile sprints are 2 weeks and our Engineering Team practices a service ownership model where developers remain responsible for their changes in production, and also participate in a shared on-call rotation for support.

Our current DevOps practices involve only “maintaining” of our current systems. Handled primarily by our CTO and Head of Services, we’re looking for someone who is excited to take ownership over the DevOps strategy at Yuhu. You will be given the autonomy and accountability to implement processes, workflows, tooling, all in the best interest for our internal teams and clients.

  • Promote and build automation best practices with the Engineering team for our infrastructure needs
  • Troubleshoot and work with the support team on infrastructure issues when they arise
  • Collaborate with cross-functional team leaders across engineering, product, and services departments
  • Automate the build and release of our products by implementing automation tools (CI/CD pipelines)
  • Maintain security measures though the implementation of policies and standards (SOC 2)

What will I be focus on during my first 3 months?
