About the Team

Mozilla’s Services Operations Team is looking for an ambitious Senior DevOps Engineer. You'll need solid Linux/UNIX skills and experience with standard web application stacks (LAMPy, Node.js, etc). You'll also need to be able to program with a deep understanding of deployment challenges. You'll be expected to provide hands-on technical engineering of our ever-growing server and application environments across multiple global data centers, and AWS. Most importantly, you'll be an integral part of the team handling the infrastructure responsible for delivering Mozilla’s back-end services (such as Add-ons and Sync) to millions of Firefox users.

As a Senior DevOps Engineer at Mozilla, you will…

  • Maintenance of our core server infrastructure which includes helping to scale our back-end services from tens to hundreds of millions of clients
  • Support, tuning, maintenance, and documentation of our operating environment including builds, code deployment, and solving problems
  • Write, maintain, and expand automation scripts, metrics and monitoring tooling, and orchestration recipes
  • Work with product engineering to ensure code is production ready
  • Collaboration with QA, Security, and Engineering for coordinated code releases
Your Professional Profile

  • Have solid scripting knowledge (shell, Python, JS).
  • Some development background with Python, JS, or Go highly preferred.
  • Configuration management and orchestration experience. Puppet experience is a plus.
  • Experience working with a cloud infrastructure. AWS experience a plus.
  • Monitoring / metrics experience, including plug-in/check script writing and modification.
  • B.S. in Computer Science would be lovely, but real-world experience is preferred.
