The Climate Corporation is looking for a Senior Software Engineer, Operations to build and manage world class engineering systems. In this role you will get the chance to demonstrate how security can be an enabler in infrastructure functionality, scalability, performance and reliability.

We build systems that efficiently and reliably make our technical community a better place. We are bringing state of the art technologies such as Docker into production right now. Our team’s vision is that Infrastructure Is Code, where engineers doing development can manage their cloud systems as easily as they can their code. Your challenge – should you decide to accept it – is to collaborate with us to build this better and secure world for our scientists and engineers.

  • Design, develop, and deploy systems that manage access to our infrastructure assets.
  • Collaborate with program managers and leadership to drive system requirements and delivering the maximum value to all engineering and science groups
  • Proactively identify security flaws and vulnerabilities, and conduct security reviews across the broader engineering and science organizations.
  • Evaluate the impact to the organization of current security trends, advisories, publications, and academic research. Coordinate responses as necessary across affected teams to do the right thing for our customers and our organization.
  • Exercise risk-based judgement, and to push teams to make the right security decisions and priorities.

  • Demonstrable knowledge of TCP/IP, HTTP, application security, and experience supporting multi-tier web application architectures.
  • Understanding of Software Security Architecture and Design, SDLC and the ability to clearly articulate best practices for application security
  • Experience with Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) and knowledge of Docker Containers and scheduling frameworks (e.g Kubernetes).
  • Proficiency in a Unix/Linux environment, Experience with Jenkins or other CI tools and/or familiarity with distributed data platforms (e.g. DynamoDB, Hadoop, EMR, Spark, PostGIS, ElasticSearch)
