Join our team.

About the Role

Our team (Cloud Platform) serves as a mixed-role support and engineering team, supporting and building automation to help enable developer success across all our brands and markets. We strive to provide modern, secure, scalable, and approachable automation solutions to engineering and infrastructure teams across the organization, and to help support these teams in adoption of any automation solutions.

We seek to enable and facilitate GapTech’s transformation toward Agile and DevOps by driving change in how GapTech makes use of cloud resources and associated developer toolchains.

We value collaboration and encourage working together (aka pairing) on tasks, but we don’t require it. We highly value the philosophy of continuous improvement – to always seek to improve what we do and how we do it.

This role would be best-served by an engineer with a few years of hands-on experience in our core skillsets, with the ability to learn quickly, the motivation and drive to take ownership of a given work effort, and a balance between the pride to make reasonable attempts to fill-in missing knowledge and the humility to consult other team members as needed.

We consider a person to be proficient when they are comfortable working in a given tool or skillset day-to-day with minimal supervision.

What You'll Do

We consider a person to be proficient when they are comfortable working in a given tool or skillset day-to-day with minimal supervision. 

We consider a person to be familiar when they are aware of a given set of concepts but will have to fill in implementation or usage information as they go.

  • Proficiency with scripting (e.g. Python, Bash, PowerShell) 
  • Proficiency with Git (and, ideally, GitHub) 
  • Proficiency with Infrastructure as Code patterns & tools (e.g. Terraform, GitOps) 
  • Familiarity with Linux systems 
  • Familiarity with cloud platforms (pref. Azure) 
  • Appreciation and preference for open-source software 

Who You Are


What you’ll do 

  • Support internal customers in adopting CI/CD & automation (especially regarding Kubernetes) 
  • Support internal clusters through adoption of Infrastructure as Code 
  • Work with the team to develop features and improvements targeting cloud platform automation (e.g. cost optimization, integrations, automation enhancements, proof-of-concept/prototype work) 
  • Work with cross-team, cross-discipline project teams to develop automation-related features and improvements in support of project goals and to otherwise serve as a stakeholder in the Scrum team 
  • Perform diagnostics and root cause analysis to help understand failures and ensure resolution
