Senior Devops Engineer

Provo, Utah

Believe it or not, the fastest growing payment processor in the country is right here in North Provo. BlockChyp is now one of the top 75 payment processors in the country and growing exponentially. We’re beefing up our North Provo engineering team and need a Senior Devops Engineer so our CTO can finally go on vacation at some point. This is your chance to work with the most modern tech stack in payments for small town Main Street retailers who desperately need and appreciate what you do.

This is a devops role that offers plenty of challenges, but without the hassle of babysitting and propping up legacy systems. Our systems run as autoscaling Docker Containers in Amazon ECS and use lots of Amazon services including Aurora, DynamoDB, ElastiCache, Elastic Search, and KMS. We manage it all using Cloud Formation and Troposphere. Our systems process millions per day in payment transactions through a fleet of thousands of payment terminals running our custom firmware and telemetry software. Our proprietary code generation system supports open source SDKs for nine different computer languages. In short, you’ll get to do cool stuff with a minimum of corporate nonsense while the company grows under you. If you’re a bad culture fit for big tech, you’ll probably fit in just fine here.

The role is a full time on site position with competitive salary, generous benefits, and a stock options package. You’ll enjoy a break room stocked with snacks and beverages; a team divided on the merits of LaCroix and strangely obsessed with putting Mule Sauce on everything; and work with a CTO who will explain Elliptic Curve Diffie Hellman in detail and at length to anyone foolish enough to ask about it. And if you love MacBooks, this job is for you, because they’re basically mandatory for development due to the firmware build chain. WSL just ain’t there yet.

Required Qualifications:
  • Four year degree in Computer Science, related field, or equivalent experience.
  • 10+ years total software engineering experience.
  • 3+ years experience working in a DevOps role managing AWS containerized infrastructure.
  • 10+ years experience working with server side applications written in Go or another modern open source language like Python, Ruby, C++, Java, or Rust.
  • 2+ years experience working with applications deployed to Docker or Linux.
Nice To Haves:

  • Splunk
  • Elastic Search
  • NodeJS for front end build toolchains.
  • Vue.js or React
  • Embedded programming and firmware development. (BusyBox Linux, etc)

  • F5 BigIP
  • Cisco IOS
  • Elliptic Curve Encryption
  • Blockchain development. (Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc)
  • Terraform
