Solid impact
While we have infrastructure monitoring in place, we believe that adding a dedicated DevOps Engineer will enable us to enhance development processes even further. We're looking for a professional who will bring fresh ideas and think of things that we haven't.

Professional development
Depending on how fast you pick things up, you'll be able to help shape your career path by demonstrating your aptitude and interests. For example, you may do some development in Ansible if you have the experience. You might also help Professional Services and Operations team with troubleshooting.

Great culture in a new space
Across AMAG you'll find a collaborative culture, and our move to Chelmsford provided an opportunity to reinforce that. We expect to have about 40 or more people in this office, almost all focused on development. We run flat and promote an entrepreneurial spirit.

We partner with a wide variety of customers, helping them solve unique security and access concerns. You'll have occasion to interact directly with them.

We know there will be a learning curve as you get to know our business and technologies, but we'll look to you to get up to speed as quickly as possible. Meanwhile, you should be able to leverage your knowledge of DevOps tools and languages to start contributing right away.
