Cloud Operations Network Engineer

We are looking for a Networking Engineer for our Cloud Engineering organization to bridge the gap from our physical to cloud network. Cloud Operations enables SimpliSafe Software Platform teams to deliver more value to our customers and stakeholders through promotion of best practices, coaching of the values of DevOps, and creation of tools that support them. We deliver tools and information in order to help teams build better solutions, delivered faster, with fewer defects, that secure the safety of tens of millions of people.

We are looking for a unique individual who has both a networking background and a strong DevOps/Cloud mindset.  If you're well-versed with Cisco and/or Juniper and want to join a multi-talented DevOps team, we want to hear from you. The person we are looking for will keep us connected, secure, PCI compliant, and highly-available across multiple platforms and geographies, while providing visibility into our configuration and traffic patterns.

In this role, you will be responsible for applying our core principles of automation, reproducibility, scalability, testability, and security to our network infrastructure. You will work with cross-functional teams to evangelize and develop the same principles throughout the Engineering organization.

At Simplisafe, we place an emphasis on a ‘no-ego’, collaborative culture. From the top down, we all work together to solve the difficult challenges within the home security and IoT industry. We have recently been named in Built In Boston’s ‘Best Places to Work in 2019’ list and in Wealthfront’s ‘2019 Career Launching Companies’ list.
