Wanted: Peak-Performing DevOps Engineer
Are you an ascending DevOps engineer seeking the summit of software development and deployment? Then consider joining us at Prototyze’s Goa based team.
We need a DevOps engineer with strong Amazon Web Services and Heroku experience. You will create cloud formation templates to build AWS services that support our node.js, django and other LAMP/MEAN stack apps. You’ll need to build the whole stack ELBs to databases, and then move and launch our services. And you’ll need to help guide us through this process in a pretty short outage window.
In this role, you’ll work collaboratively with software engineering to deploy and operate our systems. Help automate and streamline our operations and processes. Build and maintain tools for deployment, monitoring and operations. And troubleshoot and resolve issues in our dev, test and production environments.
Required skills –
- Strong background in Linux Administration in production environments.
- Experience with automation/configuration management using either Puppet, Chef or an equivalent.
- Ability to use a wide variety of open source technologies and cloud services (experience with AWS is required)
- Strong experience with SQL and MySQL (NoSQL experience is a plus, too, since we also use MongoDB)
- A working understanding of code and script (Python, PHP, Perl and/or Ruby)
- Knowledge of best practices and IT operations in an always-up, always-available service
About Prototyze Services
Prototyze is an incubator, currently working in stealth mode on building mobile technology centered businesses in multiple sectors such as Financial Services, Healthcare & Medical and Training & Learning. Two ventures catalyzed by it (Mobiefit and HandyTrain) have already been incorporated as independent companies with independent teams, investment and trajectory.
One venture as an example of the incubation approach of Prototyze is HandyTrain, which is just incorporated as an independent company. HandyTrain is a mobile platform for corporate training that slashes costs and time, especially for programs involving hundreds of people across scattered geographies. As one instance, HandyTrain was used to train 2,100 sales by Microsoft. With remarkable results (143% better test scores) and glowing client testimonials. We have a strategic investment in HandyTrain by Aptech, a listed global training company (7 million people trained across 28 years, 1,300 centres of learning across 40+ countries, 100,000 people being trained on any given day) to amplify our strengths. See details here.
The second venture MobieFit already has a soft-launch of its app, FirstRun on the Android Playstore, and a major launch on May 19, with Gul Panag as the co-founder. Details here, here and here. The FirstRun site is here, and other social assets include the blog, Facebook and Twitter.
Prototyze is the product-centered, digital economy evolution of an entrepreneurial ecosystem established across years. It’s a significant initiative of an organization whose companies include ScreenRoot which focusses on human: screen interaction design (mobile apps, web applications, intranets…); Synapse which specializes in business communication, Visual JuJu that’s centered on multimedia, Starving Artist Films which makes films designed for online media. A non-product centric company is Junoon Ventures with brands such as Zaki, which focuses on custom art for individuals, corporate and architects, Gulnar Soaps, that formulates and markets natural hand-made soaps, and Shirkshop that focuses on open source furniture design.
Each of these is profitable and are led by home-grown entrepreneurial leadership. They have for over a decade worked on projects with global clients such as Microsoft, Sun Pharma, Pizza Hut, Hyatt Hotels, McKinsey, IBM, Airtel, Hewlett Packard, KFC, Kotak, Goldman Sachs and many others.
