Contribute improvements, features, and fixes to our tools
Have a career plan aligned with your needs and objectives, as well as our team’s.
How We Work
Product teams at Devex have a lot of autonomy and are expected to work on problems instead of pre-defined solutions. When addressing business problems or working towards company goals, the team is involved early on in the ideation process.
We follow the Scrum methodology and work in two-week-sprints with the usual elements like daily stand-ups, sprint planning, backlog refinement, and retrospectives. We deploy our code to production nearly every day and are aiming to reach continuous deployment within a year.
The Infrastructure guild works with another parallel sprint to maintain, update, and improve our platforms. The guild dedicates many of our resources to these tasks, while supporting the rest of the Product team.
AWS, Docker, and Kubernetes are the main technologies we use, along with Jenkins for some job execution. For monitoring, we use Prometheus and Grafana, along with Appsignal for APM, and ELK for log analysis.
As for the application, Ruby is the main programming language for the back-end, using the Ruby on Rails and grape frameworks. The front-end is a mix of Ruby on Rails, AngularJS, and React. Nearly all data is stored in a relational database (PostgreSQL), cached by Redis, and searched over via Elasticsearch.
What are we looking for?
Here are the indicators that this could be a good role for you:
3 to 5 years of experience in maintaining platforms and systems using IaC approach and SCM tools
Some development experience building tools to support the work of others
Strong skills in written and spoken English
