You will be part of our Nuxeo Cloud Team and work with experienced engineers and architects to maintain, improve, update, and extend the current automation.

As the Nuxeo Platform evolves constantly: continuous delivery, automation, testing and scaling of our cloud platform and stack will change as well.

Nuxeo Cloud Team
The Nuxeo Cloud Team builds and manages the infrastructure needed to host applications built on the Nuxeo content services platform. We use AWS, Terraform, Ansible, and Jenkins to deploy and update in a completely automated way:

  • Platform builds
  • Stack deployment
  • Stack configuration
  • Initial application deployment
  • Rolling Application updates
  • Blue/Green environment promotion
  • Stack and cluster scale out and scale down

The Automation stack comes with the ‘battery included’: Monitoring and Log aggregation with DataDog, intrusion and threat detection with ThreatStack, high availability and disaster recovery architectures, multiple backup strategies, and our own homebrew sauce for additional security and automation tooling.

The deployed stack relies on the Nuxeo Open Source Platform and associated stack technologies including MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Redis, Kafka, Elasticsearch, and relies on many AWS technologies and services including EC2, EBS, EFS, S3, CloudFront, RDS, Route 53, AWS IAM and KMS, ElastiCache, Snowball, and Lambda.

  • Minimum of 2-3 years of experience in a similar role
  • Good knowledge of and experience with AWS architecture and services
  • Real life experience with Jenkins, Terraform, Ansible or similar tools
  • Fluent in AWS IAM and a sensibility for security topics
  • Experience with Docker, Kubernetes, OpenShift

In an ideal world, you will have:

  • Allergic reaction to do the same thing twice without automating or coding
  • Critical attention to detail, thoroughness, and documentation
  • Willingness to learn and upgrade technical skills
  • Ability to work in a distributed team
  • Knowledge or experience with:
    • MongoDB or a similar NoSQL technology
    • SOLR, Lucene, Elasticsearch, or related search technology
    • Apache Kafka or similar message queuing technology
    • Redis
    • PostgreSQL
    • Unix/Linux shell and shell scripting
