At Index Exchange, our online advertising exchange manages billions of transactions everyday. Hundreds of premium publishers bet their success on our reliability, security and performance.  While Ops is a defined team, we believe that DevOps is a way of thinking and we are looking for candidates who can seamlessly work across our Engineering teams to bring complex and challenging projects to fruition. Reporting to the Operations Engineering Manager, we are looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer to join Index Exchange and help us continue to refine and mature our Ops tool set and DevOps approach.  You will be working in our Operations team to build tools in key areas such as server provisioning, continuous integration and deployment, monitoring, alerting, and container orchestration.

The ideal candidate will have experience in highly-available production systems.  You will coordinate with Engineers to provide solutions. We’ve gathered exceptional talent on this team and your ability to offer both guidance and technical expertise to enable the development of fellow team members is a huge plus.   

Here’s what we want:

  • Facilitator: It’s essential that you can relay information and ideas effectively both within and across different teams. While we place a huge premium on technical skill, we value just as much your ability to work with other people
  • Adaptable: Our industry moves fast and we need you to keep up and adapt. Acting as a DevOps Engineer, you have the ability to prioritize tasks, often against competing scope and timelines
  • Technical: A strong foundation in Operations, and experience in solving complex problems and building solutions (including CI/CD, real-time monitoring, production issues, etc.)
  • Rigorous: We design and manage massive, globally distributed systems that handle billions of transactions a day - your approach and solutions need to be thorough, scalable and ironclad

Here’s what you’ll be doing:

  • Utilize your understanding of DevOps methodologies and design patterns to positively impact the development, deployment, and introspection processes
  • Seize upon your experience and knowledge to help guide and mentor colleagues
  • Write code in Go, Python, Bash, and Perl to create automation tools
  • Build on your basic Ops tool kit including tech like Ansible, GitLab CI, Vagrant, Docker, Kubernetes, Kafka, Elasticsearch, InfluxDB, and Grafana
  • Working with Big Data tools including Hadoop, HDFS, Spark, and HBase
  • Troubleshoot and fix problems with build and deployment automation 

Why you’ll love working here:

  • Work out of our Engineering HQ in midtown Toronto
  • Open concept office designed to facilitate communication and collaboration
  • Lunch catered in daily
  • Flexible hours and a relaxed dress code
  • Annual celebrations (Summer BBQ, Holiday Party, All Hands, Hack Days) and milestone outings
  • Paid vacation, unlimited sick days, and 5% RRSP matching
  • 100% company paid comprehensive medical, dental and paramedical plan
  • Flexible health spending account
  • Generous and flexible annual wellness subsidy for gym memberships and classes
