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 strong experience in storage systems and disaster recovery.  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.   

We are a global technology company that connects the largest publishers and marketers across the globe through programmatic advertising. We ensure publishers are able to secure their bottom line so they can provide content to consumers and bring news and information to society at large. Our mission is to democratize digital advertising, all while helping marketers reach the audiences that matter most to them across digital channels. For over 20 years, IX has been known as the change agents of digital advertising – innovators who help shape how our industry reacts to new challenges and shifts in the market. As a result, we’ve been able to partner with some of the most prominent players in the media industry including Hearst, Disney, and Meredith Corporation among many others.

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
  • Advise on and implement best practices in storage systems, backup, disaster recovery and business continuity
  • 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:

  • Our Boston office is in a beautiful, modern space that’s just steps away from South Station and Chinatown. And the views outside our 30th-floor windows are stunning.
  • You’ll get to build the culture for a fast-moving team, which is receiving tons of investment and support from across the whole company.
  • The bar for talent is very high at IX. We’ve hired an exceptionally good team, with experts from across the ad tech industry, whom you’ll love working with and learning from.
  • Excellent healthcare benefits (health, dental, and vision) at NO expense to employees
  • $50 dollar monthly allowance to the gym/health club of your choice
  • Other competitive benefits, including 401(K), maternity/paternity leave, and a fantastic vacation policy
