At Kenzan, our team of doers, thinkers, and problem solvers is relentlessly focused on helping you innovate. We’ve been pushing the envelope in the cloud engineering, platform development, and agile methodologies spaces for more than a decade. We believe that better thinking plus better technology yields better results. We are truly collaborative consultants and our core values are kindness and excellence

We have an opportunity for a Platform Engineer at Kenzan who will create cloud infrastructure, platforms, and CI/CD pipelines that take projects from development to production.

What have you been doing?

You have been working for several years as a Cloud Platform Engineer, preferably in Azure and/or AWS. You’ve implemented Cloud Landing Zones before as well as migrated workloads. You probably aren’t an architect but through experience have definite design opinions you’re eager to share.

Security is always in the front of your mind and you are very conscious of Zero-trust security principles. Since you realize manual work can be a security risk - and just because you dislike manual work - you’re obsessively on the hunt for opportunities to automate everything possible. This includes building cloud infrastructure itself so you use infrastructure-as-code tooling like Terraform, Ansible, or cloud specific tooling like Cloud Formation or ARM Templates. Scripting in Python, Javascript or Go is something you do frequently.

Most importantly, you start work in the morning thinking of ways to improve - improve your skills as well as improve the systems you are working on. A focus on continuous improvement is a core Kenzan principle, and we hope you share it with us. If this sounds like you, let’s talk!

Skills we are looking for:

(If you have a lot of these skills, but not all of them, please still apply. We love to teach those who are willing to learn.)

  • Advanced knowledge of modern scripting or programming languages such as Javascript, Python, or Go
  • Deep understanding of Terraform and Infrastructure as Code (IaC) best practices
  • Strong working knowledge of using Git for code management
  • Advanced experience building, installing & configuring software, infrastructure and services:
    • Compiling and building software with Maven, Gradle, or Node
  • Experience with continuous integration (CI) tools such as Gitlab, Jenkins, Bamboo, Nexus, Artifactory
  • Experience writing and building automation for AWS IaaS, PaaS services including EMR, Glue, Kinesis, Firehose, s3, sftp, and Athena
  • Experience working in an agile development environment
  • Enjoyment of identifying ways to improve while also being team-oriented

What you can expect from us. We offer competitive salary, health, vision and dental benefits, and a 401K plan among other benefits like a $2k annual learning stipend, pet insurance and paid parental leave. Join our collaborative working environment with everything you need to be your best.

  • Mentorship, and opportunities to grow and learn
  • Collaboration with experienced colleagues
  • A supportive and non-competitive community
  • Best-of-breed tools including your choice of machine
  • A commitment to your professional growth, including coursework and professional development resources

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
