Method is a global design and engineering consultancy founded in 1999. We believe that innovation should be meaningful, beautiful and human. We craft practical, powerful digital experiences that improve lives and transform businesses. Our teams [based in New York, Charlotte, Atlanta, London, and remote] work with a wide range of organizations in many industries, including Healthcare, Financial Services, Retail, Automotive, Aviation, and Professional Services.

The Method DevOps practice works with clients to help them deliver value more reliably, rapidly, and securely.  We are vendor and technology agnostic, though we focus primarily on helping clients migrate to Kubernetes-based delivery models.  We care deeply about building out sustainable processes that can be 100% owned and operated by our clients once we’re gone. We accomplish this by combining mentorship, best in class technology, and a strong sense of developer empathy.  As DevOps practitioners, we also understand that while our clients typically come to us for our technical expertise, we must also be prepared to approach organizational and cultural problems in the software delivery lifecycle.

This is a client-facing, team-leading opportunity.  We are looking for an experienced engineer who has deepened and diversified their skillset with DevOps disciplines, or, moved to DevOps entirely, with experience across multiple technologies and platforms, including mobile build processes and delivery. Your role will involve a diversified blend of leadership that will include contributing as a programmer, managing infrastructure, and mentoring others.  Scripting, automation, security, and creating environments that hum and are self-healing should be strong motivators for you.  Docker and AWS experience are a must, along with Windows and Linux environments.

We generally operate with small teams working closely together on a wide variety of complex and interesting projects. Think Postgres optimization, mobile UI with React, offline-enabled responsive web applications to name a few. Our web stacks today include React, Vue.js, Angular, Rails / Sinatra, Node.js, .NET and we even have system-level languages like C/C++ and Go in production. We strongly believe in identifying underlying patterns and frameworks, and  determining the best solution for the problem.

  • Are ready to help inform “build vs. buy” decisions
  • Could field questions on topics like “DevOps,” “12 factor,” “Microservices,” “Continuous Delivery,“ or “Serverless”
