Our award winning culture, values, and community are shaped by real people doing really extraordinary work. 
Ditch your daily commute, say goodbye to the typical nine-to-five, and embrace a new way of working at Automox.
As a Cloud Data Engineer you will collaborate with Product, Architecture, Engineering, SRE, and SecOps teams in delivering innovative solutions in an agile, multifaceted environment.  An ideal candidate has experience as a Data Engineer with a strong Cloud background (e.g. AWS).

      • Partner with Automox's Engineering teams to identify, instrument, and measure the performance of data services that impact Automox's customers. 
      • Learn and grow your skills while working with new and exciting technologies


      • 6+ years of experience as a DBA, Database Engineer, or similar role is required.
      • Experience with data management systems: Relational Databases (e.g. PostgreSQL), Event Streaming Platforms (e.g. Kafka), Key-Value Stores (e.g. Redis) is required.
      • Experience with database load balancer/proxy tools (e.g PGPool, PGBouncer)
      • A cloud certification (such as AWS cloud certification) is highly desirable.
      • Familiarity with Cloud technologies such as RDS, Redshift, DynamoDB, EC2, S3, CLI, SDK, or equivalent cloud services.
      • Exposure to a fast pace environment with focus on a growth stage product and scaled cloud infrastructure setup.
      • Proficiency in coding in SQL, SPARQL, and/or other no-SQL data languages
      • Should have worked in Agile methodology.
      • Comfortable working outside and inside the database (setting up, optimizing, etc)
      • Able to define and optimize data structures and recommend optimal techniques for data processing
      • Experience deploying Database migrations in a safe, automated way.
      • Solid understanding of all software development process phases, from initial requirements to operational support.
      • Excellent problem-solving skills and experience with Production Incident Management / Root Cause analysis.
      • Experience with important distributed systems service, including supporting Database Production Infrastructure with 24x7x365 support responsibilities.
      • Have outstanding verbal and written communication skills and excellent speaking-listening-writing skills, attention to detail, proactive self-starter.
