DevOps Engineer Job in Toronto, Ontario Canada

As a key member of our DevOps team you will:
  • Innovate. We’re in the middle of transforming our system architecture and processes into a continuously-delivered services approach, which means you’ll have a hand in shaping the way that we build and ship software. The DevOps team keeps our tooling and processes up-to-date with our evolving needs as we scale out both the user-base and the engineering team.
  • Collaborate. DevOps at Top Hat provides the tooling and automation needed to enable a DevOps culture across our organization. This means working closely with our development and product teams to understand their bottlenecks, and to mentor them on operational ownership.
  • Improve. DevOps helps improve our internal tooling (instrumentation, dashboards, deployment automation), as well as the infrastructural availability of our production services. We run blame-free post-mortems to drive improvements after incidents. We keep up with the latest Amazon services to help scale operations and better achieve high-availability. (We make heavy use of CloudFormation, Packer, and Ansible for immutable infrastructure; Jenkins 2.0 and Spinnaker for pipelines; Docker for CI, but eyeing it for production. Our backend is a REST API built with Django, with Node.js for real-time. React on the frontend.)
Where are you right now?
You are designing and developing backend systems using a variety of technologies. You love what you do but you are seeking more professional and personal satisfaction. You want to join a fast growing company with purpose where you can see the difference your work is making. You are also looking to make a major contribution to direction-setting decisions as part of a senior development team.
Some of the reasons we attract great people:
  • We are tackling interesting technology challenges such as real-time messaging to thousands of clients with guaranteed delivery over poor network conditions in difficult networking environments.
  • The impact you will make extends beyond just the success of the company but the prosperity of the education environment.
  • We work in a collaborative team-oriented atmosphere where our developers can be found “swarming” an issue or pairing up to work on a tricky piece of code.
  • We have a very good business and strong revenue growth. You will be exposed to all aspects of a business past start-up mode and scaling quickly.
  • We’re just the right size. Top Hat isn’t a megacorp nor are we a small ‘cowboy’ shop. We are a great fit for individuals that want stability but don’t want to be a number.
  • We offer mentorship and meaningful work. Leadership opportunities. Whether it’s leading people, products, or projects, our growth translates into new positions for those that are motivated.
