  • Serve as the champion/SME for DevOps standards, patterns and models.

  • Drive design and implementation of CI/CD across all Scrum teams.

  • Provide coaching and mentoring in DevOps best practices.

  • Bring new, emerging, and innovative concepts in DevOps to Higher Logic.


  • Experience architecting and operating a SaaS application at scale using the AWS platform.

  • Experience writing Infrastructure as Code (Terraform/CloudFormation/CDK).

  • Experience with Microsoft platforms (.Net, IIS, SQL Server).

  • Experience with monitoring tools (Splunk, ELK, Datadog).

  • Experience with CI/CD tools and architecture.

  • Experience with Git based workflows.

  • Demonstrated ability to deliver applications and cloud infrastructure in an agile environment.

  • Experience leading and mentoring senior, mid-level, and junior engineers.
