  • Job Description

    Zapproved is hiring a Site Reliability Engineer to join our growing legal software company headquartered in Portland, Oregon. At Zapproved we are 100% cloud, leveraging an array of AWS services from EC2 to SQS. You will be part of a team focused on building, measuring, and refining the systems infrastructure that runs our software. You will engage with teams across engineering, solving problems once with software rather than repeatedly with manual tasks. The ideal candidate will be collaborative, enthusiastic and care deeply about connecting the systems from code to hosting.

    Who We Are:

    At Zapproved, we have ambitious goals, but simple values:  

    • Be Real
    • Be Our Best
    • Be Inclusive
    • Get It Done

    We are a team that acts with honesty, integrity, and transparency. We take risks, stay humble, and are not afraid to fail.


    What You'll Be Doing:

    In this role you will...

    • Write code that defines cloud infrastructure in reusable, composable building blocks
    • Measure and improve performance, uptime, cost effectiveness, stability and other operational characteristics of the distributed systems underlying Zapproved applications
    • Collaborate, educate and work across teams to streamline and scale building and shipping software through improved tooling, automation, and communication
    • Design automation and processes that reduce work and speed development, and reflect our principle focus on security and ability to demonstrate compliance


    What You’ll Need:

    You might be a good fit for the team if...

    • 2+ years of professional experience writing production software in Python, Go, C#, Java, or another major programming language, and are strong in scripting tools like PowerShell or Bash
    • Experience using Terraform, Ansible, SaltStack or other Infrastructure as Code tools to provision and manage complex systems
    • Experience in building and maintaining CI/CD pipelines for release automation of application code and infrastructure
    • You have built, deployed, and hosted applications in a major cloud provider such as AWS, GCE, or Azure, and understand the underlying technologies that make this possible, including DNS, Load Balancing, Content Distribution Networks, VPC and others
    • You are familiar with git and understand the role that version control and effective, positive code review has in building great software
    • You have a strong understanding of the software development life cycle, and often find yourself seeking and sharing ideas on how to make it better

    What Would Be Nice:

    • You are equally adept on Windows, Mac and Linux
    • You are capable of building and debugging large-scale distributed systems
    • You have experience building software that follows design patterns such as Adapter and Repository
    • You are data-driven and analytical in your approach to solving problems

    We are interested in every qualified candidate with authorization to work in the United States. However, this position is not eligible for visa sponsorship.


    How to Apply:

    Feeling inspired? We want to meet you! Please provide your resume, cover letter, and (if applicable) a link to a portfolio of your work. We read cover letters to better understand your skills, motivations, and what makes you tick - so feel free to dispense with the formalities and share with us why this seems like the best opportunity for you.
