SecondMarket's Technology Team is looking for a highly motivated and talented entry level systems operations engineer to join our growing team in Manhattan. We are leveraging the latest and most exciting technologies and we need the best and brightest people to help us to create the most advanced financial systems in the world.
Systems Operations Engineers work with the Engineering team to help ensure the delivery of high quality software components. In addition, they are responsible for developing code to configure and scale our infrastructure using modern tools and techniques and to support 24/7/365 availability of the production application stack.
What you?ll do
You will be responsible for keeping SecondMarket?s site up and scaling it into the future
You will maintain and grow our infrastructure with Chef ? ?Infrastructure as Code?
You will utilize Amazon Web Services products to lay the foundation for our applications
You will configure and maintain a myriad of open source software packages: Mongo, Redis, Graphite, Logstash, etc
You will create, enhance and execute our scripts for automated deployments
You will work hand in hand with our Engineering team to continuously deploy and test our applications
You will contribute back to the open source community
What you?ve done
B.S. / B.A. in Computer Science or equivalent experience
You have 2+ years or equivalent experience supporting a 24/7 web based shop
You understand virtualization concepts ? AWS/EC2 experience required
You have a working knowledge of source control management software ? Git is a plus
You have Linux/UNIX systems administration experience ? CentOS a plus
You know your way around a bash script
You have fundamental database concepts. Ex selects, joins, query tuning
Knowledge of CI concepts and Jenkins software a plus
You know how to be on call and don?t mind an occasional 3am wake-up call if an AWS AZ decides to take a dive
You are a team player with positive attitude
Why you?ll love it
Think Finance: Brooks Brothers, trading floors, Bloomberg terminals, Wall Street, and cash come to mind, right? Now think Technology: Mac Computers, t-shirts, Silicon Alley, exercise balls, and there may or may not be a kegerator involved.
These seemingly opposite worlds collide to make up SecondMarket?s slightly schizophrenic but loveable DNA. Working at SecondMarket and being a part of the team means that on any given day, you may be in a meeting with a ?reformed? Wall Street investment banker, who also happens to be our founder and CEO, Barry Silbert, and your next meeting may consist of hearing about the latest technologies with our extremely talented engineering team.
We?re headquartered in New York City, and we all have a similar New Yorker?s mindset: fast-paced, relentless and dynamic. The working environment here is extremely agile, and we?re not afraid to innovate, re-create, or pivot quickly, which is where you?ll see us skew towards Silicon Valley/Alley more than Wall Street. Most importantly, we work really hard, but we play just as hard. And as different as our backgrounds may be, all of us at SecondMarket live by the same core values:
Restore and renew trust in the financial markets
Be intellectually curious
Be passionate about your work
Be a mentor
Ultimately, we all believe that we are building and creating something extraordinary. And we?re having a lot of fun doing it.
