Senior DevOps Engineer



Software Engineering
Remote · United States
Posted on Saturday, September 23, 2023

Company Summary

Bugcrowd is the world’s #1 crowdsourced security company. Our award-winning platform combines actionable, contextual intelligence with the skill and experience of the world’s most elite hackers to help leading organizations solve security challenges, protect customers, and make the digitally connected world a safer place.

Job Summary

You can imagine that managing the infrastructure for our platform is challenging since our own security is always front and center. Are you an experienced DevOps Engineer that is looking to lead a team and mentor junior colleagues to move our platform forward while keeping it safe and secure? Are you lazy enough to want to automate everything to make your own job easier, reduce developer friction and optimize the software development life cycle? Is security a second nature for you - either offensive or defensive (e.g., red or blue team experience)? We’d love to talk with you!

We are looking for somebody who’s either remote in the US or San Francisco-based for our small but growing agile infrastructure team. You’ll be part of an international, highly engaged and technical group that is well-versed in building enterprise-ready and extremely secure software systems. Our core values of “simple is strong, respect is king, build it like you own it and think like a hacker” should resonate with you. Furthermore, you should have:

  • At least five years of professional devops experience
  • Fluent in AWS and Terraform; experience with Linux administration, CI/CD pipelines, containers and virtualization
  • Preferably experience with the infrastructure around MLOps: model registries, feature stores, training pipelines, etc.
  • Any leadership experience is a plus

We use a lot of different technologies, so the more of the following list you know, the better. In no particular order: AWS, Docker, ECS, git, GitHub, CloudWatch, DataDog, Node.js, Python, Bash, Terraform, Kafka, Postgres, Sagemaker. Ruby, Go, Javascript and Kotlin are languages you'll typically encounter here, so feeling comfortable with at least one of those will help a lot.

What you'll be doing:

  • Support our engineering and data science teams to deploy and run successfully in our service-oriented architecture; focussed on security and compliance.
  • Monitor and maintain our infrastructure to ensure continuous availability of our platform
  • Drive longer term projects to increase infrastructure efficiency, remove developer friction and support platform evolution.

We are looking for somebody with:

  • Experience in more than one language, preferably Ruby, Go, Javascript, and/or Kotlin
  • Knowledge of infrastructure and cloud (AWS & Terraform)
  • Experience in data and event buses, streaming data (especially in the Kafka ecosystem)
  • Containers like Docker
  • Experience with DevOps – DBs, pipelines, monitoring, deployment, etc.


  • At Bugcrowd, we understand that diversity in the workplace is vital to a company’s success and growth. We strive to make sure that people are included and have a sense of being part of making Bugcrowd not only a great product but a great place to work.
  • We regularly hear from both customers and researchers that Bugcrowd feels like a family, and we strive to maintain that internally as well.
  • Our team consists of a broad range of people: musicians, adventure sports junkies, nature lovers, parents, cereal enthusiasts, night owls, cyclists, artists—you get the point.

At Bugcrowd, we are solving security threats and vulnerabilities that are relevant to everyone, therefore we believe solving these problems takes all kinds of backgrounds. We value the perspectives and experiences people from underrepresented backgrounds bring. We are a supportive & collaborative team who understand that reaching Bugcrowd’s potential depends on the happiness of the employee.
