DevOps Engineer

Work on a high-performance, complex app with a great team

We're looking for an awesome DevOps engineer to join our team in Tel Aviv!

Passionate about building elegant and fun products?

Let's talk.


Do you love to create beautiful things? Do you like it when something works right, not just on the outside, but also on the inside? Do you like that feeling when millions of users depend on and love what you've created, and use it every day?


At Smore, we're passionate about creating the best possible products. We care about all the little details that make a product great. That also extends to our engineering and company culture.

Make Smore run fast and be a pleasure to develop

Over the past 3 years we’ve built Smore from nothing into a thriving site that serves over 100M requests per month to millions of monthly visitors. It’s time to take it to the next level and create a development environment and ops tools to match. You will help us get there.

  • Integrate with 3rd party monitoring and performance tools to make sure Smore is running perfectly.
  • Work in quick iterations and get things shipped.

  • At Smore, everyone has product input and is expected to care about the product's quality. Our mission is to delight our customers.
  • We're a small team, so you'll have a say in our product discussions, engineering processes and company culture.

Requirements

  • Fluent with scripting languages (Bash, Python/Ruby), especially for creating ops tools
  • Experience working in a production Linux environment
  • Experience with cloud deployments, especially Amazon AWS

About Smore

Smore is a platform for empowering small (mostly offline) businesses to start promoting themselves online. On Smore they design marketing messages called "online flyers." Just like you would spread a flyer offline, you can use Smore to promote through your mailing list, on social networks, on Craigslist, etc. You can then see your promotions' impact through a central dashboard.


Our goal is to make "promoting stuff online" super easy and effective. We believe in empowering businesses to write their own content and promote it through channels that make sense to them, while helping them build good marketing habits.


Smore now has over 750,000 users, 1.5M flyers, and around $70k/month in revenue.
