DevOps Engineer

Qarik Overview 

Qarik Group, LLC is a technology consulting firm focused on combining senior-level thought leadership and expertise to help customers see further and go faster, solving big business problems.

We have a saying at Qarik that sums up our culture: ‘Greatness grows greatness.’ It reflects how we support each other by sharing expertise, experience and opportunity. One person’s insight smooths the way for another to succeed. And it’s not just about supporting each other. It’s as much about how we help our client’s businesses thrive. By using what we collectively know and mashing ideas together, breathtaking things happen. Not least of which is how your career’s journey can go further and faster than you ever imagined possible. So, if you have greatness to give, we've got the perfect place to help it grow.

About Our Clients

We work “with” our clients, not "for" them. We embrace agile instead of deliverables and milestones - establish a vision, create theme based roadmap and then execute. We work in the trenches with client's engineers to learn from each other's experiences and capabilities.

We have deep connectivity with Google and some of our clients are Google’s largest / most strategic consumers of Google Cloud. We get to work closely with both our clients and Google to ensure both organizations are working towards a common goal.

We check badges and egos at the door and bring incredible people together to achieve great outcomes. This allows people to bring their whole person to contribute to, and be part of the team. You should never feel like you have to be somebody else.

Overview of the Role

Our DevOps engineers are passionate about automatinge the heck out of everything. 

Why? If a repetitive task requires human effort, then it will likely introduce a failure at some point in the future. It is much better to create systems that let software handle the repetitive, mundane tasks so developers and engineers can focus on what is important: creating code for business outcomes.

Overall this role is 25% goal setting, architecting, planning, coaching and 75% creating, documenting, packaging and releasing code.

Typical languages are python, c++, c, java, javascript with heavy emphasis on developer productivity and build tooling like Bazel, Monorepos, etc..

  • Coach and mentor cloud engineers on how to leverage automation and techniques.
  • Drive adoption of SRE and blameless post mortem.

Other Relevant Details
