Principal Engineer - Cloud Platform Engineering

at Puppet, Inc. Remote, North America

Hi, I’m Diego Lapiduz, Sr. Director of Engineering at Puppet,

I’m seeking a Principal Engineer for Cloud Platform Engineering to join our team and help us grow our cloud practice. At Puppet, we are always in an evolution process and we are looking to build our world-class cloud engineering team to help manage our cloud-based services. We are looking for a seasoned practitioner that has a good mix of technical experience with cloud management automation, security, and resource optimization.

At Puppet, we value innovation and allow for new ideas to incubate, as we look for new opportunities to better serve our customers. We work in an agile, iterative fashion, breaking up large ideas into small, concrete chunks that can be implemented quickly to deliver value or further learning. We work collectively, allowing us to accomplish far more as a  team than could be accomplished individually.

You will:

  • Set the cloud adoption strategy and help teams adopt it.
  • Lead the management of our team’s cloud infrastructure, setting the right policies and automation for efficient and secure cloud usage.
  • Help develop an application platform to run services in cloud environments.
  • Share knowledge with other developers at Puppet through pairing, code reviews, hack days, and company-wide demos.
  • Mentor peers through their professional development.

You are:

  • Passionate—with a love for solving user problems with software. 
  • A team player—who is collaborative and enjoys learning from and sharing knowledge with other developers in a team environment.
  • Curious—with a drive to learn and understand.

You have:

  • 5+ years working with at least one public cloud provider (AWS or GCP preferred).
  • Broad technical experience and up-to-date industry knowledge around cloud management and cloud security best practices.
  • 5+ years of experience with automation provisioning scripting (i.e. Terraform).
  • Expertise in scalable architectures that work from 0 to multiple millions of users.
  • Expertise in security automation and security policies (i.e. AWS Software Control Policies)
  • Expertise in security monitoring of cloud environments and implementation of event management solutions (i.e SIEM on Elastic)
  • Knowledge of software development lifecycle and experience with Source Control Management (i.e. Git & GitHub)

We are hiring at various experience levels and we’re particularly interested in having a diverse team with a broad set of skills and viewpoints. If this seems like your dream job, but you’re not sure if you qualify, apply anyway!

*Visa Sponsorship

Please note, this position is not eligible for visa sponsorship.
