Automations Engineer (SF)

San Francisco, CA | Engineering

Job Description

Disqus is looking for an individual to drive our automated tools and systems.  At Disqus, we believe in empowering developers not through process, but through tooling.  You will be driving the advancement of our build systems, including our testing and deployment infrastructure, as well as implementing new solutions to constantly improve the quality and time-to-release of various products.


Key Responsibilities

  • Take charge of the continuous deployment and integration systems
  • Develop and implement new systems to improve automated testing
  • Drive product design around continuous deployment infrastructure
  • Identify additional areas suitable for automation and subsequently automate them

What We're Looking For

  • 2+ years of experience in infrastructure, operations, or equivalent
  • Extensive knowledge of build systems (we use Jenkins) and automated tools
  • Knowledge of shell scripting and Python
  • Great communication skills
  • Ability to get everyone on the same page quickly and effectively

Desired Skills

  • A relevant university degree is great, but we care more about industry experience and knowledge
  • Programming experience (Python, C, Java, Ruby).  You will be working directly with engineers to find holes in our automated tools
  • Previous work experience in a startup environment
