Job Type Full-time  


TEKsystems is the leading provider of software to the public sector, and they are looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer to join the Cloud Operations vertical within their DevOps team. This person is going to be working heavily with AWS as they're modernizing their applications and moving them into the cloud, using Terraform to create modules to help build and deploy their products, and create/optimize CI/CD pipelines to deploy new products or upgrade and patch existing products. Any scripting/development experience will be very useful since this person will be working closely with the engineering teams, product teams, etc and the more they can understand about Tyler Tech's applications themselves, the better. Azure experience would be nice to have since one of their most popular applications is hosted in Azure, but this is not necessary.
The DevOps team is split into 3 verticals -- Release Engineering, Security Operations, and Cloud Operations (this person will be a part of Cloud Operations). The DevOps team has a stand up every morning and then each individual works with a project team that is centered around a specific deliverable, either an entirely new product or a new feature of an existing product, and each engineer focuses on 1-2 major projects at a time. Because of this, the Senior DevOps Engineer needs to be able to work independently as they will be the only DevOps Engineer involved in those specific projects (they can of course ask questions to their peers as needed, but should be able to primarily stand on their own).
The 2 projects this person will be focused on up front are a Data Archiving project and a Next Generation TEXT 911 suite of products that allows people to text 911 rather than call, send their location instantly, and send pictures and videos of their situation to allow for better assistance quicker. The projects this person is driving are going to have significant impacts on people all across the country, creating very meaningful work.
