Join us

Join a small, 100% remote company focused on helping others with Kubernetes and DevOps technologies! Read below to learn about what we're looking for and how to apply.

Calling all Senior Kubernetes DevOps

We're looking for experienced Dev/Sec/Ops/SRE folk to join our team, helping our clients navigate and implement the Cloud-Native Vision™ (not really trademarked)

Passionate about K8s, Terraform, and all things Linux? Do you love applying cloud-native technologies to gracefully solve new problems? Enjoy creating systems that simplify application developers' lives? Do you enjoy wrangling AWS, GCP and Azure?

(Azure? Really?)

Then read on!

The Day to Day

As a consulting company, there's almost never such a thing as a normal day.

When on an engineering engagement, you could be wrangling Terraform configurations, tweaking Kubernetes clusters, crafting CI/CD pipelines, managing Cloud Foundry with BOSH, writing custom controllers in Go, or APIs in Python. Each client and each project is different, and that's what makes the job so enjoyable.

In-between engagements, and during our 20% time, we work on open source tooling, write about our experiences in our journal, or research the latest technologies for our workshops.

Let your Good Light Shine.

Clients come to us because of our incredibly deep Linux, DevOps and Kubernetes experience. They look to us to bring a steady judgement born out of our past injuries.

Our people join us because they want a chance to put that experience and judgement to work in challenging projects. If this sounds like you, then reach out today.

We'd love to talk if you…

  • Have managed Kubernetes “in anger”
  • Are in love with and terrified by Istio
  • Understand EKS, Kops, Rancher, GKE, & AKS and the strengths and weaknesses of each.
  • Have spliced into the control plane via webhooks, CRDs and custom controllers.
  • Are deeply experienced in the UNIX/Linux world

Bonus points if you…

  • Have Terraformed their twitter account
  • Have "tinkered" with the kernel
  • Understand how containers are constructed at an OS and kernel-level
  • Have worked in a pair programming environment
  • Are absolutely in love with Concourse
We haven't mentioned education

…and that's no accident. While we respect the perseverance and dedication it takes to get your higher degree, we also recognize that many smart and hard working people opt to go straight into the industry. We don't judge anyone for either path.

Contractor or employee?

It's entirely up to you. We treat everyone as equals, but we can only provide benefits to our full time employees.

We're 100% remote, but time zones suck

We're only hiring people based in or near the US (GMT-4 through GMT-7).

Make an Impact

Our team is small, and we like it that way. You'll have a unique opportunity to help shape SuperOrbital into something truly special. Help us build a company that lives up to our values and acts as an example of what a culture built on respect can achieve.

Why You'll Love Working With Us

We strive to offer a structure that matches our values.

Truly 100% Remote-First.

Not "some remote employees," not "many remote offices," but a truly 100% remote-first culture.

It's not always easy, but being fully remote gives our people a healthier work/life balance, allows us to create a more diverse team, and helps us attract the best people we can find.

A Deep Belief in Sustainable Pace.

We dedicate a day a week to internal projects, we never work more than 40 hours a week, and we give our people unlimited vacation (and 2 weeks of holidays).

People can't perform when they're overworked. Your brain needs time off to allow it to flourish when it's back on. DevOps is a marathon, not a sprint.

Benefits You Can Rely On.

To do good work, we have to feel we and our loved ones are safe. We provide that foundation for you.

We provide stellar medical, dental & vision insurance, and retirement plans to all of our employees.

Our Values

While these values stem from moral roots, we also just believe they're the right way to run a business. Working in an environment of professionalism, respect, and emotional safety allows us to produce our best work, and builds a culture that enriches everyone's lives.

Do What Works.

Our clients look to us to help them understand the myriad and constantly changing landscape of cloud-native tools. It's important to us that they succeed. This means focusing on the actual problems they face and leading them toward the simplest solutions possible. This is what we mean by "Do What Works."

Do The Right Thing.

We continually try to take the path that does right by our people and our clients, no matter how hard that can be. We believe that how you treat others inevitably comes back to you, so we try to keep our karma well groomed.

Be Kind.

We're a business, not a brogrammer startup. We don't accept death marches, political backstabbing, or a "take-it-for-the-team" mentality. Instead, we believe in an environment of professionalism and respect.

Applying Is Simple

No shitty forms, no copy-and-paste, just a simple email.

Let us know who you are, what excites you about working with us, and what you bring to the table. The more information the better! You have been given full and unconditional authorization to brag - enjoy it!

As a bonus to those of us who read to the end: be sure to make use of the word "poppycock".
