Senior DevOps Engineer

Celona was born with the idea that a combination of 5G radio technology, edge computing and machine learning software will fundamentally change how organizations work and do business. Our journey has started in 2019. Our founding team members have been part of companies like Qualcomm, Aruba, Cisco and have built products spanning technologies from chipsets to systems to cloud based software.

We obsessively value customer intimacy, thinking big while acting small, and diversity in everything we do.

Celona is looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer with a passion for continually learning and exploring new technologies. You would lead the effort in building scalable tools to run our distributed systems. You will be responsible for expanding and supporting the infrastructure platform services we provide, as well as engaging with other teams to help improve efficiency and optimize our technology infrastructure.

In this position, you will directly report to the VP of Engineering. You will engage with the rest of the engineering team on a daily basis in defining the goals and tactics to deliver on strict sprint release timeline and customer support priorities. Your ability to translate R&D efforts to effective cost management for cloud services rollouts, proactive monitoring tools, scale across multiple cloud and edge compute service providers will contribute greatly to Celona's differentiation in the market.

At Celona, we love working with new team members who are better than us in multiple dimensions - hence, we will value diversity in your approach to manage strategies and tactics to deliver on expected outcomes for us as a team, and ask that you take leadership positions for key initiatives across the company even when acting as an individual contributor.

It is our ultimate goal to contribute positively to your career growth by providing you with a work environment where we have fun, make an impact and realize the benefits of our growth as a team. If you enjoy bootstrapping R&D and engineering functions for products targeting technical audiences and bring a do-whatever-it-takes player/coach attitude, then we would love to hear from you.
