Work Type: Full Time

Blissbook is seeking a DevOps / Backend Engineer to help build, maintain, and scale our existing and future SaaS platforms.

Who We Are

Blissbook’s mission is to enable creativity in situations where it’s difficult to be creative. We believe the world would be a better place if people were able to do all the things they have to do, in a fun way.

This mission has driven us to create Blissbook, an employee handbook content management system. When it comes to top-down communication & policy management, it’s very difficult for people to express themselves, be creative, and/or represent their brand & culture AND do what they need to do to protect their company. With Blissbook, customers can do both.

Who You Are

The ideal candidate is someone who can take a node.js application from working in development to working in production in a secure, reliable and efficient manner. You should believe in our mission and product and align with our values. You want to work with other smart people on fun, challenging problems. You’re an action-oriented self-starter who can achieve high-level goals with little to no supervision.

  • Are enthusiastic about working in a small team or startup environment.

  • Can identify potential issues early in the Software Development Lifecycle.

  • Have the interpersonal skills to set and enforce processes for the whole team.

  • Have references who will tell us (A) what a treat it is to work with you and (B) how great your engineering skills are.

What You’ll Be Responsible For

Your day-to-day work will center around SaaS application infrastructure to grow and maintain Blissbook and other new products. Your primary responsibilities will be to:

  • Build and maintain a reliable, secure, and efficient SaaS application platform

  • Collaborate with the founders to bring new features and services into production

  • Proactively meet standards for information security and compliance (e.g. SOC2)

  • Automate deployment, monitoring, management and incident response

  • Monitor stability and performance and troubleshoot issues

  • Scale infrastructure to meet customer demands

  • Develop and improve operational practices and procedures

Your Background

  • Cloud infrastructure environments, preferably AWS

  • Containerization technology, preferably Docker

  • Relational databases, preferably PostgreSQL

  • Release automation with CI/CD pipelines, preferably GitHub Actions

  • Javascript and node.js

Experience scaling an early stage startup is a big plus.

What You’ll Get

You’ll be one of our first full-time employees, working alongside 2 founders who can design and build exceptional software and user experiences at a rapid pace. You’ll get:

  • A results-oriented work environment and the tools you need to work successfully. Remote work is the default.

  • A competitive salary plus incentive-based compensation.

  • A ton of responsibility on the back-end of an existing revenue-generating software product and our future products.

  • Unlimited future growth opportunities at an early stage, self-funded startup on the path to venture funding.

  • A one-month and three-month performance review to make sure things are working out. Reviews are every 6 months after that.

  • The opportunity to work with driven, motivated, fun, PEACH-E people.
