About Workframe

Workframe was founded in 2016 by Andy Parsons, Robert Moore, Matt Smith and Kevin Ryan (Double Click, Gilt, Business Insider, MongoDB, Zola).  We’re helmed by serial entrepreneurs, growing fast, and leveraging technology to revolutionize the commercial real estate (CRE) industry.

The Workframe team is eclectic, bringing its users a rapidly evolving platform that addresses challenges across the built environment. We are passionate business people, designers and engineers who thrive on delivering value to every CRE professional. Workframe's software as a service (SaaS) product drives efficient, space-centered communication and decision making across project teams and helps them derive insights and efficiency never before possible.

Our software enables tenants, landlords and brokers to navigate the CRE process from site selection to move-in using our innovative project management and visualization core technologies.

About the Role

We are seeking a talented Senior DevOps Engineer to join us. You will be the first DevOps Engineer to join our team, and as such you'll be instrumental in defining how we think about tools, process and everything related to uptime, automation and scale. You will lead the charge on ensuring the highest level of service for our users through state-of-the-art infrastructure, monitoring, alerting, and deployment. We are a Clojure-centric organization (see stack below) but pride ourselves on a best-tool-for-the-job philosophy to solving problems. Bring your toolkit. Ops engineering will play a critical role in Workframe's strategic positioning. You will:

  • Work closely with the product and design team to deploy new features and success analytics
  • Bring your knowledge of ops to bear on our ambitious roadmap, including architecting and budgeting for infrastructure growth
  • Learn and share immutable programming techniques as we hone our tools and approach
  • Attack hard (and fun!) automation challenges in our operations stack
  • Ensure uptime, performance and user experience are delivered without compromise
  • Work alongside the CTO to plan and execute strategies around security, privacy enterprise compliance

Our stack is:

  • AWS: EC2, S3, Elastic Beanstalk, CodeDeploy, SES, etc.
  • iOS/Android
  • Clojure/script
  • React/Reagent/Re-frame
  • Datomic
  • Elastic Search

We are proud to organize and host the Clojure/nyc meetup group, where the FP community gathers to share and learn!

About You

At Workframe, we seek to hire outstanding individuals who embody our TIDES principles: we practice Transparency, Intelligence, Diligence, Excellence and Support in everything we do. You’re a great fit if you enjoy tackling big problems head-on, take your work seriously (but not yourself), do your best when collaborating with others and thrive in a team-oriented environment.  

Qualifications and Requirements

  • 3+ years of software ops engineering experience, most recently focused on a scaled SaaS platform of some kind
  • Exceptional communication and interpersonal skills
  • Love, or at least deep affection for functional programming ideas
  • Ability to think on your feet and work through live production problems one step at a time
  • Prior startup experience where rapid prototyping is balanced with solid, scalable platform engineering
  • Ability to thrive in a (lowercase) agile environment guided by just-enough process
  • Passion for quality software, techniques and processes to accomplish continuous improvement
  • Extra consideration for people experienced with JVM-based services ecosystems
