Lead DevOps with AWS for an Information Services Company

Lead DevOps with AWS for an Information Services Company 40 hrs/week, 12+ months

Currently, we are looking for remote Lead DevOps with expertise with Linux, particularly Ubuntu and systemd and expertise with Amazon cloud products and offerings to join our team.

The customer provides a complete and optimized research solution comprised of e-journals, e-books, and research databases — all combined with the most powerful discovery service to support the information needs and maximize the research experience of its end-users.

The primary focus for this position is to manage existing small-team infrastructure and product operations while furthering integration into EIS' overall large scale infrastructure. This person will help to run the existing Rackspace systems, and to do some work later in helping move those to AWS.

Please note that even though you are applying for this position, you may be offered other projects to join within EPAM Anywhere.
