Location: United States - Remote
Employment Type: Full-time
Team: Product Development Operations
Guidewire’s Cloud Operations Team is part of the Product Development & Operations (PDO) organization, delivering 24x7 service to customers who are using Guidewire’s software products on the Guidewire Cloud Platform.
As a Cloud Operations Engineer (AWS), you will be part of a team that is passionately trying to automate everything possible to make Guidewire systems run more efficiently. The CloudOps Team is dedicated full-time to crafting and running software that improves the reliability of systems in production, serving hundreds of customers and supporting millions of transactions every single day. You will be operating Guidewire’s flagship cloud platform and InsuranceSuite products and building tooling to help ensure efficient operations and optimal availability of all SaaS multi-tenant and customer- focused systems. Cloud Engineers collaborate closely with Guidewire’s product developers to ensure that the Guidewire core cloud products address functional and non-functional requirements such as availability, performance, observability, and maintainability.
This role requires a high degree of independence, ownership and responsibility. If you like to be challenged and have a passion for solving problems at scale with systems like Kubernetes and Aurora, then we would love to hear from you. The ideal candidate is someone who exemplifies the ethics of, "If you have to do something more than once, automate it," and who can rapidly self-educate on new concepts and tools. Bonus points if you have prior experience doing production support of a SaaS platform, and are comfortable working with state-of-the-art highly containerized cloud-native environments in AWS.
We provide 24x7 support to our customers, so we expect you to take turns with your teammates being on-call for weekend production emergencies or to provide rotating weekend operational support.
