We also provide web and mobile applications to our own FlightStats community, helping travelers to better manage their travel day. FlightStats' data is viewed by millions of people each month, and we are emerging as an important provider of value within the global travel ecosystem.

FlightStats is looking for a Jr Development Operations Engineer to become a critical member of one of our product teams. The product teams develop and maintain our web properties (including FlightStats.com), our mobile applications, and internal applications that convert raw data from hundreds of sources into a data product usable by internal teams and external customers alike.

Our ideal candidate has experience in most or all of the following:

* physical & virtual server hardware, OS platforms, tool selection (VMware, AWS, containers)
* web servers, proxies, and SSL (nginx, haproxy, apache/httpd)
* writing scripts to automate simple tasks (python, bash, cURL, etc.)
* collaborating with an inter-disciplinary, Agile team to identify, prioritize, and execute tasks
* system health & performance monitoring, troubleshooting, and remediation, including visualization tools such as graphite, New Relic, Nagios/Icinga, datadog etc.

Experience with the following, while not required, would be a plus:

* applying CI/CD methodologies and revision control using associated tools (e.g. Jenkins, git, REST)
* maintaining scalable, redundant, and replicated data systems including, but not limited to, Postgresql RDBMS, mysql, and various nosql and data caching platforms
* automating unix system provisioning and configuration using tools such as Puppet, Saltstack, Docker, or Ansible in public and private cloud environments like VMWare and AWS
* identifying and implementing best practices by collaborating with other DevOps engineers
* basic IP/CIDR networking
* knowledge of Java ecosystem, build tools, Java EE, and containers

While experience is certainly important, our ideal candidate would also share in our enthusiasm for building, maintaining, and optimizing great software.
