Being a Cloud Infrastructure Engineer at Conjura

We are proud of our approach to infrastructure at Conjura! In this role you’ll be joining a team that is passionate about solving problems with a serverless first approach; leaning into managed services that allow our small team to punch way above their weight. We define our infrastructure with Terraform and provision infrastructure with automated pipelines, we define those pipelines in Terraform. Its turtles and Terraform all the way down. 

As a Cloud infrastructure Engineer at Conjura you will collaborate with product engineers and data scientists. You will design VPC topologies, CI/CD pipelines, define the interactions between systems, build tooling to help you and your teammates, and improve the security posture of the cloud. You care about availability and data durability, your solutions span multiple availability zones, you perform operations as code and make frequent, small, reversible changes. You don’t know any server by name, you think of them as cattle not pets. 

 

Need to haves:

  • Deep understanding of AWS IAM – We operate multi tenant workloads across various AWS accounts, secure logical isolation of customer data is always front of mind. You should be comfortable crafting least privilege policies and navigating cross account AWS access etc.
  • Experience operating containerised ML workloads – Whether that’s ECS / Kubernetes / AWS Batch or any of the other 17 ways to run containers on AWS we don’t mind.
  • Infrastructure as Code experience – We heavily use Terraform, but once you are familiar with Cloudformation, CDK, Pulumi or any method of programmatically creating infrastructure with AWS apis we are happy. No Click Ops! We treat having to press buttons to make things happen as a failure.
  • Solid CI/CD experience – We pride ourselves on having well tested code. Building pipelines with GitHub Actions / CodePipeline / Step Functions is no big deal to you.
  • Working knowledge of a high level programming language. Python is used heavily at Conjura.
  • Always learning – You keep your ear to the ground, you are always on the lookout for new technologies / frameworks / services / patterns that can elevate your impact and the impact of the team.

Conjura team values

Curiosity – We NEED to know about our customers’ businesses, what makes the businesses tick and what will make it better. We continuously sharpen our skills and keep up to date with the latest approaches to analytics.

Collaboration – Yes we have degrees and PHDs, and we have done amazing things with data, but when we join Conjura we check our ego at the door. This is because, as individuals, we don’t have all the answers. The excellence of our team is shaped from multiple points of view and backgrounds working collaboratively. At the same time we are equally at home working independently – sometimes we need to take ownership.

Trustworthiness – We are trusted to produce accurate insights from commercially sensitive data sets. We must employ analytical rigor and quantitative reasoning skills.

Nimbleness – We need to flex when our client’s business, customers or market changes!

Clarity – We must simplify complexity and explain value points to time poor, inexpert stakeholders. We have a passion for communicating ideas with data and technology.
