This could be you

Managing people is core to every business. That’s why Rise is on a mission to dominate the people-management software market with powerful software that is a cut above the rest. Rise provides an experience that is unique in our market by focusing on modern, intuitive software and an outstanding client experience.

As a key player on our development team, you’ll create and manage docker containers to deploy our code while managing code pipelines from workstation to production. You’ll also stay one step ahead by constantly monitoring our system health and ensuring that our environments are ready for growth.

As an engineering team, we always choose to get things done right over getting them done fast. We strongly believe that research and experimentation is fundamental to producing high-quality software and are not afraid to challenge conventional wisdom. We are looking for people who share these values and are strongly consistent with their own.

Here’s what you’ll be doing

#1) Creating & managing docker containers

At Rise we love docker containers and we use them extensively to deploy our code. Orchestrating the docker containers using our toolset will be part of your domain. You’ll ensure that containers are healthy and delivering services efficiently.

#2) Creating & managing code pipelines from workstation to production

Our team likes to release early and release often. You’ll be responsible for keeping this process streamlined and removing barriers as they arise. You’ll continue to leverage the existing  ‘infrastructure as code’ environment deployment flow and assure that code flows seamlessly through our staging environments. You’ll also review PHP and Ruby code and add tooling that provides feedback when conventions are not being followed.

#3) Monitoring system health

As our platform grows, our environments need to grow with it. You’ll be constantly looking ahead and seeing around corners to ensure our environments keep up with our growth. You’ll be using our toolset and creating your own to detect any signs that things aren’t running perfectly.
