Team and Mission

WireWheel is revolutionizing the area of privacy and data protection for companies. By bringing to bear innovations in cloud infrastructure, machine learning, data science, and user experience, WireWheel provides a software-as-a-service solution for companies to safeguard and steward their most important asset: personal data.

The engineering team builds and supports a web-based platform that enables companies to run their privacy programs. We are a small, growing team in a true start-up environment. As a team, we move fast, adapt to the needs of the business, and ship quality software frequently. Our team members have diverse backgrounds, which helps cultivate an environment for creative problem solving and innovation. We believe that good ideas come from every level of the organization, from interns to the CEO. We invest in the career development of each team member, and strive to provide opportunities to meet personal growth objectives.

We are looking for team members with similar creativity and energy to help build a lasting company and culture.

Role

Do you strive to continuously improve your user’s experience? Are you always improving your own skills and looking for new technologies to learn? Do you care deeply about enabling companies to better protect their customers’ data? Do you want to collaborate with a rapidly growing team where you can directly influence culture and the quality of products we ship?

As a DevOps Engineer, you will enable quick, iterative releases for our data privacy application, architecting the underlying systems and automated processes. You will guide technical decisions related to the operating processes for development and production, balancing between established tools and the newest tech to enable the team quickly, all while keeping a sharp eye on our ability to maintain the system long-term. You will evangelize strong engineering practices and create mechanisms to ensure the team adopts these practices. Your teammates will come to you for your expertise in build and deployment orchestration.

Day-to-day, you will

  • Continually improve the daily operations of our systems with a focus on performance, cost, and maintainability.
  • Craft production-quality code using standard development methodologies.
  • Demonstrate perseverance while discovering a bug or issue’s root cause.
  • Create automated system tests with the same development rigor as you would for production software (i.e., design and code reviews, documentation, continuous integration, etc.).
  • Diagnose production issues and assist our customer support team as needed.
  • Collaborate with other software developers, testers, UX, DevOps, product managers, and customer support to make sure that we meet customer needs and own problems together.

Ideally you have

  • Experience designing and building DevOps/IT operations for an always-available, self-healing, secure service.
  • Frequently designed, created, and supported build orchestration and continuous integration processes and systems (Jenkins, CircleCI, TeamCity, Maven, Kubernetes, Docker, etc.) after thoughtful consideration of technologies.
  • Built security into automated development and deployment processes.
  • Demonstrable knowledge of programming fundamentals and development methodologies.
  • A passion for creating quality software that will help protect private data.
  • Excellent problem solving skills and a strong desire to learn and grow and the ability to adapt and flex to take on different challenges.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills including ability to create clear and concise written communications.
