Senior Devops Engineer at Amplify (Brooklyn, NY)

Amplify is a leader in creating immersive, rigorous digital learning experiences that look great, play great, and help students expect great things of themselves. Amplify has been described as the best tech company in education, and the best education company in tech.

As an engineer at Amplify, you will join a talented team tackling the toughest problems in education with the best ideas in technology – including user experience, APIs and services, data analysis, and deployment pipelines. You’ll play an active role in imagining and improving product design and the classroom experience.

We hire engineers “for the slope, not the intercept” – we’re looking for intellectual ability, flexibility and ability to learn, and commitment to work together in tight-knit teams.

What You’ll Do

Our Devops team builds the tools that empower every engineer to ship code to classrooms quickly and reliably. We believe strongly in teaching our teammates to fish – you’ll be an application engineer building great tools whose users are other engineers, not an “operations engineer” twiddling configs. You’ll be building the sharing and learning culture so that every team uses your tools to improve their own lives, and those of our students and teachers.

  • participating in cross-team share-outs, brownbags, and workshop series
