Duties and Responsibilities

As a cloud infrastructure engineer at Bakkt your days will vary, but you will directly impact the emerging cryptocurrency, digital asset and blockchain ecosystem.

To succeed in this role, you will:

- Have extreme attention to detail without sacrificing execution rigor.

- Be thoughtful and analytical - ask why and contribute to the larger objectives.
- Participate in the design and architecture of hybrid cloud infrastructure with a focus on balancing security controls and operational requirements.
- Own hands-on implementation of decided architectures and deploy production ready infrastructure.
- Partner directly with internal and external development and security teams to understand requirements and mapping them into solutions.  


- Very strong background building cloud-based infrastructure in regulated industries (i.e. financial services, healthcare, DoD/IC, etc.) or top tier software companies as an SRE, software developer, systems engineering, systems administrator or similar is required.
- Hands-on experience with Microsoft Azure is required. Specifically, Azure Key Vault, Azure Kubernetes Service, Azure Dedicated HSM, Blob Storage, Azure Backup, Azure Functions, Virtual Machines, Service Fabric and Container Instances.
- Hands-on experience with Python, Bash, and/or PowerShell with a focus on orchestration and automation of underlying services, systems, provisioning, and security hardening.
- Additional experience with JS or C# a plus. Understanding of Linux operating systems at a detailed level including processes, memory allocation, and networking with an understanding of how applications function and impact other OS components and cloud services.
- Expert-level debug/troubleshooting skills. Hands-on experience deploying Hashicorp Terraform and Packer (or similar tools) is preferred.
- Hands-on experience designing, building, and implementing continuous integration pipelines using Jenkins, CircleCI, TeamCity or similar.
- Comfortable with Git, Jira, and similar tools.
