The role

We’re looking to add a new core member to our small but fast growing engineering team: an experienced DevOps engineer who can dive in to our extensively automated network of global infrastructure, summoning their deep technical background to drive new innovation in the tools and systems that run our cutting edge traffic management platform.

We’re looking for an autodidact who can immerse themselves in our globally distributed infrastructure immediately, leveraging existing technical strengths and teaching themselves the systems that are new to them. You should have broad knowledge of the technologies in modern infrastructure operations and automation, offering constructive advice for improvements, while being able to use and scale the systems in our existing platform. You’ll take responsibility for the quality of your code, and your daily work will have an immediate company-wide impact.

Some stuff you’ll work on:

Deployment automation

Monitoring, metrics collection and alerting

Continuous build and testing systems

Linux system maintenance and platform security

Traffic load balancing, filtering, and DDoS mitigation tools

Messaging, persistent DB and caching systems


We like to find the right tool for the job, and we’ll expect your sage advice to help make future decisions on which technologies should power our platform (and why they are best). Whatever the technology, we strive for provably maintainable, scalable, and secure systems.

We run a custom stack in a very distributed network with infrastructure in various environments around the globe. Some tools we’re currently using to tie it all together include:


Ansible, Docker

MongoDB, Redis, RabbitMQ

Python (Twisted), Bash, C

Hadoop/HDFS/OpenTSDB, Grafana, Bosun

BPF, iptables, packet analysis

Working @ NS1

We’re a small, well funded startup with a casual work environment and strong work ethic. There’s a lot to do so we keep meetings and process to a minimum. We’re headquartered in NYC’s Financial District. We like to have fun, but skip most of the fancy startup gimmicks (fresh beer yes, gourmet chef and afternoon yoga no). We prefer candidates local to NYC or SFO, but will happily consider well qualified remote employees.

We offer:

competitive compensation (salary and stock options)

medical, dental, and vision

commuter benefits


flexible hours and time off

choice of workstation

NS1 is an equal opportunity employer.

Disability insurance

Life and ad&d insurance

Medical + dental + vision



Flexible vacation policy

Flexible spending account (fsa) plan

Commuter benefits

Mac, pc, linux (pick your flavor)

Flexible work schedule
