DevOps Engineer

About Us

At Port 443 we work together, laugh together, and eat a lot of donuts together. (Have you seen our Instagram? It’s basically a food blog.) Our products (My Music Staff, TutorBird & AthletaDesk) are always evolving, making for an exciting and dynamic environment. Every day, we’re connecting with our thousands of users all around the world. If you ask them what they love about us, they’ll tell you that we really listen to their needs and go above and beyond to help. Our members are at the heart of everything we do. Their feedback and ideas help shape our products, and at the end of the day, we’re all here because of them… 

…and because of the donuts. 

About You

You’re a top-notch DevOps kind of person, with a strong emphasis on “Ops”. You’ve got practical experience with AWS and a passion for cyber security (but you probably don’t like the word “cyber” because… well, it’s just kind of weird). Perhaps you were a developer at one point but switched gears to infrastructure and networking (and still like to toss the developer hat back on every now and again!).  

You like figuring out bottlenecks in systems and you’re a proactive problem solver. You use your development skills to automate routine tasks and you like defining infrastructure as code. Your interests lie at the intersection of software and infrastructure. You take pride in your work and you hate being on-call, so you work carefully to implement reliable infrastructure. You don’t mind chipping in to solve software and/or infrastructure problems around the office either! 

You’ve got: 

  • An interest in working at a stable, small (but growing!) SaaS company 
  • A diploma or degree in a relevant field 
  • Hands-on experience with AWS (CloudFormation, ElastiCache, S3, RDS, SQS, EC2, VPC, EBS… ABC, IOU, LOL) 
  • Understanding and familiarity with one or more cyber security frameworks (your choice, come and tell us what you know) 
  • In-depth knowledge of web technologies and networking 
  • Working knowledge of ASP.NET and C# 

 

Your responsibilities will include: 

  • Reviewing, maintaining and optimizing our AWS infrastructure 
  • Working with software developers to devise, coordinate and deploy infrastructure changes 
  • Performing security reviews and penetration testing of APIs, network configurations, etc. (both onsite and cloud infrastructure) 
  • Ensuring best practices for data security 
  • Working with external service providers when necessary to ensure smooth email delivery from our SaaS platform 
  • On-call, incident response and incident management 
  • Automating as much as possible 

 

Meet the Team!

Dan is the founder & president of the company, so none of us would be here without him! 😊 He oversees everything going on at Port 443, and his hands are in a lot of the development projects. He’s the guy who makes sure that everything is always running smoothly. Lately, you can find Dan taking meetings while walking on the office treadmill desk! Fun fact: did you know you can suddenly develop an avocado allergy as an adult? Dan knows! 🥑 

Marc once let us decide the fate of his haircut by Slack poll and shaved his head! As a member of the back-end development team, he’s working on all the things “under the hood” that keep our products running. He’s always got the perfect thing to share in the #random channel, whether it’s his quarantine needlefelt animals or the adorable videos of his pets 😻 

Ranveer manages the development team and oversees the company’s finances. Ask anyone at the office to describe him and they’d say “Ranveer is so generous!” Ask them to expand on that and they would clarify that he shares his advent calendar chocolate with us every year! 🍫 For a good story, ask him about what happened with the UPS driver and the office door… 😬
