We need developers who believe in Open Source


What We're Looking For . . .

  • Frequent Contributors

    You regularly contribute to various open-source projects. You open issues when you find them and respond kindly to open issues when you have something to add. You enjoy reviewing pull requests, not as a chore, but as something you learn from every time and enjoy leveling-up those around you.

  • Passion Projects

    You probably have a few of your own open-source projects—big or small. You identified something that needed to exist or just scratched an itch by implementing something as a weekend project. You are curious and constantly looking at source code to understand how it works.

  • Community Oriented

    You like working with a passionate community of experts and beginners who love your work. You're probably already in a few slack communities today. You have empathy for platform and infrastructure teams, DevOps practitioners, and software developers.

  • Open Source Career

    You want to move your career in an open-source direction. Giving back to the community with your contributions would be the most rewarding work. Maybe you're not able to do much open source today, but you want to in your next role.

The Cloud Posse Experience

Working at Cloud Posse will be unlike any other work experience you have had. You'll look back at this time and realize that you had the most fun and the most personal growth due to the challenges we threw at you. We see bright, articulate, energetic self-starters thriving in our environment. In previous jobs, you might have plateaued after a year, automating yourself into a mundane day-to-day routine devoid of growth and bored out of your mind. This is not that.

Cloud Posse is both a product and professional services company. It just so happens that our product is free (Open Source) and we give it away. Our engagements are short (3-4 months) and constantly evolve our product. It's constantly jolting the brain with another dopamine rush. New challenges. New problems. New ways to solve them. We're not constantly reinventing the wheel like other consulting companies. We are taking that same wheel (our open-source) and polishing it towards perfection. Our customers ensure we're constantly growing by asking us to implement new and challenging capabilities that introduce stress fractures which we address and push our product forward.

  • Training & Accessible Peers

    You'll be paired with a senior team member. For the first few weeks, we'll work to level you up so you'll learn our stack and processes. We believe there are no stupid questions. We're building a knowledge base. Everyone is kind. Everyone is patient.

    You have groomed your GitHub profile and established a history of participating in open source discussions and projects. You are professional in your interactions and always courteous.

  • You Excel at Teaching/Coaching

    You are comfortable jumping on a Zoom call to help teach less experienced engineers complex concepts. You can put yourself in their shoes and try to explain things in a manner they will understand.

  • Write Documentation

    You believe in writing documentation and that it's critical as part of any deliverable. You are able to explain what you've built in a way that customers will understand. You open pull requests to improve documentation when you can.

Why we're awesome

Open Source Professional Services

Everything we do is Open Source (APACHE2) and available on our GitHub at github.com/cloudposse. This ensures we deliver quality because our reputation is out in the open. It also means everything needs to be highly repeatable and reusable. That's why we're the largest provider of Open Source Terraform modules you'll find. It also means you'll be able to showcase all your work.

Massive Community

We're all about community. We have 6,000 members, FREE weekly office hours, a popular YouTube channel, and documentation. Our mission is to educate companies on modern DevOps "best practices." We accomplish this by thoroughly documenting everything we do. Everyone on our team contributes so we grow together and iterate toward perfection.

Thought Leaders

Few companies have written as much terraform as we have. Working with hundreds of repos and customers with thousands of terraform root modules, has forced us to come up with innovative ways to work with Infrastructure as Code and how it fits into the bigger picture in order to deliver business value. We practice GitOps, CI/CD, and take security seriously. We leverage Kubernetes, Docker, Helm, and Terraform every day./p>

Challenging Problems

Life's boring without a challenge. That's why we set the bar high! We're a small team charged with managing hundreds of repositories that are downloaded millions of times. Our work sits in the critical path of Fortune 500 companies to bootstrapping startups just starting out. We're constantly kept on our toes by our customers and community who use our tools in new and exciting ways.
