Infrastructure Developer - Denver, CO

Hundreds of petabytes of storage; hundreds of terabytes of RAM; hundreds of gigabits of network connectivity. Do you have what it takes to automate and orchestrate the control plane for it?

Faction, Inc. is a leader in deploying cloud infrastructure at scale. We are a profitable, venture-backed, rapidly-growing provider of private, hybrid-, and multi-cloud infrastructure.

We are seeking a T-shaped infrastructure automation developer who can help us significantly advance our capabilities by using code to automate the configuration and delivery of our infrastructure and services.

  • Implement a tightly-scoped CMDB (defined by an existent OpenAPI/Swagger spec, domain model, and PRD) with a RESTful API for internal consumption
  • Build a framework for API services internally to enable the rapid development and deployment of new capabilities - enabling a mapping from API specification to generated code and backend DB (preferably in a DB-agnostic way)
  • Develop code to interact with various hardware platforms; Compute, Network, and Storage systems such as VMware APIs, Brocade Network OS, NetApp APIs
  • Write “glue” code to enable smooth interaction between tools like PXE boot, Ansible/Salt/Puppet, IPMI, Vendor APIs, BASH or Powershell scripts
  • Help maintain and extend use of CI/CD tools such as Jenkins and the creation and maintenance of unit tests for functionality
