Sr. DevOps Engineer

Originate, Los Angeles

A digital product development and venture firm

Originate is passionate about innovation. We partner with Startups and Enterprises to Design, Build, and Operate transformative software moving the world towards an AI-Native Future.


Our Tech Environment

New products are built primarily using Scala, RoR, Node.js, Go, and any number of front-end technologies (React, GraphQL, Webpack, Redux, etc.). Mobile development is both iOS and Android.

Our DevOps stack includes DC/OS, Cassandra, Kafka, Spark, Terraform, Ansible, CircleCI, Docker, AWS, Datadog, and Postgres.

You’ll find individuals hacking with everything else (Haskell, Clojure, Elixir, Elm, Rust, etc.) and we’re always ready to use a new language or a new framework when it’s ready or when a project dictates.

We work in small, fast-paced, cross-functional agile teams.
