• You have experience and comfort with POSIX-based operating systems
• You have experience with operating a Kubernetes cluster in production
• You have experience with Infrastructure as Code tools such as Helm and Terraform or their substitutes
• You understand how networked services in the cloud work: VPC, IP, TCP, DNS, HTTP, etc.
• You abhor repetitive manual processes and are excited to automate them away
• You have a sixth sense for spotting waste (in money, time, CPU cycles) and eliminating it
• You learn quickly, regardless of the languages and technologies used
