We’re looking for an operations (DevOps) engineer to join us in creating next generation products and services that enable sharing, curating, remixing, and collaborating on open content.

The operations engineer is a full-time position reporting to the director of product strategy, and is a unique role which provides hands-on technical engineering of our server and application environments we use to provide rock-solid, scalable services to the public, while at the same time also working within the community to recruit and create trusted groups of DevOps volunteers. As such, the operations engineer works closely with the rest of the Products & Technology team, including other developers and user experience designers, as well as Creative Commons staff and particularly with community volunteers.

    Not so sure that photo sends the right message. A better image would demonstrate how diverse the current team is, or how you imagine it. The Mad Men years aren’t known for being inclusive…

    That’s a really good point, Maiki. And just to be clear, finding that photo was just my spur-of-the-moment decision, not the hiring manager for this position or anyone else. I liked the congnitive dissonance of seeing T-squares and protractors in a job posting for a software engineer. It made me laugh.

    In the interest of equal time, our most recent staff photo.
