Cloud Operations Engineer

Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) Data Services is looking for a Cloud Operations Engineer to join our team.

We operate the largest repository of seismological data dedicated to supporting researchers worldwide. Together with our counterpart organization UNAVCO, we are building a cloud platform to which we will migrate our combined data and services. It is a big task and we need help, primarily in the areas of cloud administration and cloud operations. An ideal candidate is expert in one of these areas and able to help with the other. This position will play a key role in designing the next generation, cloud-based platform for our combined scientific data platform.

This job is for you if…

You are a cloud operations engineer, ideally with experience in AWS who is well versed in development and deployment in cloud environments. You are self-motivated with strong time management skills. You work well with others in small, remote development teams and can also develop a complete project on your own.

We are a small, scientific consortium with a global reach. The work we perform and the services we provide have a significant and direct impact on earthquake and other geoscience research.

The essential responsibilities for this position may be found in the attached position description.

Some travel (up to 20%) within the United States will be required.

In accordance with Executive Order 14042, all IRIS employees are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 regardless of the employee’s duty location or work arrangement (e.g. telework, remote work, etc.), subject to such exceptions as required by law. If offered employment, you will therefore be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and submit documentation of proof of vaccination before your appointment or onboarding with IRIS or document an approved exemption. Information about requesting a medical or religious accommodation/exemption should be directed to IRIS Human Resources.

IRIS is unable to provide sponsorship for work authorization within the United States.
