Company Overview

Expanse protects the world’s most important organizations by discovering risks on the Internet no one else can find. Our customers comprise more than 10% of the routable Internet and rely on our products to discover, manage, and secure their global Internet assets. Born from DARPA, Expanse was founded in 2012 and is backed by more than $135M in funding.

Position Summary

At Expanse, we're monitoring the global Internet. That's a lot of data. To help us manage the infrastructure we require to process these data, we're looking for a Director of DevOps. 

As the Director of DevOps at Expanse, you'll own our Cloud infrastructure, building and owning our CI/CD platform as well as the execution infrastructure for our entire product line running in GCP and AWS. You'll guide senior-level contributors in their careers, as well as participating in day-to-day infrastructure work and the 24x7 on-call rotation. You'll work closely with other leaders in the Expanse Engineering and Product teams to build our product and technical roadmap. You'll be responsible for your team's execution of that roadmap, developing the KPIs required to monitor execution. You and your team will provide the tools, infrastructure, process and know-how to our development teams that will enable them to deploy and monitor their products in production, products that in turn ensure the safety and security of some of the largest companies in the world.

If you're looking for an opportunity to have a huge impact by building world class products that solve problems that nobody else can solve, we'd love to hear from you!
