We’re on a mission to empower every person to own their inner potential, and we’re seeking candidates who want to make an impact on our journey.

We are looking for an experienced DevOps Engineer to join our Engineering team with a focus on our eCommerce Platform. Our eCommerce team is passionate about building a best-in-class online shopping platform to reach our customers in 100+ countries. We are dedicated to providing premium customer service across the eCommerce platform and Oura services. The ideal candidate will ensure the operational excellence of the eCommerce platform.

You will:

  • Build tooling, observability and fault tolerance into a growing eCommerce platform
  • Contribute to the development of our eCommerce platform and its integrations
  • Scale our service-driven infrastructure towards 10x scale and improve our development speed and security while doing it
  • Build our deployment and dependency management to ensure a fast and robust way to test and release our code
  • Build a team and culture of operational excellence and maintain SLAs
  • Ensure that our platform adheres to the latest security and compliance regulations
  • Coordinate with cross-functional teams and overseas stakeholders
  • Serve as the first DevOps expert in US
  • Take part in on-call duty

Oura is not your typical web app. We are working on interesting technical challenges such as:

  • Distributed systems: Multiple data producers, apps with offline support and real-time sync
  • Modern Cloud Architecture: AWS + Containers + Managed services
  • Large scale data: Oura customers generate terabytes of data
  • Applied ML: Great data for building production machine learning systems
  • Security: We handle sensitive user data, where security is not an afterthought
  • Embedded / Bluetooth / C++ / low level programming
  • A continuously growing user-base of highly active and passionate users


We would love to have you on our team if you:

  • Have a pragmatic can-do attitude and delivery-focused mindset: you can handle tradeoffs between short-term goals and long-term tech debt
  • Can design for scale and growth: such as prepare for user demand peaks, and build fault tolerant and secure systems
  • Have built robust deployment pipelines and have experience in related tools
  • Have experience running, monitoring and debugging production systems at scale on AWS (We are running on AWS infrastructure and use key AWS services like EC2, ECS, RDS, S3 and SQS)
  • Have built backend APIs using REST, gRPC, GraphQL or similar technologies
  • Have solid programming skills in languages such as JavaScript, Python, or Java
  • Are comfortable working with a diverse and talented group of team members residing throughout the globe
  • Although not required, we appreciate experience running and orchestrating containers in AWS with tools like ECS, Fargate or EKS

Together we will continue to define Oura as a company where you can:

  • Be productive and do your best work
  • Be part of a world-class engineering team following and helping define best practices
  • Contribute to a product that improves the lives of 100s of thousands of people across the globe
  • Be happy and have great work-life balance - we work efficiently, remove the fluff and pointless meetings, so that work continues to inspire and motivate you
  • Grow on your chosen career path, be it technical, people, managerial or leadership skills, or any mix of those
