At XOR Security, we build solutions that keep our citizens safe, our government’s information secure and our intelligence professionals one step ahead of the adversary. From defensive and offensive cyber operations to data analytics and strategic consulting, the XOR team provides the insight, expertise and dedication to ensure mission success. Our solutions deliver certainty – the certainty clients need to make critical decisions and lead with confidence.

The Role: 

XOR Security is actively seeking mid to senior level Dev Ops Engineers who will be responsible for supporting a small team in the design and development of a prototype system to provide advanced time-series visualizations to a government customer for testing and evaluating military technology. Visualizing terabytes of time-series data in a meaningful way is a real challenge, and XOR Security has an exciting greenfield opportunity to solve that challenge. We need high impact engineers that can help us solve this challenging problem.

Due to the small team and nature of the work, you will be expected to wear many hats and solve a variety of problems, from infrastructure as code, enabling continuous integration and testing, operations monitoring, resource management, and systems administration. You will be working with senior data scientists and software engineers to develop a useful and usable data product, and will have a great deal of autonomy, responsibility, and creative control over the outcome of the product.


The ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of building and maintaining infrastructure that supports mission critical software products. The ideal candidate would be extremely proficient in infrastructure automation tools and the AWS suite of services, with strong experience with Docker, Kubernetes, Jenkins, Ansible, Prometheus, Grafana, GitHub, or equivalent tools.

We are looking for a self-starting, experienced engineer who can solve complex problems, adapt to rapid change, and enjoys building products from the ground up. We are looking for someone who has an interest in automating greenfield infrastructure; who can help us think through our customer’s requirements for high-impact solutions; who has a passion for usability and high attention to detail.

The ability to work remotely is required, and strong communication skills are a must, with specific focus on written, asynchronous communication.

Some minimal amount (1-2 times per year) of travel may be required to the customer site in California.
