About the role

Release is looking for a Founding Member of the engineering team reporting directly to one of the co-founders.

This role will be responsible for developing software solutions in Rails around Docker, Kubernetes and cloud systems (starting with AWS). This position will also be responsible for interfacing with customers to help understand their systems and how to take their environments and deploy them onto the Release platform. A deep understanding of AWS API's, Kubernetes tools, Docker, Linux systems and able to write Go and/or Rails would be the ideal fit for this role. As a senior engineering team member you'll be responsible for a high level of quality and driving solutions from start to finish.

In addition to engineering work and customer interaction you'll also be helping build the culture of the company from the ground up alongside the founders and the early founding team members.

Why you should join Release

Every company that is building software has to manage environments. This is time consuming and takes away from building things customers want. Most companies have one or few staging environments that become bottlenecks as code must run in staging before releasing to production. Applications are also getting more and more complex and development is getting harder to do on your laptop. Release solves these problems by making repeatable environments for every developer on every Pull Request.
