DevOps Engineer (m/f/d)

Pitch is the collaborative presentation software for modern teams. We're focused on making it fast and delightful for teams to create and deliver beautiful presentations, and easy for anyone to find inspiration from templates crafted by experts. Since we launched Pitch publicly in October 2020 and raised our Series B funding in May, over 100,000 teams have adopted Pitch as their presentation software of choice, including top brands like Intercom, Superhuman, and Notion.

We’re looking for a DevOps Engineer who will play an integral role in building out our CI/CD capabilities and supporting the product teams in their cloud infrastructure needs. We're looking for an experienced developer with a passion for DevOps methodologies and a shipping mindset.

The DevOps team ensures that our infrastructure allows for frequent, easy & stress-free rollouts and rollbacks into our Web, Electron and React Native apps. As its member, you’ll play an integral role in transforming our weekly release cycles into true CI/CD pipelines. On top of this, you and your teammates will support the product teams in leveraging the AWS Cloud Infrastructure and Services to ship user facing features.

If you're a people-oriented person looking for a high-impact role that can influence the health of the entire engineering organization, we'd love to talk to you!
