Interpersonal Frequency (I.F.) is seeking a full-time DevOps Engineer to add to our growing team.
At I.F., we’re putting the government in the cloud. We design, build, maintain, and grow sites on our open source, highly available web stack for some of the largest cities, public libraries, and government agencies in the country. Our company’s purpose is to make government online more relevant, accountable, and responsive to everyone. We also created a suite of proprietary analytics tools that survey 3.4 million Americans each day. We are growing quickly and are looking for additions to our team that will continue to deliver cutting-edge, open sourced websites for our clients.
I.F. is a 10 year-old company with team members in Seattle, Chicago, Denver, New York and the DC area.
We provide a remote work environment, so you don’t need to move for this job. We encourage face to face collaboration in our regional offices and expect you to travel when required. As a purpose and principles-driven organization, we want talented team members who want to make a difference.
Working remotely means we can bring together some of the best minds in the country. Between video calls and Slack, the distance evaporates quickly, and ideas, projects and puns fly at the speed of light. Working remotely also allows us to find harmony in work / life balance.
We are looking for a DevOps engineer to help us scale our systems as we bring more cities and government agencies into the cloud. Our backend tech stack currently includes RHEL/CentOS, Docker, Node.js, PHP, Apache/Nginx, Solr/ElasticSearch, MariaDB/MySQL, GlusterFS, Redis/Memcache, HAProxy, Varnish, New Relic, and AWS (GovCloud, EC2, ELB, RDS, Aurora, ElastiCache, S3, CloudFormation, Redshift, EFS, etc.), DigitalOcean, and Rackspace.
Who you are
We're looking for a senior DevOps engineer with significant experience configuring, managing, automating, securing, monitoring and maintaining systems at scale.
- You love to solve problems and can do so under pressure.
- Scaling, reliability, automation, security, and performance are things you care about deeply.
- You have a good mixture of planning, risk taking and a “get-it-done” attitude.
- You value the open source community and want to give back to it.
- You can clearly explain your ideas to both clients and other team members both verbally and in writing.
- You like to have fun and work with a small team! You play well with others (not just engineers).
- You bring both creativity and maturity to your work: you’re a self-starter who can jump in quickly and can manage your own time effectively in a remote work environment.
What you’ll do
You will help ensure the scalability, security, performance, and availability of our systems by applying your expertise in the evolution and daily operation of our LAMP/LEMP stack, implementing and automating infrastructure deployments and working with our engineering team to ensure the software that we build can scale.
- You must either be a US Citizen or already have a Green Card to apply
- 3-5 years of experience with Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud hosting
- 3+ years of experience with MySQL (DevOps, not DBA)

- Performance testing (e.g. New Relic, Blackfire)
Why work with us?
- Fun, cutting edge remote work environment – ever changing, always a chat away from team members
- Your work directly impacts the lives of millions of Americans every day
- Healthcare, and Dental/Vision/Life/Disability plans
- Unlimited vacation, and a flexible schedule
