At HouseCanary, we believe in empowered teams that are responsible for running the software they’ve built - but at the same time, these teams need support from experts to help them build the foundation to run their services. We’ve built a modern cloud infrastructure on AWS that lets us deliver the platform our teams need to build on. We’re looking for the right person to help us grow this platform to the next level by improving security, governance and performance.
As part of our central DevOps infrastructure team, the Cloud Systems Engineer will be responsible for managing the systems and networks that form the foundation of HouseCanary’s products and services. You’ll be responsible not only for managing our networks and infrastructure, but working across the company with a variety of teams to define our cloud and system architecture. You’ve probably got a strong background in networking and *nix operating systems, and have spent some time applying this knowledge to cloud environments. In addition to formidable technical skills, you’ve got great communication skills as well: you know how to build consensus across a wide range of stakeholders and work effectively with peers in a variety of disciplines. In a given week you might work on improving an AMI, implementing a strategy for governance across all AWS accounts, improving our DNS infrastructure and consulting with service teams on how to optimize their use of cloud resources.


  • At least 8 years of progressive experience in technical roles
  • Strong background in *nix operating systems
  • Strong background in networking - firewalls, networks and protocols
  • Experience scripting in at least one language
  • Experience with at least one major cloud platform (AWS preferred)
  • Experience with an infrastructure-as-code system such as Terraform or CloudFormation (Terraform preferred)
  • Experience working with CI/CD pipelines and source control
  • Experience working in a regulated environment or with customers who have strong audit/compliance requirements is a plus
