Comfy is on a mission to create amazing workplace experiences.
We are a leading workplace app provider that connects people,
places and systems. We started by solving the number one complaint
in the office (temperature!), and continue to expand to our product
suite to give employees greater control over their workplace,
including room booking, lighting and feedback. We create amazing
workplace experiences through a consumer-facing app for employees
and solve real business problems for corporate real estate teams.
Headquartered in Oakland, California, with expertise in machine
learning, UX design and enterprise service, Comfy develops software
solutions for everyone - from the people who operate the building
to the people who fill it.
About the Role
Comfy is looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer to help build the
infrastructure that runs our next generation of our Comfy app.
Having successfully deployed the first generation of our app--which
provided end users with an intuitive way to control the temperature
within their building, learning their preferences in the
process--we are now well into the next generation, which extends
into a range of IT, OT, and IoT use cases (including room booking,
access control, wayfinding, and visitor management). We are also
expanding into new regions to support our growing customer
As the complexity and scale of our app grows, we need
experienced DevOps engineers to help us maintain and automate our
day-to-day operations. We also need someone who understands and has
experience in maintaining enterprise level application security
We're at the cutting-edge intersection of IoT and mobile apps,
which means a lot of never-before-solved challenges around
statefulness; cross-system synchronization; and redundancy. You'll
be part of the brain-trust that our engineering and product
leadership will rely on to advise us on what's possible, what's
sensible, and what's simple. In order to do that, you'll need to
have technical depth; systems thinking; and communication skills to
evaluate trade-offs around performance, cost, reliability, and
scale. This is the ideal role for someone who's ready to move their
career to the next level in terms of technical influence and scope

You are hands on and you are intellectually curious. You learn by
doing. You are not afraid to roll up your sleeves to debug and
You are a strong communicator and you value well articulated
solutions by creating diagrams and well written documentations. You
also understand that sometimes stakeholders and customers will look
for your guidance and you're not afraid to engage them when the
situation calls for it.
Agile development is second-nature. Not only will you be expected
to participate in daily scrums, backlog grooming, sprint planning
anm, and retros; you'll have a chance to provide input to improve
