Description

Mintel’s talented Infrastructure team is spread between our London and Chicago offices, where we support a range of IT services and products supporting our staff and client deliverables.  In the last year, Mintel has been engaged in building a proof-of-concept cloud-based product using AWS infrastructure.  We are now looking to add a full-time engineer to build and drive implementation of this infrastructure to make our deployment of this project manageable in the medium and long-term.

  • Your job is to work on a new AWS deployment which is provisioned using Terraform and Chef.  This is Mintel’s first large scale deployment with AWS, and we need to continue work on making the platform production-ready by evolving our Terraform structure, building a monitoring system, and refining security access controls

 

What We Are Looking For:

  • 3+ years of professional experience with AWS deployment management (ideally using Hashicorp Terraform)
  • Production experience in AWS:
    • Automated deployment of large / complex infrastructure & services using Terraform
    • VPC, IAM, S3 and policy management, cross-account IAM delegation, ECS
  • Experience with Instance-level configuration management tools like Chef, Puppet, Ansible, CFEngine, Waffles
  • Knowledge of deployment and management of Elasticsearch clusters would be preferred
  • Familiarity with standard configuration best practices such as idempotence, first-run convergence of policies
  • Track record of careful operation of live IT systems
  • Experience with cloud-ready monitoring systems
