Job Description

Have you ever thought money managers charge too much for investment advice? You are right. At Aperio Group, our strategies are designed to minimize costs and to place environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations at the center of our investment advice. This approach results in sustainable and ethical investing. We are a quantitative/index-tracking investment management firm with more than $25 billion in assets under management. We specialize in managing customized equity portfolios in a tax-efficient way. Our headquarters are in Sausalito, only one block from the beautiful harbor. It’s a short, 20-minute drive from much of San Francisco (opposite the normal commute), and many of our team members are spread throughout San Francisco, the North Bay, and East Bay.


For everything that Aperio does, we use custom-developed software. Therefore, software is the bloodstream of our company. Decisions that we make on a daily basis are automated and data driven, requiring minimal human intervention. We are looking for a DevOps engineer who can help us automate configuration and maintain concurrent environments, facilitate utilization of cloud platforms, and help us scale as the company grows. The role is open for a senior-level, hands-on engineer who wants to become a part of an amazing team.

You will join a (relatively) hip team, and everyone who works here is great—not just good—at what they do. That’s by design. We give our best every day, and we want to maintain that standard. We like having fun, so we play board games during lunch time and spike ball and kick ball after work.

Interested candidates must include a cover letter and salary expectations. To submit your application, please visit https://aperiogroup.bamboohr.com/jobs/view.php?id=62Please do not contact anyone at the company directly.


What You Will Be Doing

  • Establish build, release, and configuration management of production systems
  • Automate deployment, monitoring, maintenance, and management of production software on premise and in cloud environments
  • Maintain segregated environment across projects and phases of development (dev, staging, qa, prod)
  • Take ownership of release process across environments
  • Facilitate change propagation across environments
  • Establish and enforce change management procedures for each project/environment
  • Maintain documentation describing topology of the whole development ecosystem
  • Serve as the first line of defense when production issues occur and assist the help desk in triage of issues


Your Preferred Profile

  • You have done all of the above (among other things) for at least five years in an enterprise environment
  • (A lot of) experience with at least one modern cloud ecosystem (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, etc.)
  • You think containerization/virtualization is better than sliced bread, and you have worked with at least one platform (Docker, Vagrant, etc.)
  • Experience with provisioning tools used for automated deployment (Puppet, Ansible, etc.)
  • Experience with build tools used in continuous integration environments (Jenking, Circle CI, Travis, etc.)
  • Deep knowledge of security best practices


Bonus Points for This Role

  • BS or higher degree in a discipline that teaches data structures, flow control, and relational databases
  • Experience setting up and maintaining continuous integration environments where feature tracking, source control, build/deploy, and testing environments are connected and part of automated process
  • Experience in the financial services or investment management sector
  • You think the profile description was, at least, slightly interesting!
