Cloud FinOps Engineer

What you’ll do:

Most teams at Torc leverage services in public clouds, and we need experts in engineering optimal, cost-effective solutions that report, forecast and govern our cloud spending.  We take an automation-first approach to all cloud systems at Torc, so FinOps is no exception.  As an engineer in FinOps, a few of your responsibilities will include:

  • Developing software tools and automation for cloud cost optimization
  • Aggregating and reporting on multi-account AWS cost and usage reporting into a single data lake
  • Creating governance on cloud spending
  • Reviewing new and existing system architectures
  • Budgeting and forecasting
  • Making data-driven decisions on long-term commitments, reserved capacity and other optimizations

How We Work:
We work in a distributed team with a remote-first mindset. By that we just mean that we work to ensure everyone is on the same playing field in terms of collaboration and information, regardless of where they work. We collaborate frequently in many different forms including daily stand-ups, planning meetings, and many ad-hoc discussions/brainstorming/troubleshooting/pairing sessions over zoom or slack. Our team is operationally responsible for the services we own, so we do have an on-call rotation in place where each member will take a turn serving as the front-line to incidents for our services. Rotations last a week each, during business hours. We value maintaining a healthy work/life balance and prefer sustainable development over heroic efforts.

What you’ll need to Succeed:

  • BS/MS Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or related field
  • A strong commitment to test-driven development patterns, continuous integration and delivery, and infrastructure as code
  • Strong knowledge of AWS or other public cloud services

Bonus Points!

  • Strong organizational, time management, and communication skills working with a team orientation and collaborative style
  • Identity and Access Management tooling experience
