Who We Are:

The world’s economies must transition to zero-carbon. With real estate representing 65% of global wealth and 40% of carbon emissions, there is no carbon-free future without carbon-free buildings. This is why we exist, and why we need you.

Audette is creating carbon reduction plans for every existing building on the planet. We apply building science and machine learning to model the most important features that contribute to carbon emissions. Our platform turns data into retrofit strategies for commercial real estate’s zero-carbon future.

The Opportunity:

We are seeking an accomplished Senior/Lead Cloud Engineer who thrives in a space of constant change and problem solving. Reporting to the Director of Technology, you’ll play a pivotal role in building our next generation SaaS platform that will deliver ground-breaking carbon intelligence to the entire planet. This is a service-oriented position that will hold the advocacy for security, reliability and DevOps within the organization. You will be instrumental in the development of others, so being a passionate leader will help you get the most out of your team. We understand leadership is always evolving, and we are committed to helping you develop within that space. This role is best suited for a generalist who is unattached to a particular platform, or tool, and is comfortable working in all aspects of technology stacks and cloud systems, with an emphasis on DevSecOps/SRE.

What you’ll do: 

● Build a small, customer-focused team driven to scale securely

● Advocate for industry best practices and help to train and mentor other team members

● Evolve the organization by identifying risks and opportunities and taking initiative to find solutions proactively 

● Plan and execute both cloud growth and cost optimization strategy 

● Scale cloud operations around monitoring, security and compliance, reliability, and multi-cloud

● Take advantage of learning opportunities to keep your skills current, then share this

knowledge with stakeholders and other engineers.

● Develop expertise in a technology or system that is unique in the organization.

What’s in it for you?

Impact, Influence & Ownership - This is a ground-floor opportunity where your contributions will directly affect not only the success of the company but the community as well. You will create frameworks and foundational services that will grow to planetary scale. Your expertise will be vital to our success and will support strategic decision making within the organization. You’ll get to work on challenging problems with a team of Building Science and Software Engineers while having a major impact over our technology, product and company culture.

Growth & Development - Our rapid growth offers career development and mobility both upward and laterally. We believe in supporting our people with their career goals every step of the way, and we are committed to long term success with each person. We want you to love what you do every day!

Collaboration - Work with a diverse, cross-functional, multidisciplinary team of smart, motivated humans. We believe that diversity and inclusion are critical to success and we strive to ensure everyone has a voice.

What you bring:

Experience. You come with a deep understanding of implementing core cloud services in a production environment. You have proficiency in CLI use for managing and debugging services in multiple operating systems and environments, utilizing common scripting languages and formats. You will be a security expert that can use analysis to perform system assessments and then create action plans when necessary. You have the confidence to own security for the organization, delivering compliant solutions at scale.

You will also have recent and in depth experience with:

● Multi-Cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP)

● CI/CD, IaC, Virtual Machines and containerization, and monitoring/alerting

● Off the shelf and custom enterprise monitoring and reporting

● Passing compliance audits with industry standard cybersecurity frameworks (PCI DSS / NIST/ FISMA / GDPR)

Growth Mindset. You are open to new ideas and motivated to take on challenges, thriving in an ambiguous environment. You’re excited to utilize cutting edge technology, and to be continuously learning and growing. You can research and apply best practices, document and implement processes, drawing on past insights and sharing knowledge with your team.  You respond to change by adapting and can quickly pivot when the situation calls for it. You have a commitment to value delivery, with a confidence that allows you to take risks and grow when facing difficult challenges and missteps.

Leadership skills. You are curious, and continuously empower each contributor in your team.  You practice empathetic leadership through kindness and honesty, partnered with mindful communication skills to foster transparency.  You hold yourself and others to high standards of accountability, raising the bar of excellence with every delivery.  You drive engagement through a blameless culture of ownership, instilling confidence by supporting them through risk taking with strong mentorship. Lastly, you value what a diverse team can accomplish and strive for a culture of inclusion, safety, and learning on your team. 

Together, we’re creating something unprecedented to tackle a huge global problem. To make this happen, we strive to create a best-in-class workplace in many areas, including continuous skills improvement, servant leadership, empathic communication, high-trust culture, and more.

We know not everyone gains their education and skills the traditional way, especially those within a marginalized group, so if you feel you have most of the qualifications we are looking for and you are ready to make a difference, submit your application. We promise to consider the full scope of who you are and what you bring.
