Svitla Systems Inc. is looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer for a full-time position (40 hours per week) in Costa Rica. Our client is the leading GPS fleet-tracking software technology provider for fleet-based companies. They provide innovative fleet solutions that include vehicle and asset tracking, in-cab smart cameras, field service software, and compliance management. The company offers vehicle tracking solutions, a dashboard interface, a mapping platform, mobile applications, landmarks, geofencing, optimized routing, fleet messaging and tracking alerts, and fuel card integration services. The client operates worldwide and provides a highly flexible solution, including a wide range of customized reports, alerts, and other innovative features tailored to meet specific customer requirements. We’re seeking a Senior Infrastructure Engineer to further global infrastructure practice as they scale and unify the AWS-based platforms.

This hands-on role has ample opportunity for impact as they continue to solve the complex problems of scaling multiple products. There will be a mix between operational and project-based work with a wide range of complexity. The infrastructure engineering team works closely with software engineers and product management in cross-functional teams and projects. The AWS infrastructure provides the platforms for four telematics products and three field service management applications. They rely heavily on Terraform, containers, Kubernetes, Helm, Ansible Tower, GitLab CI, and Datadog but also support Windows-based .NET applications.
