About the role


Who We Are?

We are a group of people who give a damn. We believe in doing what’s right and speaking up, even when it’s difficult. We pursue success, humbly.


We're a fully remote company, so you can live and work just about wherever you want, as long as it meets any role-specific location or time zone requirements (which are outlined below). Just make sure you have a reliable internet connection.


We bridge time zones and distance with thorough and transparent communication, and processes designed to empower and support each other. We’re a company of people from a variety of backgrounds, with a range of perspectives, which makes us stronger. We frequently work in cross-functional teams, and you’ll get to work with awesome people in all different roles in the company. We leave our egos at the door and value input and ideas from everyone at the company.



How Do We Work?


Live Where You Want

We’re a hybrid of co-located and distributed teams, so you can live and work just about wherever you want.

No Crazy Hours

We’re all adults and we trust each other to manage our time appropriately. There’s no need to punch a clock or ask for permission to take off early one afternoon to go see the doctor. We look at what you accomplish, not how long you are in front of a computer. We work hard and smart, but we’re in this for the long haul.

Responsible Time Off


We want you to take time off; it makes you happier, healthier, and more productive. In fact, we have an unlimited time off policy, plus two mandatory weeks for a holiday break in December/January. It’s important you take the time you need, whether you’re caring for your health, the health of a family member, or going on vacation. (We look forward to seeing pictures of your trip in #the-pub Slack channel!) Be mindful of Black Friday through Cyber Monday. That’s our merchants’ busiest time of the year, and we need all-hands-on-deck just in case.

Grow and Learn


We aren’t satisfied with what we already know; we want to learn more and we want you to as well. Think conferences (when those are a thing again), online courses and resources, and dedicated time away to learn something new…it’s up to you and your manager. Let us know what you need.


The Role

As a senior DevOps engineer at CartHook, you will be responsible for all aspects of the server infrastructure and development environments at our company. Additionally, you will architect, define and maintain our database and models, and ensure our systems can keep up their high performance and responsiveness.

You will also join us in sprint planning and retrospectives and have the opportunity to make a lasting impact on our stack and the future of e-commerce.
