  • How can we merge tools and processes between different teams in ACS and Autodesk at large
  • How can we simplify onboarding to our cloud infrastructure for new teams and products joining ACS

    • Built high-availability and resiliency around database clusters through tear-down infrastructure testing

Do you know your way around Docker, Bash, and Python? If so, we'd love to talk with you.Are you passionate about getting in front of problems instead of waiting until things are on fire? Do you dream of stability, love metrics, communicate well, document your code, and relish building reliable systems that hum along and take care of themselves?
