Who You Are
We are looking for a talented and knowledgeable DevOps engineer who is passionate about infrastructure and automation to join our growing team for full-time on-site work. Familiarity with cloud solutions is a plus, but most of our VMs run on our own hardware, so you’ll need to know how to think outside of the AWS box. You should be a fast learner with strong communication skills who knows how to build and program reliable, well documented, systems. While knowledge of Linux server administration is essential, the ideal candidate has had experience with Python web development and is a little closer to a developer than a systems or network administrator.
We welcome out-of-town applicants willing to relocate to the DC metro area for full time on site work, but are currently unable to sponsor applicants unauthorized to work in the United States.
Employees at The Atlantic are entitled to benefits including: 401(k) savings plan with employer match, health care with domestic partner coverage, flexible vacation and sick leave policy, commuter benefits, and rooftop happy hours with one of the best views in DC.

Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in you, and everyone else. In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions –
