Clio is more than just a tech company–we are a global leader that is transforming the legal experience for all by bettering the lives of legal professionals while increasing access to justice.

We're looking for a Junior Systems Engineer, Production to join our rapidly growing Production Engineer, Systems team. This role is for someone who is passionate about building innovative solutions and being exposed to new challenges and technologies while making an impact. This role is available to candidates across Canada, excluding Quebec.

What your team does:

Clio is looking for a Systems Engineer, Production to join the team that builds and manages the infrastructure that underlies the development and runtime of our applications.

We're building a cross-Canada, distributed team that forms the foundation of Clio's engineering organization:

  • We build, secure, and maintain the infrastructure and critical services that power Clio’s core applications.
  • We help Clions make data-driven decisions by providing observability and transparency for all of our environments.
  • We collaborate with the Clio product development teams to build tools that improve workflows and remove manual labour or friction points.

Who you are:

  • You are a self-starting and self-governing learner and worker who is adept at breaking down intractable problems into achievable pieces and iterating on them.
  • You are curious by nature and love to dig deep on problems, always asking “Why?”.
  • You communicate in a clear and concise manner, regardless of medium (text, voice, and in-person).
  • You are a rational and critical thinker, with an inclination for evidence-based decision making.
  • You have strong opinions that are weakly held.
  • You have a team-first mentality and will naturally step in to support co-workers when you perceive them to be in difficulty.

What you'll work on:

  • You will be creating, improving, and maintaining a globally distributed mesh of Clio service regions that acts as a foundation for each of our clients across the world to excel within their respective jurisdictions.
  • You will be nurturing and evolving the development ecosystem at Clio by providing the tools, infrastructure, and services that our developers rely on to transform the practice of law, for good.
  • You’ll be recognizing opportunities for process improvement or automation and then writing clean, maintainable code in order to erase the manual task or nullify the pain point.

What you may have:

This is not a check-list to be satisfied. If you have experience or interest in some of these areas, we’d love to hear from you and encourage you to apply.

  • Experience writing clean, maintainable code in collaboration with other developers.
  • Experience building and administering Debian GNU/Linux hosts using automated image build and configuration management tools.
  • Experience building and deploying containerized services using an orchestration system.
  • Experience administering cloud resources on the common cloud providers (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud) using automated resource configuration and provisioning tools.

Don’t have all of those? The most important part of this job is that you approach new challenges with curiosity and a drive to apply what you learn to fixing root causes, not just symptoms. Deep curiosity and a desire to learn will help you succeed in this job, combined with a drive to help others by shipping code. We have cross-trained developers coming from Java, Python, C++, and JavaScript backgrounds, and are happy to help you learn Ruby when you get here.

Serious bonus points if you have:

  • Experience managing hosts with Puppet.
  • Experience working with Docker and Kubernetes.
  • Experience developing with Ruby or GoLang.
  • Experience managing AWS resources with CloudFormation.
  • Experience scripting with BASH.
  • Experience administering any of: Elasticsearch, Kafka, MySQL, Redis.
