    Headquarters: Massachusetts, USA


    The role

    We’re looking for a passionate, skilled, polyglot Cloud Infrastructure Engineer to join our team.

    The Cloud Infrastructure Engineer works on projects with LCM’s government clients to improve their digital experiences. The role requires experience in several different technologies, working closely with stakeholders to extract requirements and advocate for technological best practices. The Cloud Infrastructure Engineer is an expert at creating solutions.

    Last Call Media is a remote-first global digital consultancy with team members on four continents. This role can work from anywhere in the United States with a strong internet connection, as long as you can reliably commit to at least 5 hours of overlap with morning New York time (ET), Monday through Friday. 

    What you’ll do

    Work with team members to develop, maintain, and implement large, distributed systems.
    Participate in team and company retrospectives to help define and refine working agreements and processes to help us work more effectively together as a team. 
    Work with frontend and full-stack developers to define data requirements and interoperability.

    What you’ll bring

    Demonstrable experience in 2 or more of the following technologies (ideally in an enterprise environment):
    NodeJS (especially backend, including browser automation with tools like Puppeteer and Playwright)
    Python (especially as it pertains to data engineering with tools like Apache Airflow)
    Terraform (especially as it pertains to AWS)
    Databases (Postgres preferred)
    Solid knowledge of cloud best practices
    AWS certifications
    Fluent spoken and written English

    It’d be nice if you also had

    Experience with continuous Integration solutions using GitHub Actions, CodeBuild, or similar.
    Experience with serverless deployment (the concept, not the framework).
    Experience working on a project integrating many different languages or components.
    General comfort on the command line.
    Familiarity with Atlassian tools (Jira and Confluence).
    Experience working remotely.

    About Last Call Media

    Last Call Media is a 10+ year old company that started in Massachusetts, USA, and we’ve been fully remote since 2017.

    How We Work

    We like to do work with purpose; a lot of our clients are higher ed, non-profit and charities, and government contracts with state/city departments.

    Last Call Media has a nontraditional company structure; we have no “people managers” and the individuals that do really well here are self-starters who can work independently, but know when to ask for help. 

    We’re a highly collaborative environment. From the projects we work on to the way our company is run, we believe that the more perspectives we’re able to take into account, the better things will be. We like to maintain alignment by checking in early and often and communicating frequently. We like to avoid people completing large deliverables in a vacuum, where misalignments can grow large.

    Because of our nontraditional company structure, our highly collaborative environment, and our frequent check-ins, we approach accountability a little differently than many other organizations by having a high level of trust with everyone. Our work is the product of our collaboration–if improvements need to be made, we approach them as a team as opposed to placing blame on individuals.

    Last Call encourages people to maintain a good work/life balance. People do not work on weekends, and we do not interrogate people who want to take time off. We do ask that all employees schedule their work days to have at least a five hour overlap with 9:00 am – 5:00 pm eastern time (EDT/EST), but how that ends up working out is different for everyone. All that matters is that your team can count on you to attend meetings and meet project deadlines.
    We heavily utilize Slack and Jira for frequent daily communication. Other tools in our belt include Google Apps (Gmail, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc.), Confluence, Harvest, and more that are specific to specialized teams. Teams at LCM are based around a specific project, and will have their own meeting cadences (daily standup, retros, etc.) as well. Almost everyone at Last Call is a member of one or more teams, and we come together as a company (virtually) regularly.

    All of us at LCM pride ourselves on being:

    Able to empathize, which helps us understand the needs of the client, the customer, the product, and the team at LCM 
    Highly communicative
    Able to work independently
    Comfortable asking for help
    Experienced with communicating with clients directly
    Eager and motivated to learn new concepts
    Team players in a collaborative environment
    Fast learners

    Compensation & How To Apply:

    If this position already sounds like you or where you’re headed, please apply. Applications must be completed in English.
