We have tremendous ambitions and have a lot of fun pursuing them — if that excites you, we would love to have you join us. 

About the Role: 

As the Head of SRE and DevOps at Capsule you will focus on our cloud infrastructure, services, and tooling supporting the Engineering organization. You will be a strong partner to other engineering leaders by building a roadmap that supports the organization’s growth and scale over the next year. You will provide leadership and mentorship to all direct reports, building out strong SRE and DevOps functions internally at Capsule.

What You’ll Do:

  • Gather stakeholder requirements and convert them into a strategic roadmap and quarterly OKRs. 
  • Drive a strong focus on tooling to support CI/CD pipelines, SRE, and Cloud infrastructure.
  • Set clear expectations for engineers and deliver results.
  • Be an advocate for your team’s needs across the Engineering organization.
  • Lead and mentor wide swaths of engineering both implicitly and explicitly by setting standards and empowering others to do their best work.


  • You have 10+ years of industry experience supporting engineering teams with infrastructure, CI/CD tools, and SRE.
  • You have 7+ years managing high-performing teams that exemplify a culture of excellence.
  • You enjoy building a best-in-class infrastructure while enabling engineers to do their best work.
  • You thrive in a dynamic, fast-paced, collaborative, and high-growth environment.
  • You understand the trade-offs in employing different technical solutions to a problem, valuing pragmatism over idealism.

About You:

  • You take pride in enabling the best work of others on the team. You think ahead to anticipate the needs of your teammates and you give and get all the facts making it easy for others to make decisions.
  • You drive results in a way that makes everyone better. You accomplish ambitious objectives while uplifting the team around you. You're a magnet for team members looking to get better and be successful.
  • You work hard and want to have fun while you do so. You celebrate wins and remember to enjoy the journey as we build something iconic.
  • You can work both fast and right and don't view them as trade-offs. You understand when things require precision and accuracy and where 80% gets you to the desired outcome.
  • You thrive on being pushed and challenged. You communicate effectively both in written form and live / on your feet - you are not fazed by tough questions in the moment. 
  • You strike the right balance between putting enough work in to share something, but not going off into a corner for weeks at a time to polish something to perfection.
  • You operate like an owner and expect others to as well. You take personal responsibility and value personal responsibility in others. 
  • You check your ego at the door. You are interested in finding the right answer vs. always having the right answer.
