Cervest is building the world's first open access AI-powered Climate Intelligence platform.

We’re a Certified B Corporation with a vision to build a climate intelligent world — one where everyone is able to use Climate Intelligence to adapt with climate change. By making Climate Intelligence open, democratised and transparent we will power a global Climate Intelligent Network™ that drives a chain reaction of climate intelligent decisions to protect the world’s critical assets, including our greatest asset — the planet.

Using our flagship EarthScanTM product, anyone can discover how current and future climate events such as flooding, droughts, and extreme temperatures will impact their assets. EarthScan helps our customers confidently de-risk decisions, meet financial disclosure needs and improve the resilience of the assets they own, manage or rely on.

As a company, we are a pro-diversity, highly inclusive organization, committed to bringing together people of all backgrounds and enabling them to succeed. We know that a richly diverse team will help us achieve our mission sooner.

The role: 

As Cervest scales, we are seeking a Director of Infrastructure to own our technology SDLC and cloud ecosystem.

  • Functional ownership: You will be responsible for all things infrastructure-related: Devops, Cloudops, Security, SRE, and more.
  • People leadership and mentorship: Because of this broad surface area, you’ll need to hire and grow leaders on your team, who will drive meaningful outcomes on all these dimensions.
  • Technical direction setting: We use a lot of great tools and technologies (k8s, Terraform, AWS, Github, etc.), but you will be responsible for evolving and enhancing our topology to optimize velocity.
  • Metrics and monitoring: Being a data company, we want data to inform our decision making.  You will own the data that demonstrates how efficiently we are delivering software, how well we are reacting to issues, and the ops around our platform.
  • Platformizing our ops: Our development teams are responsible for the products and features they deliver.  Your team will provide a platformized infrastructure that will standardize performance, efficiency, resiliency, change management, and incident response.
  • Enterprise grade delivery: Our customers are massive organizations that rely on our data to make million dollar decisions.  Your cloud ecosystem will provide for this massive scale and high uptime, and hold our dev teams to that standard.
  • Technology velocity: We are creating a category, and we are first to market.  We will maintain and augment that lead only if our technologists and scientists have a high velocity ecosystem.  Your team will facilitate this velocity!


Requirements:

  • Strong industry experience: 12+ years of software industry experience, including management of infrastructure teams.
  • Set the standard: You’ve been the torchbearer.  You’ve designed the standards for how a broad engineering team should operate, metricized and held them accountable, and enabled them through your team’s efforts.
  • Infrastructure leadership: You’ve led teams that have implemented the standards you’ve set, and demonstrably impacted the larger organization.
  • Complex architectures: You’ve designed, implemented, and maintained high complexity infrastructure ecosystems, supporting large teams and enterprise grade delivery.
  • Cloud experience: You have deep experience in a wide variety of cloud functionality, infrastructure as code, issue alerting and remediation, and high-uptime services.
  • Security, geography, and resiliency: You’ve dealt with enterprise data, security controls and data management, globally distributed cloud software, incident response, and disaster recovery.
