Senior DevOps Engineer (US Remote or On-Site) - Genosity

Senior DevOps Engineer (US Remote or On-Site)

Genosity is hiring US-based, full-time senior DevOps engineers to transition our SaaS genomics platform to an in house operations team. Your team will be responsible for running user-facing services and production systems, helping to build the foundation for rapid, reliable product delivery. Your team will instill best practices for building scalable distributed systems, with a focus on observability, automation, auditability, and fault tolerance.
