COMPANY DESCRIPTION

Based out of London, Ontario since 2003; Control Play develops custom business entertainment products for themed entertainment venues throughout North America. We strongly believe in the power of entertainment and what it can achieve for a business’s relationship with their customer. Everything we do focuses on creating the highest quality entertainment experience for the guests of the businesses that subscribe to our services.
Our team members enjoy flexible working hours, a casual working environment, as well as snacks and beverages throughout the workday. We celebrate success as a group and strive to make each other as productive as possible, all while having fun doing it.

PLEASE NOTE: Current openings are in our London, ON offices. We support remote work for all employees.  While we remain open to fully remote candidates, we prefer candidates who would be able to be on-premises at least weekly.

JOB DESCRIPTION

We are seeking a Senior DevOps specialist excited about applying a development mindset to accelerate and enhance all technical elements of our team.
To us, Senior means a candidate with relevant experience who is excited about taking ownership of several projects, consulting where required while ensuring that the projects remain aligned with our strategic direction.  The position will have the autonomy to complete projects and choose architectures that result in the best possible product experience.
This is not a simple IT position.  A fundamental understanding of our customers and products will be essential as this position takes ownership of those experiences from start to finish.  The ideal candidate will have several specialties and an open mind for tackling a wide assortment of new technical challenges.  The ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of software internals and have experience developing code and scripts.  Prior software development experience will be preferred.

We embrace new technologies and expect success in this position to continue to leverage infrastructure automation to maximize performance, balance costs and most importantly, make the product the best it can be.  Time is our most precious resource, and we seek opportunities to streamline operations as much as practical for our development team and elsewhere throughout the company.

Our operations require traditional IT effort including local and remote networking, security, NAS, enterprise backup, server, WAN and IP telephony.  We have built a significant technology stack as a group of developers learning “IT” as we go and strongly believe that a development-first mindset will be essential moving forward.
Our customers rely on our services 24×7, 365 and to deliver on our promises we maintain a large active monitoring system.  Extending this monitoring system by developing new checks, responding to issues and ideally predicting them is a key component of this position.  There are exciting opportunities to expand and enhance our monitoring system and work with the software developers.

Current technology focuses:

  • AWS EC2, ElasticCache, ECS, RDS, S3 and many more
  • MySQL & Redis
  • Centos variants, Windows Servers
  • CheckMK
  • Ansible
  • C#, PowerShell and bash
  • Watchguard & Cisco Networking hardware
  • Office365, local and Azure Active Directory
  • Digium Switchvox SIP PBX

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Owing product monitoring and response
  • Server & service performance tuning & scaling
  • Deployment pipelines
  • Log analysis, transformation, and reporting
  • QA & Testing
  • On site IT

REQUIREMENTS

  • Relevant professional experience in several related technologies.
  • Candidates with a Bachelors or Master’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related discipline will have an advantage.
  • Strong English language communication skills, both written and verbal.

PERKS

  • Modern, flexible and customizable workspace with multi-monitor PC.
  • Spacious modern Dev Studio.
  • Unlimited snacks.
  • Fully stocked beverage fridge w/ soda, energy drinks, and juices.
  • Competitive pay, bonuses, and relocation costs (if applicable).

If you enjoy the challenge of solving technical problems, brainstorming fresh and new ideas, then this may be the opportunity for you.
We look forward to hearing from you and welcome you to apply by sending your resume to employment@controlplay.com. We thank you for your interest, but only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.
