RightHand Robotics (RHR) is building a world-class team to solve the biggest problem in e-commerce logistics: how to fulfill orders, despite demand that’s growing at six times the rate of available labor. Our cutting-edge robotic picking systems manipulate hundreds of thousands of items - it’s a software driven, hardware-enabled technology that meets the increasing demands of e-commerce order fulfillment and other industries.

We're looking for a seasoned Cloud DevOps Engineer to help us launch an array of cloud-based data ingestion, processing, storage, and analytics platforms operating on petabyte-scale data gathered (24/7) from our robotic systems in-the-field, across the globe.

You will work with a team of best-in-class software engineers and provide the expertise + hands-on development to automate the creation of cloud infrastructure (on GCP) necessary to power the data platform, including handling the necessary virtual networking required to ensure everything can securely communicate with internal, and external traffic.


  • Are excited to be embedded in a best-in-class engineering team
  • Are collaborative by nature and look forward to working with others
  • Thrive on designing and launching exciting new technology
  • Enjoy challenges and solving difficult problems
  • Are a big picture/systematic thinker
  • Are a self-starter, with a “get stuff done right” (G.S.D.R.) attitude
  • Enjoy a fast-paced start-up environment
  • Are analytical and data-focused
  • Are excited to continuously learn new technologies, skills, and platforms

You will:

  • Deploy systems ranging from microservices, database clusters, and message brokers via IaC (Infrastructure-as-Code) tools such as Terraform, Ansible, and Kubernetes
  • Design + manage deployments of popular open-source systems such as Postgres, RabbitMQ, Elasticsearch, FastAPI, NextJS, and others
  • Architect + configure virtual networking in order to facilitate secure communication between internal platform components/systems and external traffic between trusted sources
  • Troubleshoot, build, and push containers using technologies such as Docker
  • Deploy resources and containerized workloads using container orchestration platforms such as Kubernetes
  • If remote, be available to communicate roughly during EST hours

Required skills/experience:

  • B.S. in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or equivalent
  • 5+ years working with a cloud infrastructure platform (GCP, AWS, Azure)
  • Basic understanding/knowledge of Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
  • 7+ years working in a Linux development environment
  • Proficiency in Python (3.x) or similar language (5+ years experience)
  • Production experience with Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) tools and technologies
  • Deep knowledge of containerization and related technologies
  • Working knowledge of Kubernetes and/or cluster management systems
  • Experience with event-driven systems and related tech (RabbitMQ, Kafka, etc.)
  • Software development experience outside of DevOps/Infrastructure
  • Demonstrated track-record of strong collaboration and cross-functional work
  • Firm understanding of distributed systems + underlying technology and algorithms
  • Experience in a production software development environment (version control, automated testing, build tools)


  • Experience with Terraform provisioning infrastructure
  • Experience with Ansible configuring infrastructure
  • Production experience with Kubernetes (Managed Kubernetes, Helm, kubectl, etc.)
  • Experience working in/with robotics and/or automation technology

We offer:

  • Hybrid working arrangement determined by you (no minimums and/or specific days)
  • Open to fully-remote for highly qualified candidates with demonstrated track records
  • The chance to make a visible impact at a rapidly growing company
  • Passionate and fun teammates
