Job Description:
About Sirono: 
We are a well-funded medical software startup located in the South Park neighborhood of San Francisco. Our team of 12 represents diverse, highly skilled individuals all motivated by a shared passion for changing healthcare. Our objective is to create smarter software products characterized by user centric design and embedded clinical decision support. 

It used to be that hospitals collected income primarily from insurance companies, but with the recent shift to high-deductible plans, a lot of income now is from patients directly. Sadly, however, all of the infrastructure is still optimized to collect from insurance companies rather than patients. Sirono lays out infrastructure to help hospitals change this focus. Our interface will help patients better understand their bills, and they'll get financing options and more convenient ways to pay. In the end, this will greatly reduce the costs of healthcare for everyone by better enabling those willing and able to pay to actually do so. 

The Role: 
We're looking for a Systems Engineer to join our team and help keep our systems up, running, and scaling. Our current infrastructure consists of a handful of server instances, with a goal of high availability and continuous deployment. We are looking for someone who's managed deployments across multiple servers and tiers of infrastructure and is comfortable scaling up a system as we grow. Our ideal candidate is someone who enjoys taking on big complex problems systematically and distilling them in order to create solutions. We like highly motivated and self directed folks who enjoy working in a fast paced environment. 

Here are some of the things you'll do: 
* Provision, secure and maintain servers on Amazon EC2 
* Work closely with our development team to make decisions about growing and scaling infrastructure 
* Investigate anomalous behavior by watching app metrics, diagnosing and addressing system problems, and checking security & audit logs 
* Use and maintain infrastructure automation (we're using Ansible right now) 
* Support frequent code deploys and work towards continuous deployment 
* Maintain our Postgres database cluster, backups, and regularly test failover procedures 

The Tech: 
* HAProxy, Nginx, Gunicorn, Python, Django, PgBouncer, Postgres, Munin, Celery 
* We're hosted on a Debian based Linux on Amazon EC2 
* We have automated provisioning and management using Ansible 

Our Ideal Candidate Has: 
* Experience deploying and maintaining an application across multiple servers using automated configuration tools like Ansible, Puppet, Chef, etc. 
* Familiarity with basic Unix tools like grep, pipes, users, filesystems, logging, etc. 
* Git experience 
* Experience maintaining a multi-node database cluster 

* More than one of PCI, HIPAA, SOX or FISMA compliance experience 
* Security knowledge & familiarity with best practices 

Why Join Us? 
Well, we think that the best reason to join us is the opportunity to work on solving some of the biggest inefficiencies in healthcare. That said, we're also committed to a high quality of life for our team, and we offer several perks in addition to a competitive salary. These include: 
* medical/dental/vision benefits 
* catered meals 
* dog friendly workspace 
* relocation assistance
