DevOps Engineer

DevOps Engineer

Bridgit is a community of hard-working people who want to make a difference in the construction industry. Some of us have been here since the early days, while some joined more recently. Our average tenure is 3+ years and every employee survey tells us that our team loves the people they work with at Bridgit. We are proud of our average tenure but we also know that there is no such thing as ‘one size fits all’ and sometimes individual and organizational goals simply don’t align. 

We can talk about the perks and benefits that our team members are entitled to but those are icing on the cake. What you really get out of our environment is OPPORTUNITY – to build your career portfolio, to affect change (in your own team and in an industry as big as construction), to touch and solve problems you otherwise wouldn’t have known, to grow in ways you probably haven’t thought of. Here’s the fine print though – opportunities are only as big as the heart you put into it. That’s why we’re not for everyone.

In the last 3 years, our team members have been part of reaching the following milestones: 

  • A successful product pivot and building a market-winning position
  • Series B Financing
  • Top tier performance across all SaaS Metrics
  • Paving the path to profitability 
  • The transition to remote-first working environment 

Bridgit is like a big personality that walks into a room – you either love it or you hate it, but there’s no way you’ll ignore it. When loved, we’re loved fiercely. The ones who succeed here know how that feels.

The DevOps Team at Bridgit

Here at Bridgit we’re always learning and iterating to continually build efficient, motivated, empowered teams that scale with the company. Our development team is made up of specialists across various areas, including DevOps. 

At Bridgit, DevOps is responsible for building, managing, and maintaining most of our critical systems. This includes integration, testing, deployment release, and infrastructure management. The team’s goal is to increase the efficiency and dependability of software development. DevOps works in collaboration with the development teams through the entire software delivery lifecycle, from design, through development and production support. They are key players in continuous development, integration, delivery and monitoring processes.
