  • Excellent written and verbal communication (We need to make sure you can speak so good)

  • You must be comfortable working within Linux (Sorry, you will not be able to use your Windows ME laptop anymore)

  • Familiarity with containerization technologies and Kubernetes

  • Familiarity with Container Linux (We are not talking Tupperware)

  • Understanding of Linux-based networking (Everything is about connections, right?)

  • Strong desire to learn and grow in a startup environment (You ready to join us yet?)
