Product Manager / Developer Operations Manager
KochaSoft is looking for a motivated Cloud DevOps Architect to help one of our most valued clients with a major virtual LMS product roll out as well as oversee and adopt cloud and cloud-native technologies.
An “MVP” of this product is built, and you will review our current infrastructure and application platform architecture and help them on the path of migration to cloud or application platform modernization. You will use modern cloud infrastructure design patterns and when appropriate introduce cloud-native development technologies and processes. A core requirement is to build and maintain relationships with these customers and our team members providing technical guidance to infrastructure architects, application developers, and operators. The position requires a balance between multiple disciplines and strong interpersonal skills.
This is a full-time position open to candidates in Toronto or Montreal. We are currently operating in a remote-first approach. We have team members in Sri Lanka, India, and Chile who will be playing key roles on this project, and unusual schedules may be necessary to get the job done.

We are an early stage team, and so by definition, our salary offer will probably be lower. Unlike other opportunities, you will have a significant chance to increase your options package in a way that you would not elsewhere.
If you are an entrepreneurial person who has always sort of wanted to start their own business, but you don’t want to build the infrastructure (operations, taxes, investments), join us. We thank all applicants in advance; however, only individuals selected for interviews will be contacted.
