Jr. Cloud Systems Engineer

Prokeep is seeking a junior systems/cloud engineer for a messaging platform that is experiencing rapid growth in the construction industry. This engineer will focus on improving our existing infrastructure and application performance along with handling general devops/cloud engineering tasks.

This is an exciting opportunity for a candidate who wants to grow with an established startup company!

About Prokeep

Prokeep is a software company that has developed a messaging platform for the $100+ billion wholesale distribution market (i.e. plumbing, electrical, HVAC, etc). We are post product, post revenue and growing fast in the US and Canada. Our team is small, nimble, and devoted to making our customers lives easier with simple to use technology. We envision a world where distributors using our tools are more efficient and able to build stronger relationships with their customers.


We are looking for a dedicated systems engineer who is excited to make significant contributions to our integrated stack, data layer, and overall performance, security, and reliability. You will be primarily focused on systems and cloud engineering, but we are a small and highly collaborative team, so from time to time you may also take a diversion into other adjacent tech realms. You don’t have to be an expert with all the tools in our stack, but an interest in working on projects at all levels of the stack will be helpful as we expand the breadth of our platform. We are looking for someone that is going to apply grit and determination to learn these systems and how to operate a modern cloud-based architecture.

Training will be provided. You should have strong opinions about tools and architecture, but should also be able to explain those opinions persuasively, not abrasively.

Our hiring process

Prokeep conducts a short screening and those candidates that move beyond this phase of the hiring process are asked to put together a quick systems project.


  • Docker experience required

  • 2 years experience working as a cloud/systems engineer.

  • general system infrastructure maintenance and improvement

  • shell scripting

  • linux system administration

  • configuration management

  • Desire to collaborate with other developers and ability to communicate over various channels (email, phone, Slack, Google Hangouts, etc.)

Ideal Skills and Experience

  • AWS services: ECS, CloudFront, SQS, S3, ECS, ALB, IAMs, RDS, DocumentDB (any AWS exposure is a plus)

  • Experience working in a geographically distributed team

  • devops and CI/CD (ideally, GitLab CI) a plus.

  • Node experience a plus - our ECS orchestration code is written in Node.

Working Relationship

This is a full-time salaried position starting immediately. At this time we can only hire US based full-time employees and cannot consider consultants or contractors. This is a remote work opportunity, but you should be able to work core hours in U.S. pacific time.
