Systems Engineer

Remote, United States

Prokeep is seeking a 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 Us

Prokeep is a software company that has developed a messaging platform for the $17 trillion construction industry. 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.

Your Mission

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. You should have strong opinions about tools and architecture, but should also be able to explain those opinions persuasively, not abrasively. You should also take pride in writing performant, logically structured, and readable code, config, and documentation, but be pragmatic enough to realize that sometimes shipped code is better than perfect code. Some training will be provided.


  • 5+ years experience working as a cloud/systems engineer.
  • general system infrastructure maintenance and improvement
  • shell scripting
  • linux system administration
  • docker
  • AWS services: ECS, CloudFront, SQS, S3, ECS, ALB, IAMs
  • configuration management

  • app/systems security

  • devops and CI/CD (ideally, GitLab CI) a plus.
  • Experience working in a geographically distributed team.
  • Desire to collaborate with other developers and ability to communicate over various channels (email, phone, Slack, Google Hangouts, etc.)
  • Elixir/Erlang or strong desire to learn a plus.
  • Postgres/RDS capacity and performance improvements.
  • performance tests with jmeter
  • AWS/ECS-cli
  • Node experience a plus - our ECS orchestration code is written in Node.

Working Relationship & Compensation

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. Prokeep offers generous health, vision, and dental benefits, unlimited vacation, and equity in our fast growing company.
