About Shipyard

Shipyard accelerates the way software teams build and deliver products by automating the lifecycle of full-stack ephemeral environments for on every pull request. Rather than reviewing and testing features on shared, unreliable environments, software teams can collaborate centrally and securely in short-lived Shipyard environments with all the data and services their application uses in production enabling faster, more reliable releases.

  • Optimize code for performance, stability and security
  • Write tests to verify code correctness

You should have:

  • 2+ years of professional development experience
  • Solid proficiency with Python or other backend language
  • Experience with command line (e.g. bash, sh)
  • Excellent technical communication skills

Other things we’re looking for:

  • Experience with any of the following: Docker, Docker Compose, Kubernetes, Helm, Terraform, AWS, GCP, Azure, Digital Ocean
  • Experience with CI/CD pipelines
  • OSS contributor
  • SQL skills


  • Competitive salary ($90k - $130k)
