Job Description

Overall Function

As a Senior Cloud Infrastructure Engineer on our team, you’ll work with fellow engineers, partners and stakeholders to design, automate and manage the deployments in our Mission Operations, Processing Pipeline and Global Web Tier infrastructure. You will strive to understand user needs and engineering requirements, and utilize your expertise with Terraform, Linux and Cloud infrastructure, to design solutions that provide impact worldwide.

You will accomplish the above in deep collaboration with Lead Cloud Infrastructure engineer and our Platform Lead. Together, you will design and deploy these architectures, including environments for development and staging. Furthermore, you’ll be responsible for designing and implementing complex systems such as non-linear, (sometimes) human-in-the-loop CI/CD workflows, secrets management and systems for logging and observability. And no, you won’t just “throw tools and money at the problem”, you’ll be given the freedom and responsibility to engineer and implement robust, efficient solutions that truly meet the needs of our mission. Finally, you’ll also be a significant contributor in the overall design, maintenance and expansion of our developer infrastructure, which includes both staff and external partners.

The Sr. Cloud Infrastructure Engineer will report directly to the Sr. Engineering Director, Data Products for MethaneSAT, LLC, and will work closely with other MethaneSAT, LLC staff, key contractors, and EDF staff.

Key Responsibilities

  • Lead the design and development of key deployment procedures for MethaneSAT Data Platform infrastructure with Terraform and other tools as appropriate in our cloud environment.
  • Design robust, scalable cloud infrastructure, utilizing both cloud-native services and purpose-built components, gathering requirements from both our stakeholders and your fellow engineers.
  • Create tools and documentation to make development easier for the team, our stakeholders and external partner organizations.
  • Design, build, maintain and troubleshoot our development, staging and build environments.
  • Develop on-call procedures and playbooks and tools. Share on-call rotation with your fellow engineering team members.
  • Explore, prototype and recommend related initiatives such as metrics, logging and load testing.
  • Navigate differing needs and priorities effectively, leveraging experience and technical skills to build and execute against detailed roadmap and engineering plan-of-record.
  • Participate in advancing EDF DEI goals in which people from all backgrounds and experiences feel connected, included, and empowered to address the environmental and organizational challenges in alignment with EDF values.


  • Bachelor’s degree in a science or technical discipline preferred, or equivalent experience required plus 8 years professional experience.
  • Must be a US person (citizen, green card holder); MethaneSAT, LLC is unable to offer employer-based sponsorship for this role at this time.
  • 3 to 5 years professional engineering experience in a Cloud Infrastructure or SRE (site reliability engineering) capacity with demonstrated progressive responsibility and scope.
  • Professional experience writing Terraform code, using Git for source code management and the Linux command line for server administration required.
  • Professional, production experience deploying and managing cloud infrastructure required. Experience with managed Kubernetes (EKS, GKE, etc) strongly preferred.
  • Scripting in Bash and familiarity writing and modifying Python code is required.
  • Previous professional experience as a software engineer is strongly preferred.
  • Basic networking experience required (e.g., subnets, NAT, firewall rules) required. More advanced networking experience (e.g., site-to-site VPN w/BGP) preferred.
  • Ability to apply communication skills to convey ideas, results and lead others.
  • Ability to translate complex technical information to non-technical stakeholders.
  • Demonstrated ability to strategically and independently recommend and determine approaches to completing projects and managing processes where precedents are not available.
  • Ability to lead and collaborate with colleagues and partners of varied backgrounds and experience.
  • Strong ability to work independently on a multi-disciplinary team, using independent judgment required to plan, prioritize, and organize diversified workload.
  • Affinity for a fast-paced work environment.
