Why Forter:

We believe DevOps is not a job title. It is a culture.

Each team at Forter owns and maintains the performance, availability, security, and privacy of their systems, databases, and applications. Teams perform backups, manage capacity, fix security vulnerabilities, and perform required upgrades (OS, libs, etc.). They also participate in on-call rotations to handle outages and incident response.

We believe that head-count is a vanity metric. More doesn't necessarily mean better and people matter! We prefer smaller teams of talented and cohesive teams over more working hands.

We believe in continuously increasing the IQ and EQ of our teams by building an organization that will draw such people to us. We care immensely about how the team works together, and we're not scared of hard conversations. The friction of opinions or business constraints is something we need to deal with when trying to make an impact. 

We don't have QA. We don't have architects ("CTO team"). We have neither a NOC, nor a SOC team. Our teams are part of the system that we build, so we optimize the processes and tools to fit them. Most of our teams have a generalist-mindset, but our vast system allows people to develop expertise in the areas about which they are most passionate. 

We are big believers that having Skin in the game aligns incentives to build things right. We also favor picking boring technology, respecting the complexity of our system and business.

At Forter, we believe unique people create unique ideas, and valuable experience comes in many forms. So, even if your background doesn't match everything we have listed in the job description, we still encourage you to apply and tell us why your skills and values will be an asset to us. By welcoming different perspectives, we grow together as humans and as a company.
