DevOps, Automated. –

It doesn’t take long for software teams to hire DevOps engineers to alleviate time spent on deployments, CI pipelines, and environment provisioning. Not long after that, those DevOps engineer(s) become overwhelmed with requests – holding up releases and slowing down development. To add to this burden, DevOps engineers are increasingly expensive and hard to hire.

This inevitable journey leads engineering teams, large and small, to invest in automation and turn their DevOps engineers into a platform team – tasked with providing the organization with the tools needed to deploy and provision themselves without breaking things or compromising security. We are that team, and is that platform.

At Architect, we’re on a mission to unlock the power of cloud-native development through DevOps automation. Our innovative cloud platform and Architecture-as-Code framework make it easier than ever for developers to extend other microservices, secure their applications, and deploy to production and on-demand environments. Architect was founded less than two years ago, but the importance of automating DevOps quickly drew the attention of keen investors, like Comcast Ventures and NextGen Venture Partners, and equally strong advisors, like Marc Chenn of SaltStack. We’re poised for rapid growth in the coming year, and this is the perfect opportunity to join our team and build the future of DevOps!
