About CharterUP

We help promote environmentally friendly group transportation by connecting passengers and bus operators and creating an awesome online charter bus booking experience. We are taking on a large ($15B annually in the US and Canada) and antiquated industry, where bookings still mostly take place offline, with the goal of becoming the leading online charter bus platform in the world.

We are experiencing a period of hyper-growth as the charter bus industry has fully recovered from the impact of the pandemic. We are headquartered in Atlanta, GA, but operate a fully remote work environment.

About The Role

We are looking for a technically gifted and entrepreneurial Senior Infrastructure Engineer to own our cloud infrastructure and create a super high-performing, stable, and secure environment for all of our applications, using the latest technologies and best practices. 

This is an opportunity for an experienced individual to apply all of his/her current and future knowledge to make a huge impact on our business and our customers. We are building some awesome products and deeply understand the value of having a stellar infrastructure and talented people to create and continue to improve it. 

You will be working with our CTO and our top-notch team of developers, taking the lead on all things infrastructure and performance. Our customers rely on us to book complex charter bus trips, and our suppliers count on our software to help them smoothly run those trips. Think multi-day, multi-destination trips involving several buses at a time, and imagine the possibilities! We're making it all happen at CharterUP.

Our team employs Agile methodologies and is quick to adapt, using a wide range of languages and tools. Our latest products are finely crafted weblications that allow passengers to discover and book buses while empowering operators to manage their business smarter and reach more customers.

We believe in exceptional user experience and in showing up to code. Our industry provides plenty of challenges, and your contributions will be recognized and appreciated, while your skills will be sharpened.

Our stack includes AWS, Jenkins, Terraform, Kibana, ElasticSearch, MySQL, MongoDB
