About Stellar Health:

Historically, US Healthcare has relied on a fee-for-service reimbursement system where providers are paid based on the quantity of patient visits and procedures, rather than the quality of health outcomes.

At Stellar Health, we help primary care providers put patient health first. Our platform - a mix of technology, people, and analytics - supports providers at the point of care, delivering real-time patient information, activating practice staff, and empowering providers and care teams with incentives that reward the work they are already doing to keep patients healthy. Using the Stellar App, our web-based, point-of-care tool; practices receive a simple checklist of recommended actions that support the best quality care. Providers and care teams are then paid monthly for each action they complete, and Payors save money in reduced healthcare costs along the way.

Stellar is a US-based Health-tech backed by Top VCs (General Atlantic, Point72, & Primary Venture Partners)​​ with an established product & proven operating model. We’ve shown that we make a real difference for physician practices and their patients.

About the position:

DevOps engineering can take on several meanings, so one question we’d ask is: “How do they actually define DevOps/DevSecOps responsibilities within their Engineering organization?”

For Stellar Health, our goal within the DevSecOps team is to create and manage capabilities that our Product and Engineering teams can leverage themselves. We pair those capabilities with guardrails, for both security and maintainability to help keep everyone accountable. These guardrails can be terraform modules, security scans, or just a code review.

While a continuously evolving target, we want to support our fellow Engineering teams to be able to deploy what they need, in a secure, consistent and maintainable way and make it as easy as it should be to do so.

Here is some information around the scope of services and technology we leverage to do help move us towards that goal:

Capabilities the DevSecOps team at Stellar Health drives:

  • Cloud infrastructure architecture and management
  • Capacity management
  • CI/CD pipeline management
  • Infrastructure monitoring & incident management
  • Security monitoring and testing

Technical/Platform Stack:

  • Cloud Infrastructure: AWS, Aptible
  • Monitoring/Observability: Sumo Logic, Datadog
  • Data/Database: Postgres, S3, Elasticsearch, Redis
  • VCS & CI/CD: Github, Github Actions, Terraform
  • Platform Code: Python, Django
  • Platform Infrastructure: Linux Containers

What you’ll do:

  • Design, drive and help establish accountability for deploying and managing cloud infrastructure
  • Partner with Engineering and Product teams to identify and troubleshoot where infrastructure or CI/CD pipelines need attention or are not being used efficiently
  • Write infrastructure as code modules and supporting CI/CD automation that standardizes and securely configures our infrastructure and monitoring
  • Contribute to documentation and our developer education that helps our team level-up when to use certain infrastructure and technology to solve their problems

As Senior DevOps Engineer 2 you should have:

  • 5-7 years of experience working with cloud infrastructure, CI/CD pipelines, and/or site reliability engineering
  • 2+ years of experience working with container orchestration tools (e.g. ECS, EKS) as well as the supporting deployment models and monitoring/observability of them
  • Deep experience with Terraform, Ansible, or other configuration management tools
  • Experienced in designing monitoring solutions around cloud infrastructure management
  • A passion for working with Engineering teams to help them to identify where and when problems can be solved with cloud infrastructure and pipeline automation

Who will love this job:

  • You enjoy coaching up and learning from Engineering partners to help both sides to strike the right balance between resilience/maintainability and roadmap objectives
  • You are motivated by identifying and prioritizing problems as much as solving them
  • You are analytical and thoughtful. You experiment and test potential approaches just enough before committing to the technical solution
  • You prioritize, and help hold others accountable, to spending that extra 10% on a project to deliver great documentation in addition to the functionality itself


The salary range for this role is $200,000 - $240,000 and will be eligible for an annual performance based bonus and equity grant.

Where a new hire falls within this range will be based on their individual skills and experience, and how these competencies compare across other employees in the same role. Stellar's bands are designed to allow for individual compensation growth within the role. As such, new hires typically start at the lower end of the range. Stellar rewards performance and outcomes - should you join the company, you will have the opportunity to grow your salary over time.

Stellar reserves the right to change our compensation bands at any time.
