About Metaphysic:

Metaphysic is the industry leader in developing AI technologies and machine learning research to create photorealistic content at internet scale. We were recently named TIME100 Most Influential Companies for 2023 and are focused on the ethical development of AI to support the genius of human performance. We're run by experienced founders and backed by some of the top investors in the world. We’re only just getting started in defining the next generation of content creation. Join our fast growing team and help bring our groundbreaking vision to life.

The Role:

Join the Metaphysic team and become a crucial part of our infrastructure crew, shaping and supporting cutting-edge automation experiences, self-service solutions, and top-tier enterprise computing that lies at the heart of everything we do. We're on the lookout for a DevOps engineer extraordinaire – someone who's not just highly motivated but ready to deploy, own solutions, and collaborate closely with our Head of Infrastructure, project managers, and other creative minds.

Your Mission:

  • Dive deep into implementing new tools, optimizations, and automation that make Metaphysic stand out.
  • Be the bridge between stakeholders, connecting developers, management, and artists.
  • Ensure our systems are compliant and airtight against cybersecurity threats.
  • Get creative with ways to automate and elevate our development and release processes.
  • Test, examine, and analyze code written by others to keep our codebase top-notch.
  • Embrace transparency – document, peer at code, and collaborate with the team.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Proactively identify and solve technical problems, using your automation superpowers to develop software updates and fixes.
  • Work hand-in-hand with software developers and engineers to ensure development follows established internal processes.
  • Design architectures, create diagrams, and truly "own" the solutions you put in place.
  • Prove proposed solutions in test environments before they hit prime time.
  • Deploy updates and fixes, providing the technical support our teams need.
  • Build automation code that reduces errors and enhances the customer experience.
  • Seamlessly integrate with both internal (on-prem) and cloud systems.
  • Dive deep into root cause analysis of production errors and resolve technical issues.
  • Document procedures for system troubleshooting and maintenance, making life easier for our Level 1 technical resources.
  • Provide support as needed because teamwork makes the dream work.
  • Collaborate efficiently with SRE to ensure our delivery quality is world-class.


  • Previous experience as a DevOps/SRE engineer or a similar software engineering role.
  • Proficiency with Git, GitHub workflows (including Github actions, Gitlab CI/CD).
  • Ansible is your superhero tool, especially on-prem.
  • A solid grasp of CI/CD pipelining.
  • Working knowledge of databases, both SQL and NoSQL solutions.
  • Proven track record delivering Linux solutions (RH and Debian-based like Ubuntu).
  • Experience with Podman would be a bonus :)

Bonus Points for:

  • A Bachelor of Science degree (or equivalent) in computer science, engineering, or a relevant field.
  • Excellent English verbal and written communication skills.
  • A problem-solving attitude with a highly collaborative team spirit.
  • The ability to work 100% remotely with minimal supervision.
  • Exceptional organizational skills.
  • The unique ability to break down complex subjects into plain language.
  • An insatiable motivation, always ready to go above and beyond.
  • Willingness to present to developers and teams, do screencasts, and showcase your knowledge.

As part of our team, you’ll enjoy:

  • The hustle of a startup with the impact of a global business.
  • Tremendous opportunity to join one of the best and fastest growing AI companies in the world.
  • Working with an extraordinary team of smart, creative, fun and highly motivated people.
  • You will be joining a fantastic culture & a team, all highly supportive, collaborative, transparent and are all very passionate about our tech and mission.
  • Flexible working hours, including remote working - this role is solely remote :)
