Crossover for Work

Crossover is the world’s #1 source of remote full-time jobs. Our clients offer top-tier pay for top-tier talent. We’re recruiting this role for our client, Trilogy. Have you got what it takes?

You’re a developer who has watched your peers’ earnings skyrocket by specializing in roles that combine finance with technology. While there are few openings for quantitative traders and even fewer that support work from anywhere, there’s a new field of FinOps that is exploding and is focused on shaving millions of dollars in spending from companies’ growing cloud-computing bills.

In this role, you will be designing solutions that create systematic ways to significantly cut cloud costs for Fortune 500 companies, while becoming an expert on cutting-edge AWS technologies and making important technical decisions every day.

Most of the companies doing this work operate by bill hacking and focusing solely on the billing and cloud watch metrics, but we do things differently. Cost matters, but the quality of our products comes first. You will leverage your technical expertise to identify deep cost optimization opportunities while considering the impact of these decisions on our products.

What You Will Be Doing

You’ll develop deep AWS expertise and focus on the financial cost of applications, making important technical decisions that significantly reduce TCO. Your cost optimization decisions will be assessed on:

  • Impact: We are only interested in decisions that reduce cost by at least 20%
  • Technical considerations: We aren’t interested in decisions that will harm our products
  • Risks: The decision must be feasible and consider implementation risks
