    Overview & Responsibilities

    Rackspace is seeking talented senior developers to help build our Fanatical Azure business. Our product consists of tooling and automation that enables our customers to get the outcomes they want from their Microsoft Azure infrastructure, including high availability, security, performance and billing.

    We're a small team working to continuously grow this new business, so we're looking for experienced developers who ship early and often while maintaining healthy engineering discipline. Because we're distributed, we're remote-friendly -- we collaborate by using tools such as Slack and Zoom.
