The Engineering Operations (EngOps) team is a foundational team in OpenGov’s R&D organization. (See R&D at OpenGov.) With a broad charter that spans operating OpenGov’s cloud infrastructure, DevOps, SRE, Security, and Quality/Release/Support workflows, among others, it serves as a foundation on which all other OpenGov products are built, tested, released, deployed, and operated in a uniform and consistent manner.
EngOps is a group of talented engineers passionate about building highly scalable and secure solutions on the public cloud using open source and other industry-standard software components (see EngOps Tech Stack), in a setting that is fast-paced and agile. Our customers are internal to the organization. We make architectural decisions in close collaboration with them and then iterate quickly to provide high-quality platforms and solutions. A high degree of freedom and responsibility is second nature to us.
