System Engineer in a DevOps team
Are you a rising star System engineer seeking the opportunity to juggle between software development, scalability, automation and system performance? This might just be the right place for you.
Are you a Linux geek obsessed with system performance?
See, we have this crazy, thrill-seeking goal to launch a rocket to the Moon and we want to build this rocket on top of success of our SaaS products. Sounds a bit crazy, I know.
You could be one of the guys that will take us to the top. We need a System engineer with strong desire to learn about High Scalability and Availability, to automate tasks via Ansible and to take Amazon Web Services management challenges head on. Did I mention you will be one of the guys in charge of building a brand new high-end premium hosting company? Sorry, that kind of just slipped my mind.
We try to innovate a lot and that can cause us to break a few things along the way. This is why we’re very well aware how much system administration and development relationship is critical in order for our servers and applications to run smoothly. We do not hunt for unicorns, but since our process is very specific and built within our company for a few years already, the candidate is required to have a broader area of expertise with different tools and services.
First of all, you will serve as a primary point of contact for the availability, scalability, and performance of our server infrastructure.
If you choose to grow and thrive in this role, you’ll work collaboratively with our software engineering to deploy and operate our systems. Build and maintain tools for deployment, monitoring and operations.
You will actively participate in activities such as architecture improvements, process improvements and tools evaluation.
You will also troubleshoot and resolve issues in our dev, test and production environments.
