Our Client is looking for the best DevOps Engineers for their new remote team.

Values

Have you ever wanted to work in a values-first company, with open-source and community-trusted products, privacy and security being the core features of what you do? This is our offering:

  • We do everything open-source, publicly, and engage heavily with the community
  • We have a continuous improvement process where feedback is asked regularly and acted upon
  • We are a flat organization. Any opinion or approach can be challenged, even if it comes from the CEO, team lead, or any other person around
  • We invest in secure and private solutions – both for internal tooling and our product
  • We aim for transparency (public company structure, public info pages, we’re moving to a public chat place at the moment)

We believe that this provides the structure to scale our organization, innovate our technology and attract top talent as we strive to change the world towards a better future. These values apply to how we work and the philosophy of the solutions we create. People make the product!

Role

We are looking for a DevOps Engineer to join our new fully remote team with a focus on hosting, Infrastructure automation and CI/CD optimization. You will be the main person responsible for these tasks, inheriting some of our current GitLab pipelines. We have a world-class product, engineering, and data science team, passionate about our mission of helping consumers take back the control of their digital life, by creating simple yet powerful and private solutions.

Mindset:

  • See automation across all the things!
  • All-rounded, interested in the application layer, server layer, etc
  • Constantly analyze and validate the security aspects of the system
  • Communicate all findings with the team, work on improvement together
  • Eager to participate in industry’s best practices: receive and provide code reviews, write documentation, etc

Technical requirements

You don’t have to know all of the technologies, but knowing one of the alternatives in most of the groups is good already (presuming you’d be willing to gradually learn anything else you might need):

  • Take a leadership role in developing infrastructure to improve the speed of our organization
  • We’re using Docker, but any container runtime experience is welcomed
  • We’re using Docker-compose and aiming for Kubernetes, but any container orchestration technology counts
  • We’re on Gitlab CI, but any CI experience would be good (Jenkins / Travis / CircleCI / Github Actions)
  • Our staging is on DigitalOcean, but your cloud experience would be greatly valued (AWS / Azure / GCP / Heroku)
  • Experience with any billing/payment system is a plus (e.g. KillBill)
  • Understanding of security principles and hygiene
    • Or security groups and firewalls
    • Or access controls for services
    • Or HTTPS termination and transit encryption
    • Or container/instance/cluster hardening
    • Or securing data at rest
    • Or all of the above!
  • General best practices: version control with Git, automation, code reviews
  • Be available to apply coding when components do not work together out of the box yet (e.g. internal inter-connection components)
  • Be open to communicate with the rest of the team on the choices and processes. Research directions and approaches together in a team, listening and being aware of the other side in a technical problem
