Cloud Native Database Engineer

Elastisys

About

Elastisys provides cloud native solutions and managed services that empower our customers to run their applications and services in a scalable, resilient way in public or on-prem clouds. We are active Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) members, Sweden’s first Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP) and open-source contributors.

Knowledge sharing is in our DNA: We help drive cloud native awareness and adoption through hosting meetups, talking at conferences and writing technical blog posts about the cloud native ecosystem. Internally, we share knowledge through weekly tech seminars and lessons learned sessions.

We are currently 30 full-time employees from 10 nations. Our 20 engineers cover the entire experience spectrum from “just out of the university” to senior engineers with PhD degrees in cloud computing. Our team in Umeå and Lund has doubled in size last year, and we are now looking to expand further.

What we do

We improve modern application development and operations processes using cloud native open source projects. We contribute to existing projects as well as build our own open source solutions, for example Compliant Kubernetes, a Kubernetes distribution that allows companies to be agile even in highly regulated environments, such as FinTech and MedTech.

We also work together with international customers on open source implementation projects that are diverse, niched and on the technical frontlines of cloud native computing. Every project is unique, but the value we offer our customers is always high. We regularly work across most of the cloud native ecosystem and with open source projects like;

  • Highly-available databases such as Postgres, MariaDB, MySQL, Redis, and Vitess.
  • Message Queues such as NATS, RabbitMQ and Kafka
  • Automation tools such as Kubernetes, Ansible, Helm and Terraform;
  • Security and compliance tools such as Falco, Harbor and OPA;
  • Observability tools such as Prometheus, Istio, Grafana, Elasticsearch and Kibana;
  • Pipelining tools such as GitLab and Jenkins;

We also work with cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, GCP, a wide range of European clouds and OpenStack and VMware.

We are marathon runners, vegans, devoted fathers and mothers, board and video game enthusiasts, coffee drinkers, black-belt wearers, dog walkers and quiet evening likers. No matter your gender identity or your background, if you tick at least 3 keywords above or want to add a new quality to your set of skills, then please get in touch with us.

Who we are looking for

We are primarily looking for someone who can drive and evolve our Managed Database offering, making sure it is stable, meets performance goals, complies with regulations, and is easy to operate. As an engineer you will work closely with the open source ecosystem, both in product development and customer projects. Being a lean and agile company that works closely with its customers, engineers also have the opportunity to get rapid product feedback through 2nd line sales and support.

MUST HAVEs:

    • Experience with databases such as PostgreSQL, MariaDB and MySQL
    • Excellent knowledge of database security, backup and recovery, performance tuning, and monitoring standards
    • Understanding of relational and dimensional data modeling
    • Experience or willingness to learn cloud native technologies
