Job description

Senior Platform Engineer - SRE Focus

Fully Remote, Berlin Office or Co-working Space budget provided; (GMT +/-3 hours)

Developer Tooling Space

Up to €100k depending on experience and location;

Want to work fully remote in an async organisation where you will be working on a product that makes your life easier? Look no further

Your next company:

You will join a growing, bootstrapped monitoring company that focuses on APIs & Web Applications. (What better than to work on a product that should make your own life easier huh?)

Their reusable tests make production monitoring a doddle, and their self-service SaaS is already used by 1000+ developers in just a year.

Your day to day

You will be joining a brand-new platform team of two, and focus on building and scaling backend services with reliability at the forefront of what you do. Working with the Backend Lead and Head of Engineering, you can be involved with the SRE Direction with scale in mind, coach developers on the best metrics, and ensure the business is the best reliability business out there. You will also be involved in tweaking code and software engineering;

The biggest up-and-coming project is a cloud monitoring cost optimisation project. They would like to move away from AWS Lambda for monitoring, and you get to choose what to.

Some core focuses

  • Writing and Scaling Backend Services in Node/JS
  • Observability of the backend platform: defining bottlenecks, tracking and fixing them
  • Migrate secrets from Heroku to AWS Secrets Manager
  • Optimize performance and reduce error rates: from wild queries, to slow queues to bugs.
  • Define SLO's and SLA's
  • Spot observability blindpsots
  • Curate platform insights

Stack: AWS Lambda/SQS/SNS/S3, Heroku, Postgres, Redis, ClickHouse, Prometheus, Grafana, Javascript, Node.js

Your profile?

  • Any software engineering background - (they work in node.js but great engineers can work with anything)
  • Worked with public cloud (AWS ideally but it doesn't matter too much)
  • Worked on incidents/troubleshooting
  • Seniority to own SRE direction and make decisions
  • In GMT +/-3

Whats in it for you?

  • Stock options
  • Work when best suits you - flexible hours and you can pick up your kids from school without worries
  • Modern laptop and equipment
  • 27 days paid vacation + local public holidays
  • Paid sick leave & parental leave
  • €1,000 learning & visiting budget
  • Fully remote or Co-working budget for those who want it
  • Bi-annual company retreats
