Cloud Engineer (with a passion for data services)

Utrecht /
Engineering /
/ Hybrid
At Trengo, we’re already living in the cloud, but we’d love to squeeze quite a lot more out of it. So we’re on a quest to move from IaaS and become 100% PaaS-first. This is not an easy quest. The cloud is updating quicker than ever at the same time, we have millions of requests per hour. AWS is helping us, PlanetScale is helping us, can you help us as well?

We shouldn’t forget about our Product teams. They make the move from local development to containerized development. And typically, they haven’t got all the experience here. Did we mention zero trust security already? Well, we like that!

At Trengo, we believe in a world where technology empowers the relationship between companies and their customers. That’s why our mission is to build the smartest customer engagement platform to replace repetitive work with meaningful conversations. How do we do that? Our software makes it easy for customer-facing teams to communicate with customers via multiple channels, all in one shared inbox. Email, Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, live-chat, you name it. With a Series A investment of $36M led by Insight Partners and Peak Capital and becoming one of the four official WhatsApp Business Solutions Providers in the Netherlands, we empower our customers to scale their businesses and optimize the channels their clients truly prefer.

What your day looks like
Let's break down this vision into a little taste of your work at Trengo:
• Alongside Alexey & Ryan, you will be working to set up infrastructure-as-code principles within Trengo.
• As a cloud engineer, you will get the opportunity to make a decision today about containers runtime and orchestration and already be executing it tomorrow. Cool, right?
• You will support product teams in further setting up CI/CD pipelines.
• You will empower us with your knowledge of cloud technologies.
• You will also advise us on how to structure our databases with your experience in moving/splitting data or setting up new databases.

What you are like
Now that you know a bit about us, can you tell us a bit about you? I hope you can identify yourself with some of these:
• You are a pro at CI/CD. You know how to use GitHub Actions.
• You are not hearing Infrastructure as Code for the first time. You can build up an entire company with 50 lines of Terraform.
• Ready to help our engineers to work together? Then, your knowledge about containers will come in more than handy.
• Your cloud knowledge is definitely not rusty. Have you got previous experience with AWS? Great, but we are also open to other cloud platforms.
• You have helped improve the development experience before? Awesome - trust me, our engineers don’t bite.
• You know a thing or two about adopting Kubernetes.
• You have done a project or two with AWS/Google Data Services. Working with data gives you energy.

What we offer
This is what we carefully prepared for you:
• Finding yourself in a fast-growing company where your career can evolve. With the help of your number one supporter, your manager, you will follow our departmental growth tracks to pursue the career you want. This is one of the reasons for our positive Glassdoor reviews (4.3/5).

28 vacation days to rest, have fun, and travel as you wish. But, every once in a while, we also like to do it together. The last time, we went on an amazing trip to Valencia!
• Weekly Yoga and Bootcamp classes in our office to blow some steam off after work with the guidance from a certified trainer!
• Fancy learning Dutch? We also offer Dutch courses for our international employees!
• When you work from our beautiful office: you can bet we have delicious warm lunches together prepared by our in-house chef and workplace experience team. Also, your traveling expenses to Utrecht will be reimbursed.
