The Role

The DevOps team at Conduktor is responsible for driving and championing DevOps principles at Conduktor. We strive to abide by core principles that focus on empowering other teams to be self-reliant, as well as encouraging change and stability and continuous improvement.
Specifically, we look after various areas of responsibility and work to leverage whatever tool is best suited for the job. We’re strongly opinionated about what we know but humble about what we don’t know.
We encourage open communication, engaging frequently with peers, and invite as much diversity as possible, in the hope we can all thrive.
As an SRE at Conduktor, you will focus on shaping our cloud infrastructure and make sure all the pieces fit together.

What you’ll be doing

    • Our core responsibilities are to build, maintain, and scale our infrastructure, and related systems.
    • This involves work across various disciplines, with a tight focus on our specific areas of responsibility, such as infrastructure, observability, and CI/CD to name a few.
    • You will be responsible for building and maintaining various tools, solutions and microservices associated with these areas, eg. configuring our GitOps stack for Kubernetes identifying and automating repetitive work to build close relationships with the developer teams, to best understand their services and requirements.
    • Take ownership where needed. We’ve no shortage of projects to tackle, you should feel empowered to take any of these in hand, and own them until completion, with the ability to determine what’s needed to get it over the line

What skills & experience do you need?

    • Of course, nobody is perfect, so we don’t expect in-depth experience across all of these, but certainly the more you know, the more successful you will be in this role
    • Relevant experience in a similar DevOps/SRE role, preferably with equivalent experience with cloud providers (AWS, GCP, Azure)
    • Relevant experience with IaC deployments, with a solid understanding of Terraform, Kubernetes and containers
    • Ability to communicate effectively, written and verbal, by engaging with your peers, and a penchant for keeping documentation up to date relevant experience with CI/CD pipelines, we mostly use Github Actions, but any experience with a comparable platform is transferable experience with observability services, such as Prometheus, Grafana, Datadog, Sentry, and any cloud provider-specific offerings
    • Experience with Kafka and its various extensions is advantageous
    • Experience with programming languages such as Python, Golang or Javascript. You don’t need to be able to write a full-stack app but can throw together tools such as CI/CD scripts, Slack bots, single-purpose Lambda functions, or Kubernetes operators.
    • Based in a European timezone

Compensation & Benefits

    • Highly competitive salary
    • Premium health insurance
    • Flexible working hours and full remote working
    • Your choice of devices and tools that make you work the best with a $5,000 budget for kit.
    • International team with a wealth of knowledge
