We are looking for Site Reliability Engineers at all levels to work on our cloud operations platform, turning the best open-source technologies into frustration-free cloud services.
You will be part of a team working on the Aiven cloud platform, improving its scalability, reliability, observability and ensuring the systems are able to scale with our rapidly-growing, global customer base. This team champions our platform’s reliability: we apply our experience running the platform to make it more resilient, both for ourselves, and for our customers. On-call duties are involved, and we use a follow-the-sun model so that on-call duties are not overnight. Depending on your interests, you may also participate in new feature development and help extend our product portfolio of open-source data technologies.
We are looking for candidates that have skills in either software development with Python, or in Linux systems administration. Long-term success in this role does require both software engineering and Linux systems administration skills; we expect candidates to have the basics of both, and will help them develop their skills. Also critical to the role are a debugging mindset and analytical problem-solving skills we have the mandate to dive into our codebase and fix bugs in the normal course of events.
This role is aimed at candidates who are at a Senior level of experience. We actively grow our employees’ skills to help them reach the next level. Please don’t hesitate to apply even if you are unsure if your experience matches we will adjust accordingly.
Our philosophy is to automate everything and to avoid repetitive manual work. Our own backend systems are mostly implemented in Python. We offer and operate the following complex open-source database and data management systems on behalf of our customers: PostgreSQL, MySQL, Kafka, Flink, M3, OpenSearch, Cassandra, Redis, InfluxDB, and Grafana. The Aiven platform automates the bootstrapping and maintenance of these technologies across various cloud providers, including AWS, Azure, GCP, and several others. In true startup fashion, Aiven itself runs on the Aiven platform. Joining Aiven is a fantastic learning opportunity to grow your skills and gain experience with these exciting and in-demand technologies.
You will be part of a highly-skilled, tight-knit and diverse team, making your contribution essential to what is becoming a truly unique success story. If you’re interested, send us your application.
