About Simplicity

We want to revolutionize the way how cities and municipalities interact with their citizens. We cover more than 140 cities at the moment, but we are growing rapidly (our potential users are all citizens around the globe). Join us in these early startup stages, become part of the core team as a DevOps Engineer, and help us build a world-class product!

About your role

  • You will design, build, automate and scale our mobile application's infrastructure with potentially millions of users in the near future
  • No legacy baggage! You will have the freedom to design and implement your solution almost completely from scratch
  • You will work closely with other Engineering teams to identify issues with the product, the sources of problems and help fix them
  • You will strengthen your relationship with non-functional aspects of the solution, like observability, resilience, testability, and security
  • You will be keeping the system architecture documentation alive
  • ...and of course, you will contribute to technical and architectural decision-making

Who we are looking for

  • You are experienced with architecting, implementing, and running infrastructure in Cloud (preferably AWS) - leveraging Infrastructure as Code (IaC)
  • You have a working knowledge of managing various databases: SQL, no-SQL, and caches (we use MySQL and Redis at the moment)
  • We run on Serverless Architecture (AWS Lambda) so your knowledge of Serverless, Docker containers, and Kubernetes will come in very handy
  • You are able to react calmly and strategically to unexpected downtime and are excited to solve challenging problems quickly
  • You get excited about complex computer science problems, have a love for clean code, and insist on automating repetitive tasks
  • You are persistent and comfortable to choose the right tool to get the job done
  • You are analytical, fond of the latest technological trends, and a quick learner

What challenges await you?

  • Implement and improve CI/CD pipelines for existing and new types of components
  • Build a management tool and dashboard for deployment orchestration across the various components
  • Secure API endpoints, based on the specific use case
  • Review the cost of existing infrastructure, propose rightsizing and alternative options with pricing models best suited for the particular scenario
  • Design automation for monitoring dashboard update when adding or changing the infrastructure or application components
  • Definition and management of infrastructure access roles for technical teams

Monthly salary: from 2,000€ - 6,000€ depending on your seniority + Employee stock ownership plan
