19 Nov

We are a remote-first company: we have an office in Amsterdam, but our team is distributed across Europe (Amsterdam, Lisbon, London, The Hague, Skövde). Ideally, you’re in a time zone +/- 1 hour from CET.

About the role

We are looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer who is a creative, but pragmatic, problem-solver. You’ll spend most of your time working autonomously or within a small team, building and improving our cloud-based infrastructure. This work will involve the continued development of our infra-as-code cloud technology, maintaining our Kubernetes, Dask, and other computation clusters, supporting our AI-technology stack, and making sure out cloud infrastructure is scalable and up to date. You will also be helping us maintain our security standards and our SOC2 compliance (performing pen-testing, vulnerability scans, etc.) and make sure we meet security standards required by our customers. You will have responsibility for your own projects, and we’ll expect you to take initiative to help us improve overall.

Requirements
- You have at least 4 years of experience as a DevOps, or Infrastructure Engineer.
- You have advanced experience in container based technologies (Kubernetes, Docker) and Parallel execution engines (Dagster, Argo, Airflow, Dask)
- You have established and promoted security practices in teams
- You have experience and enjoy mentoring engineers.

Nice-to-haves
- You have worked with satellite data and/or imagery.
- You are familiar with data pipelines, event queues (e.g. through use of RabbitMQ, ZeroMQ, or Redis), and AI-ops processes (e.g. CICD for machine learning)
- Familiar with the Pangeo stack (Primarily Jupyter Hub, Dask, Xarray, Zarr, and HDF5 file formats)

About you

  • You are creative and curious.
  • You are pragmatic, you know when a simple solution is sufficient or when a new process or technology is required.
  • Your work is thorough and you pay attention to both the small details and the larger picture.
  • Teamwork is at your core, and you like to help others grow and succeed.

About our team

We’re a group of 34 people from all over the world (Netherlands, Portugal, Italy, US, France, Russia). We’re all united behind a big vision to help humanity and the planet. We all work remotely, and occasionally (optionally!) meet for in-person collaboration.

What you get
- Generous stock options and competitive salary.
- To be a part of truly mission-driven work that reduces wildfires, protects earth’s natural resources, and reverses climate change.
- Flexible working environment with a lot of autonomy. We build our work days around our lives, not the other way around.
- The chance to build something from scratch and put your mark on it. Creating a product that solves real climate-related problems — one that is fast and a joy to use — is the exciting opportunity.
- To be surrounded by an excellent, vibrant, smart team who have each other's back and believe in a culture of openness, tolerance, and respect.
