Frontastic is looking for a cloud-native System Engineer (f/m/*) as either part-time or full-time position. We are a remote-first company currently operating in the Europe/Berlin timezone. Locations in or close to Germany are preferred to make our regular in-person meetings easier
As our system engineer you will have the opportunity to be a major influence on our cloud product deployment architecture and building the groundwork for an infrastructure powering many large dynamically scaled eCommerce Platforms in the near future. This is not a junior position, but if you are experienced and ship proven work on your own, this position is for you.
Shape the deployment of dynamically scaled platforms on Google Cloud
Improve our Ansible based provisioning infrastructure
Enhance our monitoring using ELK or similar approaches
Maintain our PaaS & SaaS infrastructure powering many different eCommerce Platforms built on top of Frontastic
Deep knowledge of Ansible and experience with Google Cloud platform and deploying & monitoring larger dynamically scaled infrastructure landscapes. Experiences with NodeJS, PHP (Symfony 4), CouchDB or MySQL are a bonus. Writing and speaking English is a natural part of your life. You are born in the cloud – that means, you don’t know the old server systems anymore, but for you there is only the operation in the Google Cloud.
You are motivated to work from your home office or a co-working space and able to structure your work day accordingly. That’s what makes you special:
You are highly motivated, committed to improving existing skills and like to learn new skills during working hours
You have a vision of how to better shape the development experience for all engineers.
You have a completed education and at least 3 to 5 years of professional experience as an system engineer or in a comparable field.
Deep knowledge of Ansible & Cloud Infrastructures
An understanding of the requirements of working in software development (quality assurance, testing, monitoring)
You are able and willing to prefer written communication to make well structured information readily available to everyone and follow established communication patterns
As our colleague you have the flexibility to choose your own working hours throughout the day to incorporate this job into your life-work balance. Our work week has 40 hours maximum and overtime is the exception. No vacation days are necessary to run errands, and there is certainly no need to wait until after work to take care of a family emergency.
Our development team strives to improve themselves following these guidelines:
A culture of owning your code from design & development to deployment and monitoring, which is sometimes called DevOps.
We offer a friendly learning environment and try hard not to blame anyone for not knowing something and actively encourage mentoring of your peers.
We use practices like pair programming, mob programming, test driven development when it makes sense and continuously refactor our code to constantly share knowledge and keep the amount of technical dept low.
We are a remote-first company with regular meetings in-person. We use tools like Email, Trello, Hangouts and Slack to stay in touch during our daily work.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. If we receive job applications from yet underrepresented groups those applications will be preferred.
