We’re looking for a well-rounded Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) to work closely with research & development teams and operate and improve our infrastructure.
At Nosto we believe in working together to reach a common vision. We're a team of talented & earnest professionals and we love a good challenge, but more importantly we also love to have fun while doing it.
Having offices in 8 different locations around the world means you'll be working in a multinational company together with colleagues from different countries and different backgrounds. We proudly foster a positive, diverse and supportive culture. One of the things we constantly get positive feedback from is a really good work & life balance at Nosto, be it for family matters or your personal interests.
What you would be working on
Our team is a hybrid data and infrastructure team that has knowledge about our data pipelines and storage and how to maintain and improve them. All of our environments are running in the cloud and our task is to make them scalable, available and secure. We are true believers in automation and build solutions that minimize manual configuration and operational burden.
As a company we value small, working pieces over a “work in progress”. Having the possibility to constantly push improvements to our service is really important for us and our team has even built our own deployment system that makes deployments fun again.
Due to the seasonality in ecommerce we have compelling technical challenges during the shopping season. Some of the global brands we're working with have flash sales with mind boggling traffic numbers that are not for a faint hearted. You will participate in ongoing work to ensure we can meet these expectations and will contribute to load testing the service to make sure we keep up with the lightning fast response times.
You will be working together with the team to design, build and maintain our core databases and data storages that allow Nosto to scale to support millions of concurrent visitors. With tens of terabytes of data and a rapidly growing customer base we need to be smart with the technologies we use and sometimes challenge the earlier routes we've taken.
What we expect
There's a lot of different technologies we use at Nosto and we're not expecting you to master all of them. Talent and the right attitude will definitely take you a long way. We also believe you would bring something new to the team with you. Here's some traits we're expecting you to have:
Proven experience (3+ years) as an SRE/DevOps Engineer or in similar developer role
Good understanding of Linux systems administration and networking
Experience and interest in writing fully automated services
Desire to learn new things and to improve existing solutions
Cooperation and knowledge sharing skills
Analytical mindset and desire to walk the extra mile to troubleshoot daunting challenges
What we appreciate

Exposure to infrastructure as a code tools like CloudFormation and Terraform
Being comfortable writing code with ruby, go or python
