Cloud Infrastructure Engineer (m/f/d)

What is your role?

As a Cloud Infrastructure or DevOps Engineer – yes, we know, not an actual thing; still a somehow widely used term – you will work with other engineers to ensure our no-code platform is running smoothly in production and other relevant environments. You will be part of our remote-first, cross-functional Product Development team consisting of product managers, designers, testers and developers.

Our highly-available platform runs on AWS and uses several of their services, such as RDS, ELB, SES, EKS, ECR, S3 to name only a few. We practice infrastructure as code with the help of Terraform, Packer and some Ansible, sprinkled here and there. Other tools and products, such as, Docker, Kubernetes, Ubuntu and Amazon Linux are also in use throughout our infrastructure, which is characterized by an extremely high degree of automation.

We pride ourselves in being both enterprise-ready and cloud native. In doing so, we take advantage of the power and versatility that comes with the cloud native paradigm. But we are also customer-focused and provide our service in a way that works best for our customers.

As part of your role, we’d really like your help introducing multi-tenancy on an infrastructure level as well as multi-cloud deployments, running multiple instances of our platform on AWS and Azure.

What profile are we looking for?

You should have some experience maintaining cloud-based applications in production. Experience with any of the above mentioned tools is a plus, but not a requirement.

We love working with people who are eager to learn, so please do apply even if you haven’t worked with our choice of technologies and systems before. We are open to all kinds of experience levels.

We are also looking for people who want to grow with us. Whether you are looking to solidify your infrastructure engineering knowledge or are a seasoned expert looking to share your knowledge and mentor others, we would welcome your application.

Who are we?

We enable business experts to build and distribute powerful applications. Our software is intuitive and simple enough for non-IT-experts to understand within minutes, yet powerful enough and enterprise-ready for industries with complex reasoning and demanding use cases. We especially cater to experts in law, finance, tax and compliance by helping them automate and standardise decision making.

What does working at BRYTER look like?  

We are a remote-first Software-as-a-Service company, with people across Europe. At BRYTER, we believe in the power of self-organising teams and that everyone can be a leader. That’s why we strive for a way of working that reduces unnecessary burden and instead focuses on delivering value.

📅 Meetings 

There are only two regular, mandatory meetings:

  1. A short 30min company-wide update meeting that happens weekly. This provides a forum for each business area of BRYTER to update the company on their progress towards their quarterly objectives.
  2. Our weekly Product Sync/Planning, where we revisit what we’re currently working on and what we plan to do in the upcoming week(s).

Other than that, we do a company-wide virtual-coffee session every morning. Anyone who is interested and available can join this call. The only rule is, that we don’t talk about work. It is an opportunity to laugh at what our dogs do to our shoes, share our first (or third?) coffee with each other and just try to kick-off the day in a great mood.

We do daily, written check-ins in Slack to keep everyone in the loop on what we’re working on. 

👨‍👨‍👧‍👦 Quarterly Get-together

We are a remote-first company. At the same time, we value the face-to-face time. That’s why we get together at the same place at the beginning of each quarter. We spend the time strategizing, planning as well as just talking, having fun and getting to know each other better.

To date we have always done this in Frankfurt, Germany, where we have one of our offices. That’s why we sometimes call the time that we get together, on-sites.

🎹 Processes & Tools 

Our main tool for coordinating our day-to-day work is Gitlab. We not only use it as central git host, but also for our complete CI pipeline, to trigger and execute deployments with it and track our work items (and bugs 🐛) with Gitlab boards. 

Developers own the development of their improvements and features and guide them until they are in production. And while some parts of the application are worked on mostly by a smaller subset of the team, we practice shared code ownership.  

We practice a branch-based development workflow and do code reviews via merge requests (Gitlab-speak for pull requests). To enable quick feedback-cycles we aim for short-lived branches and provide automated means to deploy every branch to their own environment.  

We put a strong emphasis on automated testing and having a test coverage that follows the testing pyramid. And as with most things, we aim to get better at these practices, which means we’re not perfect. 😇

When it comes to tools, such as an IDE or editor, you are free to use whatever you prefer. We provide JetBrains licenses, in case you like to use their tools. And of course, you’re free to choose your computer hardware and operating system. 

👩‍🚀 Organisational Model 

At BRYTER we believe in the power of self-organizing teams and that everyone can be a leader. Everyone can participate in shaping the way we work at BRYTER, based on their interests and capabilities.

To that end we work hard to make the way we work explicit, to enable us to improve it continuously. Anybody on the team can propose changes and improvements in the form of a proposal, and proposals are by default accepted. Only if by getting feedback on a proposal a serious risk or harm for the organisation is identified, we ask the authors of a proposal to adapt it, usually with the help of the people who identified the risks.

Advantages of working at BRYTER

🗺 Location/Travel

Being a distributed team, you can work from wherever you want. The whole company gets together every quarter for a 2-day company get together. Depending on where you’re based and the location of the company on-site, you might get to travel for a few days each quarter.

👩🏻‍💻 Flexible working hours

We know life comes with responsibilities and the occasional, unexpected occurrences, and encourage everyone at BRYTER to spend time on people and the things they care about. That’s why working hours at BRYTER are usually as flexible as you need them to be. 

💪🏽 Professional and Personal Growth

We cover up to 5 days of training or conferences per year, including travel and entrance fee. Additionally, BRYTER covers all costs for books and online courses, based on a fair-use-policy. And all that without lengthy, complicated processes or approvals. We trust you!
