Who we’re looking to recruit

We’re looking for an enthusiastic DevOps Engineer who loves Linux and hates Windows!😉

If you are the type of Engineer that is motivated to work in a fast-growing startup set to do BIG things then this is the right position for you. We’re looking for someone who is just focused on supporting and monitoring systems, cloud infrastructure and building, releasing and testing systems.

We are a small, collaborative team who love what we do and want to find someone equally as passionate to join us and develop their career further. Working in a startup environment gives us more opportunities than in other companies to learn and improve our skills faster. So if this sounds amazing to you then apply now!

Here is a list of skills we would like you to have:

  • Linux Systems Admin experience, we use Ubuntu
  • Ability to write Bash scripts, the foundation of most of our infrastructure work
  • Knowledge of what SSH, Supervisor and Monit are
  • Extra kudos if you have experience with load balancing, Nginx, the Cloud, Ansible, Jenkins or Docker

What you will be doing

Honestly we are a 3 year old startup so everyday is different, challenging and exciting. If you join us, we imagine that most days you will be working on configuring the different components that Geoblink is built upon, doing all kinds of “DevOps” tasks, monitoring our systems to make sure everything is running as expected and of course, writing bash scripts to execute as scheduled jobs, researching new infrastructure technologies that can help us grow bigger and faster!

Other daily tasks could involve:

  • Providing 2nd and 3rd line support queries to internal members.
  • Taking ownership of user problems, performing technical diagnosis and fixing the issue either remotely or on-site.
  • Maintaining user security on all systems.

Perks of the job

We have something called the “zero-policy” which means there are no restrictions on vacation days, working from home days etc. We want all our employees to be “Mini-CEOs” who will be responsible enough to create their own work schedules that don’t disrupt their productivity. We trust our employees to use this policy responsibly.

  • Unlimited coffee, tea, coke to keep you going
  • Chillout space with ping-pong, table football, etc
  • Phantom Shares
  • Lots of space for you to work in peace so you can produce your best work
  • Opportunity to collaborate with some of the best people in the industry
  • Great career progression
  • Quarterly off sites to awesome destinations, language tandems
  • And much much more!
