Description

The Platform Team at Tessian

We're looking for a experienced Platform engineers (or Linux Systems Administrators interested in making the leap) to with us on our predominantly Cloud deployments. You should be experienced with (and excited by!) ideas like infrastructure as code and "cattle not pets", and be prepared to design, develop and support the various offerings of our system.

Because of the sensitive nature of our work flexibility is a must. We deploy to AWS today, but may want to extend to other cloud offerings in the future. Conventional system and network skills are key, but we are also using Docker to manage our application code, so this role gives a chance to build on, or learn fresh, modern software deployment techniques, and we variously use Linux based Docker containers and a Go based installer.

You'll be investigating and proposing microservices architectures and coming up with new ways to deploy and scale Tessian's platform. You’ll be growing your skill-set on an ongoing basis; regular and continuous development is something we believe in and as an employee we will seek to create opportunities for you to evolve.

Our agnostic approach to problem solving means we favour hiring engineers who pride themselves on the ability to learn new skills, their comfort with the unknown and their willingness to experiment. This role may involve, at times, client side visits. Some of the technologies we’re working with include Node.jsGoC#Python, PostgresMongoDBRabbitMQ, Spark, and our current cloud stack revolves around AWS, Docker (on ECS), Ansible and Terraform.Job profiles.

  • Has experience managing production applications in the cloud (AWS preferable);
  • Has created and worked with microservice infrastructures;
  • Ideally has some programming knowledge, preferably Python, Node.js, Javascript, or Go; and
