Overview

We are looking for a Platform Engineer

to join our expanding product development team, and play an integral role in the development of our world-leading managed Kubernetes offering. You will build and develop the platform, using cutting-edge technologies including Kubernetes Operators and Cluster API.

Giant Swarm is a fast-growing open-source infrastructure management platform used by modern enterprises. Our vision is to empower developers around the world to ship great products.

YOUR JOB

  • You will be responsible for architecting and building distributed systems, as part of our managed Kubernetes offering.
  • You will use a wide variety of open source technologies and tools from across the open-source community, including Kubernetes, Prometheus, and Flatcar Linux.
  • You take part in oncall, as part of our ‘you build it, you run it’ philosophy. This includes improving operations, such as by adding metrics, or building dashboards.

REQUIREMENTS

  • You have experience with Go and at least one other programming language, and a strong architectural background.
  • You have worked extensively with Kubernetes.
  • You are an experienced Linux user.
  • You are used to deploying to production multiple times a day, and love to automate all the things.
  • You are comfortable building and working with distributed systems – you prefer to build your applications as multiple services instead of a single monolith.
  • We – and our customers – are currently distributed (mostly) around Europe. Your main timezone should be UTC +/- 2.
  • We are very active in the Cloud Native / Kubernetes space. If you are as well – or just love giving talks – that will be a perfect addition.
