Level
Remote
$120,000 to $120,000 a year
October 2021
6 Applicants This Week

Job Description

Level is building a modern remote monitoring and management solution. We are a small, well-funded, team that recently launched our product. We are searching for a strong, multi-talented individual contributor who is comfortable with systems-level programming and networking who can contribute to our agent, written in Go.

Must-Haves

  • Deep knowledge of a systems language like C, Rust, or Go.
  • Not afraid to dig into an RFC. Low-level internals excites you, rather than scares you away.
  • Experience with system-level APIs in Windows (win32), macOS, and/or Linux.
  • Excellent written communicator.
  • Willing to learn and work with Go.

Nice-to-Haves

  • You are comfortable using GCC, and find yourself at home going through a C codebase.
  • Familiarity with RPC and common methods of IPC such as sockets and named pipes.
  • Video encoding experience. You have worked with VP8 and understand the spec.
  • Building cross-platform libraries, our Go agent compiles to Windows, Darwin, and Linux on a variety of architectures.

Things you might work on

  • Building a cross-platform patch management system to give users control over OS updates.
  • Working with VP8 to reduce the latency and bandwidth when streaming a device.
  • Creating a system tray GUI for the agent.
  • Expanding desktop streaming to work on Mac and Linux.
  • Adding a proxy to the agent to enable remote access to routers and switches.
  • Implementing Trickle ICE to improve WebRTC connection times.

Why you might want to work with us

  • We are a small, fully remote engineering team, and there are no layers of bureaucracy. You can have a huge impact here.
  • We are very flexible with working hours, we don’t expect you to work a consistent block of time, we trust you to get your work done.
  • We’ve recently launched and are starting to grow.
  • We will offer profit sharing so our small team will receive dividends on profits the company makes.

Why you might not want to work with us

  • We are an early-stage startup, and while we are well funded, we are careful with our runway and haven’t splurged on extra perks like gym memberships or 401k matching. You want to work with a large team. We do not intend to hire more until it is painful enough to warrant doing so.

More About Us

We are a startup headquartered in beautiful downtown Asheville, NC. We are a small, close-knit team working to upend the RMM market with our new product. We have recently launched and have acquired our first customers. Though we are a startup, our investors have given us a multi-year runway.

Currently, our agent team is made up of a single amazing developer. This hire will join them to expand the agent team. This developer should be an experienced self-starter that can make an impact on our product development. We aren’t interested in someone that just wants to work down a list of pre-defined tasks. Our ideal candidate loves working on products and will help shape the direction of ours. We’re going to be improving this product for years and want someone to come on this journey with us.

We really like the Basecamp philosophy and try to make sure that it doesn’t have to be crazy at work. We won’t ask that you work weekends, or late into the night. We don’t mind if you need to leave for an appointment in the middle of the day. We understand that software development doesn’t happen for 8 hours straight and don’t worry about counting time in the chair. We trust that given a fair timeline with a scope that you help us determine you will be able to deliver features. We are concerned with the end goal, not micromanaging you on the way there.

About the Application Process

Collaboration and communication are a critical aspect of how we work, a cover letter is a great way to provide a sample of how you communicate.

In your cover letter, please describe why you’re interested in working at Level, and what draws you to this role in particular. Specifics of your past experience that are relevant to this role are great to include, too.

Pay

We’re looking for someone great but we’re an early-stage startup. We are offering a rate of 120k plus profit sharing (once we have profits 😅). We hope to grow quickly and are committed to increasing the base pay of everyone on the team at each stage of growth.

€40,000 to €80,000 a year
September 2021
12 Applicants This Week

Job Description

Location: Lyon or remote Job type: Full-Time Salary: according to your level of expertise and experience

About Upfluence

Upfluence helps brands tell their story with powerful influencer & content marketing technology. Upfluence’s software allows brands and agencies to identify and contact millions of social influencers and bloggers at scale to execute comprehensive influencer marketing campaigns, as well as provide detailed reporting metrics. Since the launch of our SaaS software in January 2017, the company has yielded a monthly double-digit growth rate, and we are therefore seeking further expansion for our team and offices. Our rapidly growing global team is currently distributed between our offices in NYC, Los Angeles, Switzerland, and Lyon.

We are now looking for a talented and passionate Back-end Engineer who, together with the product team, will take part in creating and constantly improving the online platform.

What we do

  • Our platform aggregates, keeps up to date and serves the content of 5M of influencers across all trending social networks of the internet. This raises a certain amount of engineering challenges related to data, scalability and performance. At the scale we’re at, the naïve solution often isn’t enough.
  • Our backend stack is focused around Golang / Ruby as programming languages, PostgreSQL, Apache Cassandra as database systems, Elasticsearch as a search engine, RabbitMQ as message broker. Also, we use Apache Thrift for RPC and Prometheus for monitoring to name a few.
  • We’re firm believers of micro service architecture and domain driven design, making our codebase highly flexible and reusable. Some parts of our production have actually been running for more than 5 years!
  • We’re DevOps minded. Our backend engineers ship to production multiple times a day and are responsible for their production. We’re always working towards reducing the maintenance toil by automating as much as possible our processes using tools like Github actions or our own in-house frontend deployer.
  • We’re running around 50 applications in production, making it around 1600 containers live, across 90 servers. Not to mention that we’ve been running containers in production for more than 7 years. We’re currently in the works of moving our production workload to Kubernetes.
  • We’re product-centric: we’re not writing code for the sake of it, but to provide the best service to our customers.
  • We strongly believe that collective intelligence is the very root of success for an engineering organization. Each and everyone has a word to say regarding the technical implementation of a feature. That’s why we rely on tools like proposals and RFCs to encourage this culture, as the best companies in the field do.
  • We love open source and contribute to it by opening our own libraries to share them with as many people as possible.

Responsibilities

  • Writing highly reliable, maintainable and tested code that makes the correct assumptions based on the context. You know that in our field, everything is a matter of tradeoffs.
  • Getting involved in the feature lifecycle, from its inception, through its technical design and implementation, to its maintenance in production 3 months / years after releasing it ;-).
  • Work in collaboration with the team, get involved in mentoring juniors, reviewing PRs and writing RFCs. Being at ease with written communication is a must.
  • Work hand in hand with Customer Success and Support teams, to make sure our customers have the best experience using our product.

Who we are looking for

Job Description

Job description

Location: Remote or Amsterdam, NL(Visa sponsorship available)

Will you join us on a journey to disrupt the trillion-dollar travel industry? We are looking for the best and brightest who share our passion for travellers, data, and product.

FindHotel believes travel is the one thing that really opens minds to new ideas, cultures, and ways of thinking. Our mission is to get every traveller in the world the best accommodation deal. From adventure travel and backpacking to honeymoons and family vacations, we deeply care so that every traveller can make the best-informed accommodation choice at the absolute best conditions for every trip.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Back-End Engineer to help build the most scalable and flexible APIs in the industry. You will be joining FindHotel’s Marketplace Platform Tribe. You will be working with other squads across tribes and closely interact and actively collaborate with the Software Engineers, Data Analysts, Data Scientist, and PO in the team.

We are working with a modern stack consisting of Go, Redis, AWS (ElastiCache, ECS, S3, Batch), Snowflake, and more. We process thousands of requests per second and integrate with many suppliers and other partners. The products developed by the Offers team are a core part of FindHotel’s platform allowing us to offer the best possible comparison and offers to every traveller, worldwide. Hence, anything that you will develop and ship on production will have an immediate effect on our users and on our business performance. We work in a flexible, results-oriented and customer-centric team structure, focussed on shipping value in a collaborative fashion, with hopefully just the right amount of bureaucracy.

What you will actually be doing / responsibilities

Work in a team to solve challenging problems, and design and develop products that will help to bring to our travellers the best deals available in the market. Identify bottlenecks and opportunities for improvements in terms of performance, reliability, and code quality. Integrate and improve (new) provider integrations. Help to maintain and improve our infrastructure and scale it to support our continuous growth in a cost-effective way.

What a day in the office might look like

In the morning, you and your fellow engineers have a refinement session with the PO to discuss the upcoming features on the roadmap. You carefully consider the impact of the new feature on the entire product and raise questions and make suggestions of what is the most pragmatic approach to balance the technical excellence with the time to market. You are part of a discussion that builds on top of each other suggestions, ideas and comments. Today you have chosen to come to the office and after lunch you play table tennis or pool or go for a walk with colleagues in the city centre. In the afternoon, you enter a deep work period and finish working on improving a core component in the rates and availability API. Once down with that work you jump on a zoom call with the rest of the team to discuss the challenges and next steps with the PoC the team is building in this sprint. Throughout the day you monitor the product operations using DataDog.

Who we are looking for / requirements

  • You hold a BSc or MSc in Computer Science or related field
  • You have a proven track record of designing, developing and shipping highly scalable software
  • You have a proven track record working in a fast-paced agile environment
  • You have strong experience with at least two programming languages such as GoLang, C#, Java
  • Experience with GoLang is a plus
  • You have experience with caching and setting up data pipelines.
  • Experience working with data analysts and data scientist on analyzing data and identifying improvements is a plus
  • You have experience with distributed systems
  • You have experience with AWS, Terraform, and CI/CD tools.
  • You have a sense of pragmatism, constantly finding the right balance between achieving technical excellence and delivering value to the end-users.
  • You are flexible, curious, and independent, with a strong sense of ownership
  • You treat documentation as a first-class citizen.
  • You have excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • You have a can-do and can-learn attitude

Why join now?

  • This year we will be helping +2M customers around the world find better hotel deals, using data, transparency & industry-leading features
  • We are in fast growth mode and have been growing bookings by +100% YOY for the past 2 years and still growing in 2020 despite the pandemic
  • Completing our mission means building an efficient tool users love. Doing that in a market as large and as competitive as online accommodation is a rare opportunity to make an impact in the online world.

Is FindHotel is the right place for you? Find out by reading our CEO’s blog post

What we offer:

  • Plenty of chances to learn and grow – you’ll be surrounded by some of the brightest minds in the city, be part of a culture which values sharing knowledge every day and has a budget to attend conferences and develop yourself.
  • A profitable company with fast growth and a great scale opportunity.
  • A competitive compensation package + perks and benefits (including Stock Appreciation Rights).
  • Flexible time off (take as many holidays as you need) and a chance to work remotely - we measure results, not time spent in the office.
  • You will be part of a highly international team in a fun work environment.
  • We value good food and offer catered lunches from various cuisines, great coffee, ice-cream in the fridge and the occasional bbq in our garden

Job Description

Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands (relocation & visa) or remote (European time zones).

WHO WE ARE

After the 2008 financial crash, the international financial and business environment is more regulated than ever. The amount of required paperwork has increased exponentially. The deals are being blocked, the accounts are being frozen, the business is often getting paralyzed.

Project Plato was born in 2015 as an autonomous R&D unit working for Dolfin, an established British investment company, with the aim of automating sensitive business operations. We are a young and ambitious team frustrated by inefficiency of existing solutions.

5 years later, with the help of our software solutions, Dolfin was able to have

  • $4.1bn in client assets under management
  • $650m monthly brokerage flow
  • 10x increased speed of customer and employee onboarding
  • 30x more efficiency of its compliance officers

But this is only the beginning. Our mission is to help companies and business professionals around the world communicate with each other and do business with trust and simplified paperwork.

OUR TECH STACK

As a serious, business-oriented company, we develop our solutions exclusively in COBOL.

Just kidding! We use modern and diverse IT infrastructure. Our solutions are web-based, with backends in Golang andPython and frontends in Typescript and React. Data storages include PostgreSQL, DynamoDB and Amazon S3. The infrastructure consists of multiple backend services managed via Kubernetes/Helm, integrated with various AWS and third-party services. We also use Google Bazel, a secure and robust build system.

We strive to make our development process predictable, change-proof and well-organized to achieve the fastest possible product delivery pace without compromising reliability.

OUR TEAM

We are still small: Project Plato is less than 15 people in total but we are planning to grow to 20 soon. As part of the Project Plato back-end team, you will be working closely with Oleg and another 3 senior engineers. Oleg is our lead backend engineer who has been part of the team since 2015 when we established our office in Amsterdam. We are a group that values trust, growth, agility, mutual respect, taking ownership, and learning from each other through a culture of open feedback.

Job requirements

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR

  • You have a math or computer science background. No diplomas needed, but knowing your graphs and big-Os is a must.
  • You know your way around web services. Parlez-vous HTTP? Veux-tu un cookie?
  • You know well at least TWO of: Golang, Python, C++, Java/C#, Typescript.
  • You are familiar with modern build systems (especially code generation), Unix-based operating systems, Docker/Kubernetes and cloud services.
  • You are a self-learner. You can analyze the code and documentation yourself, and you can ask questions when needed. Our team is small and focused, and we do not have spare time for thorough tutoring :(
  • You are passionate about quality and reliability. This is not a social media app startup, we deal with big money and strict regulations.
  • You are able to take honest and direct feedback and openly discuss the problems.
  • You are not afraid of complex problem domains.
  • Knowledge of frontend technologies is a plus.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO

  • Build and improve web applications for our customers using our frameworks and libraries
  • Ensure the application architecture allows easy maintenance and support
  • Tune the application performance by optimizing queries, storage and algorithms
  • Integrate the applications with 3rd party services (AWS-based and others)
  • Work with our customers to define business rules using our domain-specific languages
  • Maintain and improve our build and automation infrastructure

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU

  • Modern technological stack
  • Challenging projects with enough possibilities for personal development
  • Freedom to do what you do best
  • Flexible work schedule
  • Working in a team of the most senior developers with high standards and looking out for the most efficient solutions
  • Personal development budget, chance to attend courses and conferences abroad
  • Top-notch work equipment
  • 25 days of holidays
  • Above market rate salary
  • Culture of learning, agility, innovation and open feedback
  • Optional relocation to Amsterdam + Visa sponsorship if needed

You are part of a discussion that builds on top of each other suggestions, ideas and comments. Today you have chosen to come to the office and after lunch you play table tennis or pool or go for a walk with colleagues in the city centre. In the afternoon, you enter a deep work period and finish working on improving one of the provider’s mapping models. Once down with that work you jump on a zoom call with the rest of the team to discuss the challenges and next steps with the PoC the team is building in this sprint. Throughout the day you monitor the product operations using DataDog.

  • You have experience with distributed systems
  • You have experience with any of AWS, GitLab, CodeFresh, Terraform, Jenkins and Travis
  • You have a sense of pragmatism, constantly finding the right balance between achieving technical excellence and delivering value to the end users.

  • A profitable company with fast growth and a great scale opportunity.

Castor EDC Logo
Site Reliability Engineer
Castor EDC
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
€60,000 to €80,000 a year
February 2020
2 Applicants This Week
This job posting is no longer available

Job Description

Our true purpose at Castor

Castor is one of the leading platforms for data collection in medical research. We believe standardizing and reusing datasets is key to overcoming the healthcare challenges of the future.

How we operate

Our main Electronic Data Capture (EDC) application runs on a proven stack consisting of Ubuntu, Nginx, PHP and MySQL. For our cloud installations, we orchestrate these setups by using Terraform combined with Ansible for the server configuration management.

Due to the nature of processing medical data, we have clients in different regions across the globe, often with specific regulatory constraints around where and how their research data is stored. To meet these customer demands we combine both traditional as well as cloud-based hosting solutions.

Most of our clients prefer to run in Azure, but we’re using Google Cloud Platform for things like Kubernetes hosting of greenfield projects, blob storage for scalable file upload storage and their Key Management System (KMS) to further secure our data.

For our metrics we’ve begun standardizing on Prometheus and we’re moving towards Loki for log aggregation. We use PagerDuty for alerting, communicate via Slack and host our code on Github.

Why we’re growing our team

With our recent expansion have come new challenges, both in how we organize ourselves and in how we manage and scale our infrastructure in the future.

To further these efforts we have formed a Platform team consisting of SRE and Software Engineering, which we are now looking to grow with the addition of an additional SRE.

Additionally, due to the sensitive nature of medical data, Castor is certified for both ISO/IEC 9001 (quality) and 27001 (Information security). In addition, we have to adhere to a number of other regulations, including Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines.

Our goal is to unite these requirements with emerging SRE practices around infrastructure as code and other principles to create a well designed and documented system, while still allowing us to remain flexible to change.

How you will contribute

Our absolute commitment to patient data security and privacy informs our vendor selection with certified datacenter and cloud providers. To achieve real impact in medical research, Castor needs to operate security around the world.

Historically, our production platform has run on top of managed hosting services. This model doesn’t scale well for our global, international footprint, which is why we are currently expanding our in-house knowledge and transitioning to Infrastructure-as-a-Service providers.

As a Site Reliability Engineer, you’ll have the ability to shape our operations and continuously deliver a working product. Working very closely with the development teams, you’ll collaborate in supporting and structuring our efforts around automation, observability and security. With your help we plan to scale the Castor platform to the next level.

Some things we worked on recently

Whilst there are many operational challenges as we continue to grow and scale at Castor, our Platform team has made great improvements to a variety of our systems already. To give you some examples of what we achieved last month:

  • Migrated our DNS to AWS Route53
  • Set up automatic documentation pipelines using MkDocs
  • Moved our CI/CD pipelines from Jenkins to CircleCI
  • Built a key-service on AWS Lambda to store disk encryption keys off-site for an otherwise region-local setup

Your background

You have helped run web-facing services under production workloads and have experienced the challenges that come with maintaining and scaling these systems. Making and owning decisions about systems architecture together with your team is something you enjoy and feel comfortable with.

Qualities we’re looking for include:

  • A good grasp on how *NIX systems operate
  • The ability to evaluate and implement best practices for IT operations
  • A working knowledge of both cloud-native and traditional systems architecture and the trade-offs between them
  • Experience with a configuration management framework such as Ansible, Chef, Puppet or SaltStack
  • The ability and desire to work with a wide range of open source technologies
  • A strong privacy- and security mindset
  • Experience with some aspects of Observability and distributed systems: from monitoring, logging and metrics instrumentation to resiliency to failure
  • A good understanding of how relational databases operate
  • Experience with at least one programming or scripting language, preferably Python or Go(lang)
  • Knowledge that a list of skills and requirements doesn’t mean you have to tick every single box to apply ;)

How we say thank you

At Castor we truly live our core values, believing we can achieve anything with a healthy and happy team. With this in mind, we offer the following benefits:

  • Our own ‘Castor Burrow’ - brand new offices by Amsterdam Amstelstation
  • A competitive salary plus an annual company bonus plan
  • Employee Stock Option Programme incentive
  • 30 days annual leave plus 6 public holidays
  • An individual training and professional development budget
  • Flexible working with the opportunity to work from home 1 day per week
  • Meditation room with daily yoga, mindfulness and company subscription to Calm
  • Lunch and healthy snacks in the office every day
  • A new Mac or Dell laptop

Backend developer (Golang)
Careibu

Job Description

Please note: if you’re a recruiter or a development company, don’t waste your time contacting us. We are not interested for sure.

At Careibu we are aiming to build the best social care community by students in the world. We are looking for capable, creative developers who want to help us accomplish that goal.

About Careibu Careibu is all about social care. Through our platform, we connect students to people for help at home. Our students work as babysitters, home cleaners and elderly assistants. Careibu’s Dutch community consists of 32.000+ students and 13.000+ clients. In Juni 2018, we officially launched in the German market (Berlin). Our mission is to bring all generations in society together and provide students a social side job.

Careibu was founded in student accommodation by two sisters, Lotte and Anne. They have grown the business from their student rooms to a team of 13 people which continues to rapidly grow. Our head office is located in Amsterdam.

Things we are working on We’re still a small company with an even smaller development team (CTO, product owner, backend developer and 2 mobile developers). This means you will need to wear many hats in the beginning but it also means there are many interesting challenges ahead that you can specialise in if you like. Broadly we are: – Migrating from legacy platform which has some interesting challenges – Improving and expanding our iOS & Android applications

Our technology stack We still maintain a stack built in Angular 1 (web UI), PHP (backend) and MySQL (data), however we are incrementally migrating to a new technology stack based on a Golang backend with native mobile apps (Swift for iOS and Java for Android).

Since we develop, test, deploy and operate our systems, we do work with other technologies that automate such processes, like GitLab, GitLab-CI, Docker and AWS’s ECS & RDS.

You should apply if – You want to be involved in building a product that has a social impact – You’ve worked in GoLang or you are a senior backend dev willing and able to learn quickly – You don’t mind exploring our legacy PHP system & rebuilding functionality on our new platform – You like to also be involved in improving the devops aspects of our stack – Experience with any of AWS EC2 & ECS, Docker or JavaScript/NodeJS is a big plus – You have a proactive attitude and are not afraid of failing – You (want to) live in the Netherlands (remote is not possible) – You have a EU passport (we don’t provide visa’s)

You want to apply or you have any questions? Email Anne (anne[at]careibu.com).
