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
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

3 Applicants This Week
More Than 6 Months Old
This job posting is no longer available
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.
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.
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR

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.

After lunch, you jump onto an open issue and prepare a pull request that improves the infrastructure's reliability for one of the most delicate components. Before the end of the day, you put together some ideas on how to improve another component's design and organize an architecture review session with some engineers across teams to discuss the benefits and costs of your proposed solution.

Our Core Values 💛
We Care. We Perform. We Evolve.
Your Impact 💥
As we have reached the scaleup phase at HousingAnywhere, our rapid growth has brought on new challenges. We are rethinking the platform architecture to meet imminent growth needs. You will have the opportunities to bring in your ideas in the context of microservices, stream processing, API, security and data integrity.
At platform we are shaping the vision for the future architecture of HousingAnywhere. You will help other teams to build new features on top of our architecture, and make sure that concerns like reliability, security, privacy and performances are met.
We are pragmatic developers, and often we need to think out of the box to solve tricky technical challenges. Technology hypes inspire our work and give us ideas, but we realize that the context in which we build our solutions is what matters most. You will help us consider the challenges we face when adopting new technologies or techniques.
You will help your colleagues and your leaders to solve problems and move faster, as well as they will do with you.
Our mission as the platform team
As a Software Engineer for the Platform Team, you will be joining the team responsible for the backend logic of HousingAnywhere’s marketplace, and for standardizing the way our partners integrate with our platform.
Our team is here to provide HousingAnywhere with a scalable composable architecture that allows the organization to scale the business and teams on top of it.
We achieve our goals by:
developing the technical vision and standards on the platform that accommodate the needs of the housing rental market for the next 10 years
developing the standards for the exchange of information between systems in the accommodation rental market.
Let's work together on the following
We are currently refactoring the monolith in context boundaries using Domain Driven Design techniques. Our goal is to come to an architecture that will allow us to break the monolith in microservices and break dependencies with the database.
We are working on bootstrapping our journey to let partners integrate with our platform. We are defining and implementing the architecture that can integrate seamlessly the variegated technologies the industry uses.
We are rethinking our approach to CI, and simplifying our suites of tests.
We already extracted frontend as a service from the backend monolith, but the code still leaves in one repository. We want to gain independence by extracting backend code from frontend code and have separate deployment pipelines.
We are working closely with the operations team to move our services to kubernetes. We are currently sending a small percentage of traffic to the cluster and are facing some performance issues. We are investigating possible next moves to fully work on the cluster.
We are creating an internal RFC to plan how to move towards an event driven architecture by introducing Kafka. We are researching impacts, costs and value that we get by getting into such a path.
And our stack?
