Junior Infra/DevOps Engineer

We're looking for a Junior Infrastructure Engineer to join our remote team and make a change in how people perceive dating, sexuality and relationships.

At Feeld we are on a mission to become the biggest and most effective app for threesomes and unconventional sexual experiences. We are building an inclusive, human-centred product welcoming people in relationships or not to meet like-minded others.

We are looking to expand our infrastructure team by opening up a position for a junior engineer.

If you're a developer looking to move to a more operational role, a graduate looking to pursue a career in DevOps and infrastructure engineering, or are just looking for a way into the world of infra and technical operations in general, this position might suit you.

Daily responsibilities will vary, but a general pattern of tasks might include proactive issue-hunting, improving our automation and monitoring, working with the development team to advise them on – and provide – the tools they need to run the latest and greatest features in development, as well as responding to issues, building fixes and workarounds, and applying creative thinking to solutions.

While you will need a technical background in order to hit the ground running, this is a junior role, and that means we are realistic about our responsibility to support you as you build your skillset. This is not a position for someone who wants to remain at a junior level forever, as you will be supported in your development and growth within the company.

About you

  • Previous technical experience and a technical mindset
  • Working knowledge of at least one common DevOps language: JavaScript (or a dialect), Ruby, Python, Go
  • General understanding or working knowledge of the concepts behind:
    • MongoDB
    • PostgreSQL
    • Google Cloud Platform
    • Virtualisation
    • Containerisation with Docker
    • Kubernetes
    • IPv4 networking, routing, load balancing, and firewalling
    • Configuration management
    • CI/CD processes
  • Ability to learn and work autonomously, with necessary support
  • Ability to make and justify suggestions and recommendations, and find solutions
  • Comfortable working in an environment where topics of sexuality and gender are commonly and openly discussed in a respectful manner

Bonus points

  • Work experience as DevOps, Infrastructure engineer or a similar software engineering role
  • Experience with remote working
  • Side-projects, automation, or tools you've built which you can show us (finished or not)
  • Experience with functional programming in CoffeeScript or Haskell
  • Experience with configuration management using Pulumi or Terraform
  • General understanding or working knowledge of the concepts behind IPv6 networking, routing, load balancing, firewalling, and 'Serverless' computing
  • Qualifications in computer science or industry certifications
