DevOps Engineer

Come build a sustainable, digital infrastructure with us

Kivra is growing rapidly, and so does our IT environment. We are looking for a skilled DevOps Engineer with an enthusiastic mindset to join our Infrastructure and security team. This team is the heart of Kivra and is building and supporting a massive and scalable platform for all our services, serving millions of people. The platform provides distributed systems and our backend is built in Erlang to handle all our data with great reliability and security.

About Kivra 

We believe that digital post makes life easier for both the sender and the recipient, while at the same time contributing to a more sustainable world. Over 1 billion envelopes are sent every year, in Sweden alone. This means a carbon footprint, with an impact on the environment. We do believe that there’s a better and more sustainable way to do this. And that’s why we created Kivra.

What you'll do

You'll play a key role in Kivras infrastructure team, where you will work with automation of deployment pipelines, monitoring, configuration and server management, among other things. You will develop and drive implementation of new tools in order to make our infrastructure more efficient and to provide better experiences for internal and external users. And always with IT security top of mind! 

Our infrastructure is based on

  • Distributed systems, micro service architecture 
  • Automation and provisioning with Ansible and AWX
  • Colocation and Google Cloud Platform using CentOS
  • Web stack: Nginx, HAProxy, Google LB 
  • Monitoring and logging: Splunk, Sentry, Pagerduty, OpenDistro, TICK-stack, Riemann
  • Zookeeper, Kafka, Python, Java and Erlang backend applications
  • Self hosted hardware: HP, MikroTik, Supermicro
  • Database environment: Riak, PostgreSQL, Hadoop

The role requires broad knowledge and experience, but also gives you the opportunity to specialize within one or several fields. 

Who are you? 

You need to be well versed in Linux and have a firm grasp of networking (the technical kind). Working in a hybrid environment with on-prem and cloud based systems is second nature to you. We believe you have experience in IT security for large scale high availability systems. You strongly believe that everything can be improved, while at the same time having the business “knack” to be able to differentiate between needs and nice-to-haves. 

We believe that you thrive in a fast paced environment with autonomy as well as collaboration in focus. Most importantly, you’re a doer. We want you to be excited by your work. Just like we are. Furthermore, you love challenges. Just like we do. A logical and analytical mindset are two competencies that we highly value.

We have a very warm and friendly culture and we hope that fits you well.
