  • Partner with the product engineering teams to improve services

  • Contribute to the platform development in Go with a focus on scalability and stability
  • Proactively test the flexibility and resilience of the system (and keep improving our monitoring & observability)
  • Establish communication and documentation best practices throughout the entire software development lifecycle (development, deployment, and incident management)
  • Provide operational support and engineering for multiple large distributed software applications
  • Gather and analyze system metrics to assist in improving performance and finding faults
  • Prior experience with Kubernetes, Docker, Vault and Terraform
  • Prior experience with Cloud computing (ideally with GCP)
  • Deep knowledge of modern monitoring and observability
  • Knowledge of operating Kafka in high availability environments


Nice to have:

  • Knowledge of our modern tech-stack (Go, Docker, K8S, Postgres, Redis, Kafka), SRE, service meshes, API gateways, and observability
  • Experience working in the fintech domain


Why Upvest?

  • We're working on solving a hard problem: fixing the European securities financial infrastructure
  • We live a remote-first culture (WFH with no limits, remote coffee events, remote company lunch, etc.)
  • We live a culture of empowerment, flat hierarchies, and radical transparency
  • We invest heavily in the development of our people (personal sessions with a dedicated mental coach, personal learning/conference budget, etc.)
  • We play as well: bi-weekly Beers, company off-sites, and much more :)
  • We're willing to build an international company with people from all over the world: we sponsor VISAs & complete relocation support


Our values:

  • Think Fearlessly, Act Fast: We embrace the accelerated pace and ambiguity of building a business on the frontier. We take risks and look forward.
  • Be Street Smart: We are always tuned in to what is going on. With ourselves, our team, our users and the market.
  • Step Up, Stand Together: Every individual is prepared to speak up for what they believe in and stand together as a team to deliver the result, even when the going gets tough.
  • Low Egos, High Expectations: Although we take our work seriously, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We have hunger and humility in equal measure.
