DevOps Engineer at Tjek


DevOps Engineer

Full-Time in Copenhagen, DK - Remote OK

At ShopGun, we want to make your everyday better. More specifically, we're on a mission to help you, and all other people, get the products you actually need. We help about 1 million people every month and +500K people every week. We work with a core principle of putting people first in everything we do; we build products for people by people. Learn more about us.

Why this position?

Are you passionate about DevOps and wants to learn more and challenge not only yourself but also existing and future infrastructure decisions in an equally passionate company? If so, we're looking for you to become part of our team and bring your ideas to life. You’ll be joining our team of engineers, working closely with our other DevOps Engineer to maintain and improve upon our infrastructure, and together you will have the freedom to shape the foundation of our product.

You'll also be in close interaction with our other engineers to ensure they have the tools needed to easily deploy and manage their projects. These are written in many different languages such as Erlang, Go, Python, Node and PHP, so there's plenty to dig into.

If Amazon Web Services, Docker and Kubernetes are technologies that you find interesting, you'll have plenty of opportunities to explore. If you have fresh ideas, it's even better - we appreciate working towards efficient and modern infrastructure, and sharing and making your opinion heard is key to achieving this.

If you want to get an idea about how our current infrastructure is built, you can read up on it in the following articles:

At ShopGun, we value our experts. That's why we want you to not only give your best to improve the product but also yourself. We expect you to do your best to keep up to date on the technologies you use in your daily work and search out new avenues to take it to the next level.

It's important that you always have a focus on security and scalability, as we are in constant movement and need stable infrastructure to support this. Part of your job will also involve responding to incidents related to security and infrastructure to ensure low downtime - and learn from each incident in order to prevent similar problems in the future.

What we ask of you

We expect that you're:

  • Passionate about DevOps principles and supporting talented developers
  • Able to learn and develop using multiple programming languages
  • An excellent problem solver
  • Experienced working in Linux
  • Able to communicate clearly in English
  • Eager to learn

Though it's not required, we'd love that you're:

  • Able to help build Docker containers
  • Experienced with orchestration tools such as Kubernetes, OpenStack or similar
  • Knowledgeable about IT security
  • Familiar with AWS
  • Used to working with monitoring and logs
  • Experienced programming in Erlang

Why work at ShopGun?

  • We care about your health so you get to enjoy an all-organic lunch every day, pension, a good deal on private health care, a break room in the office (for e.g. meditation), a gym no more than a 100 meters away, green surroundings outside the office, & more
  • We're based in Copenhagen, an awesome city to live in and have a spacious office to be in
