Flattr • Malmö • Heltid
Detta jobb är inaktivt och går inte att söka längre.
We're looking for someone who is passionate about the web to help us prototype new ideas and update and maintain the Flattr service. This includes the website, our public API and various internal systems that keep it all running.
The Flattr ecosystem consists of 3 major components. A browser extension that analyses the way our users interact with the web, an API that receives flattrs from the extension and the flattr.com website that serves as the users UI. The website and API are written in modern PHP following SOLID principles and adhering to the PSR standard as best we can. For data storage we mostly use SQL and Redis. Most of the systems logic/work is offloaded to background workers using a queue system, which frees up our nginx servers to only pass data to and from clients. This makes it fairly easy to scale horizontally.
Our infrastructure is made up of self hosted linux servers that are monitored by zabbix and managed using ansible and custom shell script magic. As we are preparing to roll out to a much larger user base a lot of work is currently put in to improving the infrastructure and the tooling we use for the management and development of the ecosystem.
We have just gone live with a closed beta of the new Flattr system and later this year we plan to roll out the open beta on a larger scale including a new API and better statistics tools both for internal and customer use.
If you think you can help us with the above and the following points apply to you, we would love to hear from you!
Support the content you love, just by browsing the web.
We like to think the Swedish saying, "Många bäckar små blir en stor å" ("Many small streams form a large river"), outlines the philosophy of Flattr --- to receive a little from many, rather than a lot from few. You see, when the masses do great things, the fundamental system changes. Join us in our quest to keep the web open and free for years to come.
