Detta jobb är inaktivt och går inte att söka längre.

About the job

Are you a Software Engineer that loves skill-sharing and pair-programming? Great, then we would get along really good! We’re looking for a new colleague to join our TOC Engineering team. If this is your call – send us your application today! 

The Position

You will join an on-site team of four called TOC Engineering (as a part of our Technical Operations Center) and work in an agile and QA-conscious tech organization with high demands on reliability. Your main task will be building solutions that help reduce incident resolution time as well as proactively prevent them across the platform. This includes everything from automating monitoring and alarms on an infrastructural level, to teaching developers how to instrument and monitor their services. 

Besides software design and development, you will play a great part in the team’s architectural decisions and make sure that these align with the rest of the platform and infrastructure. Your technical decisions and corresponding implementation of solutions will help NENT to bridge the gap between cloud platform, operations and development. In other words, if you are all about service observability, reliability and high availability – we have an offer you cannot refuse! 

The challenge ahead 

The TOC Engineering team plays a key role in the organization, making everyday life easier for customer service, operations agents and developers by automating manual processes and designing necessary tooling. You will be a valued member of an autonomous team and work within an expanding organization that strives for excellence by taking responsibility and pitch in where needed. 

Some of your daily activities might be:   

  • Partner with engineering teams to help them instrument and monitor their services.  
  • Optimize and scale monitoring systems, alarms and dashboards.  
  • Discover new ways of gathering and using data from services and infrastructure in order to see issues and prevent them from happening.  
What we are looking for  

We believe you are currently working as a Cloud Developer, DevOps Engineer or Site Reliability Engineer with relevant experience. You are a problem solver at heart with an active interest in tech evangelism and quick to find solutions. You thrive in a team environment and collaborating on solutions. We also believe that you are a communicative individual that thrives in a context where knowledge-sharing is the key to success.   

Successful candidates also meet the following requirements:  

  • Experience working with logs and metric systems, preferably Prometheus, Grafana, Splunk or ELK.  
  • Solid understanding of cloud infrastructure, preferably AWS.  
  • Practical, proven knowledge of shell scripting and at least one higher-level language, preferable Python and Go.  
  • Expert level understanding Linux servers.  
  • Experience with source code and binary repositories, build tools and pipelines such as Git, Jenkins, CI/CD and Artifactory.  
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.  
  • Ability of sharing knowledge and experience to others.  

Bonus requirements that will make you stand out from the rest:  

  • Experience of SRE (Site Reliability Engineering).  
  • Knowledge in JavaScript (Node, Angular, Vue, React) and HTML/CSS.  
  • Knowledge about writing automated test suites.  
We offer you
  • Freedom to try out new things and independent decision-making by our autonomous teams.
  • We build everything in-house with cutting edge technologies.
  • We inspire others and share knowledge openly.
  • A place to grow and learn from our mistakes. We have a learning and development focused environment with an emphasis on knowledge sharing, training and regular internal technical talks.
  • An innovative environment with hack days two times a year.
  • An international and diverse environment with people from all over the world working here. We have 35+ different nationalities in the office coming from different backgrounds. 
  • An attractive offer with a beneficial occupational pension plan, insurance plan, health care, 30 days of paid vacation, flexible work hours and parental leave pay lift.

Our HQ is in Stockholm, but our market is the Nordics. You will become part of an amazing company with great people, content and culture. If this feels like your kind of challenge, please apply and attach your CV or LinkedIn profile. This is an ongoing recruitment and the position might be filled before the last apply date.
