Devops Engineer

Kraków

We are looking for an experienced Devops Engineer to strengthen the Payment Gateway team.

AWS

About the project & the team

Payment Gateway is the main money flow channel for Schibsted newspapers digital subscriptions, handling more than 1,000,000 payments monthly, providing Payment API for nearly all systems within the Schibsted ecosystem. Using microservice architecture, we integrate our clients with Payment Service Providers enabling them to charge users with credit cards, mobile phones, invoices.

Integration with Payment Service Provider APIs is not an easy task. Especially if you would like to handle a bunch of possible corner cases like connectivity errors, consistency problems, and different specific API flaws. You must always challenge your solution asking “What happens if…”.

We would like to refresh our platform’s infrastructure to reduce its complexity and improve maintainability. We expect you to prepare the roadmap and lead the improvement process.

Our team is a group of experienced engineers willing to make the Payment Service Provider integration as easy as possible, providing easy to consume API, support, and know-how for our clients.

What we can offer

  • Work in a distributed team — development based in Poland, Product Management in Stockholm and Oslo. Business travels possible.
  • Work on many different areas of the tech world, following microservices concepts, serverless, and Continuous Deployment style.
  • The time required to focus on quality – pair programming, mob programming, knowledge sharing sessions.
  • Having an impact on the project at all stages – business needs, brainstorming, design, implementation, testing, deployment.
  • After office hours, we may: take you to ramen, play tennis, play board games, go to jam sessions, and many others.

What we expect

  • Solid Amazon Web Services experience – Payment Gateway runs on AWS. AWS certification is nice to have.
  • Hands-on experience with service orchestration and management, deployment activities, configuration management, and all necessary automation.
  • Knowledge of DevOps tools. Our infrastructure scripts use Ansible, but we’re open to suggestions.
  • Strong knowledge in Linux, networking with TCP/IP, process isolation, virtualization, and containerization concepts and applying them when necessary.
  • Experience with Kubernetes is nice to have. Our tech strategy is to utilize the Kubernetes cluster hosted by other Schibsted teams.
  • Knowledge of some scripting languages. Groovy is nice to have, but Python also works for us.
  • Background in designing, building, monitoring, and operating large scale, modern distributed systems – our services are pretty complex.
  • Interest and ability to quickly learn new technologies – we must adjust to changing requirements and new challenges.
  • Ability to question product decisions and come with suggestions for improvement – we expect involvement in product development and engagement in technical discussions.
  • Excellent communication skills (also English) – we would like to learn much from you.
