Gdańsk

We’re looking for DevOps to join KickBack team in our Gdańsk office!

Kubernetes
Linux
CI/CD

KickBack is an e-commerce platform, allowing users to save real money. We have two core products – voucher-code sites and cashback platform. In the last year, we have delivered a new version of our cashback platform to Sweden. This year we plan to expand it and migrate Norway users to it.

About the project

KickBack runs a total of sixteen different sites
– Seven voucher code sites in five different countries, in partnerships with large media brands
– Cashback sites in Norway and Sweden
– Special “Black Friday” and Shopping sites
– Miscellaneous internal tools and experimental products for our partners

The vast majority currently runs on Kubernetes on Google Cloud, but we are not strongly tied to this platform. The code is stored in Github and we use Jenkins to automatically deploy specific branches to Kubernetes. We keep a few physical servers (leased from Hetzner) for special purposes, both redundancy outside the cloud and because certain problems are easier to solve with ample amounts of RAM and bandwidth.

About you

  • You have experience with the following stack: Linux, Postgresql, Kubernetes, Google Cloud, Jenkins, Github, Docker, Nginx, HTTP, Websockets, JWT, Oauth 2, NodeJS, Postfix
  • You can assume the responsibility of maintaining the stack and ensure things are running smoothly
  • Improving the stack as you see fit
  • Keep an eye on logs and discuss findings with team lead
  • Participate in code reviews, in particular with an eye for security
  • Advise developers on architecture, e.g. where does it make sense to use cloud services such as PubSub
  • A keen interest in understanding the complete stack, from the filesystem, through the microservice to how the web browser treats the response
  • Experience in building microservices-based systems
  • Interest in the software that runs on the platform
  • First-hand knowledge with backup and disaster recovery

 

About the team:
We try to learn new things every day, improve our skills, and to spend our time where we are sure it delivers actual business value.
We have moved to an architecture with microservices and containerized applications, in order to be less tied to specific frameworks and languages and to be able to experiment more. We value tests and clear code over documentation.
We are more worried about shipping too late than too early.

Our recruitment process - now fully online!

Application

Fill out the form and send us your CV - don't forget to mention all the things you are proud of! Once your CV is qualified for the next step of recruitment, you can expect contact from our recruiter.

Recruiter phone call

We are curious to get to know you and thus will ask you a few questions about your experience, motivation and expectations, as well as tell you more about Schibsted and our projects.

Programming task (optional)

Time to show off your practical skills during a home assignment - we don't want to stress you with onsite programming. Every solution is then carefully reviewed by our technical recruiters.

Technical interview

Now let's meet face-to-face and talk about your knowledge and skills - we'll start from reviewing your task and then move forward to more complex topics. Don't forget asking questions too!

Team fit interview

Have a chance to meet the Product or Engineering Manager you will be working with. During this step we'll focus mostly on soft topics - your work style, approach to software development and other.

Offer

Usually we need some time to summarise the process and then - yay, the offer is on the table! You have just received the opportunity to join one of our teams and work together with us :)
