Infrastructure focused Software Engineer
Location: Helsinki, Commitment Full-time, Team Engineering
Join team Vulcan and boost the developer teams' productivity and happiness by improving our development environments and continuous deployment setup! We're building development environments and CI pipelines on Kubernetes, as it's not possible to run our tens of microservices and their databases on a single laptop.
We have 12 product development teams at Smartly.io working on providing value to our customers. They typically maintain one or more microservices that interact with each other. Teams continuously deploy their code to production. We run over 1000 dedicated servers in our private cloud.
We’ve just recently started team Vulcan (currently 6 people), so we’d like you to help to define which projects should be worked on. Technologies we use include Kubernetes, Ansible, Docker, Logstash, Jenkins, Grafana, and others. Here's more about us with a few highlights from our engineering blog:

Our Culture Handbook
What our development teams are working on
Projects you get to work with:Moving our continuous build infrastructure to cloud. We have 70+ developers building production services in our Helsinki office building. Using public clouds, we could give the product development teams more control over their builds while scaling more flexibly our infrastructure.Request tracing: make it easier for any Smartly developer, when debugging, to trace a request from its source down to every service it touched.Improving development environment automation: our developers can set up a full copy of the Smartly environment for development. As we’re growing the team, we’d like this to be a smoother and more reliable experience.Standardising continuous deployment workflow: our teams write Kubernetes manifests for services and typically use Jenkins to deploy master branch automatically to production. With over 30 services, this starts to become inefficient and error prone. In some cases, we might need more flexibility like ability to pause automatic deployment or require manual trigger for deployments that potentially change a lot of data.
What you'll do:Design, build and maintain the core tools used by our development teamsBuild a great development experience for our developersHelp product development teams debug issues in productionSolve problems for fellow developers at Smartly by understanding what slows down our developers and creates useless manual work, and come up with both short-term workarounds and long-term solutions
We're looking for:Ability to write high quality code in a programming language. At Smartly.io we use mainly TypeScript, Ruby. Experience working with containers.Familiarity with automated build pipeline, continuous integration, and continuous delivery tools. In Smartly.io we are currently migrating from Jenkins to GitHub actions.Ability to debug complex problems across the stack.Experience throughout the full software life-cycle in large scale projects.
