Your opportunity

TransIP is searching for a new Linux Engineer to ensure that our infrastructure and software deployments keep running buttery smooth. Ever since we became part of our infrastructure has grown exponentially, as has our need for top-notch maintenance, security and innovation. That’s where you come in: Together with Unit CoreTech you are always searching for new solutions to help maintain Europe’s biggest hosting platforms, and bring our customers the features that they want, quickly and reliably.

What your day will look like

Your role will be made up of a big melting pot of activity. In addition to ensuring that our infrastructure and services are fast, secure and reliable, you will also contribute to big and exciting projects that we have planned for the coming year. Some examples of this are further automation and fireproofing our infrastructure to reduce toil and improve scalability, revamped monitoring and alerting tools, and a next-gen CMS migration. Outside of new developments we also expect you to be able to cover second-line escalation support for our Continuity and PagerDuty shifts, which means you should be available to work outside of normal office hours.
