Software Engineer - Infrastructure

  • Helsinki, Finland
Product Engineering

Job description

At UpCloud, you’ll be literally building the cloud.

Sometimes, cloud technologies can be offered as a patchwork of ready-made solutions. At UpCloud, however, you'll be working with something that we've built from scratch ourselves. You'll know exactly what you're dealing with and you'll have an impact on how to make it even better. We offer an environment where fresh ideas and technical discussions are encouraged, and flat hierarchy is valued.

Our existing infrastructure relies on open-source Linux tools and in-house automation built with Go & Perl with a heavy emphasis on moving towards a distributed microservices architecture.

In this position, you would be building and refining the very heart of our cloud platform. Your job will focus on working as part of the team developing our cloud infrastructure’s core components, while making sure the cloud keeps ticking you will also be working in refactoring our existing solutions. You will be working a lot with our single repository of core functionalities, and taking part in developing more distributed and modern architecture based on microservices and workflow automation. You might find yourself working with our distributed resource provisioning, developing our public API, or creating solutions towards virtual private cloud.

To be successful in this role you should have an understanding and experience of microservices and large-scale automation, provisioning, and building system-level solutions based on open source components running on Linux OS’s. And of course it doesn't hurt to have some exposure to the wide array of cloud technologies and public cloud providers.

Job requirements

You will need to have

  • Agile software development experience in Go and/or Perl

  • A can-do attitude, with proven problem-solving and solution-finding skills

  • Ability to automate your work and testing with scripting

  • A willingness to learn and test new technologies and solutions

  • Experience building or orchestrating Linux-based virtualization, networks and/or storages

We also appreciate

  • Hands-on experience with Linux server administration, preferably with bare metal or large-scale systems

  • Experience with Linux kernel networking (i.e. netfilter, nftables, eBPF, traffic control, network namespaces, etc.)

  • Experience with EVPN and VXLAN deployments and protocols

  • Experience working with BGP

  • Experience in applying CI/CD and other automation tooling

  • Experience working with distributed architecture and building microservices

  • Understanding of data centre hardware, software, and solutions, especially in virtualization, block storage, and software-defined networking

  • Understanding of what customers expect from their cloud infrastructure

  • Debugging skills

This role can be performed from our new office in the heart of Helsinki or remotely in Europe.

At UpCloud we'll provide you an easy-going environment that promotes work-life balance and self-development. You'll be encouraged to experiment, fail, learn, succeed amazingly, be brave to propose new things, agree and disagree. That’s how you like to work.

We review all applications and we do get back to all our candidates. That is a promise.
