We’re looking for an Auckland-based junior/intermediate systems engineer to join our operations team, improving our platform and infrastructure.

We’re a small, fast-moving, tight-knit team with an ambitious product roadmap. Our ideal candidate will tackle projects with flexibility and focus, while incorporating the views of others and exercising appropriate judgement. You’ll be working in our nimble operations team, responsible for all supporting infrastructure, and will work closely with our backend engineers and the rest of the team on the building blocks they need to develop and reliably run our software applications.

You'll be working on a variety of tasks and projects including performance improvements, cost optimisation, application rollouts, CI/CD, security, monitoring, infrastructure upgrades, capacity planning, debugging, and incident response.

You’ll have at least one year of commercial experience maintaining software applications and servers running Linux, and will be fluent in at least one programming language (eg: Python, Ruby, Go). You'll have some experience with Docker, and want to work more with Kubernetes. You'll have some experience with AWS or another cloud provider, and have used a configuration control or provisioning tool (eg: Ansible, Chef, Terraform, CloudFormation). You'll be comfortable with the operational aspects and fundamentals of database-driven web applications. This role may involve rostered on-call availability for incidents.

Koordinates runs a modern development process and distributed software stack built on top of a containerised platform primarily hosted on AWS. Our primary applications are Python/Django/PostgreSQL-based, and we use Kubernetes for orchestration. We ship code and platform changes daily and our CI systems ensure that our build and test processes happen on every push, and passing builds are a single click to deploy.

Koordinates vision is to introduce tech and collaboration approaches from software development into the slow-moving world of map authoring. Our team is friendly, frank, focussed, and distributed across three cities (Wellington, Auckland, Edinburgh).

If this role has twigged your interest, get in touch today to be involved.
