About the Job
The role of the Junior Infrastructure Specialist is to design, build, and maintain efficient large-scale systems.
As an infrastructure specialist, you will ensure that Flinks’ services have uptime appropriate to users' needs, and a fast rate of improvement. You will be responsible for the availability, performance, monitoring, and incident response of Flinks’ API and infrastructure.
The trajectory of the company, explained by the combination of the quality of the team, coupled with an exceptional market timing, means that managing scalability will be the single most challenging portion of your job.
If you are action-oriented, very driven by results and you have good sense of priority, we need YOU in our team!
You have the ‘SRE mindset’: you recognize that you’re often in the best position to build the tooling that’ll help solve problems your team is facing, and you’re not afraid to get hands-on and do the coding - even if you’re much more of an infrastructure expert than a coding expert.
You’ve worked closely with agile teams and have an in-depth understanding of their methodologies.
