Infrastructure AWS Architect

We are a remote-first startup on a mission to change photography in its fundamentals by enabling anyone to take high-quality and professional product shots for marketing and e-commerce in 3D environments, faster, better, and cheaper than ever before. Recently, we landed a seven-figure investment from a European Tier 1 fund to take our vision global!

We are now looking for an Infrastructure AWS Architect to help bring the company to the next level. 

The kind of stuff you’ll do:
  • Have ownership over delivering rendering power to our users with AWS, including setup and maintenance
  • Work closely together with our rendering experts & both our technical founders
  • Monitor and improve performance over several regions
  • Improve our custom user/load balancer that assigns users to a for them dedicated rendering server during their session and orchestrates up and downscaling of servers
  • Optimize costs and instances

To rock this job, you’ll bring:
‍Must have:
  • Relevant experience over several years building and maintaining at least medium-sized projects, a large portion of that with AWS
  • Expert knowledge with ECS, EC2, Docker, or Kubernetes, as well as Terraform or CloudFormation
  • Decent knowledge in the JavaScript/Node ecosystem
  • Expert knowledge in AWS in general on a level of “Professional Solutions Architect”/“Professional DevOps Engineer” according to AWS certifications (the certification itself is not mandatory)
  • Availability during usual work times in our main timezone - Central Europe / CE(S)T
  • Fluency in English
  • A team-oriented personality and ability to work collaboratively with developers and various stakeholders
  • Capability & interest to learn fast
Nice to have:
  • AWS technical “Professional” certification.
  • Experience with GraphQL, Algolia.
  • Experience with 3D tools and rendering.
  • Interest in photography and/or visual arts.

How do we work?
  • We are a remote-first company and will stay so (yes, also after Covid) - our main time zone is Central Europe (UTC+1 / UTC+2).
  • We work in a virtual office - Gather.town that allows us to still keep micro-interactions while being completely remote.
  • We work with OKRs, which we plan in monthly cycles for teams to enable fast progress. The sprint planning for the development team is done in two-week cycles, issues are tracked with Github.
  • Every day we meet for the morning daily to sync on important updates.
  • We share with each other feedback regularly during the weekly sessions. Additionally, you will have monthly 1on1s with one of the founders.

What we offer:
  • Experience working in an early-stage startup where you work at a fast pace, but can have influence over the product and company’s growth.
  • Work in a very friendly and international remote team - currently, we have 11 people on board working in 6 different countries!
  • Two technical founders who care about the product and development experience.
  • Remote office set-up and we may get you co-working space near you if you prefer.
  • Competitive salary and an attractive equity package as an early employee. If the company is successful, you should be too! -> We offer a salary of 55-85k EUR yearly. The actual salary can be higher and will be a competitive package combining base salary and equity, and is negotiable depending on previous work experience and cost of living in your location.
  • Annually EUR 1.000 benefit budget to spend for your extra gear, setup, gym subscriptions, learning activities, books, etc.
  • Flexible working hours.
  • Unlimited paid time off.
  • Regular, fully-paid company-wide offsites, where the whole company comes together somewhere in Europe (depending on the Covid situation).
  • Oculus Quest 2 VR Glasses for social activities and/or development. Prepare for some good dose of competition in VR! ;)‍
