We are an élite team of young, passionate, talented and friendly data professionals. As our Site Reliability Engineer you will drive quality operations at scale, solving reliability and scalability issues with a software engineering perspective and collaborate with the Engineering, Security and Operations team.

On top of this, you must be delivery-oriented and with a strong technical background.

  • Monitor big data processing jobs and a dozen of microservices
  • Design and maintain scalable and repeatable cloud infrastructure, embracing IaaC
  • Collaborate with software developers and architects suggesting them the best infrastructure solution for their needs
  • Provide contribution in reducing and resolving production incidents

    • Experience with container orchestration technologies (AWS ECS/Kubernetes)
    • Experience with Networking principles
    • Experience with Apache Kafka and ELK ecosystems
    • Proficiency with IaaC language as CDK/Terraform
  • Deep understanding of at least one hyperscale provider (we currently use AWS)
  • Experience with CI/CD technologies
  • Proficiency in at least 2 programming/scripting languages (e.g. Python, Javascript, Bash)

We’re also looking for:

  • Excellent people skills, with a positive and collaborative approach
  • Results driven mentality

The perks we offer:

  • According to the latest covid regulations, we’re now able to attend our downtown Milan office again. We adopted a hybrid model, and provide 8 full weeks per year of full remote! In the others, you’re more than welcome to enjoy our ping pong table, lounge area and play Mario Kart.
  • Working in a hybrid model we manage to set up different kinds of events, aperitivo after work and interactive games via Zoom, just to name a few. Having a good time together is always a good plan and is super important for us!
  • We cover mobility expenses, offering yearly public transport subscriptions or a voucher for you to come around the office in an ecologic way
  • Providing a good life-work balance has always been our priority. We believe people are important and we are committed to create a positive and supportive workplace environment

At Cuebiq, we strive for Diversity & Inclusion within our teams as we believe different life experiences and perspectives can enrich ideas, foster innovation, and enhance the products we create. We don’t want people who simply ‘fit-in’, we want you to bring your true, complete self to contribute to our company. We’re looking forward to your application!
