We’re building a different kind of IT company, one that meets our customers and our own team on their turf, on their terms. We’re growing fast right now and you can be part of it with all the opportunities to add value that come with that. Curious? Great! That’s what we like in a Softie!
Our Softies are a diverse and globally distributed team that are on a mission to change the future of data infrastructure with task-specific hardware and open source. We aim to do all the hard work so that our customers can adopt the best open source has to offer in a bulletproof and resilient way. Our team thinks differently, working as an integrated but globally dispersed team of experts in hardware manufacturing, firmware, software, infrastructure and everything in between.
We're looking to add a Systems Engineer to our newly created Product Engineering team, to help build out and test solutions, accelerate customer projects and bolster our product definition work. You’ll be working in a cross functional team with our product, marketing, sales and engineering teams.
Product Engineering works on quick-turnaround new technology projects to demonstrate how our server stack works and to make it easy for our partners, systems team, and our customers to deploy similar solutions. This can consist of first-time technology deployment/testing, demonstrating functionality and testing performance. We aim to automate and document everything we do, to ensure it can be easily consumed by others, both internally and by our channel partners and customers. Examples of recent projects include backup, data management, benchmarking, network automation, and containerisation.
Working alongside our product and solutions architecture teams, you’ll be working on:
You can expect to learn a lot about open source storage and networking, building Linux infrastructure, and performance testing. You should apply if you have:
We can teach you the rest, but it would be a great bonus if you have also touched:
Also, we know it's tough, but please try to avoid the confidence gap. You don't have to exactly match the above to be considered for this role; just be hard-working, resilient and willing to learn.
We pay competitively in the market in which you want to be located, and provide an attractive benefits package including significant share options in our fast growing, mid-stage start-up.
You tell us! This role gives you the freedom to live and work where you can be at your best. We operate globally and also have some pretty cool offices worldwide. Time travel (aka time zone optimisation) is one of our super powers and we use this to our best advantage in setting up teams and how we work. This role can be based in either our Berlin or Brno office, or remotely from Europe or the UK.
We work with like-minded companies across all of our business. We’re not into vendor lock-in of any type, we don’t do the hard sell and we treat time and attention as valuable resources. Recruitment agents, please don’t send us unsolicited resumes or CVs unless we’ve asked you to work with us on the role - it just shows us you’re not our type.
