Company Description|Job Description
Have you ever worked for a company that actually wanted you to bring your whole self to work every single day?
Tradeshift is a unicorn in the fintech industry. We are disrupting a typically stagnant environment by connecting companies of all sizes & providing them with the platform & network needed to create value from old processes like procurement, invoicing, payments, & workflow. We recognize that business is both messy & social - two revelations that have driven the development of Tradeshift, a platform for all your business interactions.
Expect engineer involvement from product inception through production support. Our teams have great autonomy & responsibility to choose the best solutions, technologies & approaches to bringing Tradeshift to the next level. Of course, this will not be easy; this role will face a lot of complex challenges in our growing, global, fast-paced startup.
We are looking for an outstanding DevOps Engineer with the skills to bring new products to market & improve our existing platform & products. You will have the opportunity to make a difference as we strive to connect all of the companies in the world & make business applications better for people.
The Tradeshift platform is hosted on AWS & composed of a number of Java applications (with a dash of node. js & Scala/Akka) using RabbitMQ, Elasticsearch, Riak, PostgreSQL, & Cassandra. All of our current infrastructure is highly automated with Jenkins, Rundeck, Puppet, Terraform, Docker, Kubernetes, Consul, etc playing key roles.
We work based on an agile value set & try to minimize the formal process footprint - no more than it takes for everyone to remain sane & productive. On the engineering side of things, we subscribe to continuous integration with a lot of automated testing, extending to our infrastructure related code. We also fully subscribe to automation of the build & release processes, test/behavior driven development, etc.

- Helping with investigations & root cause analysis often in real time
- Manage cloud provider operations cost
- Be part of on-call duties for maintaining the platform
- Identifying & removing performance bottlenecks throughout the platform, & improve platform security implementations
