Medior/Senior DevOps Engineer (Linux)

Please note that we are only able to hire Dutch residents or persons already holding a work permit. We do not sponsor work permit applications.

TL;DR: Always wanted to work at an innovative tech startup? But also value a stable basis, job security and good employment conditions? As a DevOps Engineer at Cyberfusion you experience 'the best of both worlds'.

Are you also deeply rooted in the 'Linux and open source' camp and are you:

  • a Linux Engineer or System Administrator who is ready for more freedom, responsibility and/or wants to develop more broadly, or;
  • a DevOps Engineer who prefers to really dive into depth. Instead of just using existing solutions or ready-made services from cloud providers, or;
  • a Software Developer who wants to learn much more about infrastructure and architecture?

Then read on. It's worth it.

Meet Cyberfusion

Cyberfusion was created by responding to questions from web agencies and SaaS companies. In 7 years' time, we have built a solid and enthusiastic customer base. Now, it's time for the next step. Our ambition: to become the largest WebOps platform for web professionals in Europe. Realistic? Certainly. Because…

What makes Cyberfusion unique?

Cyberfusion will become a WebOps platform purpose-built to host, monitor, secure and optimize many websites and applications in one place. Until now, this was only possible with overcomplicated solutions from American cloud providers. With unique cluster technology, among other things, we offer the perfect solution for our target group: web professionals who manage many websites and applications for end customers. Cyberfusion is therefore the first all-in-one platform for this target group.

How do you contribute to our ambition? In other words: what are you going to do?

Cool stuff. At least, if you like challenges and can handle a high degree of responsibility. You will co-manage and develop Cyberfusion's fully automated platform. And this platform is complex. After all, it interweaves hosting, monitoring, security and optimization at a deep level.

Your work is therefore very varied:

  • It is estimated that you focus on automation and new features 70% of the time. For example, building a Python API that reads statistics from systemd cgroups (which other developers can use) or writing Ansible playbooks for setting up and managing internal applications (such as NextCloud and GitLab).
  • About 20% of the time you perform manual maintenance, such as upgrading hundreds of nodes in our self-built cluster platform or debugging an unexpected VRRP failover. Not always the most fun work, but necessary to provide the quality and reliability that is expected of us.
  • The remaining 10% of the time you handle support questions from technical customers. This will decrease over time.

Your future perspective

As Cyberfusion grows, you may develop towards Team Lead. For example, you will then also be involved in training and guiding colleagues. However, if you want to keep focusing on technology while also being the source of information for colleagues, that is also possible. Whatever your future role: your contribution is crucial to achieving our ambition from day 1.

We think your mentality is more important than your experience. With this attitude, working at Cyberfusion feels like home:

  • With 'Linux and open source' camp, you immediately understand what we mean. We think this is a form of mentality, too. You don't have to be an expert in the software on which our platform is built (including Ansible, Python, HAProxy and RabbitMQ) yet, as long as you have the fundamental knowledge and the will to master these techniques.
  • You think quality is super important. You get the time and space to make things you are proud of: that is better in the long term. At the same time, you understand that sometimes things have to be finished at the agreed time. If you work longer to make that happen, you compensate for that time at another (suitable) moment.
  • You have a 'getting things done' spirit. If something doesn't work immediately, you are creative enough to come up with other possible solutions. And you get the space for that. You really enjoy getting your teeth into something. We can't do anything with general comments like "I don't understand". However, we are happy to answer each other's specific questions.
  • You understand the importance of (proactive) communication. For example, if you are unable to keep an appointment, you report this in a timely manner.
  • You enjoy discussing the approach together in broad terms. You, like your colleagues, find it important to keep each other sharp with critical questions. This is how you come up with the best ideas together. You then like to work on the implementation independently, although there is always room for further consultation.

You recognize yourself in this:

  • Ideally, you have several years of work experience in this or a related role. If you are still a (late) junior, but you have the right mentality, surprise us.
  • You have the analytical ability to hold your own within a complex landscape of many integrated systems. We build everything ourselves. And you think that's cool.
  • You enjoy continuously gaining new knowledge to feed your need for challenges.
  • You write and speak fluent English. Bonus points if you speak Dutch as well, or take language courses from your vitality budget (not required).
  • You prefer to work 40 hours (but 32+ hours is negotiable). In addition, you have no problem working - as soon as you are ready - at least 1, but preferably 2 or 3 days a week, on standby shifts outside office hours. At an additional fee, of course, even if there are no incidents. We determine the days in consultation. This can be set up flexibly.

Your impact is significant, which we reward with:

  • A salary that matches your knowledge and experience. Overall this means between € 3,500 (beginning intermediate) - € 6,000 (full senior). Because we are open to different backgrounds, we can make this more concrete in consultation.
  • A standby allowance of € 25 gross per shift on working days and € 50 on days off, even without incidents. This can amount to € 400 extra per month for 3 days a week.
  • An office right next to Eindhoven Central Station. But hybrid working is the new normal: as long as you communicate when you work where, it's up to you. Although you understand that it is sometimes more convenient to meet in person. Additional advantage: lunch at the office and sometimes also in the city center are included.
  • Flexible working hours. For real. Whether you start at 7:00 AM or 2:00 PM, everything is negotiable. As long as there is sufficient overlap in working hours.
  • An annual contract with the prospect of a permanent contract.
  • Full travel allowance for public transport or an allowance of 23 cents per km for the car and bicycle.
  • A work-from-home allowance of € 2,35 per day.
  • Pension scheme (and employer contribution) in consultation.
  • At least 25 vacation days based on full-time employment.
  • A minimum training budget of € 1,500 per year to spend freely.
  • A choice budget of € 1,500 extra per year to add to your training budget or to buy extra vacation days.
  • A vitality budget of up to € 50 per month. For example, for boxing lessons or a swimming subscription. Or purchasing sportswear. This is completely up to you.
  • The resources you need to do your job well, both in the office and at home (such as a MacBook, an iPhone and a good workplace).
  • The opportunity to form the basis of and grow with an already proven startup.

Finally:

  • Our website is a reflection of the current form of Cyberfusion. So there are discrepancies between what you read here and what is on the website (such as DirectAdmin; we will no longer use that).
