Peatix is looking for a Senior Platform Engineer to join the team that develops and maintains the technology platform our website and mobile applications run on. Working with a broad range of tools and technologies, you'll be documenting and making contributions to Peatix's infrastructure and codebase, building an understanding that allows you to educate other engineers and come up with ideas for how developer experience, tools and deployments can be improved.

  • Handle VPN and AWS access requests and continue to improve our staff authentication and authorization position.
  • Give technical onboarding to new developers and external contractors. 
  • Undertake and help others with SOC2 and other compliance projects, including improvements to our backup and restore processes.
  • Improve the experience of Peatix engineers by helping with technical problems and improving their CI/CD and local development tools.
  • Work on platform functionality in the Peatix codebase, both for direct benefit and to gain insight into the developer experience.
  • Work to improve our application quality and shipping velocity with observability tools that give engineering and other teams insight into how our systems are running in production.



Bonuses are bonuses ... we want you to apply even if you don't have bonus experience.

  • You have familiarity and experience with content distribution systems (CDNs and edge computation).
  • You have experience with Perl.
  • You can communicate in conversational level Japanese or above.
