Currently underway! As a global fintech company, Openpay is defining the next generation of payments. We believe people and businesses should have freedom and flexibility in how they pay with no hidden catches. In doing so we’re changing the way people pay, for the better, and we’d love you to join us in our mission.

This Amberfication is led by in-store, mobile app, and online payments.

What you’ll be doing :

  • Performing system administration tasks on servers and databases
  • Managing cloud networks and network infrastructure components (firewalls, load balancers, traffic managers, etc)
  • Working with DevOps engineers to manage the deployment of applications to production
  • Using IaC tools such as CloudFormation to managing infrastructure provisioning in a consistent and reliable manner
  • Writing scripts to automate various tasks to assist with system and database administration
  • Working with engineering teams to ensure instrumentation and telemetry tools are configured to allow monitoring at the application level
  • Performing resiliency and disaster recovery testing

A bit about you :

  • Experience working with AWS cloud infrastructure and services
  • Experience building and managing container-based infrastructure using Docker
  • Experience with IaC technologies (CDK, CloudFormation, Terraform, etc)
  • Experience administering and using observability tools (Datadog, NewRelic, AppDynamics, SumoLogic, Splunk, etc)
  • Database administration skills
  • Scripting experience for automation on Linux and Windows platforms.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills

The Team you'll be joining:

We believe every new team member has an opportunity to add to our culture – we’re a vibrant team of Podcasters, Ultra-Marathoners, Weightlifters, Chess Players, Students and more, so we’re looking for people who want to be part of a diverse and ever changing team.

Being part of a growing Fintech means you’ll need to be self-starter with high energy, motivation and focus on achieving targets. You’ll crave the unknown and be excited by the opportunity to challenge yourself every day. As we grow, we change, so you’ll be flexible, willing to evolve as our systems and processes do. Always tenacious, you’ll relentlessly pursue opportunities and will be quick to bounce back if you encounter a setback. Most importantly, you’ll be kind - our team appreciate and support each other (particularly this year) so you’ll want to be part of that team spirit.

If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you!
