We're looking to add a great DevOps engineer to our existing team.

🔍 We are looking for someone who: 🔍

  • has a track record of building infrastructure with Ansible on-prem or cloud
  • has experience with relational databases
  • worked with Rails (nice to have)
  • humble, can mentor others, both provide and receive direction and is always willing to share what they learn
  • overlaps with EST or CET zone at least 5 hours ( prefer America / Europe / Africa )

🔨 What you will do: 🔨

  • build out our infrastructure in Ansible
  • take ownership of uptime and performance of our backend systems
  • improve our monitoring and alerting

☘️ Where we are and how we work: ☘️

Our tech stack is Ansible and Ruby.

Working for Lifetimely doesn't feel like the usual office or startup gig: we are a distributed group of ten people across nine different countries 🇫🇮 🇺🇸 🇮🇳 🇫🇷 🇨🇱 🇪🇬 🇪🇸 🇮🇶 🇭🇷 with our own way of working. Some of us are nomads, some just like working remotely. We highly encourage written (long-form) communication and documenting things on Notion and generally don't like tight fixed schedules. There is not really much management or oversight, we expect you to know how to manage yourself. We prioritize shipping and results above how or when you do the work.

Two meetings per week, one for the devs on Tuesday, another one on Thursdays for everyone. That's it.

If you are into distributed work and prefer the lifestyle aspects or maybe live somewhere with not a lot of exciting startups, you will enjoy working with us.
