Who are we

We’re a team of 10 DevOps engineers. Our main task is to provide a stable and scalable platform for our applications and ensure our developers can continuously build and deploy new features. We work mostly with web application developers (backend, Java, JavaScript, WordPress, .NET). To achieve this, we rely on Ansible, Terraform, Docker, Sensu, and a whole suite of AWS and Azure services.

We like turtles and automatization. We know where the skeletons are buried. We hold the Power of Root at our fingertips. We find a way or make one.

  • knowledge of disaster recovery principles and practices, including planning, testing, and backup/restore

Tools we use

GitHub
We keep our work in GitHub (or Bitbucket – depending on project/client) and use pull request flow as our daily routine.
Slack
Whether we work remotely or at the office, Slack enables us to exchange information, discuss code, make decisions quickly, and stay on top of things.
Handbook
Through the years we’ve built a vast repository of knowledge that serves as our guide and shows how we make our applications.

What can you
expect from us?

We offer a number of benefits, high-quality tools,
bad jokes, and a stimulating work environment.

01
Professional development
Learning & development
We believe that honest two-way feedback is the foundation of growth. In our bi-weekly one-on-one talks and quarterly 360 reviews, we discuss what’s good and what could be better.
Versatile projects
Our teams get to work on very interesting projects for renowned brands and clients from a range of industries, some of which we can’t namedrop due to NDAs.
Educational budget
If you’re eager to learn, we’re eager to help. Every employee receives an educational budget to buy books, attend courses or visit conferences.
Contributing to open source
Sharing is caring doesn’t only apply to chocolate. Our way of giving back to the community is publishing open-source libraries and resources.
Paid language courses
Paid language courses help our employees master the English language, in addition to being fluent in their programming languages.
Doing a career switch
We don’t have a sorting hat to tell you where you belong, but we will support your career switch from one job position to another. More info here.
Traveling on business
Having clients all over the world means our employees sometimes have to travel to and work from beautiful locations. Gotta do what you gotta do.
02
Health &
Family life
Subsidized recreation
Stay in shape with a sponsored fitness membership of your choice. You never know when the elevator is going to go out of order.
Sponsored health checks
You know the old saying – the greatest wealth is health. Regular health checks are on us, getting your five-a-day in is on you.
Flexible working hours
Hate waking up very early or fancy going for a run at the lunch break? Tailor your working hours to fit your schedule.
Paid vacation for everyone
Students or non-students, everybody deserves a carefree time-out to recharge their batteries. Bon voyage!
03
Around
the office
Free power-ups
Snack on fruit, cookies, and nuts to keep your energy levels up, then pour a cup of strong tea or coffee over it for a good measure.
Car and bike parking
Whether your ride comes on two wheels or four, don’t let it get caught in the rain. We offer free parking for bicycles and subsidize car parking.  
Working remotely
We like people who go the extra mile, so we don’t let miles and kilometers limit us. Office location? Anywhere. It’s all about flexibility.
Fun and games budget
Every team gets a monthly budget to hang out and do fun stuff. While foodie teams love restaurant hopping, adrenaline seekers prefer to get locked up in escape rooms.
Bring your dog to work
If your four-legged friend doesn’t eat MacBooks, let him tag along. Your colleagues will appreciate the stress relief.
