What you can do:

  • Excellent development skills in Python (pytest)
  • Keen interest in test automation
  • Excellent Linux systems administration and networking skills
  • Fluent verbal and written English skills (Finnish not necessary)

What we value:

  • Hands-on experience with some of the following systems: Apache Kafka, PostgreSQL, InfluxDB, Elasticsearch, Cassandra, Zookeeper or MySQL

What we can offer:

  • A dynamic startup environment with a rapidly growing, international business
  • Highly experienced colleagues
  • Central office location in downtown Helsinki
  • Possibility for stock options on top of the monthly salary for permanent employees
