Site Reliability Engineer

Job description

Payconiq is a mobile payment company which is currently growing a strong presence in the BENELUX area and has a rich roadmap to conquer Europe.


We need a Site Reliability Engineer, or as you may know it SRE, who will build, monitor and operate the Payconiq platform enabling Product / Feature Teams to deploy their components to production in a simple, secure and reliable way.


We’re a 90 person fintech scaleup with 35 nationalities. We work together on a daily basis to transform the world of payments. It is our mission to become the most wanted mobile payment connection in all of Europe.


We stand for making bold decisions to enhance user experience, being human as that is the real core of our business, doing things simply as life is already complicated enough, keeping it playful, and always staying honest.


You may wonder what it’s like to work at Payconiq. Let us tell you:

  • Agile methodologies; we use SCRUM
  • Ever evolving; we’re always raising the bar higher than it was yesterday
  • Approachable, kind, smart people all over the office
  • Open to new ideas and cutting-edge tech, and of course, Hackathons
  • We love training and you get to choose how you will spend your 5% training budget; which is in addition to your salary


So what does life at Payconiq look like for the SRE team?

We work closely with back and frontend teams to develop our cloud-driven infrastructure. We use the latest technologies like Docker, Amazon Web Services with terraform, Kubernetes, and Ansible. We have strong coding skills. We have a very good understanding of REST APIs and CI/CD. Know better tools? Bring them on! Oh, and of course, we go on-call for one week every month or so, but don’t worry we’re compensated for it.


Key focus points for this position are:

  • Security
  • High availability/zero downtime
  • Focus on automation
  • Low maintenance infrastructure
  • Continuous integration/Continuous Deployment
  • Scalability


Sounds like a nice place to work? We think so too. If you like what you’ve read and believe yourself to be a positive-minded person who works well in a team, feel free to apply and let’s get the conversation started.


What the process will look like from here:

  • Video call with HR
  • Interview with our SRE Chapter Lead
  • Technical onsite workshop with the SRE Team; 4 hours
  • Final interview with the Head of IT
  • Hopefully an offer, visa processing if necessary, and just like that you are part of a new community of humans who share a common goal


Not sold just yet? Here’s the fun stuff:

  • Free fruit, tostis, coffee and tea
  • Macbook pro + tools to do your job well
  • Pool, Nintendo Switch, nerf gun battles, ping pong, foosball and pick-up football games
  • We socialize a lot outside of work so come hangout with us; hopefully you like karaoke because your Chapter Lead does ;)
  • Friday drinks and snacks
  • Public events in the office like MeetUps; you can even be a host
  • Regular company events throughout the year; join in time to come to our holiday party at Jopenkerk
  • Check out our culture video and our summer boat event as well


Looking forward to hearing from you!
