  • Overview

    We make it strangely simple for businesses to talk to clients, customers and colleagues, wherever they are. This is global communication redefined, free from the tyranny of PSTN lines.

    Voxbone is the best-kept secret in cloud communications, but we’re ready for our close up! That’s where you come in. As we spread the word and bring more customers aboard, we need a System Engineer / Linux Expert to join our Infrastructure team in Dublin, Ireland.

     

    Your work on the analysis and deployment of different systems for corporate and production usage on systems distributed over Europe, the Americas and Asia. As our System Engineer / Linux Expert you take part of challenging projects to scale up our infrastructure and new standards for building bricks used to run the products and services of Voxbone.

     

    You also ensure the uptime of Voxbone’s Infrastructure by making the right choice at all stages of the project lifecycle. You can for example define hardware needs and discuss design choices, work on optimizing and keeping in sync the configurations across the different platforms but also securing and improving the monitoring around those tools.

     

    You are part of a highly skilled and trained team with a vast variety of responsibilities and broad knowledge. You’ll be working with other Systems engineers but also Network and Switching Engineers of the Infrastructure operations team and in close relation with project managers, product owners, developers, R&D engineers and NOC members.

    You’ll work as part of a young and vibrant bunch of people across San Francisco, Austin, Los Angeles, London, Brussels, Iasi, Seoul and Hong Kong.

    Responsibilities

    You’ll function as a member of an agile project team, gathering requirements from all these involved parties, designing and implementing the infrastructure behind the overall solution. You ensure the solution meets all the operational requirements for availability, security, monitoring, alerting and scaling. You automate, test, challenge and demand to be challenged. You believe in “strong opinions, weakly held”, and you’re eager to learn.

     

    You’ll also act as a third line of escalation to the operations infrastructure team.
