IT Specialist

You’ll work in the Systems team which is responsible for maintaining our platform’s technical infrastructure. You’ll be responsible for making sure our Linux servers and Mysql databases are always up and always running optimally by monitoring uptime, applying security updates, backups and other configurations. We like to use configuration management and IAC tools like Puppet, Ansible and Terraform for that.

At Vendo we operate a PCI compliant platform and we take security seriously. You’ll be responsible for adhering to industry standard security practices and suggest better ways to be more secure. You’ll help maintain and improve our systems monitoring and alerting infrastructure by building dashboards in Splunk to give us better insight into our operations and constantly search for improvements on how we are alerted about problems on our platform.

You’ll take part in deployments of our products to live, production servers. You'll use Vagrant to create development environments for our engineering teams and participate in regular meetings with those teams to discuss and plan the problems we need to resolve and the improvements we can make.

This is an exciting time for us as we are building a platform on AWS. You’ll get a chance to participate in that by helping to design and build cloud infrastructure using VPCs, EC2 and RDS. You’ll help us explore how serverless technologies and containerized infrastructure can help us bring products to market faster.
