About You

As a senior member of the Cloud Engineering team, you’ll be working to provide tools, guardrails and advice to Tide’s engineers, enabling them to provision the cloud infrastructure they need to build out Tide’s extensive feature roadmap. You’ll also be tasked with ensuring the availability and security of our AWS-hosted, containerised microservices platform, and working to ensure that we’re ready to scale in line with our big international ambitions.

You’ll work closely with colleagues in Tide’s InfoSec function, as well as with engineering teams working in Java, Python, Swift and NodeJS and more. You’ll help us to roll out infrastructure across new territories around the world, ensuring standardised environments wherever Tide operates and enabling rapid rollout into new countries.

You’ll help us to scale our engineering function by providing standardised deployment pipelines, superior tooling and pursuing a desire to automate everything. Our aim for 2021 is to ensure that no engineer needs to wait for us to do their job - we’re aggressively pursuing a self-service model, working on tooling, and chasing down a backlog of tasks that machines are better at than humans. 

This is a remote position but at this point we're only considering applications from Romania. Occasional traveling to our office in Sofia is expected.

Some of the things you’ll be doing:

  • Building a rapid deployment pipeline to roll out new infrastructure environments in minutes
  • Helping to remove Tide’s legacy infrastructure and standardise on modern, managed infrastructure
  • Finding creative ways to remove awkward manual maintenance tasks
  • Ensuring automatic compliance with Tide’s security standards and maintaining the security of our network perimeter
  • Providing stable, secure, scalable core platform services like databases, Kafka, hardware security modules and container orchestration

You’ll be a great fit if: 

  • You have wide-ranging experience with AWS
  • You have strong understanding of Docker
  • You’re great with Terraform and ideally have some Terragrunt experience
  • You have strong Python coding skills
  • You have a desire to build pipelines for everything
  • You have a can-do attitude with an ability to own problems and see things through
  • You have experience with a container orchestration tool like Kubernetes, ECS or Swarm
  • You have an appreciation of software engineering principles
