Platform.sh is a groundbreaking hosting and development tool for web applications. 


To reinforce our technical prowess, we are looking to grow our operations team. If you’re looking for an exciting, high-growth opportunity with an award-winning, cutting-edge company, this could be just the job for you


For its PaaS solution https://platform.sh is looking for an Operations and Service Reliability Engineer with a taste for Python and Go, great Linux system understanding, and a real hunger for the challenges of building robust, distributed systems.


Platform.sh is a PaaS shrouded in a lot of black magic (we can consistently clone a whole running cluster, with its state, databases, indexes in a matter of seconds). We want to get this down to the hundreds of milliseconds domain. Interested? There is more...


Our external API is pure Hypermedia REST + oAuth on top of Pyramid. It mechanizes the Git layer and needs more features.


We can consistently generate from the same manifest a Docker container, an LXC one, or VM disk images (AWS, Azure, OpenStack), we want more targets.


We probably have the highest industry container density. We need to get it higher.


We support any Python, Ruby, NodeJS or PHP, Java and .NET, time to roll-out Elixir, of course, Elixir (and Rust. We need Rust).


Directly reporting to one of our Directors for the Operations Infrastructure Department and in close interaction with our Engineering and Customer Success teams, you will be responsible for:


  • cloud operations: configure clusters, deploy stuff, follow-up on alerts, help customer support debug issues.


  • automating all of the above so they can instead drink margaritas (or non-alcoholic beverages, of course)


  • creating systems, tools & processes that will enhance our support and operations efficiency


  • improving service quality, discipline and reliability throughout lifecycle


  • monitoring operating objectives, streamline and automate intervention


  • continuous learning from Operations experience, modeled as software


This is a fully remote position for a candidate based in New Zealand. 

The ideal candidate


  • has proven successful experience in an operations role,


  • has demonstrated the ability to successfully manage cloud-based infrastructure for a fast growing organization,


  • has experience with containerization technologies,


  • has had exposure to cloud services (AWS, Azure, GCP, ...),


  • understands how an OS works, knows networking, how git works, and the constraints of a distributed system,


  • Puppet experience,


  • is proficient in Python (Golang a plus).


Nice to have 


  • knowledge of Magento Ecommerce, Symfony, Drupal, eZ Platform, or Typo3.


Note: we don't like stress, so we build everything to be robust and resilient, but stuff does break. This is a role with on-call duties and fire drills. If this fills you with dread... well, this might not be a fit for you.

We give developers the tools they need to experiment, innovate, get rapid feedback and deliver better-quality features with speed and confidence thanks to our unique rapid cloning technology.

About Platform.sh

View company profile

Platform.sh is a second generation, container based, Platform-as-a-Service.

It provides a new approach to cloud hosting that removes the need for devops, while developing or running web applications.

Clients using platform.sh see:

  • 40% increased productivity on average on their project development

  • Changes to production 5 to 10 times more often than before, accelerating as much their time to market

Platform.sh is highly suitable for development teams that deploy large or numerous mission critical web apps, in one or many territories.

We support many different technologies (ranging from Nodejs, to Python, PHP, RoR, java...) and have become the preferred PaaS of Magento, Symfony, EZ Systems, Typo3 and many more.

We deploy on several cloud vendors (AWS, Azure, Orange, Huawei) in all continents.

We are a fast growing, VC funded start-up, born in Europe, with almost half our staff in the US. We're supported by the European Commission R&D programs.

Our mission

Enable organizations to focus 100% of their time on building amazing experiences—and zero time managing infrastructure.

What we do

We take care of your infrastructure—from hosting and technology to global deployment and support—so you’re free to explore new ideas. Ideas you can turn quickly into apps and experiences that customers everywhere love. And that can increase your organization’s revenue potential.

Who we are

Nearly a decade ago, our founders began with a core belief: there's a better, simpler way to develop and deploy code. That companies of any size should be able to deploy anytime, anywhere without breakage. That it’s possible to build cloud infrastructure that abstracts away complexities, but not power or flexibility. That vision became Platform.sh—now adopted by more than 62,000 developers and thousands of companies (and growing rapidly) around the world.Where we come fromSure, we have offices in Paris and San Francisco. But our distributed team reaches across 5 continents, 13 time zones, and 22 languages. What we all have in common? Our mission (of course). And a passionate commitment to helping our customers succeed.
