Cloud Operations Engineer

At HATCH we're looking for a Cloud Operations Engineer to join our team.

Full-time · Amsterdam

Do you love to automate? Feel proud when your system is resilient? Love the idea of working on a product that could change an industry? Keep reading!

Tell me more about the role! 🎬

HATCH is creating a product that pushes the boundaries of fashion. Because that’s our aim: to digitize wholesale fashion for good through the HATCH Digital Showroom (Trust us, it’s needed!).

It’s hard to box this role into ‘DevFinSecBlahOps’ or ‘SRE’: we’re a startup, so it’s a bit of everything! You will continue building and growing our cloud platform that can support dozens of customers, worldwide, 24/7.

You will be working in a team of talented and skilled engineers. 

Well, what’s your tech stack? 🏛

  • Infrastructure: AWS + Kubernetes built with Terraform 

  • Backend: Golang services

  • Data: Postgres, Elasticsearch, Redis

  • CI/CD: Github actions, Helm

  • Frontend: TypeScript, React, GraphQL, Styled Components, Cypress.

  • Code collaboration: Github, simplified git flow, always merge through PRs with review

  • Other: WebSocket, OIDC, JWT, gRPC, Prometheus, Sentry, Mixpanel

What about you? 🥁

Are you excited about the role? We hope so! Here’s what we’re looking for in you:

You are a team player by nature. Such a cliche for a job description, we know. But: we really mean this. Be ready to be given freedom in your decisions while always keeping in mind our team goals.

You are action oriented and care to get things done: if it is the team’s responsibility, it is never not your job.

You have experience in building and running a cloud platform.

You prefer writing code over using whatever cloud console.

You are up to the challenge of formalizing best practices, developing the culture, and coaching the team.

You like to share your knowledge. Visited a conference or a meetup? Read a cool book or a blog post? You know something better? We are ready to absorb it all!

Aced the above? Apply! 🎉 Here’s the selection procedure in a nutshell 🥜

No need for long motivation letters, the only thing we would like to hear when you apply, is WHY? Why HATCH and why this role?

The first step in the procedure is a ‘coffee chat’ where you’ll connect with a HATCH team member by phone or video call. This gives you an opportunity to learn about HATCH and the role and us an opportunity to get to know you.

We will ask you to show some code. If you have a cool project (on Github) - that might be enough. Otherwise, we will ask you to do a small assignment.

Next step is the interview phase. There is a technical interview, where you’ll meet two engineers, and the one with Head of Product & Head of Design.
