Job Description

CoinFLEX has a globally distributed Devops team which is critical in enabling our 24/7/365 trading operations. We are looking for a server side devops engineer to join the team in London to help improve our Devops function, whilst adding another pair of skilled hands to take some of the workload from the two incumbent team members in London. There is also an opportunity for this role to take on leadership responsibilities for the devops function globally if the right hire can be found.

We’re looking for an experienced hire, although seniority level is flexible between senior and lead, we have a few must haves and a load of nice to haves on the spec below which help to show the technology we currently work with. There is also a lot of opportunity at CoinFLEX to bring in new technologies as we are highly progressive.

We run a highly complex, high performance and mission critical set of systems which are live and trading all day, every day. This hire needs to be someone who is comfortable with this and the workload and odd hours it can sometimes bring, whilst this hire is aimed at alleviating the pressure on availability across the group, sometimes it will be ‘all hands to the pump’ to get things done. It’s important to note that this role will be on the on-call shift rota with the rest of team.

Skills and experience required

  • Linux.
  • Scripting, particularly Shell and or Python ideally.
  • Experience of automating processes which are initially manual, complex and laborious.
  • Some level of experience with AWS or perhaps another cloud provider.
  • Experience with messaging systems, we currently have Kafka and Rabbit MQ however experience with any messaging systems is fine.
  • An interest and appreciation of security techniques

Nice to Have

Team leadership experience, InfluxDB, ZeroMQ, Docker, Atlassian, Jira, Ansible, Jenkins, CI/CD, Kubernetes, SQL, PostgreSQL

CoinFLEX people

From tough but determined and successful beginnings we are forging strong company values for the business, we are building a team of smart, positive, collaborative, productive, ambitious, entrepreneurial, energetic and success oriented people.

This is an opportunity to make a profound difference to an emerging market sector, for example, if you work in the relatively mature equities or fiat FX markets, any work you do will very likely make an intangible difference to the markets or market infrastructure when compared with the gains which are to be made in the relatively infant cryptocurrency market infrastructure, particularly within the derivatives markets.

We are doing what we consider to be ground breaking and important work, however we want to have fun along the way so we have an informal yet professional atmosphere where people are encouraged to speak up. We have Bi-weekly company wide stand up meetings to aid communication and the overall cohesive growth of the already globally distributed business across Europe and Asia.

We also offer flexible working hours and partial working from home as necessary.
