Backend/Infrastructure engineer with extensive AWS skills
Data & Tech is a central product and tech unit that serves all of Schibsted. We are about 250+ people in Oslo, Stockholm, and Krakow, and collaborate closely with other product and tech teams in all units in Schibsted. Areas of responsibilities include data & technology strategy, privacy/data trends/responsible data & machine learning, information security, and internal IT.

Team Platform, Data Foundations, Schibsted
The platform team is present to reduce engineering friction, by providing a set of tools and infrastructure to facilitate various software engineering activities in the department, e.g. setting up new services, batch jobs and in the future ML-pipelines, thereby accelerating our ability to scale and deliver business value.

This is a totally new team in Data Foundations, starting from July 2021. The team consists today of 3 senior engineers, and we will scale with 2 more people! Are you our next colleague, ready for new challenges in an inclusive, international and collaborative environment?

The team will drive towards a state, where it is as easy as possible for department members to contribute with their own competence in different teams in Data Foundations. This will be done by gradually establishing a homogeneous infrastructure, with a smaller number of AWS accounts and a common set of operational principles.

The role

  • Proactively discover, understand, prioritize and eliminate engineering friction within Data Foundations.
  • Actively identify and reduce duplication of infrastructure components.
  • Keep track of our application security and perform necessary upgrades.
  • Monitor and optimize the cost structure of Data Foundations.
  • Secure adherence to best practices in collaboration with Tech Leads, Engineering Managers and the Data Foundations Architect.

Known immediate capabilities

  • Ad-hoc infrastructure automation that ties together EKS and Cloudformation setup, written in Python.
  • Diverse runtime environment (VM, serverless, container).
  • CI/CD pipelines in Travis and Spinnaker, coming as an offer from a central team.
  • How we perform operational metrics and monitoring (several DataDog accounts for metrics/alerting, Humio for logging, Pagerduty for high severity alerts).
  • Facilitating on-call within Data Foundations - owning the process, coordinating post mortems after incidents and driving work on process improvements after incidents.
