Infrastructure Engineer

Zivver is hiring a Remote Infrastructure Engineer

Does starting with a clean slate sound good to you? If so, we have the role for you. Zivver is on the verge of a new version of our platform. This is a great opportunity for infrastructure engineers who want to work at one of Amsterdam's favorite tech scale ups. We offer high-end secure communication solutions for ministries, lawyers, and hospitals and are on the look-out for new colleagues who wants to get their hands dirty working on a challenging technical product, with the best tools at their disposal.

Our platform is a SaaS application written in Scala that serves our Angular Typescript web application and C# MicrosofOffice plugin (yes, we like strong static typing). We manage our infrastructure (running on AWS) as code: if it's not under version control in git, it does not exist. Would you fit the team?

“You’ll be part of our versatile, multicultural young engineering team”, says Johan, your soon-to-be-manager. “It makes a great job for an engineer who wants to grow into senior projects or someone who worked in IT for some time and is retraining as a cloud engineer.”

Hot takes

  • Developing infrastructure is just like developing a product. There’s users who have needs that have to be met.

  • You refer to container technology as ‘cgroups’ rather than ‘Docker’.

  • DevOps is a mindset, not a function or a role.

  • You’re always looking to add automation where it’s needed.

  • You noticed this last bullet point is the only one that’s not sorted.


A day at Zivver

Office or home office? It’s your call. You decide to work from home today, as it allows you to go out for a walk and grab a sandwich with a colleague who lives nearby during your lunch break. Today, you start at 09:30h and start off with checking the output of the daily backup tasks. The backup of GitLab failed because the server ran out of temp disk space.

You notice your colleague Rohitalready removed some old log files and restarted the backup task. This allows you to focus on the database locking issue you discovered yesterday. After querying the application logs in Kibana, you come to the conclusion that one code path in the backend can easily be consolidated to do only one write operation instead of two. You write a fix and a test and you ask Pablofrom the back-end guilt to review your code. It's time to have lunch because in the afternoon you have a meeting on how to set up and improve the auto scaling of the backend service.

Later in the afternoon you discuss the performance and platform related bug reports during the daily stand up. Your review this morning was accepted, but your peer insisted on writing a better scaladoc. After adding a few useful comment lines, you merge your branch. A release to production can wait for tomorrow, so it's time to hit that shut down button.

Responsibilities

  • Develop, maintain and support Zivver’s infrastructure

  • Enable dev teams to operate the software they write

  • Educate teams to adopt a DevOps mindset

  • Keep up with the pace of our fast growing company


Benefits

  • An exciting, fast-growing, energetic environment
  • Flexible working hours a location (we fully support working-from-home or remotely)
  • A pension plan
  • Great office in Amsterdam and awesome people with different nationalities
  • At least €1.000,- per year on personal development budget
  • Not a single day will feel the same

Zivver is hiring a Remote Scala Backend Engineer

How does diving into the world of secure digital communication for ministries, law firms, and healthcare professionals sound to you? Well, this is what we do at Zivver. We’re building the future of secure communications with a platform used by over one million users, across all industries, to securely share sensitive information - and we're rapidly scaling up.

Our guiding philosophy is that secure communication requires excellent usability. To help us in this journey, we’re currently expanding the team with a Scala Engineer.

It’s your job is to deliver quality for the Zivver platform which is used by around 1.5 million users. That said, you won’t be ticking off tickets all day - you make an impact on many levels; helping your teammates grow, sharing your voice and knowledge within the team, and initiating new ways of working.

According to your new colleague Keyvan, you do the cool stuff: “We offer a challenge that developers like to deal with: it’s all about security, encryption and certainly something your brain can chew on. And as long as you deliver, you are free to organize the day as you like.”


Hot takes

  • #raisethebar is your mantra

  • Not all ideas end up being great, but every great solution starts with creative ideas

  • We explore new technologies but understand the need for delivering a reliable and mature product

  • Your opinion matters


A day at Zivver

Today, you're finishing up a story that updates the way email message bodies are stored in Amazon S3. You need to complete the unit tests, and will create a merge request soon. After that, you ping a few developers for review. While running the pipeline, you notice that a test is failing for which you have some doubts so you connect with Keyvan, Mark and Kieren on Slack and together you fix the issue in the blink of an eye. You schedule a meeting with the team later this week to discuss the lessons learned and how we can avoid future issues.

Then it’s time to pick up the task you assigned yourself from the board of the current Sprint. You’ve found yourself in a puzzle and reach out to the team on Slack to answer your questions and discuss strategies with.

After a well deserved lunch break, you meet up with the Zivver Backend Guild. During this weekly video call, you share experiences and focus on how to approve our backend from a technical point of view. After a rather productive day so far, you revise your plan for the rest of the day. You help out a colleague reviewing a bunch of internal docs and share your knowledge and best practices. After a quick meeting with the team in the afternoon, you check out your schedule for tomorrow. Great! No meetings until 11. You decide to come in late tomorrow, as you want to go for a swim in the morning and know it’s okay to take some back as long as you attend any required meetings and keep your team up-to-date on what you're doing.


Responsibilities

Technical

  • Develop new features for and maintain performance of the Zivver Backend platform

  • Review code of colleagues and suggest improvements

  • Be the go-to person for internal communication

  • Contribute to the increased stability, scalability and usability of the Zivver platform

Personal

  • You understand the value of team effort, you share your input so together we can get stuff done

  • Speed and quality are what you’re about. You know your craft and you #get-it-done.

  • You have high standards for code quality

  • You’re not afraid to share your opinion and advocate on your expertise

  • You’re ready to contribute to the Zivver Backend Guild and share your experience with others


Benefits

  • An exciting, fast-growing, energetic environment

  • Flexible working hours and location (we fully support working-from-home or remotely)

  • A pension plan

  • Relocation package

  • Great office and awesome people with different nationalities

  • At least €1.000,- per year on personal development budget

Senior Angular Software Engineer

ZivverAmsterdam, Netherlands, Remote

Zivver is hiring a Remote Senior Angular Software Engineer

At Zivver, we're building the future of secure communications. Our platform helps hundreds of thousands of users securely communicate sensitive information, and we're rapidly scaling up. Our guiding philosophy is that secure communication requires excellent usability. As a front-end software engineer, that's where you'll be making your most significant impact.


Our platform is a SaaS application that is served to our users as an Angular web application, Chrome extension and several other frontends. Your job is to develop new applications and features using Angular/Typescript. You'll be working closely with designers, product managers, and other engineers to build new features and migrate our existing AngularJS web application to our Angular-based mono repo.


As we are scaling up fast, you'll have the unique opportunity to impact our product and processes. You’ll be working in a dynamic, international scrum team with a remote-first approach, but we’re keeping HQ open for people that like to work from the office. With our scale up mentality, your development skills will be aimed at our code, processes and also at your colleagues.


A day at Zivver

It's Wednesday morning and it's time to get to work. You decide when you start and end the day, as long as you attend any required meetings and keep your team up-to-date on what you're doing. With COVID-restrictions in place, almost everyone works from home.


Today, you're finishing up a story that allows you to show a notification when a message has been sent successfully in our new Angular web app. You're just completing the unit tests, and will create a merge request soon. You'll need to ping a few developers for review.


At 9:45 an automated slack message asks you to give a quick daily update what you're working on today, you have until noon to give that update and you leave two lines on the story you're finishing up and what you're picking up next. You spend some time reviewing other people's merge requests, and leave some supportive comments and a few improvement suggestions.


After lunch, you have a weekly refinement meeting. You've added some technical details to a few stories the team is planning to pick up soon. The team needs a little more detail on a couple of edge cases that were missed, but you all decide that you have enough information to estimate the story and pick it up next sprint.


Having finished the refinement, you decide to pick up one of the open tasks in the current sprint, which is focused on getting a key mail flow live in the new web app. You get most of the afternoon to focus with no interruptions, but there's one final meeting left: a quick design review on upcoming features. The designs look amazing, but you have some feedback on technical feasibility and effort. You all agree to scope down the first version a little, and add more of the detail later.

Hot Take

  • After experiencing TypeScript you really don’t want to go back to plain Javascript

  • Write tests now, instead of fixing bugs later

  • You’re into the latest technology but understand the need for mature frameworks

  • You will be part of a strong team with a focus on building something exciting and not just “bug fixing and tweaking”


Responsibilities

Technical

  •  Write, review and maintain web application code, primarily in Angular

  • Work in a team of front-end developers on our web application

  • Work closely with designers to develop and maintain our design system

  • Participate in the whole lifecycle of features, from design to implementation and maintenance

  • Contribute to our CI/CD setup

  • Take part in and contribute to team activities, rituals and process improvements

  • You own your work!


Personal

  • You're comfortable communicating in English both verbally and written.

  • You have a strong appreciation for the user and keep their needs front and center

  • You’re a team player that understands the challenges of working remotely. You value clear documentation and communication that support this way of working.

  • You see software development as a collaborative effort. You're happy to help others and not afraid to ask for help when you need it.


Benefit

  • An exciting, fast-growing, energetic environment

  • Flexible working hours and location (we fully support working-from-home or remotely)

  • A pension plan

  • Great office and awesome people with different nationalities

  • At least €1.000,- per year on personal development budget
