We are a full-spectrum e-commerce platform, used and loved by thousands of entrepreneurs all over the world. We have offices in Portland, Sydney and Manila.

We are growing fast and we’re looking for an experienced DevOps engineer to work closely with our CTO in Sydney. If you’re not already in Australia, we’re open to sponsoring the right candidate so you can move to Sydney (about the most awesome and livable city in the world in our opinion).

Our engineering team is a friendly and cosmopolitan bunch - British, French, American, Brazilian, Chinese, Slovakian, in fact from pretty much everywhere. They pride themselves on competence, no corporate-BS, transparency and flexible working. Everyone at Selz works from home or from the office whenever they want - wherever helps them most to do great work.

One of our strategic goals is to provide our merchants with an exceptional, high-availability experience. We rely on the health, scalability and security of our ever-expanding cloud infrastructure to do that.

So we are looking for talented and experienced engineers who know how to manage and contribute to our cloud infrastructure. You will be an “engineer to the engineers”, helping them to understand and leverage our infrastructure and platform to deliver even better features. Your contributions will have a lasting impact on Selz as we expand and evolve.

Build and scale our cloud-based infrastructure

Knowledge of security hardening and analysis – IDS/IPS, log analysis, alerting

Network analysis and troubleshooting experience – VPN, NAT, DNS, subnets, firewalls, TLS, tcpdump, wireshark, apparmor

Prior experience implementing Disaster Recovery and Backups

You'll fit in if…

You want to be part of a team that cares about transparency, no BS, doing great work and having fun whilst you are doing it

You want to be part of a modern, global, rapidly expanding company that is doing something exciting

You’re organized and a good manager of time

You think and act creatively to solve problems

You are a good communicator and collaborator (essential as this a remote role)

You take things very personally and are willing to go the extra mile

Technology stack:

Live in Sydney - like the most totally awesome and livable city in the world
