  • Understanding how our processes work and how that translates into the data we have
  • Working with business managers to extract required data/reports
  • Diagnosing and helping fix production issues
  • Being available to help fix things out of hours, as needs arise
  • Not being phased by the strange variety of things that need doing in a growing company
  • Being proactive and not just waiting to be told the next thing to do
  • Finding better ways that we can get things done

Nice to have:

  • Familiarity with PAAS environments such as AWS
  • Experience with MS SQL Server
  • Experience using automated configuration/deployment tools such as Ansible or Docker
  • Experience in system security at network, OS, and database level


How we approach things:

  • Medium-sized company with a start-up culture and a can-do ethos.
  • We focus on getting stuff done, not on the process or management hierarchy.
  • Working remotely but communicating regularly.
  • Open-door policy across all levels and departments.
  • An inclusive environment with staff from all around the world.


What we offer:

  • A mostly remote and flexible working schedule. 
  • Generous time off varied based on the country of residence.
