About You

Kafka is looking for an experienced remote Systems Engineer Kafka Specialist with knowledge, so if you've got what it takes then send your resume!

We provide managed Kafka clusters for use by other teams, and we manage the infrastructure that is used to accomplish this. We are responsible for deploying virtual infrastructure into our OpenStack private cloud as well as building all of those systems you'll need when it comes time to monitor or log your services in order make sure everything goes smoothly at scale!

At Tucows, we’re always looking for new ways to make our products better. If you have experience with this framework or want jump into helping evolve it further then please get back to me ASAP as positions are limited.

What You Are:

  • You have extensive experience working remote with and solving issues on behalf of customers who rely heavily upon the stability, security, performance enhancing characteristics that Linux brings to their business.
  • You have experience with configuration management tools like Saltstack, Ansible or Puppet. You are familiar using these technologies to maintain infrastructure and you know how they can be used for security assessments too.
  • You have a wealth of experience with Kafka and related components. You know how to use schema registry, which is perfect for this task!
  • Automation is one of your passions. You love to automate things and see people's reactions when they can't believe how easy a simple task has become!
  • You might have experience working with a container orchestration system (i.e., Nomad, Kubernetes).
  • You have worked with the cloud. You’re a pro at getting to know how each one works and what they offer, but don't worry if you're not an expert by any means! It's all about learning from experience so that when we need our expertise again in future projects/jobs (i'm sure there will be more), then might as well roll up those sleeves because it'll feel pretty good being able to say "I did this on my own.
  • You're an excellent remote team player who not only enjoys helping others learn but also has a knack for it. You possess the rare ability to teach and be taught, which makes people want nothing more than for you guide their every step on this journey called life! 2/3rds compromise: Help us grow while we take care of what's most important - ourselves
