The Role

At Personio we are on the amazing journey of becoming the leading HR Platform in Europe!

Join our team as a Junior Site Reliability Engineer and collaborate with our Senior Engineers to shape our engineering culture and the future of our platform. Side-by-side with best in class Software and Site Reliability Engineers, you will work in an effective team, aligned to our Technology Platform Tribe. Here you will improve your developer skills in a high-impact driven environment. Be involved in the full cycle of Personio’s infrastructure (from inception to maintenance), and learn about the architecture of our complex, mission-critical HR Operating System.

What you need to succeed

Our current biggest engineering challenge is to transform our legacy (PHP, Ruby on Rails) monolithic systems into Kotlin microservices. For infrastructure, we use AWS, Docker and Kubernetes. While we don’t expect you to be an expert in all of these technologies already, we would appreciate an open mindset, the willingness to learn and the following profile:

  • At least 1 year of experience writing web applications in an agile software team gained through student work and internships or professional working experience
  • Experience with a scripting language (like Bash, Python or Golang) and SQL-based relational database design (Postgres / MySQL) 
  • You are familiar with infrastructure as a code in a cloud hosted (ideally AWS) environment. Experience with pipelines, Terraform or Docker in production is a plus
  • Driven by impact. You are eager to create customer value, and learn best-practice engineering skills on the way
  • Curiosity. You are eager to learn new skills and technologies. You are always seeking to improve and grow
  • Proactive problem solver. You are committed to leave code and engineering practices in a better shape than when you first encountered them
  • Teamplayer. You are passionate about working with international talented teammates. Your heart beats for receiving and giving feedback, to grow both personally and as an engineer
