Salary Competitive

We are looking for a curious and self-directed Finland-based DevOps engineer

As a DevOps Engineer at Hive Helsinki, you will own our infrastructure: you will maintain and optimize our existing systems, choose and implement new tools and technologies, and write tools and integrations to make our pedagogy more efficient.

You will be responsible for improving monitoring and observability with the right tools, writing our CI and CD pipelines, and collaborating with the team to implement best practices. Our stack lives on bare-metal servers and mostly runs on Docker containers. However, we are looking to migrate partly to cloud in the future, which makes experience with cloud platforms a great advantage.

We are a small, multi-talented team, endlessly curious about the intersection of technology and learning, and passionate about building a diverse and inclusive community of problem-solvers. We are hands-on and proactive doers with a startup mindset – and we hope you are too!

Our stacks

  • Python, Flask, Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Golang + (html,css,js)

  • Virtualization, ESXi, vCenter, Docker

  • Linux and OSX

  • Nginx, Apache

  • Github, Github actions

  • Ansible

  • Prometheus, Grafana

  • PostgreSQL, Influxdb, Redis, RabbitMQ

  • Monolith and Microservices


We expect you to be self-directed, responsible, and committed to building efficient, well-documented, and secure systems. You should be comfortable with analyzing product requirements to produce technical specifications that go beyond coding to cover testing, monitoring, and future maintainability. We hope you are a problem-solver who asks good questions and collaborates effectively with teammates.

Our team is looking for someone excited about learning and passionate about providing opportunities for others, because our students are our priority.

  • Do you want to truly own the systems you work on?

  • Do you have experience with ESXi and vCenter and writing Ansible playbooks?

  • Do you have experience and interest in Python, Ruby or Ruby on Rails running on Docker containers?

  • Can you effectively balance between building systems for the long term and getting new features out quickly?

  • Are you interested in working on a wide variety of tasks: from feature developments to all DevOps areas?

  • Do you care about the education of tomorrow?

If so, Hive Helsinki may be the right place for you. We hope you join us!

At Hive, you’ll enjoy a great deal of independence and responsibility. This role will give you the unique opportunity and invaluable experience of building a completely different kind of school, with potential to make a huge impact on our community and students’ lives.

Interested in joining our team and making an impact?

Submit your CV and application. We are looking to fill this position as soon as possible.
