Software Engineer (Europe) at Spacelift
Remote › 100% remote position (in European timezone) (Posted Sep 3 2021)
Spacelift is the most flexible CI/CD for infrastructure as code. Both small businesses and large enterprises use Spacelift to simplify how teams provision their infrastructure. It’s a hybrid of super-specialized, narrowly focused IaC automation tools and very generic CI/CDs like Jenkins or CircleCI. Our customers appreciate the openness, flexibility, and customization that Spacelift provides. Thanks to Spacelift, teams are able to boost their productivity, automate manual processes, and ensure control and compliance.
We recently raised $6M in funding to advance infrastructure as code. Among our investors are Blossom Capital, Hoxton Ventures, Inovo Venture Partners, and the founders of Supercell and Yelp.
As a software engineer, you’ll be working on the core product of Spacelift, which is an automation platform for infrastructure as code that adds a policy-as-code layer above it. The policies work as a very flexible customization tool for most core functionalities of Spacelift (git flow, workflow structure, access rights, etc.). You’ll be understanding and integrating various IaC tools, usually reducing them to a common meta-abstraction layer we’ve built to provide functionalities irrespective of the tool vendor. The whole platform is built on top of AWS and has a mostly event-based architecture.
