DevOps & Automations Engineer

Job description

The Role 

Linktree is looking for DevOps and Automation Engineers to build robust infrastructure, build pipelines and developer automations for our application and internal tools as we rapidly scale our product and organisation.

We work with modern but reliable tools, including but not limited to Terraform, Serverless Framework, Bash, Python, Varnish, Redis & AWS Kinesis.

Expertise in these areas is a huge plus, but having familiarity with other common tools (Puppet/Salt, Microsoft Azure + other scripting languages) are fine substitutes.

We’re a fast growing, collaborative team who genuinely enjoy working and playing together. Linktree is a cross-functional team of product managers, designers, backend and DevOps engineers with a common goal of making Linktree a great product.  

We are looking for engineers that can help us scale intelligently and fast, that value that simplicity and reliability are core aspects of a maintainable system, all the while curious about new and interesting problems, and the technologies to solve them.
