Working with Linktree's engineering team to ensure our platform runs, securely, quickly, and efficiently at a rapidly increasing scale and velocity. There is a strong belief at Linktree that DevOps is a culture and not an individuals position, as siloing that responsibility would go against the core purpose of Devops.
Our platform is on AWS so we will call this core requirement #1 but we do look for engineers with a diverse skill set. If you've previously worked in technologies like Node, PHP, PostgreSQL or REST API, you'll have a better understanding of our wider code base. AWS certifications aren't the holy grail for us either, nothing against them but we know plenty of great engineers haven't had the time to sit those certifications.
We have grown quickly in 2020, from 20 people to 50 + in the past 8 months, and have more growth planned due to the continued expansion of our customer base around the world. We are looking for 2 or 3 platform engineers so are open to different levels of seniority.

(note, we aren't expecting you to have experience with ALL of these)
Where is this role based?
Our CTO Mitch Malone is also fully remote so you could be anywhere in Australia really. We are mostly based in Melbourne but currently have engineers in Perth, Tasmania, Newcastle, Queensland, country Victoria, and Ireland. We are still all working from home due to COVID but plan on being a mixed remote and on-site company once we are in "the new normal".
What is your dev environment like?
Linktree has grown a lot and quite quickly, which means our structures and processes aren't perfect, yet. That should be ok with you and if anything, appeal to you so you can contribute to the design of those systems.
We are agile and we expect our Engineers to do requirements analysis and work closely with Product Managers and Designers on developing user stories. Our Engineering team writes unit, integration, and e2e tests and we are developing a strong Devops environment - you'll be a big part of this too.
What is your company culture like?
Linktree's company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:
