Senior Engineer (Infra/Cloud)

Netherlands, Noord-Holland, AmsterdamInfra

Job description


Please view the Crunchr career page:


The infrastructure team at Crunchr has a unique challenge: Our clients are big companies (3,000-80,000 employees) that need to do massive analysis using postgres queries (on HR data via the Crunchr tool) and need strong guarantees of isolation/security. In order to accomplish this we've created an Ansible/Terraform setup that can bootstrap the entire infrastructure on Openstack. Client servers can be created/updated via a Jenkins interface that other teams use, so that we can focus on development instead of admin tasks. Along the way extra services were added such as:

  • Single Sign-On for clients and our own employees
  • A data-transfer portal to receive confidential data from clients
  • An ETL pipeline to import that data into our databases
  • Logging, Monitoring, Error tracking etc.

Most of these services are hosted on our own VPSes using open-source software that is configured via Ansible. Our current challenge is to scale the system from 40 to 400 clients and making it even more self-service for clients. Some of your responsibilities are:

  • Maintaining our OpenStack/VPS based infrastructure
  • Lead the redesign of our infrastructure towards containerisation
  • Supporting the Product Team and Customer Success Team regarding infra issues
  • Troubleshooting problems relating to infra
  • Participating in stand-ups, retros, code reviews design sessions and risk assessments

Note: this role can be performed partly remote.


  • A Master’s degree in computer science or a related field is required.
  • At least 8 years of experience as an infra engineer.
  • Extensive knowledge of Kubernetes.
  • Experience with Terraform, Ansible and CLI Unix tools (such as sshm grep and ping)
  • Python programming skills.
  • Excellent verbal and written English communication skills.
  • You are a great fit with our core values.
  • And above all: you’d like to develop yourself, our technology and our product to the next level!


  • A role in which you can have great impact, you’ll be part of a scale-up that is building something big!
  • A well-connected office in Amsterdam with a beautiful skyline and freshly prepared lunch every day.
  • Competitive salary and secondary conditions like a stock option plan and a fully paid pension plan.
