How to be successful at Oda 🌟

We don’t expect you to know everything within your field. Still, it’s helpful to have at least a couple of years of professional experience developing services rooted in infrastructure and their operations and be motivated by setting up, configuring, and maintaining services used by others. 🔧

You’ll benefit from having an attitude of seeking knowledge and wanting to help others. We enjoy reducing complexity and try to improve undesirable work through automation. We always assume positive intent and believe that we can build each other up.🧑‍🔬

Some of the following could be helpful 💡

We don’t believe in hard requirements. Instead, we seek people with the right attitude and knowledge within the relevant fields. To succeed in the position, we believe it will be helpful for you to have experience or interests within one or more of these concepts:

☁️ Working with cloud engineering using any major cloud provider

⚙️ Defining Infrastructure-as-Code. We currently use Terraform, but the concept is more important the exact technology!

👷 Building and enhancing tooling and processes for increasing the productivity of engineers and engineering teams

📡 Fiddling with networks through setting up and configuring them regardless of being physical or virtual, be it Wi-Fi, firewalls, VLANs, routing, or VPNs; you may also have experienced first-hand that iptables aren’t spreadsheets!

🧑‍💻 Comfortable with programming and scripting; you don’t need an extensive prior experience with our technology stack

🧘 Cultivating a culture of observability through teaching best practices of instrumentation and monitoring

📦 Working on container management and orchestration

🪠 Developing tools and pipelines for building, integrating, verifying, deploying, and rolling back services and resources

🕵️ Working on observability and monitoring tools, integrating them with other systems, and managing the aggregated data. We use Grafana and friends, but don’t require any prior experience with that stack!

🔒 Implementing cloud security measures through zero trust principles, network segregation, web application firewall restrictions, IAM policies, or resource hardening

We do not require you to hold a degree from higher education. Instead, we value practical or theoretical knowledge within the relevant fields.
