We are looking to hire a devops engineer to help run our platform. This is a complex web app that allows users to edit their scientific documents in collaboration with others, in real-time.

Your role will involve helping us to run and maintain our microservice infrastructure, debug live problems, improve security and adopt new technologies and best practices, such as continuous deployment. You will also be looking into live issues if they occur, and helping to diagnose and fix problems in production.

We have an on-call rota for production issues out-of-ours which would require you to be available at certain times. This is flexible and usually covers 1-2 days per week, for which there is compensation. You would not be required to work additional hours for this.

Most of your time will be spent working with Docker, Google Kubernetes Engine and Terraform on Google Cloud Platform, but you may also write or modify tools written in JavaScript or Ruby.

Most of our microservices are written in Node.js using MongoDB, PostgreSQL and Redis.

Overleaf is based on open-source software, and most of our product code is itself open source. You can find it on GitHub: https://github.com/overleaf/overleaf

As a member of the Engineering team at Overleaf, you will be helping to make Overleaf the place where scientists, researchers and academics go to do their best work.
