As our new Senior Infrastructure Engineer you’ll lead and organize a (growing) team of 4 infrastructure engineers that designs, builds and operates the Nerdalize Cloud systems that together form our distributed datacenter*. These systems include our Fiber-to-the-Home network, data storage, Kubernetes clusters, virtual machines, reliability monitoring system and more.
You’ll closely cooperate with other teams like:
Together with the founders and our senior system architects you’ll determine strategic technology choices that will shape the future of Nerdalize
Product Development - which builds our cloud products. You’ll help design the architecture of our tech stack.
Hardware R&D - which designs and builds our super efficient server-heating systems: the Nerdalize CloudBox*. You’ll help design the control, monitoring and security systems for the CloudBox.
Operations - which is responsible for the physical production and rollout of the CloudBox*. You’ll help expand our FttH network and monitor the CloudBox performance in the field.
*Distributed datacenter? Say what?! Yes, at Nerdalize we're dead serious about building the cloud one house at the time. By placing our servers in homes instead of in a datacenter, we can efficiently reuse the excess heat to heat up tap water. Check out this video to learn more. Or just fiddle about with our cloud platform yourself!
