DevOps Engineer, Core ML & Data Engineering
The team builds high-quality and scalable data infrastructure and tooling and owns the company's core data logistics, as well as the central data processing and analysis infrastructure. As our data volumes keep on growing our tools need to be scalable and robust to support this. Each team member has ownership of a certain tool and envisions for its future - is the tool serving its purpose and how should it function in the future? The development work is done together inside the team, one sprint at a time.
The team has also identified the direction they want to take in the future and e.g. data mesh architecture, data catalogs, geo-replication, stream processing and automatic data quality monitoring will be in their focus. Sound like challenges you’d also want to be working with?
You’ll be the first DevOps Engineer in the team, so you’ll have a huge impact and you’ll take ownership of building, maintaining and automating our data infrastructure. You’ll also be responsible for access management, making sure the data we’re processing is protected and the environment we work in is secure.
The team is based in Helsinki HQ but welcomes a new member to the Helsinki HQ or working entirely remotely elsewhere in Finland, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, or Estonia now and in the future!

You’ll be a great asset to the team if you have experience in building and maintaining infrastructure in the cloud environment (preferably AWS), very good knowledge of Linux servers and bash scripting (Python or other programming language will be a plus). You’re great at building CI/CD pipelines, you know your way around Docker and Kubernetes, Terraform (or similar IaC tool) is not a mystery to you and you’ve worked with databases like Postgres, MongoDB, Snowflake. Previous experience with Kafka will be a significant advantage.
