Vinted is the world’s biggest second-hand style marketplace. Our aim is to make second-hand first choice worldwide 🌎. Currently ~20 million people use our platform and Vinted’s Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team are the ones who develop and make sure our systems are up (availability target - 99.9%), perform well and are cost-effective.
This September Vinted has reached a major milestone - EBITDAM == 0 (EBITDA before Marketing as we consider marketing an investment), meaning that if we stop marketing efforts, we can run the company without external investments. The company is growing fast. It’s getting difficult for Vinted SRE to keep up with the workload.
Vinted SRE are curious individuals who like to master the technologies we choose to use. We use many technologies that we need to master deeply within a small team (3 engineers - Dmitry, Ernestas, Tomas and a lead - Titas. You’d be the 4th engineer). We evolve an infrastructure that consists of ~200 fat servers in 3 Data Centers. We are in charge of many things in a very fast-paced environment. This presents us all with great opportunities to grow as professionals, to take on new responsibilities and to shape the future of Vinted (and the world, hopefully, someday).
If this sounds interesting - you may well be just who we need. We’re looking for an engineer to join Vinted SRE in their work.
You should be willing to learn and master new technologies. We expect you to be familiar with most, and have deep knowledge in at least a few of the following disciplines: Software Engineering, Systems Architecture, Systems Administration, Networking, Monitoring, Configuration Management, Big Data, Systems Scaling, Systems Performance Tuning, Computer Science.
This role includes participation in an on-call rotation with the team every 5th / 6th week. In the last 10 weeks, we had an average of 3.3 incidents during a week (most of them during work hours) with an MTTA of 2 minutes and MTTR of 14 minutes according to PagerDuty. We compensate on-call duty by providing a vacation day after the rotation for you to rest.
