Scroll to content

Flightradar24 is the world’s most popular flight tracking service. More than 2 million people use our website and mobile apps every day. When something exciting happens, such as when the pope or the Antonov An-225 are flying, our servers get pummeled.

In addition to our systems and cloud infrastructures we operate a globally distributed network of 30,000 Raspberry Pi-based radio receivers, feeding real-time aircraft data into our platform.

We’re now looking for a talented and driven Site Reliability Engineer who is well versed in system administration, modern data center and cloud ops, and automation.

What you’ll do

  • Maintain and evolve our system infrastructure based on a modern
    virtualized data center environment as well as AWS and Azure cloud services
  • Standardize and automate the provisioning of infrastructure resources via Infrastructure-as-Code, orchestration, and configuration management
  • Optimize the reliability and performance of on-prem and cloud 
infrastructure, including networking, virtualization, SAN and other storage
  • Contribute to and support scaling out of infrastructure and services to cloud platforms
  • Interact closely with our developers to deliver a highly performant and reliable live production platform, and investigate production issues for continuous improvement
  • Be part of developing our future private cloud based on open technologies like OpenStack, Ceph, and KVM, and integration with public clouds
  • Over time work with much of our tech stack, including: Linux, Ansible, Terraform, Docker, Kubernetes, MySQL, Redis Cluster, RabbitMQ, Haproxy, Nginx, VMware ESXi, Juniper network equipment, Dell hardware, Dell EMC SAN, Cloudflare, AWS, Azure, Datadog

Who you are

  • Extensive professional experience in Linux system administration and operations, preferably on high throughput and low latency systems
  • Hands-on experience with service orchestration, containerization, automation, scripting, configuration management
  • Cloud experience, preferably including AWS EC2, S3, RDS, IAM, VPC, and relevant services
  • Experience with virtualization on bare-metal hardware, preferably VMware ESXi & vSphere, and working with hardware and equipment in data centers (although in this role, you will do so only remotely)
  • Networking experience, e.g. switch and firewall configuration and routing, is desirable
  • Experience with transforming growing environments of large-scale systems, including migration to modern architectures
  • A self-starter who naturally assumes responsibility for driving projects forward
  • Fluency in English, both spoken and written. Comfortable working in a distributed team of multiple nationalities

Note that this is a fully remote position, but we would like you be located within a 3-hour time difference from Sweden's timezone (CET/CEST) to align your working hours with the rest of the team.
