  • About your future Team

    The infrastructure team sits right at the intersection of engineering teams at JustWatch. We build tools that shape how engineers deliver code to tens of millions of users around the world, and we strive to make it an exceptional experience.
    Our mission is made possible by creating an infrastructure that is based on an open source foundation, yet shaped by software we develop to reach the right level of convenience. We are not a team of trend chasers nor archaeologists - our infrastructure is built by pragmatically choosing modern pieces of technology over reinventing the wheel. When faced with a problem that isn’t solved already, we build the solution. When faced with an uncertain ecosystem, we observe the development, learn and go with more robust choices.

    Our stack:

    Our stack consists of Golang, Kubernetes, Prometheus, ScyllaDB, PostgreSQL and ElasticSearch all running on Google Cloud Platform, and you will play an integral role in shaping and evolving our tech stack.

    We love challenging goals. We question everything. We are always learning, and we are excellent in execution. We believe in the 80/20 rule and try to apply common sense and pragmatism to everything.

    Here's what you'll do

    • Proactively reach out to other teams and ask the right questions
    • Come up with creative solutions to problems faced by engineering teams
    • Write services in Golang, command infrastructure in Terraform/HCL and deal with YAML - among other languages & tools that exist in the SRE landscape
    • Build and use our observability stack. We don’t build monitoring for sake of KPIs, but to have a real insight into our infrastructure and services
    • You’ll be a mentor to engineers on their way to build services, providing insights all the way from writing the code or building a container to database design
    • Last but not least, maintain the infrastructure that powers JustWatch. Databases, container orchestration, networking, resource utilization - anything needed for smooth operations of our platform

    What you will need

    • Willingness and ability to thrive in an environment that isn’t driven by agile process, but by freedom and responsibility
    • Eagerness to learn and explore new technologies, and mindset to make the right decisions in adopting or not adopting them
    • Engineering experience and empathy to understand what makes engineers build
    • Service-oriented mindset, and desire to help others before chasing infrastructure inefficiencies
    • Experience with at least some of the technologies in our stack. We’re also looking for experience beyond our stack, and are open to new approaches

    If you feel like you are missing some of the hard skills – don’t worry, we are hiring for the attitude, values, and personality.

    We have started to slowly get back to our new offices at the historic Backfabrik, where we will work in a hybrid mode. If you do not live in Berlin, we provide relocation and visa support.

    If you prefer working remotely from your location, you can do it as well.

    We embrace our entrepreneurial responsibilities. Through our 6-figure environmental and social impact budget, we offset every employee’s carbon footprint, give back to the community, support causes that matter, and have recently implemented a wellbeing and mental health programme.
