Linux Specialist in Copenhagen, Denmark

Linux Specialist




Do you want to join us on our ambitious mission to secure the digital world? Keepit is looking for a Linux Specialist to join our Engineering Team in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Keepit is a fast-growing IT scale-up with many years of experience in software and data protection. Our mission is to help companies around the world protect and manage their cloud-based data. Our team is both academically and culturally diverse, and we have more than thirty different nationalities working together to promote trust and security in a world transforming towards new levels of digitalization. 

We are growing fast as a company, and we are set on using our momentum to bring our SaaS cloud-based backup services to a global audience. We are proud of our product which we believe can solve many of the data-security issues that people and organizations encounter worldwide. In order to grow, we need to improve our product continuously. Therefore, we are currently looking at strengthening our team with a highly skilled Linux Specialist. 

The Keepit platform is a set of networked services working in concert; we have a strong emphasis on performance and reliability, which influences how we approach development and write our code. The Keepit product is built from scratch which means that we can improve our platform as we see fit and address any issues we encounter. The entire platform runs on Linux. To support our growth with more and larger customers in more regions of the world, we need specialists with an in-depth understanding of the Linux kernel and its surrounding ecosystem.

As a Linux Specialist with Keepit, you will help us develop and improve our world-leading cloud-backup solution. You will help us solve the tasks and challenges we encounter on our way, and you will help us continuously iterate our platform to make sure that it lives up to the highest standards for security and performance.

The types of technical challenges that you will be solving with your team could be:

- Performance troubleshooting - if a service is not performing as expected, troubleshooting the process interactions on a live server in order to identify the root cause and propose a remedy, possibly in collaboration with the development team.

- Planning, testing, and executing Postgres database cluster migration from an older version to a newer version with little or no user-visible interruptions.

- Designing the next iteration of our network infrastructure for high-performance multi-site communication, and planning and executing the transition from the previous iteration with no customer visible downtime. 

As a Linux specialist, you will be joining our growing international Engineering team and you will play a significant role in the continued growth and success of our company. You will refer to our Chief Technology Officer, Jakob, and your office will be at Parken, the national stadium of Denmark. At Keepit, we take pride in being an equal opportunity employer and recognize how being a diverse workplace strengthens our product, customer relationships, and work culture.
