Job Description

We at gridscale build and maintain next generation Cloud-Infrastructures for our clients.
Our goal is to provide the easiest and most reliable IaaS and PaaS solutions.

Who is behind gridscale? An experienced, motivated and creative Team that aims to grow and therefore needs your Support.

As a Linux Systems Engineer it is your task to build, maintain and further develop the Linux systems that run our Virtualization and Control Plane.
In close cooperation with our development teams you will optimize the configurations for product deployment and ensure a smooth process. You learn from mistakes and analyze problems – “Fail fast, learn fast”.

Then we would love to get to know you!
