Job Description

We are looking for a Senior Production/Reliability Engineer, a blend of pragmatic operator and software craftsperson that applies sound engineering principles to join our CowSwap team. You’ll be joining a distributed team with offices in Berlin & Lisbon and some fully remote people. You will be a part of our development team building new features and automation to help us run our systems smoothly. You will also be working closely with Gnosis’ DevOps team to improve our infrastructure setup and release processes.

About CowSwap

We are an ambitious, fast growing and international team working at the forefront of DeFi. We believe that we can make markets both more efficient and fair, by building the ultimate batch auction settlement layer across EVM compatible blockchains. 

We have been part of Gnosis since 2017 - one of the first projects building on Ethereum - and are now in the process of gaining our independence. We are looking to extend our team with high performers who are willing to take ownership and are focused on impact. If you are a team player who also strongly believes in the importance of integrity and long-termism of the ecosystem, you might fit right in

At CowSwap, we have been one of the thought leaders for using batch auctions to address front-running and miner extractable value problems on existing decentralized exchange platforms. CowSwap is also leveraging the concept of “ring trades” to boost liquidity in highly fragmented and long-tail token markets.

 Our tech stack

Product Code: Mainly Rust, some C++, Python & typescript

Observability Tools: Prometheus, Kibana, Elastic Search, Grafana, Elastalert

Cloud Service Tools: AWS, Kubernetes, Terraform

Continuous Integration Services: GitHub Actions, GitLab CI

Operating systems: Linux distributions (Ubuntu, Debian, Alpine)

What you'll do

  • Plan the growth of CowSwap’s infrastructure going forward
  • Implement and teach improved observability/monitoring practices 
  • Assist our on-call when issues do happen to prevent them from escalating?
  • Design, automate and test procedures for incident management and disaster recovery
  • Plan and lead automation projects that improve developer velocity
  • Improve our deployment process to make it as boring as possible
  • Run our infrastructure with Terraform and Kubernetes
  • Raise the bar on our on-call practices

Who you are

  • You like thinking about edge cases, failure modes, and adversarial behaviors in IT Systems.
  • You know your way around Unix and the Linux Shell
  • You have strong programming skills in at least one language
  • You have experience with observability tools like Grafana or ElasticSearch
  • You have experience with Nginx, Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, or similar
  • You show a high level of commitment and take ownership of your tasks. You are able to deal with ambiguity, enjoy working with little supervision and are a good communicator.

It’s a plus if you bring:

  • Understanding of the Ethereum blockchain/ecosystem
  • Rust knowledge
  • Statistics knowledge (in the context of anomaly detection)

What we can offer you

  • Flexible work environment: join one of our hubs in Berlin or Lisbon or work remotely with the option of joining a local coworking space 
  • Regular trips to reunite with the rest of the team 
  • Conference budget to keep up to date with the developments of the ecosystem
  • Learning budget to support your higher ambitions 
  • Impact: you are joining a startup where you can make a huge difference. Your work matters!

We look forward to your application!
