We're looking for a next level Platform Engineer who is crazy about automation

FULL-TIME · AMSTERDAM

Every day, millions of people rely on WeTransfer to share their creative ideas. So, the work we do matters. Come and be a part of it.


We built WeTransfer to provide an elegant experience for people who want a trustworthy and hassle-free way of transferring files. When we first decided that a platform should have ‘non-traditional’ advertising, people thought we were crazy (they still do!). We could have plastered our pages with annoying, intrusive banners and hit the jackpot. But we took the long road instead, our service is now not just about sharing files, it’s about sharing experiences and creativity.

At WeTransfer, we are using ‘native content’ to build better relationships with our users. By partnering with some of the world’s most recognised brands and exciting creative-minds we are able to deliver beautiful and relevant content whether it’s paid for or not. They add relevance, experience and creativity to our platform. We’ve established a community that brands can legitimately be a part of, and that’s something no click through can buy.

Perhaps this is why our click-through rates and engagement are so much higher than any other platform.

What you’ll be doing

In the platform team you'll be responsible for the design, implementation, and maintenance of our infrastructure. Together with the product teams you will work on processes and tools to get code into production. You will help make our systems more scalable, more efficient, and easier to manage. You respond to incidents and improve alerting where needed.

Some projects you will be working on are:

  • continuous integration and deployment of Ruby and Elixir applications
  • improving reliability and availability of our MySQL and Redis databases
  • high-volume logging and event solutions using Logstash and Elasticsearch
  • making sure effective Grafana dashboards using InfluxDB metrics are in place

Impact the experience of millions of users around the world.

Who we are looking for?

Above all else we value open communication and good teamwork to achieve a shared vision. We are looking for proactivity in spotting problem areas and proposing ideas for improvements. Ideally you have a couple of years hands-on experience with infrastructure-as-code, continuous integration, and the design of systems for high availability and fault tolerance. Don’t worry if your experience is limited, we’re looking for enthusiastic junior platform engineers as well.

Do you have a tendency to automate everything you get your hands on?
