What we’re looking for 🔎

Join our growing engineering team as we extend Splash into brand new markets.  Our modular software and scalable cloud infrastructure allows us to be stable and flexible as we provide SaaS features to our free and paid clients. We deal in workflow, efficiency optimization, and bulk data manipulation.  We are building out an API-driven service-oriented architecture using PHP, Go, Nodejs and more. Our vision for the future is continuously evolving, with plans to introduce microservices into our infrastructure this year. Our roles not only involve understanding and contributing quality code to our existing architecture, but also being a key part of the initiatives that will lead us forward.

You’ll be responsible for assessing the complexity, design solutions for new features, implement, and iterate on your product. You'll have the opportunity to become the leader of your projects and other critical initiatives that are important to you and Splash.

The development and product teams are at Splash's core and contribute directly to the success of our team and company. We're proud to belong to a company where we continuously challenge each other to level up our skills and techniques - and we expect all our engineers to be inspired and evolve our conventions and tools.

In this role, you’ll get to…

  • Successfully implement and rollout a microservices’ architecture and infrastructure
  • Ability to scale products to support enterprise customers
  • Optimize engineers’ software development throughput and performance.
  • Help implement an international strategy across our infrastructure and services.
  • Decouple older architectural, monolithic systems and update with modern approaches.
  • Directly contribute to increasing platform uptime and SLA metrics.
  • Provide engineers with scalable and safe service management.
  • Spread good energy and enthusiasm to the rest of the team. Find the fun!

On your first day, we’ll expect you to have…

  • 3+ years experience as DevOps, SRE, or similar.
  • 2+ years experience with microservices in production.
  • 2+ years production level Kubernetes experience.
  • 2+ years production level Docker experience.

  • Experience with Infrastructure as Code in production. (Terraform, Crossplane)
  • Experience with AWS, GCP, and/or Azure. experience.
  • Familiar with Ansible, SaltStack, Chef, Puppet etc.)
  • Fluency in written and spoken English.

Not a dealbreaker, but it’d be great if you had…

  • 6+ years total professional experience.  
  • Competency in Kafka (AWS MSK)
  • Competency in Python, Golang, Ruby or similar.
  • Ideally a year of Software Engineering experience.


What we offer and other fun stuff!

We’re taking a new and improved approach to compensation and the way we #takecare of our Splashers. An approach that makes a lot more sense in this remote world we live in and looking toward the future of work. You can read more here. In a nutshell, we offer…

  • 💰 Competitive base salary and stock options. Our success is your success 📈
  •  💻 Brand new MacBook Pro / Linux and monthly stipend for work-from-home expenses.
  • 🏥 Great healthcare benefits with Sanitas, with paid coverage for you and your family
  • 🌴 Plenty of vacation days, with Splash-specific days off and 2 extra Mental Escape (M.E.) days per month to unplug from work
  •  🗺 Remote first organization
  • ✍️ If you are based in Spain, a full-time indefinite contract (contrato indefinido).
  • A bunch of other great perks/benefits that would make this description too long if we included it 😉

It doesn’t stop there! Although we’re a remote company, we understand the importance of in-person connection. We have a yearly company offsite in New York (pending it being safe health-wise) and fun virtual events with the rest of your team and the company (IRL too when it’s safe!).
