Linux System Engineer
Adyen is looking for senior System Engineers for its Infrastructure & Operations team in Amsterdam. You will be working on a distributed, real-time, 24/7 system with interesting performance and security requirements. Your main goal is keeping our in-house developed platform in top shape. You’ll be replacing, re-building and refactoring components of a complicated, bespoke infrastructure. You love to deep dive through the internals of these components and come out the other end. Instead of just consuming technologies, you will be expected to push them.

The ideal candidate should have a solid Linux background with broad systems experience. You have a mind-set to automate and avoid repetitive tasks. Perhaps most important; you are a true team-player who is open to feedback, and are able to work in a 24/7 environment, diagnose problems, make quick informed decisions and handle pressure.
