This is Adyen

We took an unobvious approach to starting a payments company, building a platform from scratch. Today, we're the payments platform of choice for the world's brightest companies. Speed is the foundation of our company. We think fast. We work fast. We launch fast. We are honest, direct, and try to have some fun too. We’re creating our own path, with a global team driving sustainable growth. To maintain our momentum, we need people to join us in finding new ways of solving our unique challenges - people like you.

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 challenging 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, 


Who you are:

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.

You probably have experience with some of the below mentioned technologies and concepts, and are willing to learn the others;

  • Linux, Apache, Tomcat, Firewalls, network security protocols, databases, UNIX-related network services, TCP/IP networking, DNS, HTTP(s), 
  • System configuration and administration, load balancing, horizontal scaling, monitoring, Linux containers ecosystem and understanding of Linux kernel primitives (Namespaces, Linux Cap, cgroups, etc), core operating systems including network setup and maintenance, network security and distributed file systems;
