What you can expect at SysEleven...

To break new ground, you need motivated colleagues who think and tackle the problem. Only with the right drive can you build sustainable solutions from such a large server landscape.

An infrastructure with more than 15,000 CPU cores! with more than 32TB RAM! and over 5PB storage! is at your disposal. Your daily tools are http(s), Git(lab)|hub, vim and ssh. But because of a broad customer base, you will get in touch with a variety of other software:

Apache, Nginx, MySQL, php, Elasticsearch, Redis, Memcached, Icinga, Zabbix, Elk-Stack, Java, RabbitMQ, PostgreSQL, Tomcat, Varnish, ipTables, Xtrabackup, OpenStack, Kubernetes, and many more.

A good dose of humor and quick-wittedness will easily integrate you into the team. In addition to games, fun and excitement, however, there are also situations where you have to roll up your sleeves and get to work in order to destroy one or the other burden of the past once and for all.

At the same time we look ahead and exchange ideas with the community at events such as the PuppetConf in San Francisco or the DevOpsCon in Berlin and bring back the latest trends.

Besides the important requirements such as team spirit, mate tea and good coffee, varied catering, and flexible working hours, you can rely on the following with us:

We want to develop continuously. This means, on the one hand, that constructive criticism is desired across all hierarchies, because the following applies to us: We communicate on an equal footing and the better argument wins! On the other hand, we develop as an organization only as fast as each one of us. Hence, we support each other with external training, conferences, internal knowledge exchange. In short: everything that helps you to successfully master your mission at SysEleven and to further develop yourself personally.

As a result, we have very bright minds working for us, which is why we do not shy away from having technical experts make specialist decisions. That means you are allowed to take responsibility, contribute and implement your ideas and really exert influence. Errors are also allowed!
