Our client is a highly profitable, major player in worldwide crypto markets and trades billions of dollars every month across a wide range of products. We are consistently ranked among the largest trading firms on the biggest exchanges in the space.

Our team is small and highly skilled and is looking to expand remotely. We are initially looking for an IT Ops Specialist with background in AWS Cloud and DevOps to assist with support, system management and generally being responsible for ensuring everything is running as it should.

We are a 24x7 operation and work in a fast paced environment where your work will directly impact on the profitability of the company as a whole.

The successful candidate needs to be able to take on challenges and think quickly and be self sufficient in solving complex problems. For those that are able to achieve this there are significant rewards available.

•    Maintenance of application infrastructure in AWS
•    Monitoring and error management in multiple environments and applications
•    Communication with management keeping them updated on any issues and working with them to come to a rapid resolution
•    Continuous improvement of monitoring, system efficiency, security and service reliability.

Required skills:
•    Basic Linux administration
•    Cloud and virtualization (Amazon AWS or equivalent)
•    Programming and configuration management (Python highly desirable)
