LaterPay

HQ: Munich, Germany

  • Full-Time
What we’re looking for
LaterPay is looking for a full time Site Reliability Engineer to join our distributed tech team. 

We automate our infrastructure with Docker and Cloudformation. We operate our entire application on a CI/CD pipeline that you would help support by working with engineering teams on improving the process.

Your tasks
  • Designing and deploying tools for administration, configuration and monitoring of our infrastructure components.
  • Working with service owners to develop CloudFormation templates.
  • Maintaining best practices for security within AWS.
  • Partnering with the Engineering team on application building, implementation and fixing of issues.
  • Working with the Engineering team to keep incident response and security protocols up to date.
  • Joining the on-call rotation.
  • Evaluating and procuring new tools or technology vendors to help improve our system.
About you
  • A good command of English: written and verbal, producing and understanding.
    – As a distributed team, we primarily communicate via Slack, so the ability to clearly and completely communicate in written English is vital. 
    – We also frequently hop on calls, both audio and video, so the ability to clearly speak and understand English is also vital. 
  • A good surface/contextual-level understanding of “the full web stack”.
  • Experience with AWS and/or Docker would be good.
  • Knowledge of Elastic Beanstalk, and CloudFormation or Terraform would be terrific.
  • Familiarity with Python and its ecosystem would definitely be useful.
  • A desire to fix problems “properly” (not just paper over them) and an understanding that you often can’t fix problems properly. We want you to want to build a good-quality well-engineered solutions, but to know that sometimes you just need to “hack it in”. There are always tradeoffs to be made. 
  • The capability of taking a task and owning it. That doesn’t mean you necessarily do all the work, but it does mean you take on responsibility for completion, and ask for help and advice as appropriate.
About us
LaterPay makes it as simple as possible for users to buy, contribute, and donate for digital goods and services. Whether it is with the LaterPay method – allowing users to commit to purchase with one or two clicks, without registering or paying in advance – or the Pay Now method; the company offers a flexible and customizable platform for onboarding casual users into paying customers at an extremely high rate as opposed to traditional methods. LaterPay generates incremental revenues, drives user acquisition, and helps to reduce churn.

How we work
LaterPay has around 45 people spread over 12+ countries in time zones from UTC-8 to UTC+2. We’re a distributed team, though we have offices in Munich (DE) and New York (US).

We care more about the things you do than your presence at a chair at a desk at 9am every day. That said, most of us work Monday – Friday from 9ish UTC to 6ish UTC, and ideally you’ll overlap at least 4 hours with that. We try to be as asynchronous as possible, but still feel that we need some “synchronicity” to work well.

We value trust, ownership, collaboration, transparency, respect and inclusion. We’re proud to have employees from many different nationalities, genders, ages, backgrounds, educations, and races. We believe that intentionally assembling a diverse team is not only the right thing to do, but also necessary to build a product that works for and appeals to an audience that faithfully reflects our communities and our shared planet.
