Job description

Catawiki’s purpose is to enable people to discover and obtain special objects that help them fulfill their passions. In doing so, we add some color & make the world a more interesting place!

Catawiki is looking for an experienced Site Reliability Engineer for our international web platform.

Here’s Vladimir, our Platform Engineering Manager

“For the last few years, we’ve been on an exceptional journey scaling Catawiki Platform from just a few servers managed manually to a dozen  Kubernetes clusters running in the Cloud powering tens of microservices. Cloud Native technologies and automation are just a couple things that we employ on every step to take us further down the line with the greatest efficiency. 

One of the most important ingredients for success that we care the most about are the people who are always open and passionately engaged to deal with all the challenges that we tackle along the way."

With your expertise in software and systems engineering, you will be responsible for Catawiki Platform reliability and automation by:

  • Proactively assessing reliability aspects and addressing concerns
  • Developing Platform automation and eliminating menial tasks
  • Making sure Platform is properly instrumented and monitored
  • Identifying and establishing Service Level Indicators and Objectives
  • Sharing on-call responsibilities
  • Guiding Engineering teams on reliability best practices and approaches

You'll move in sync with…

As a part of a team of professionals (software/systems/data/test engineers and product/project managers) within a functional area, you’ll be making sure scalability and reliability aspects are built in and being delivered on all steps of development lifecycle and smooth operations.

A little bit about you

You measure everything, implement gradual changes and accept failure as normal. By sharing ownership with developers and using the same tools you reduce organizational silos.

You leverage tooling and automation, effectively solve and communicate problems.

Next, to this  it’s likely you’ll also have:

  • Strong experience in software and/or systems engineering
  • Experience being DevOps and/or SRE engineer
  • Practical knowledge of Kubernetes and other Cloud Native technologies
  • Good knowledge of relational and familiarity with NoSQL databases
  • High problem solving, analytical and troubleshooting skills
  • Passion for details and a great level of pragmatism

The Catawiki Story

A piece of the moon, a complete dinosaur skeleton, the Pope's hat, the world's smallest book - at Catawiki, we come across extraordinary objects such as these every day. As Europe’s fastest growing online auction platform, our mission is to make special objects available to everyone.

In fact, 14 million users are buying and selling on Catawiki every month. This means we are continually growing and always on the lookout for new talent!

Born and raised in The Netherlands, we started in 2008 as a platform where collectors could manage their collections online. Yet, times change, ideas evolve, and in 2011 we hosted our first online auction and we haven’t looked back since! We’ve now grown to 500 Catawikians working across 7 international offices and are proud to have maintained our start-up mentality.  

Here’s what we can offer you

A diverse and international team with over 40 different nationalities, located in the heart of Amsterdam and Assen with an easy-going atmosphere. The Catawiki Community gathers everyone together for everything from ‘CataFooty’ to International Food Festivals, Friday Drinks, Board Game Nights, Pub Quizzes and Boot Camps!

And there’s more! We also provide paid holidays, holiday allowance and a pension plan paid for by Catawiki.
