Senior Infrastructure Engineer (m/f/x) - Object Storage (remote oder on-site)

Object storage is a product that customers have asked us about for a very long time — and now we are finally building it. For that we are looking for a (Senior) Infrastructure Engineer (m/f/x) to help us shape, build, and operate our object storage offering.

While object storage itself is a fairly simple product, building and running it at scale is challenging. We want to offer our customers a S3-compatible API which they can use to upload their files like website assets, build artifacts, or nightly backups without the need to worry how and where their data is stored. And of course we want to offer that in the way Hetzner is famous for: with affordable pricing and great performance.

The position is remote within Germany and we also have an office in Unterföhring near Munich.

Your tasks

  • Design the network and hardware setup needed for running storage clusters
  • Collaborate with the datacenter and network teams to implement that design

  • Set up, configure, and maintain a large number of Linux machines

  • Operate large storage clusters and perform day-to-day operations

  • Build tooling and implement monitoring, observability, and incident management

  • Participate in on-call rotation to maintain availability of the service (everyone in the team does)

Your profile

  • Profound expertise in working with Linux systems
  • Experience in provisioning and working with on-premise infrastructure

  • Experience in running Kubernetes clusters

  • Experience with infrastructure as code tools like Ansible and Terraform

  • Excitement about large storage systems

  • Bonus: Experience with Ceph, MinIO, or similar systems
