About Elastisys

Elastisys is a fast-growing company at an exciting stage that offers cloud-based solutions and services for customers who want to run their applications and services in a scalable and secure way. We work at the forefront of the niche cloud-native IT area and our services and products are used by companies operating both within Sweden’s borders and on the European market, mainly in education, financial services and in health and medical care. We are active members of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). We are Sweden’s first Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP) and we contribute actively to the open source community!

We are board and video game enthusiasts, musicians, marathon runners, vegans, devoted parents, coffee drinkers, TV-show watchers, black-belt wearers, dog walkers, and quiet evenings likers who all value our flexible, knowledge sharing work environment and take pride in our diverse and caring culture.

We have 42 full-time employees coming from 11 different nations. 35 of us are engineers from juniors with little experience, to seniors where several have PhDs in cloud technology.

What we do

We develop and maintain our own open source Kubernetes distribution, Elastisys Compliant Kubernetes, that allows companies to be agile even in highly regulated environments, such as EdTech, FinTech and MedTech. Elastisys Compliant Kubernetes is also available as a Managed Service, where we operate the platform on selected cloud providers. In addition, we offer additional managed services such as PostgreSQL, Redis, and RabbitMQ.

We regularly work across most of the cloud native ecosystem and with projects and tools like:

  • Automation tools such as Kubespray, Ansible, Helm and Terraform
  • Security and compliance tools such as Falco, Harbor and OPA
  • Observability tools such as Prometheus, Grafana, and Opensearch.
  • CI/CD tools such as ArgoCD
  • Programming, scripting, and templating languages such as go, bash, mustache, and yaml
  • Highly-available databases such as Redis and Postgres

Our managed service offering is growing and we are now looking for talented technicians to staff our 1st line support.

In addition, we want you to identify common issues and work with our engineers to continually improve our managed service offerings.

At Elastisys we strive for an open and inclusive culture, where everybody’s voice is heard. We work as a team and support each other, always aiming to better ourselves and our offerings. We are connected to Teknikföretagen and following the Collective Agreement Tekniktjänstemannaavtalet, we offer all employees a wellness grant and a wellness hour each week. We strive for a healthy work/life balance and while we like to work together at the office, working remotely a few days a week is not a problem.

We are looking for both junior and senior technicians and attach great importance to equal opportunities for people of all genders and ethnicity. Join us if you share our passion for working with cutting-edge technology and enable worry-free managed services!

If you don’t meet all the requirements but think you would enjoy working with us, we would still like to receive your application!

Research has shown that lists of requirements can scare away suitable candidates who feel they don’t have exactly what it takes to apply. If you think this job sounds exciting, but your experience doesn’t perfectly match our description, we encourage you to apply anyway. Who knows, you might just be the one we’re looking for! Our vision is that you will be able to grow with us, learn and at the same time contribute with what you have. We are convinced that different backgrounds, experiences and diversity contribute to a better work environment, products and services where we can constantly learn from each other and have fun at work. Therefore, we put great emphasis on providing equal opportunities for people regardless of gender, ethnicity or background.
