Senior Backend engineer (golang)


Elastisys provides cloud native solutions and managed services that empower our customers to run their applications and services in a scalable, resilient way in public or on-prem clouds. We are active Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) members, Sweden’s first Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP) and open-source contributors.

Knowledge sharing is in our DNA: We help drive cloud native awareness and adoption through hosting meetups, talking at conferences and writing technical blog posts about the cloud native ecosystem. Internally, we share knowledge through weekly tech seminars and lessons learned sessions.

We are currently 35 full-time employees from 10 nations. Our engineers cover the entire experience spectrum from “just graduated from university” to senior engineers with PhD degrees in cloud computing. Our team more than doubled in size last year, and we are now looking to expand further.

What we do

We improve modern application development and operations processes using cloud native open source projects. We contribute to existing projects as well as build our own open source solutions, for example Compliant Kubernetes, a Kubernetes distribution that allows companies to be agile even in highly regulated environments, such as healthcare, public sector and financial services 

We also work together with international customers on open source implementation projects that are diverse, niched and on the technical frontlines of cloud native computing. Every project is unique, but the value we offer our customers is always high. We regularly work across most of the cloud native ecosystem, primarily with open source projects.

We are also marathon runners, cyclists, tinkerers, vegans, devoted fathers and mothers, board and video game enthusiasts, coffee drinkers, black-belt wearers, dog walkers, pilots, musicians and quiet evening likers. No matter your gender identity or your background, if you tick at least 3 keywords below or want to add a new quality to your set of skills, please get in touch with us.
