Go beyond the clouds

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

In our Professional Services team (which we are now looking to strengthen), we help national and international customers with the implementation of cloud native open source technologies. The projects are versatile, niche and at the technological frontline of cloud-based development. We regularly work across most of the cloud native ecosystem and with open source projects surrounding Kubernetes.

Who we are looking for

Now we are looking for a senior (5+ years of experience) Go developer interested in taking a cloud native approach to application development. Ideally you enjoy a healthy mix of back-end development, Linux and open-source wizardry and have a love for DevOps and automation.

Come join us if you share our passion for working on the cutting edge of technology and want to help enable our vision that data-driven and intelligent automation is the future for IT operations.

Should haves

  • 5 years software development experience for backend, including 2 years in Go
  • Experience developing and maintaining REST-based or gRPC-based APIs
  • Experience using databases (e.g., PostgreSQL), message queues (e.g., RabbitMQ) and key-value caches (e.g., Redis)
  • Experience or willingness to learn cloud native technologies;
  • Strong communication skills in English (writing and speaking)
  • Caring about customers and other team members

Culture and workplace

At Elastisys, we have an open and inclusive culture, where we aim to make every employee’s voice heard. We work as a team and support each other, always aiming to better ourselves and our offerings. 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. In addition to salary we offer stock options and occupational pension and insurance according to our collective agreement, wellness grant and a wellness hour each week.

We attach great importance to equal opportunities for people of all genders and ethnicity and are looking for both junior and senior engineers. We have open positions at both the head office in Umeå and our office in Lund.
