  • Would you like to manage a platform that uses hundreds of servers, using several TB of RAM?
  • Would working with a platform that handles thousands of requests per second and stores billions of records be a challenge for you?


We are building a world-class platform right out of Slovakia for clients on 5 continents. We enable e-commerce companies to show relevant personalized content for ultimate shopping experience.


With all key features developed, we are developing additional features and stabilizing the platform, which serves hundreds of servers and TBs of RAM to handle thousands of requests per second.

We are currently looking for new DevOps Engineers to help us maintain and improve the system it can grow much further without our customers noticing any hiccups.


We are looking also for a Teamleader to lead our DevOps team and to brace it for more development and growth.


Our platform:


The Overall Exponea architecture is inspired by Lambda architecture. For data ingestion we use an asynchronous API with basic input validation. All such events are put into Kafka for further data processing. We use several data storages for specific use cases such as MongoDB (primary copy of most of our data), Redis (cache, fast access, unstructured), MapR (long term archival, data science) and RabbitMQ (campaign workers). For several use cases we provide real time analysis API that triggers computation or data retrieval from our proprietary in-memory analytics engine.


Check out how we applied Lambda architecture at Exponea at WebElement #37


Our cloud solution is deployed on bare metal in Hetzner (DE) datacenter. For several clients we also have private instances, deployed on bare metal, AWS and Google Cloud.  We also use AWS for development environment. At this moment, we are opening markets in Germany and we will deploy our solution there in response to strong need for data protection.


Your role:

  • Actively participate in developing Exponea through almost all development phases.
  • Propose system changes for increased stability and scalability.
  • Improve development processes to facilitate testing and deploying code to production.
  • Monitor Exponea so we can quickly identify issues if and when they happen.
  • Resolve urgent issues in production, and once ready to do so, be available on-call.
  • Maintain our servers and virtual machines.

Our expectations of you:

  • General experience of the full web app development cycle (designing, building, testing, deploying, fixing).
  • Experience of operating highly-available services.
  • Experience of at least one server configuration tool.
  • Good command of written and oral English.

If you are eager to grow, but lack the requested experience, let us know. We are also looking for Junior DevOps Engineers.


What we’ll consider an asset:

  • Familiarity with Ansible, ideally from larger-scale projects.
  • Programming in Python, C++ or Go. The more coding experience, the better.
