  • Enable core dump to help future postmortems
  • Add a second DNS entry as a fallback in case of DNS server issue
  • Add logrotate on MongoDB logs

2nd month

  • Add prometheus stats of top 10 consuming memory processes
  • Properly get rid of old nginx service to use caddy

Preferred experience

  • You know very well OVH baremetal offers and usages (or any other baremetal hosting offer like Scaleway, Hetzner,…)

  • Having already worked in a fast-growing B2B SaaS startup is a plus

  • You like to communicate. You like to work remotely and Slack & Notion are your best friends

  • You’re better than us at least one thing. This can be in design, html/css, javascript, mongodb, sysadmin, …You should be able to teach us new things
