Who are they?

At Upflow, we’re building the platform revolutionizing how B2B businesses get paid.

Today, most companies are still struggling to collect payments from their customers: hundreds of unpaid invoices, anarchic communications, multiple payment methods. They lose tons of hours on zero value-added tasks, suffer from late payments that hinder their growth, and sometimes simply go bust because of cash flow issues. It’s time for a change.

Upflow is the modern hub to manage all data exchanges, communications, and payments to get paid faster, simpler. We are a product-led organization solving this problem with a tech approach.

We’ve launched in 2018 and are trusted by hundreds of awesome users in the EU & US including Lattice, Front, Triplebyte, Iziwork, ProductBoard, Proxyclick, and more. We’re also backed by leading investors (YCombinator, 9yards, eFounders) and top executives business angels from N26, Square, Mercury, Uber, and Netsuite.

We’re a remote-friendly, distributed team across 3 continents and rapidly expanding. Now’s a perfect time to join if you’re looking for an exciting international experience.

Job description

Why we need you

We have important infrastructure projects to deliver next year such as migrating from Heroku to GCP, running in multiple regions, improving our resilience & performance, measuring & improving our email delivery performance, automating lots of dbt data pipelines, etc…

We need someone with the required hands-on expertise as well as the ability to organize their work and collaborate.

Our current stack

  • 100% Typescript app & backend built using React, Node.js+Express, Postgres and Redis. Monolith hosted on Heroku (to be migrated to GCP) + CloudFlare
  • BigQuery as a datawarehouse. dbt for transformation. Stitch for synchronization.
  • Datadog + Sentry for monitoring. Github Advanced Security.
  • Full continuous delivery on CircleCI, with multiple deploys per day.

What you will do

  • Design, terraform & maintain our cloud infrastructure & migrate it to GCP. Develop and maintain solutions for backups, disaster recovery, etc. Ensure our overall infrastructure is optimized & cost-effective.
  • Design for security & compliance and follow industry best-practices for security, access control and configuration management.
  • Work collaboratively with multiple teams to help deliver our larger end-to-end products and features, seeing them through from design to delivery and always making sure you eventually remove yourself from the day-to-day
  • Swarm with engineering teams to resolve production issues, participate in root cause analysis and follow-up on action plans. You are part of the on-call rotation.

Preferred experience

You:

  • Have an entrepreneurial mindset and are at ease in a very fast paced and rapidly changing environment.
  • Have experiences in cloud infrastructure (GCP ideally but not required), Terraform (or similar), and running software in Kubernetes, to be able to make architectural decisions & evangelize the platform quickly
  • Are fluent in Linux, Docker, Bash, (possibly) Go with strong knowledge of networking concepts (e.g. Firewalls, NAT, Port, Subnetting, VPC, VPNs…) and web security.
  • Are an enabler, not a gatekeeper; know how to maintain a good working relationship with software engineers, know how to be proactive on your scope and negotiate priorities with team leads, the head of security, etc
  • You understand that DevSecOps tooling is a space that’s developing.

Recruitment process

  • Discovery call with Talent Acquisition: making sure we’re on the same page.
  • Screening call with Philippe, Upflow’s VP of Engineering to discuss the role and your expections.
  • Home assessment and review with two peers
  • Final round with Barnaby, cofounder & CTPO at Upflow to discuss the vision.
