Site Reliability Engineer

Amsterdam, Noord-Holland

With a strong background in software, infrastructure, or as a system engineer you are used to working in close collaboration with your team members to improve the overall reliability and resilience of the environment.

Our mission

Building Europe’s most valuable open data money platform. How? With our two strong and proven brands…


Our YTS Platform

Yolt Technology Services (YTS) is the leading open banking provider in Europe, building, managing, and maintaining AIS and PIS connections for top financial institutions and ambitious tech businesses. In January 2018, we became the first-ever Third-Party Provider to successfully make an open banking API call. Just over two years later, we have now made more than 1 billion API calls, accounting for 50% of all traffic.


Our Yolt App

Yolt is a multi-award-winning app that makes managing money, easy. At the forefront of innovation enabled by PSD2 and powered by open banking technology, our smart thinking money app gives users a clear overview of their connected bank accounts, credit cards, and spending together in one place.

We've recently launched a series of innovative features designed to help people spend smart and save through small tweaks to their daily routines and easy automatic actions within the app.


What we’re looking for

We’re after enthusiastic, driven individuals who want to want to contribute to our journey and grow with us along the way. Can you hit the ground running? Do you have the drive to go faster? Fintech is fast-paced, but we always remember to switch off too.

Our Infrastructure team

The team delivers the tools for other engineers to bring software to production faster, safer, and with fewer errors. On top of that, the team creates the building blocks that are needed to monitor the overall performance and reliability of our system. The level of expertise and experience within the team is very high which creates an energetic atmosphere. We don't forget to have some fun while developing the proposition!

What you’ll be doing

With a strong background in software, infrastructure, or as a system engineer you are used to working in close collaboration with your team members to improve the overall reliability and resilience of the environment.

Our stack consists of Cassandra, Kafka, and Spark. Our development and test environment runs on AWS as the main cloud provider experience (using terraform). You’ll operate as an expert on the command line and work on optimizing the overall performance and availability of the environment.

You‘ll work on process automatization, so the other teams can get work done faster, with better monitoring. For monitoring, we use the ELK stack and make use of Prometheus.

In the event that things do go wrong (we are all human!) you perform root cause analysis and contribute to restoring service as fast as possible. More importantly, you work actively to prevent the problem from occurring again and support all our infra colleagues.

Furthermore, you are eager to learn and use (new) technologies and you are on the lookout for new tools that could help us achieve our goals, but you always keep the availability as the top priority.
