A word from our fans, the reason why we do what we do.

Your mission

As a Systems Engineer you’ll be part of a small and dedicated IT team. Your primary objective will be to ensure that the Paradox infrastructure and systems run smoothly, remain secure, and are continually improved.

You will be responsible for architecting, scaling, and securing our existing and future IT platforms. You will help, as well as form and implement a cloud migration strategy for our internal tools and applications.

You will be trusted to take ownership of the entire lifecycle surrounding our internal systems and infrastructure, and ensure that they are maintained in an efficient and secure manner, as well as keeping yourself and others up-to-date with new features and implementations. You may also take part in internal projects together with other departments based on their requests and established needs. Lastly, you will lead and/or assist in contract negotiations for key systems and services.

Other responsibilities include capacity planning, configuration management, logging and monitoring, and proactively maintaining, documenting, and updating our core services and infrastructure In addition, you will be supporting our colleagues as a subject matter expert in your area as well as contributing to the future IT infrastructure landscape.

The skills we’re searching for…

  • Cloud-based infrastructure (AWS, Azure)

  • Demonstrable experience in migrating on-premises environments to the cloud or managing hybrid environments

  • Working knowledge of IAM and SSO solutions

  • Routine automation by programming/scripting languages (Python, Bash, Powershell)

Having said that, your day-to-day tasks are yours alone and we hope that you appreciate our independent work structure. You will be expected to take initiative and work proactively to ensure smooth IT deliveries, while analyzing long-term solutions over quick fixes. There are many memes about IT, but only some that are true. However, if you enjoy creating structure from chaos you’ve come to the right place.
