GrapheneDB is the first cloud hosting provider to offer Neo4j graph databases as a service. We proudly manage thousands of Neo4j database instances, catering from individual developers working on pet projects to large companies with challenging workloads and reliability requirements.

What You'll Be Doing

  • Report and solve problems within the GrapheneDB infrastructure.
  • Participate in SRE software engineering, writing code for the continuing reduction of human intervention in operational tasks and automation of processes.
  • Monitor the GrapheneDB infrastructure, responding to incidents, correcting and improving systems to prevent incidents and planning capacity.
  • Manage infrastructure, system deployments and product releases.
  • Implement and enforce security best practices at scale..
  • Write specifications for secure, robust, resilient and observable services, both centralized and distributed.
  • You will participate in 24x365 on-call schedules.


You'll bring into our team some nice skills:

  • Experience as a Linux systems engineer/administrator in the Amazon Cloud (AWS).
  • Experience deploying, managing and monitoring Docker containers at scale. We don't plan to use Kubernetes in the near future, but CoreOS seems tempting.
  • Relentless desire to automate and build tools to achieve it. We use Python/Ruby for scripting. Go is our choice for small, efficient networking tools, whereas Rust is a safer choice for our core services. You don't have to be proficient in all of them.
  • Ability to troubleshoot problems using high and low level debugging tools and techniques throughout all our stack.
  • Familiarity with "infrastructure-as-code" tools: eg. Ansible and Terraform.
  • A passion for security, observability and monitoring.

Non-essential, but desirable:

  • You have monitored and tuned the Java Virtual Machine to ensure apps run smoothly.
  • You have managed any combination of these: MongoDB, Kafka, ElasticSearch.
  • Familiarity with NGiNX
  • AWS Lambda Functions and Elastic Container Service.

Soft skills

  • You enjoy working remotely and the (over)communication it requires.
  • You have worked with Git, Github, Gitflow and are familiar with code reviews.
  • You lead a healthy lifestyle and enjoy your time outside work.

What we offer

  • Competitive salary
  • 100% remote work.
  • Numerous planned company events throughout the year.
  • Flexible working hours and a generous vacation policy.
  • Global minimum of 16 weeks of paid in full parental leave (moms & dads)
  • Budget for personal development: books, training, conferences, etc.

Application Process

  • You submit your application via our online form.
  • We review applicants, screening for a variety of criteria.
  • If you pass the screening, we will ask you to complete a small coding test.
  • We will review code test submissions and conduct calls to interview candidates based on their solutions.
  • We will make an offer to the candidate we think is the best fit.
