DevOps / Site Reliability Engineer (m/f) for FinReach

Berlin, Germany

We’re FinReach, a Berlin-based FinTech startup within the FinLeap group, focused on enabling excellence in retail banking through Software-as-a-Service solutions. Our first product line allows end customers to effortlessly change from their old bank accounts to a new one with just a few clicks. We’ve already gained great traction in Germany, Austria and Spain, where +500 banks use our solutions and 100,000+ accounts were switched with our products. We are about to launch our third product and are now increasing efforts to expand our geographical reach into new markets whilst further developing our product portfolio.

The technical stack consists of several services which are written in Java, Ruby, Python and Clojure. They communicate via HTTP and data is stored in MongoDB, MySQL, and Elasticsearch. Our frontends are based on React.js and Angular.js. The services are running in Docker containers in a private data center for high security. Deployments are orchestrated with Ansible and Rundeck, and we are looking forward to moving to Kubernetes. We use GitHub for source control and Travis CI for continuous integration. The development process is in Scrum-based with 2-weeks sprints.
