About Quix

At Quix, we believe that the next data revolution will be fueled by always-on data streams from IoT, Industry 4.0 and 5G devices.

This revolution will be led by developers who’ll create new products, services and experiences by leveraging the power of data streaming and real-time data processing.

That’s why we’ve made our mission to help developers build streaming applications faster.

We are looking for a creative site reliability engineer to help build our platform.

Quix is an end-to-end platform that enables developers to stream huge volumes of time-series data, events and metadata, and process those streams with nanosecond precision, without wasting time and resources building complex infrastructure.

The successful candidate will join a highly driven, multi-disciplinary team of creatives and technologists. Led by four founders with a high-performance background in F1 racing and deep expertise in real-time data technologies, Quix operates a remote-first culture with people based across the UK, Spain, Czech Republic and Singapore.

Role

As a Site Reliability Engineer you will help deliver and scale a platform that developers love to use.

You will spend your day collaborating with our engineers to scale the Quix portal and drive our transition to have multi-region and multi-cloud availability.

As a passionate technologist, you’ll be able to contribute to discussions across the stack to ensure the best outcome.

Join us and bring your passion.
