About Vacuumlabs


Vacuumlabs provides design, product development, engineering, and data science services for the fintech industry.

We support over 115 clients in 20 different locations in Europe, North America, and Asia. Our 10 years history of successful collaborations includes companies at all stages of development – leading corporations, scaleups, and startups.

Focusing on banking and cryptocurrency, we explore topics in cloud banking, community banking, and blockchain technology. We’re proud of our track record of working with clients such as Standard Chartered, Twisto, Erste Group IT, Kiwi, Railsbank, Doconomy, Emurgo Innovatrics, and others.

Our engineers are one of the best engineers on the market, holding Masters and PhD degrees in computer science, winning coding competitions (Facebook Hacker Cup, Google Code Jam, ICPC, etc.), and have worked for leading tech giants.

Still not sure what we are doing? So let’s check this video out:

Who are we looking for?

In short, DevOps engineers. Yeah, we know DevOps is an approach, culture, and philosophy, not a position. But let’s be honest, it’s an eloquent job title after all 🙂

What we want to achieve with our DevOps-y approach is to get as close as possible to having all the infrastructure and its processes automated and optimized to the point nobody has to touch it anymore, but it is a Utopia.

Due to the current situation, we are only able to start the recruitment process with the candidates that are based outside Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine (or with relocation plans) with valid (or soon to be valid) working permits in any EU and non-EU countries.

What you will do:

Based on the project scope, your responsibilities can range between:

  • creation and maintenance of cloud-based infrastructure as code

  • creation and maintenance of different environments (test, development, production)

  • setup of continuous integration and deployment processes

  • setup of monitoring, network, databases, load balancing, and reporting

  • improvement of infrastructure security including access rights, encryption, and backups

  • look for new technologies and propose those that fit best the requirements

What we expect from you:

Must-have qualifications:

  • at least intermediate knowledge of some programming language – Python, Go, Rust

  • hands-on experience with containers (Docker, LXC, Podman…)

  • tangible experience with at least one cloud provider (AWS, GCP, Azure)

Preferred qualifications (Let’s be real, no one knows all of the techs & concepts mentioned above. It’s a simplified list of what you may get your hands on.):

  • knowledge of OS concepts such as sockets, virtualization, process management, signals

  • lives in terminal (prefers terminal instead of GUI, knows a bunch of tools such as awk, sed, grep, cat)

  • knows how to set up & configure web servers (any of NGINX, Apache, Tomcat, Caddy…)

  • knows what forward and reverse proxy is

  • has hands-on experience with configuration management (Ansible, Chef, Puppet)

  • has hands-on experience with container orchestration (Kubernetes, Nomad)

    • and toolchains around the tech (Helm, Kustomize, stern, kubectx, kubens)

  • has hands-on experience with infrastructure provisioning (Terraform, Pulumi)

  • has hands-on experience with CI/CD (CircleCI, GitLab CI, GitHub Actions, ArgoCD, Spinnaker)

    • (and knows the differences between the CI and CD)

What’s in it for you?

  • Take part in the success story! Great goals ahead of Vacuumlabs: grow from 300 colleagues in 2021 to 1000 colleagues in 2023 and from revenue of 10 mil EUR in 2021 to 40 mil EUR in 2023.

  • You will be working remotely for the first few months and then you may become a foundation of our current global expansion activities to set up delivery hubs in Cyprus, Asia, and Latin America regions

  • In the future, we are considering relocation or temporary work assignments around the globe!

  • Various fintech and crypto projects – from internal, clients, and spinoffs – therefore with Vacuumlabs, you don’t need to change the company in order to get new experiences, you just change the project you are working on.

  • International teams, not based in offices, 100% remote work supported.

  • No big investors are involved with the company, the growth is mostly supported by the co-founders themselves.

  • LGBTI+ and family-friendly (vacuum weekend).

  • Strong company values

    • Integrity over profit – even during difficult covid times

    • Full transparency (every great relationship is built on trust)

    • Arguments matter more than ranks (our ranks don’t matter in discussions only arguments do)

    • Greatness is worth sacrifices (there is no growth without pain, we work hard and we are proud of it)

    • We care for each other (we support each other in our growth, joy, and difficult moments alike)

  • Quarterly revaluation – we offer regular salary evaluations and provide feedback on their performance

  • Paid needed overtimes

  • One-off payment to help establish remote working space

  • Paid vacation days & unlimited sick days

  • Paid self-development

Salary Range:

Depending on the outcomes of interviewing process, the salary may vary from 2.500 euros to 6.000 euros

Next Steps:

First, you will need to undergo automated task testing fundamental principles of algorithmic thinking. The time limit is 8 hours, but it can be done faster. When you succeed, our recruiters will get in contact with you to walk you through our recruitment process.

Vacuumlabs is one of the multi-awarded companies across the globe. Join a company you can truly engage with!
