Working to solve our climate crisis is the most important mission of our time, and the most exciting problem to be working on in tech. If you want to have a real impact, come join our talented, passionate team. Our company is based in Amsterdam but we work remotely, with people living all over Western Europe and in the U.S. 

Overstory’s mission is to help solve our climate crisis by providing real-time intelligence about the planet’s vegetation. In our first step toward this mission, we are applying machine learning to satellite imagery to track forests and vegetation, helping to reduce the risk of wildfires and power outages. We just raised a round of funding, led by Moxxie Ventures and Capital T. Other investors include: Pale Blue Dot, Omidyar Technology Ventures, Toba Capital, Overwater Ventures, Climate Capital and Techstars. With a dozen paying clients, we have already proven our business model and we’re all united behind our ambitious vision to scale up this model to help humanity and the planet.

We are a remote-first company: we have an office in Amsterdam, but our team is distributed across Europe (Amsterdam, Lisbon, London, Milan, The Hague). Ideally, you’re in a time zone +/- 1 hour from CET.

About the role

We are looking for a Senior Devops Engineer who is a creative, but pragmatic, problem-solver. You’ll spend most of your time working autonomously or within a small team, building and improving our cloud based infrastructure. This work will involve the continued development of our infra-as-code cloud technology, maintaining our Kubernetes and Dask and other computation clusters. As well as support our AI-technology stack, and making sure out cloud infrastructure is scalable and up to date. You will have responsibility for your own projects, and we’ll expect you to take initiative to help us improve overall.

Requirements

  • You have at least 4 years of experience as a DevOps, or Infrastructure Engineer.
  • You have advanced experience in container based technologies (Kubernetes, Docker) and Parallel execution engines (Dagster, Argo, Airflow, Dask)
  • You have experience and enjoy mentoring engineers.

Nice-to-haves

  • You have worked with satellite data and/or imagery.
  • You are familiar with data pipelines, event queues (e.g. through use of RabbitMQ, ZeroMQ, or Redis), and AI-ops processes (e.g. CICD for machine learning)
  • Familiar with the Pangeo stack (Primarily Jupyter Hub, Dask, Xarray, Zarr, and HDF5 file formats)

About you

  • You are creative and curious.
  • You are pragmatic, you know when a simple solution is sufficient or when new model development is required.
  • Your work is thorough and you pay attention to both the small details and the larger picture.
  • Teamwork is at your core, and you like to help others grow and succeed.

About our team

We’re a group of 19 people from all over the world (Netherlands, Portugal, Italy, US, France, Russia). We’re all united behind a big vision to help humanity and the planet. We all work remotely, and occasionally (optionally!) meet for in-person collaboration. 

What you get

  • Generous stock options and competitive salary.
  • To be a part of truly mission-driven work that reduces wildfires, protects earth’s natural resources, and reverses climate change.
  • Flexible working environment with a lot of autonomy. We build our work days around our lives, not the other way around.
  • The chance to build something from scratch and put your mark on it. Creating a product that solves real climate-related problems — one that is fast and a joy to use — is the exciting opportunity.
  • To be surrounded by an excellent, vibrant, smart team who have each other's back and believe in a culture of openness, tolerance, and respect.

Diversity & Inclusion

We place enormous value on diversity and inclusion with regards to gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, age, education, disability, disciplines and skillsets. We believe that the best ideas emerge when people with different perspectives and approaches work together on a problem.

We’re always looking to diversify our team further, but we’re proud of the fact that four out of the six people on our leadership team are female or non-white males, 38% of the overall team identifies as female and 25% of the team are people of color. Eight nationalities are represented in our team, and we speak eight languages: English, Dutch, French, Italian, Indonesian, Portuguese, Cantonese and Russian.
