At Wapice we have a long tradition of working with industrial systems which have high requirements for quality and operational reliability. Those goals apply also on our own products, such as the award-winning IoT application platform IoT-TICKET®. We work in close co-operation with our customers and the project domains can vary from IoT solutions to machine controlling systems and from sales tools to mobile applications. In addition to the project work we like to pilot new technology trends and develop our competency with internal activities.

Now we are searching candidates with special focus - performance optimization in modern high scalability microservice environments. In this thrilling assignment, you are expected to spot performance issues with tailored load testing arrangements and fearlessly hunt down the root causes and optimization possibilities both in the infrastructure, architecture and software implementations. Optimally, you have existing experience with real-time distributed data streaming with high availability requirements on cloud platforms. You are able to develop the necessary custom metrics and utilize those for scaling purposes. Whereas you are able to optimize the underlying software yourself, you also work as an advisor for the rest of the team to steer larger improvements and architecture towards high performance. In addition to the optimization assignments, you may participate to other development tasks in accordance with your skills and interests.

To make a good match with rest of the troops at Wapice, you are a customer oriented person who gets inspired by new challenges and problem solving. You continuously seek opportunities for improvement and customer happiness. It is natural for you to share information with your colleagues while proactively working with your own responsibilities.

Your positive mind set and passion for continuous development are the most important things for us. However, you need to possess existing skills for microservice architectures and the basics of software development. You are familiar with some of the following concepts:

  • Azure or other public clouds
  • Kubernetes
  • Docker
  • REST
  • HTTP
  • MQTT
  • AMQP
  • COAP
  • Kafka
  • Grafana
  • Prometheus
  • Tempo Tracing
  • Databases
  • Distributed caching
  • Java

In addition to interesting challenges, we offer you a great viewpoint to industrial software creation with professional and easy-going colleagues.
