it's my job
THE JOB AT BACKBASE
As a Principal System Engineer you design things but you also build them. You're part of the development team and will help lift the product to the next level. Your day to day job will consist of working on the Infrastructure as Code for Backbase as a Service either by contributing PR's yourself or by reviewing the work of others. You'll also get a chance to actively participate on the refining of the architecture as decisions are taken by the team. For our customers that are already running in production you will also be on call (approximately once every six weeks) for which we strive to not trigger any alerts but we'd rather focus on automating responses on events that might happen.
Using your experience you assist in the delivery by being in close contact with our customers (both internal and external) and you help translate their ideas to items on the team backlog. By closely aligning with the Backbase as a Service product manager you help shape the roadmap and manage expectations on the customer's side.
Your growth path within Backbase will allow you to grow from the function of Principal System Engineer to a function as Lead Principal System Engineer in which you can coach colleagues to improve their System Engineering discipline. By coaching colleagues you'll be able to do your work at a larger scale throughout the Backbase organisation improving the system engineering discipline and our product at scale.
As part of this role you will help build our cloud presence on Azure. Next to our platform that we have running on AWS at the moment we are expanding our platform to also be deployed on Azure. By combining the learnings of our AWS platform with the new approach on Azure we are able to take our Backbase as a Service product to the next level. apply now
