Infrastructure Engineer - DevOps (Open to full remote)

  • Contract Type: Full-Time
  • Location: Paris, France (75018)


BackMarket is the number one European (and soon global) marketplace specializing in the sale of fully refurbished tech devices.

Job Description

Back Market is the #1 marketplace for refurbished electronic devices in Europe and in the US, leading the way in a shift towards a circular economy, freeing the planet from electronic waste. We are proud to sabotage ‘new’ by connecting highly certified professionals to consumers who are looking for a more affordable, reliable and an ecological alternative to purchasing brand new products.  

Back Market is undergoing meteoric growth and has raised over 884M€ already! We have the objective of reaching 1000 Back Makers by the end of 2022! We are thrilled to have an inclusive, fulfilling and caring work environment in all our offices (Paris, Bordeaux, Berlin, Barcelona & New-York). This is an opportunity for you to join a talented, humble and passionate team at the heart of innovation : the Bureau Of Technology

Be a part of the movement. Join the refurb revolution.

The Infrastructure team is made of 6 people based in Paris but also in other cities in France that come from various horizons and have diverse skills and backgrounds. We provide a robust and scalable infrastructure to host services developed by the Bureau of Technology, and monitor to ensure system health. We strive to always improve the platform stability, performance and security, and to provide the best developer experience while keeping costs under control.

As an Infrastructure Engineer you will be in charge of building and running the infrastructure that support Back Market websites in Europe, America and Asia. You’ll be using Infrastructure as Code tools like TerraForm, and immutability patterns to provide resilience and elasticity to the Kubernetes clusters running in the AWS/GCP clouds. Part of the Platform Tribe, the infrastructure team works closely with developers to provide tools and processes they need to build and run new features while promoting the DevOps culture, like Continuous Deployment.

Your work will have diverse aspects: among other things you’ll be able to lead or to be part of working groups to brainstorm, compare, test, propose, decide, implement and run new projects that are part of the roadmap we define together for each quarter. We are looking for people passionate about technology, but who also aim to make the best choices based on the business needs they intend to cover. We strongly believe that while we could build complex solutions, we’d rather build solutions that are appropriate and as simple as they can be, and therefore deliverable, reliable and maintainable. We can always add more complexity later on if needed.

As another key part of the job of an Infrastructure Engineer is to ensure things are running smoothly, you’ll rotate once a week to check alerts and answer requests our developers may have. You’ll do your best to keep the volume of requests and alerts to their minimum levels by automating as much as possible, providing documentation and training to developers, and proposing any enhancement you think can be relevant. You’ll be encouraged to take a step backwards and think about the global picture, and communicate with others to share your ideas, as we value everyone’s perspective.

You’ll also take part to on-call rotations to ensure the websites are running as expected, and report incidents to our incident tracking to prevent them from becoming problems.
