Cloud Engineer

You make our platform run smoothly

Full-time · Amersfoort

At Sqills we empower passenger transport operators around the world with a mission-critical software solution called S3 Passenger. Long story short, when our software is down, national transport operators are unable to purchase, rebook, or even scan tickets - this can bring public transport to a standstill.

This is exactly why our infrastructure team is so important to Sqills. This is the team that makes sure the necessary infrastructure is available to support S3 Passenger, to accommodate thousands of bookings per minute.

That is the reason this team is constantly innovating, always thinking of ways to make our infrastructure more efficient and scalable while also making sure not lose sight of the day-to-day

S3 Passenger runs on AWS; the product is optimised for it and the technological component and functional modules together make up the entire software suite.

Our software is complex enough, applying for a job shouldn’t be. That's why we'll only ask for a name, a phone number or email adres.
