Site Reliability Engineer - Infrastructure (m/f/d)

At Jimdo, we’re big on small. Our mission is to unleash the power of self-employed small business owners and help them thrive. Small businesses are the backbone of the global economy, but they receive little support or recognition. We see them and are here to support them. Join us to help design intuitive tools that enable small businesses to solve complex problems.

We run at a steady pace to achieve what we aim for. We learn best by digging deep into data, staying curious, taking calculated risks, and sometimes even falling down along the way. It’s the lessons we learn in the process that make us better problem-solvers for small business owners.

If you are motivated by our mission and excited to roll up your sleeves, experiment, learn from mistakes, and make a difference to small businesses around the world, we would love to get to know you.
