Bitonic is looking for a colleague that helps us improve, maintain and automate our IT-infrastructure and (internal) systems.

Full-time / Part-time · Amsterdam

About Bitonic

Bitonic was the first company that offered (automated) purchasing of Bitcoins via iDEAL. During the years, we have expanded our services with our own Bitcoin-exchange BL3P, a savings-service Bits and an educative and informative platform As a Bitcoin-only company, we value the privacy of our customers, so we keep as much data internal as possible. For example, we have developed an internal authentication system so that we do not have to host customer data in the public cloud.

Bitonic's organizational structure is based on the principles of Holacracy consisting of self-managing circles. This system makes a flat organizational structure which values each opinion equally. The work-culture within Bitonic offers a lot of freedom to fulfill your role in the way you think is best and gives the possibility to bring your ideas to the table and work those out.

The IT-infrastructure at Bitonic

Since Bitonic is built on IT, we have developed the firm belief and principles of keeping as much control over our own IT as possible. We are continually building our own platform(s) to run our services and systems on to keep sensitive data completely in our own control. We try to use open-source software wherever possible.

Some examples of technologies that we use:

  • Infrastructure as Code (e.g. Ansible)
  • Code forge (Gitlab)
  • Observability (e.g. Sensu)
  • Identity management/Single Sign-on (e.g. FreeIPA)
  • Hypervisors and storage clusters (e.g. Ceph)
