  • restore backups and help with disaster data recovery

  • Inspect the behavior of the tool within the log files and provide meaningful feedback to our development teams on how to optimise APIs or business processes

You will talk with tons of entrepreneurs, project managers, CFOs, and operational managers every day. You’ll see them grow and help them become more successful.

You’ll be working in a fast-paced tech environment with open feedback culture and room for initiatives as well as ideas.
