As a Resilience Engineer within Mollie's Developer Enablement domain, you'll be instrumental in building and maintaining robust processes and systems designed to meet the highest standards of reliability and operational excellence. You will steward our production readiness, support engineers in best practices, and advocate for an improved developer experience in creating resilient services.

  • Implement and advocate for resilience patterns such as Feature Flags, Circuit Breakers, and graceful degradation, to dynamically manage system dependencies and enable safer deployment practices.

  • Identify and advocate for solutions to reduce friction in production service management, collaborating with infrastructure teams to enhance developer tools and practices.

  • Facilitate and engage in Incident Reviews and participate in cross-functional squads to address complex reliability issues. Collaborate with Chaos Engineering on game day and disaster recovery exercises.

  • Foster a culture of continuous learning and improvement, mentoring peers, and contributing to a collaborative work environment.

What you'll bring:

  • Possess around 4 years of experience with distributed systems, with a knack for quickly understanding unfamiliar services and production patterns.

  • Have prior experience facilitating Incident Reviews, root cause analysis, writing post-mortem documents for continuous improvement.

  • A strong educator at heart, experienced in teaching others or creating developer-focused documentation.

  • Good coding skills in languages relevant to our stack (e.g., PHP, Java, Python, Go), with a taste for automating manual processes to scale impact.

  • Empathetic, collaborative, with excellent verbal and written communication skills, capable of working effectively in a remote setting across teams.
