Department: Tech

Location: Stockholm HQ

Global migration is a 21st-century reality: Whether people are fleeing from something or racing towards better opportunity, finding love, or looking to experience new cultures, people are now living side by side in a new way. At Rebtel, we believe in tearing down borders – from the geographical borders that complicate international communication and money transfers to the cultural borders that keep people divided. We’re on a mission to build products serving the 2 billion modern internationals of the world. We offer work, communication, and remittance services for anyone that has crossed a border:

Our team mirrors our global audience:  we are a diverse team of people from 20 different countries that get together everyday – and we’d love for you to join us. Do you have what it takes?


Rebtel is looking for a Devops and Infra Engineer - Telephony

About Rebtel’s telephony infrastructure

Our infrastructure is entirely cloud-based, and we have components in the 3 major cloud environments (AWS, Azure, GCP). Our telephony infrastructure is at the core of our best-in-class international calling service.

In an environment as vast as Rebtel’s, it is important to maintain thorough documentation of our systems, but even better to persist our infrastructure as code using modern tools such as Terraform. Our work approach is well structured without being stifling. We use an agile workflow to handle day to day tasks. We strongly encourage collaboration as an excellent way to spread knowledge and to deliver universally relevant products and services.

Given our fast-paced journey and market ambition, you will find tasks that are demanding and that will trigger your creativity. At Rebtel, everyone contributes to our customer propositions - we have quick communication channels between teams and have regular hackathons to respond to opportunities and challenges as they come.

Rebtel is looking for a DevOps and Infrastructure engineer who will own the telephony area of our technological stack.
