DevOps / SRE Engineer

Job description

DevOps / Site Reliability Engineer / SRE

We’re building a more open society. Want to help?

OpenCorporates is the largest source of open company data in the world with over 200 million companies in our database. We firmly believe delivering genuine corporate transparency benefits both business and society. Our vision to become the world’s foundational and definitive source of company data.

Corporate transparency enables citizens, companies and governments to make clearer choices about who they do business with. It throttles crime, helps protect workers and our environment. It oils the wheels of prosperity, fairness and sustainability.

OpenCorporates was conceived to drive that change. We’ve worked with bodies like the World Bank and the G20 to spearhead initiatives such as the Open Company Data Index and the creation of the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation. Our expertise has shaped how the US Federal Government procures services; we have advised the European Commission on the EU Open Data Directive; and we were instrumental in the UK Companies House opening access to their company data.

Our platform dynamically captures and curates the records of over 200 million companies from 140 jurisdictions around the world — openly available information that is the foundation to sourcing, risk, compliance, and investigations processes for organisations around the world — large and small, public and private.

Our four company values outline the shared principles that define our culture and drive our success: we are bold, we are one team, we learn & adapt and we put our users first. Whether through day-to-day decision making, teamwork, supporting our clients or evaluating performance, the values are the lens we look through to help us achieve great things.
