What is key to every business success? It is keeping focus on what you are best at and leave your competitors behind. Many freelancers and small business owners are forced to do everything themselves resulting in loss of focus and missed business opportunities. They can’t use their time efficiently because they get distracted by incoming calls, messages and mails or miss on opportunities because they were not able to answer that one call that would have been the next big deal.
Our powerful and constantly developing software as a service communication platform is for more than 20 years a catalyst for success in that our customers never miss an opportunity while being able to maintain focus and concentrate on their core activities.
We are a small company working in small teams. We believe that a pleasant atmosphere helps teams to be effective and creative. We are curious to hear about your ideas on how to foster that. Helping others and learning from each other is as meaningful as providing reliable systems. This will be your first challenge.
Tech-wise, our software platform is build in Java running on more than 400 Debian Servers and 600 diskless Ubuntu-Linux Clients. We are operating a SaaS telephony service platform, two data center and several international office locations. Proving reliable infrastructure and high availability is key to our overall success and your second challenge – thousands of customers rely on you. Also, our Software Engineers will benefit from your expertise about how to provide stable infrastructure, servers, REST micro-services, test and build systems.
While you need to keep the existing infrastructure running, we will work together on automating as much as possible. Managing automation projects will be your third and most important challenge. Right now, we are using Puppet, Foreman, Terraform and Ansible. You know how to get the most value from these tools? Let us know – you’re the expert!
