Sysadmin

Sweden's next IT-wonder is looking for an experienced system administrator to the world's most advanced decentralized database service.

 

Experienced system administrator with customer and product focus

CloudBackend is about to launch a revolutionary new decentralized database service, The Singularity Database. The service makes developers considerably more productive with all technical challenges to run, manage, and build APIs for the database in the cloud solved from the get go, while also keeping data in sync with connected clients to simplify application development. This enables any front-end developer to build the entire solution and become a full-stack developer, while removing boring and tedious tasks from full-stack developers. It is a transformative technology for web developers, mobile app developers, and IoT developers. It is a key technology to enable decentralization of data, edge computing, and the shift into using a database as a service, instead of manually installing and running a database on cloud infrastructure.

We expect launch by end of Q2 2022, why we expect efficient system administration to become critical as we will build out more and more edge nodes across the world.

The ambition of the CloudBackend team is to build a service delivered from Linköping while being used by millions of developers throughout the world. We believe there is a chance for a dbPaaS to attract some of the market share currently held by companies such as AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud – while at the same time leveraging them to deploy our service. With the shift to decentralization and edge computing, there is a chance to break the USA monopoly on cloud computing and bring it back to Europe and Sweden.

ABOUT CLOUDBACKEND

CloudBackend's The Singularity Database is a decentralized, policy-driven database that lowers latency by storing data in the cloud, in the edge and on edge units distributed. The service is completely unique and will be launched in 2022, with the intention to be used by millions of users across the world.

With CloudBackend a startup or application developer will be able to launch a global service with good performance across the globe that also meets all data regulation acts, without it requiring massive development resources. Application and web developers that normally spend a lot of time on data handling between clients and backend can now instead put those resources on improving the user experience and system functionality. CloudBackend's customers will thus be able to launch better services faster, with less resources, where they don't have to bother with mundane data plumbing, data synchronization or management of distributed databases in the cloud.

The team is virtual and distributed across Sweden, UK and Canada.
