Senior DevOps Engineer

Our vision
Crypto has made everybody an investor, significantly accelerating a broader trend toward democratized, decentralized, and community-driven investments. This enables individuals to leverage their audiences to become fund managers. Imagine a world where anyone can guide investment decisions - not just big, old, and slow institutions. It's a world where investing is open to all, shaped by communities…

About us

At Presail, we make Web3 investment infrastructure. We’re on a mission to make it possible for retail investors to invest in startups that are not yet openly traded on public exchanges, and use Web3 technology to remove the barriers in traditional finance that have made venture investing inaccessible to anyone other than the rich and well-connected.

Presail was founded in 2021, originally built to help crypto investors correctly report their taxes. After working on an investor-oriented product for a while, we realised that the best way to serve the investors in the Web3 space was to make tools for the projects and the investment funds they were investing in. Today, our platform helps investment communities and projects raise funds, vest tokens, and manage their investors, in a safe and compliant way. The verdict from our customers is clear: Presail helps them stay on top of everything, it reduces scams and fraud, and it plays a crucial role in their compliance work.

We pride ourselves on making a big impact with a small team. Our team of eleven people works to deliver exceptional products and customer service that place our users in the centre. Our offices are located in Oslo, but we are a remote-friendly company that hires and works from anywhere in the world.

About the role

Title: Senior DevOps Engineer
Type: Remote
Location: Europe or US East-Coast Time Zone
Salary: Between €100.000 - 120.000/year + ESOP

We’re building an OPS team to work alongside our existing product development team. As our Senior DevOps engineer, you will be the first person in the company to work exclusively on this new team. 

We have big ambitions to distinguish ourselves as a stable and reliable actor in the often chaotic web3 space. These ambitions extend to our OPS work. 

Your primary responsibility will be to ensure our app is reliably served to our customers. Since we deliver a fundraising solution operating on the first-come-first-serve principle, where only a limited number of investors are able to invest in any given deal, we deal with large spikes in page traffic. When a popular fundraiser is about to open, thousands of investors will be waiting to enter our app at the exact same time. We combine several tools to mitigate and control the incoming traffic today, but we have not yet cracked the code to ensure we handle them without issue, every time.

Most of the time, the traffic is entirely organic, but sometimes we are targeted with DDOS attacks. Today, we mitigate these effectively using Cloudflare. We want to build a rig that can withstand these attacks, by instantly and automatically mitigating them, without our users noticing any downtime.

Another crucial responsibility for the OPS team will be ensuring that our app is secure. We want to comply with the highest industry standards, and our goal is to apply for SOC2 certification in 2024. Getting there means developing, implementing, and documenting extensive security processes that cover areas such as data processing, data retention, and disaster recovery, to name a few.

We also intend to schedule regular audits with security auditors to proactively detect and pre-empt ways to exploit us or our users. Actors of similar size in the space have become targets of attacks from sophisticated hacker groups. You won’t have to field the entire responsibility of keeping our app secure alone, but you should feel comfortable in your ability to combat and prevent common security threats.

Lastly, the OPS team will be responsible for ensuring we maintain development and test environments that are reliable and easy to use for the development and QA teams.

If you’re excited about the prospect of demonstrating your leadership skills or making your mark on a company, this will be an exciting opportunity. As the first member of a brand new team, we expect you to take on big responsibilities relatively early after joining, but you will also be given a great degree of freedom to solve problems the way you want them to be solved. You also won’t have to bear the responsibilities alone. Until we scale the OPS team with more members, you will collaborate closely with our CTO and Principal developer.

What you’ll do

Here are some examples of the challenges the Presail team has worked on recently, which fall within the OPS team’s area of responsibility.

  • Implemented Cloudflare waiting rooms to control spike traffic during popular fundraisers, as a contingency mechanism to ensure our servers aren’t completely overloaded by fundraising-related traffic spikes.
  • Implemented controls and policies in Secureframe, with the goal of becoming SOC2 compliant.
  • Set up custom domains for premium customers, and automated parts of the setup process to make it more efficient.
  • Discussed moving our servers from Heroku to AWS, along with our Postgres and Redis databases. We’re open to switching cloud providers, if you are!
  • Configured our Redis databases to ensure they are properly scaled to meet spikes in traffic
  • Responded to reports of users getting false positives from antivirus and Web3 wallet security software. Reached out to the relevant companies, and work out solutions with them to prevent further false positives.

What you’ll need

  • You’ve walked a similar path before. Meaning, you have been one of the primary people responsible for operations for a Ruby on Rails app that servers tens of thousands of users, or more
  • You feel confident in the prospect of working with AWS and Heroku
  • You’re comfortable with the occasional ad-hoc request, as well as with being available on-call outside of working hours from time to time, in the rare event of an emergency. We will rotate the responsibility.
  • You’re a decent programmer, and are capable of modifying a Ruby on Rails application when needed.
  • You have experience working with both SQL and no-SQL databases
  • Experience working with CI server setups
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills


  • Familiarity with Web3 and blockchain technology
  • Experience with other elements of our development stack
    - Redis
    - Hotwire
    - Javascript/Typescript
  • Experience with other elements in our operations stack
    - Cloudflare
    - Github Actions (CI)
