Only considering candidates eligible to work in Europe ⚠️

We're looking for a devops-focused engineer to help protect the internet in a human and privacy-friendly way.

About Friendly Captcha

Friendly Captcha offers bot protection which is privacy-friendly and does not require the user to perform tasks such as clicking images of cars, making it accessible to all humans.

Bootstrapped Founded in 2020, Friendly Captcha is a fully bootstrapped, profitable, growing business.

We are a mission-driven business first, and a fast-growth startup second.

We don't have the distracting goal of pleasing investors.

Vision A safe internet accessible for all humans.

Human-first We aim for sustainability, with a healthy work-life balance. We design our company to be around in 5 years.

About the Role

At Friendly Captcha we're looking for a versatile DevOps engineer to join our team.

The ideal candidate should have multiple years of experience building cloud infrastructure using modern best practices and tooling (IaC, GitOps, etc.). We are very much looking for someone who likes to design, iterate, learn and build - not only maintain.

Other than many larger companies, we don't have a separate platform team. We believe that the product informs the infrastructure, and also the other way around - not creating boundaries between these areas can be a strength of smaller companies.

A solid understanding of Linux, Docker, networking, and security is useful, and you should already be productive programming in Go.

Buzzwords aside, we value pragmatic, creative, and driven technology generalists, who know how to pick the right tool for the job.

Our engineering team is remote across Europe, consisting of 5 people. We're looking to grow the engineering team by one or two new team members over this calendar year.

Freedom and Trust

We aim for sustainability, with a healthy work-life balance. We believe that creative and talented individuals are self-organizing - you get the freedom to shape your work and time how you work best.

Our stack Some key technologies in our stack are Linux, Go, Typescript, Postgres, Clickhouse, Redis, Terraform, and OpenTelemetry.

We see engineering as a way to build a great product, not as a goal in itself.

Unique for our company is that we offer an entirely EU-owned stack (so no AWS here). This is a big selling point for governments and EU companies.


Roles grow and evolve, especially in young companies. We look for those who enjoy learning new things and are not afraid to take ownership as they grow with the company.


Do you want to join our team? Then we'd love to hear from you!
