“Hi, I’m Finke! I have been working for Catawiki for 5+ years and I keep learning a lot as I’m morphing through different iterations of our Platform team to keep up with the business requirements and the need for growth of the infrastructure. As business demands change, so must we, and the Infrastructure team is picking up the responsibility of managing the Cloud platforms we use, as well as supporting the rest of the Platform team in providing their services on top of what we built.“

Nice to have

  • Practical experience with Kafka

  • Practical experience in large distributed systems and how to ensure stability

  • Practical experience with Google Cloud or other cloud providers
