Do you want to be the one that is in charge of the code after it has been written? That is possible! As a Linux Engineer, you are responsible for setting up the servers. Not the oldskool way, because you will write the infrastructure as code and because of that you will have a lot of freedom.

Do you want to be the one that is in charge of the code after it has been written? That is possible! As a Linux Engineer, you are responsible for setting up the servers. Not the oldskool way, because you will write the infrastructure as code and because of that you will have a lot of freedom.

You will work in the Cloud and automate processes through scripting. Besides setting up new servers, you are also responsible for the deploys. Furthermore, you will monitor the existing servers and keep them up and running. One of your other tasks is the configuration of our AWS services. During this all you will work closely with the developers within Label A.

A Linux Engineer at Label A has a really divers role, with a lot of different tasks. In short: you help to keep everything running smoothly! 



Who We Roll For

Everything make must simply work well, be reliable and look fancy. You’ll play an important role in this process. We only build great things for clients that make us ‘wow’. This could be clients with a rich audience, such as Porsche, Greenwheels, Nuon, Coca-Cola, Philips and Apollo Hotels, but also small start-ups that impress us.

Besides that, we don’t simply build what the clients asks us to. If we think an idea is dull, we’ll put our heads together to improve it. Our projects need to be challenging and we should be proud of what we have build when it ends. Only then you get passionated colleagues.


Your specs

 Do you see it as a challenge to set up and automate processes so that as few problems as possible arise?

What we are looking for:

  • You have experience with a similar function
  • You have an affinity with Open Source Software
  • You have experience with managing Linux servers (Ubuntu)
  • You are business sensitive which makes it possible to use the techniques the right way
  • You consider improving the Monitoring Systems a challenge
  • You have experience with Bash scripting and Puppet/Ansible
  • You are always alert and do not mind sometimes working in the evening or weekend so that you can intervene in incidents

It is a bonus if you have experience with:

  • Python
  • Apache / WSGI
  • AWS services (Terraform)
  • MacOS

How We Roll

A picture says more than a thousand words, but a video says even more. Of course, we work hard. We build cool things, absolutely. But we also make time for other fun activities, such as:

  • Hackathons
  • Dev Days
  • Workshops and theme months
  • Game things (in our game corner)
  • Going out together
  • Sporting days
  • Weekend trips (Barcelona!)
  • Weekly meetings to get up to date on the newest techniques and project


And if you come up with something yourself, you’ll always find people that will join you. Everyone is part of the Label A family and you’re part of that as well. We’re there for each other. Why work 4 hours extra to finish the job if you could finish it on time with the 4 of you. We don’t have managers or directors so you can think and act freely (and you don’t have to account for a non-technical management, makes sense right?)

The Team

70+ developers and designers, spread out over two offices in Amsterdam and Rotterdam. A quite mixed group of people with hobbies that lie lightyears away from each other. And that’s what we like. We are your colleagues -front-end developers, back-end developers, mobile developers and designers- with whom you’ll be working with, with whom you’ll be building astonishing Android apps and with whom you’ll be spending 8 hours a day together. This makes it even more important that you’ll feel like home. And believe it or not, you will!
