What is Kittl?

Kittl isn't just another design platform; we're here to transform the way creators work. Since day one, our mission has been clear: make designing easy and intuitive and present a real competitor to cumbersome professional-grade tools. Kittl has already attracted over 1 million users and facilitated the creation of more than 10 million designs.

Our growth relies on two things: our talented team and our relentless focus on execution. Our diverse crew of 30+ from 12+ countries drives our global impact. As we expand, we're searching for smart minds who love crafting great products, rethinking norms, and simplifying complexity. Join one of the hottest start-ups in graphic design and enjoy a very open, transparent, and performance-driven company culture with a fast and agile development cycle.

What you'll do

  • Design, implement, and maintain scalable infrastructure, leveraging the power of AWS services and modern IaC solutions to meet our growing needs

  • Establish and enhance CI/CD pipelines, automating the build, test, and deployment processes for our applications

  • Implement and improve monitoring on our services so we can track and better understand them and predict performance issues and bottlenecks

  • Collaborate with development teams to ensure smooth integration of infrastructure changes into the development lifecycle

  • Prevent incidents and, if they do occur, ensure minimal impact and timely resolution

  • Experience setting up CI/CD pipelines (using Github Actions or similar)
  • You can code in Typescript
  • Eager to tackle issues at their core, even when they are obscured by multiple layers of complexity and abstraction

  • Mobility benefit: monthly public transport (BVG) ticket fully covered by the company
  • 30 vacation days per year for all employees

  • You'll be working with a truly product-led company with PM's, engineers and designers at the heart of the company
  • We’re a well-equipped start-up that recently raised its Series A round, can get all the tech equipment you need!
  • We have a hybrid setup with office and work-from-home days so that we can foster a nice culture and in-person collaboration when needed
