  • You possess a high level of critical thinking ability and are able to exercise sound judgment on-the-fly without slowing down the work process.
  • You care deeply about the quality of the work that you put out and how it reflects upon the company’s image and overall reputation.
  • You’re worked in public relations or content marketing before and are well familiar with the day-to-day activities of people in the field.
  • You understand that Wanderu is a startup with a small team and you don’t mind having to take on additional tasks sometimes to help your co-workers achieve a common goal.

Roles & responsibilities:

  • Ownership of systems for cloud management, deployment, scraping, auto-scaling, validation and redundancy.
  • Collaborate with development for load testing and validation.
  • Responsible for the continuous deployment of the SaaS platform, including performance testing, validation and analysis.
