Adyen is looking for senior System Engineers with a focus on virtualization to join our infrastructure team in Amsterdam. You will be working on scaling out and maintaining a virtualization platform based on open source technologies. This will be the base where our in-house developed platform will land on. You love to deep dive through the internals of these components and come out the other end. Instead of just consuming technologies, you will be expected to push them.
