About BuyBay

BuyBay is a young and dynamic scale up that revolutionizes the world of return products. Returns as we like to call them are a well-known problem for e-tailers, retailers, brands and distributers, because they don’t have a way of bringing the products back to the market again. In their warehouses the products take up space and devaluate quickly. With ever growing online sales there is also an ever growing flow of returned goods. BuyBay disrupts the world of e-commerce with carefully developed software allowing the products to be sold online again. BuyBay can offer a complete solution including grading, warehousing, customer support and of course the sales or can just make sure the products are sold as soon as possible maximizing the recovery of the product.


As a Linux System Administrator you help with keeping our services running in a secure way. Our services are used both internally and externally by our partners. In your role you will ensure that our servers and networks operate as good as possible. We operate multiple Ubuntu VPS machines which are used both for production and testing by our development team (which uses Ruby on Rails and PHP). Our networks use OpenVPN to connect our warehouses to our office location in Amsterdam. You will work in close cooperation with both our operational- and our IT teams to ensure that our services continue to work in a reliable and secure way.


You have experience in administrating (Ubuntu) Linux servers and networks. You are communicative and you can operate independently. You need to be able to understand both English and Dutch. NGINX, OpenVPN, Ubuntu and shell scripting are no strangers to you. Some Ruby and/or PHP knowledge would be great, but you don’t have to be a developer.


As a Linux system administrator at BuyBay you are responsible for:

  • Inventorizing and planning general system administration of our Linux servers
  • Securing access to our servers
  • Running updates on our servers
  • Working with our IT team to optimize and coordinate software deployments to the servers
  • Working with our operational team to optimize and secure our networking infrastructure
  • Provide a helping hand with regards to day-to-day IT operations
