Job description

Our inhouse container platform is enabling our software developers to grow into the next generation of automation, building and deployment of applications and services. We’re constantly improving towards using CI/CD, Infrastructure-as-Code and Kubernetes to improve the build quality and iteration speed of our machine software and business applications. We’re working at the intersection of Infrastructure and software development.

As a DevOps engineer in our team you will be:

  • Empowered to make autonomous decisions with your team, and challenge your product owner, to maintain a healthy balance between state-of-the-art technology, security, performance, and stability

At this moment we are focused on on-prem deployments, but our cloud native development approach will help us with our plans to become a hybrid platform (On-prem, Azure & GCP) 

Your responsibilities

  • Design and implement the platform services with the team
  • Automated tests accompany every delivery
  • Make the platform reliable by improving system resilience (bug-fixing and beyond)
  • Consultancy towards application developers to enable them to adopt and use the platform to its full potential
