Over deze vacature

We are looking for someone who is able to help use develop automation around privilege access management. This automation will use a database to store the truth of the environment, which has to be reflected in the infrastructure. This infrastructure mostly consists of Redhat Linux systems, NetApp storage systems and AWS native storage, both on-premise as in the AWS cloud.


We are looking for someone with a site reliability engineering mindset that has very good software development skills, and not for a sysadmin that has sometimes written a script. They have to develop the automation tooling in CI/CD pipeline with proper testing. The automation needs to be developed with a design for failure mindset, where the unexpected is to be expected. It is better to fail the execution for inspection than to continue in destruction. The software also needs to be deployed in various environments, so documentation and readability are also key as well as a structured setup.
