DevOps Engineer
Rotterdam, fulltime, ASAP

Be part of our journey and bring our development process, infrastructure and engineering practices to the next level
As our System Engineer you will be the one leading critical platform development efforts. What you’ll actually be contributing to? Our core product, the Job Marketing Platform (JMP). It’s a data-driven application with a recommendation engine that is advising recruiters how they should reach their target audience online.

We have an ambitious roadmap for the upcoming period. Your part in the process? We will start to utilise a number of various DevOps practices - and that’s where you come in!

You will be part of an international and experienced Engineering department consisting of Backend and Frontend Developers, Data Engineers, an Agile Coach and a CTO.

Your day-to-day job in a nutshell as VONQ’s DevOps Engineer

  • Make fully functional environments available on demand for the development team
  • Provide guidance and support on application architecture as we move to a container based architecture
  • Ensure a smooth flow of work for all of our development teams
  • Enable fast clear feedback for our development team (and the wider business) on application changes, by providing clear logging, metrics and supporting the team's automated testing infrastructure
  • You'll work autonomously to make our architectural and business goals a reality

Great understanding of DevOps practices and an Agile mindset, that is you!
This describes the ideal candidate, but above all we value people that are eager to grow, autonomous, work together, and love to get things done! Furthermore we think you need:

  • 3+ years relevant experience
  • Excellent communication skills in English
  • Experience working in application development, systems or IT operations
  • Experience with Cloud and container technologies (e.g. AWS, docker, rocket)
  • Great understanding DevOps practices and why to use them (e.g. CI,CD, Infrastructure as code, automated testing)
  • You can develop an array of tools using various programming languages (e.g. Golang, Python, PHP, Scala)
  • Experience with at least some of our middleware and databases: NGINX, Elasticsearch, RabbitMQ, MySQL, Mongo
  • Experience in contributing to the systems architecture of a company

Last but not least, you are not afraid to get your hands dirty on older infrastructure, to maintain it and migrate it to the new environment.

Bonus points!

  • Experience with application development (e.g. PHP, Scala, Ruby, Golang)
  • Experience with data engineering (e.g. spark, scala, databricks)
  • Worked as part of a distributed (or international) team

This is why you should join our team
We promise that at VONQ you’ll never stop learning! You’ll be surrounded by international and experienced colleagues, so prepare yourself for some interesting and intellectual conversations.
Our product has still a lot of potential to grow, and YOU can make impact on that. You’ll get freedom and space for own initiatives, in fact, we encourage you!

We have legendary company outing, beers on Friday and lots of FUN!
