Job Description

In your role as Senior DevOps Engineer you believe in rigorous automation of the whole software development and deployment cycle. You want the best environment for developers and testers and make the path to production super smooth. You hate waste and therefore strive to use all automation investments in the engineering and production environment as this also lowers risks: engineering uses the same automation as is used in production. You are a pragmatic engineer as you want to stand on the shoulders of industry giants. This means you understand and are capable of selecting the right tools/frameworks for the job. This way you deliver value and quality quickly.



You truly believe Agile/Scrum is the development methodology. In your mind continuous integration and continuous delivery are key concepts to organize an engineering department and you have all the tools in your tool box to execute this. You feel comfortable and are not religious on Windows or Linux, these are tools to automate the world around you. In your role you will be an integral part of the development team: you participate in user story writing/analysis and execution by bringing your industry experience (at least 4 years) and infrastructure perspective in the development cycle. You are able to make sure wheels are not reinvented: you care about fast and quality results. A team player is who you are at heart, you get energized by working in a team and getting results as a team.
