Vacancy: Lead DevOps Engineer

Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands

Skills: AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, Jenkins, Ansible, Terraform, Golang, Java, PHP, Linux

Salary: €75,000 - €90,000 + Bonus, holiday allowance, pension

The Role

This business has adopted cloud native as their only approach for all projects and products they build, allowing them to release faster internationally without being weighed down with old tech and maintenance. They now want an experienced engineer to scale out their cloud platform and features and to ensure all applications are formed properly cloud native. You will implement infrastructure as code, moving their architecture further into a microservices based architecture, hosted in a containerised way, and enable the development team to continuously deploy new features by programming automated tools and building pipelines. Alongside the Head of Development, you will lead the activities of the development teams, guiding their DevOps approach whilst similarly mentoring engineers and reviewing their Golang code.

Your team in Amsterdam are fortunate to have the most exciting role within the business, developing, developing, developing! The majority of your time will be spent on greenfield projects, building new products and features with total freedom and autonomy. All engineers are able and encouraged to bring new ideas, invent prototypes and suggest new technologies by bringing your self-study into your real working life. On Friday's, all engineers take time to sit down and collaborate on concepts and suggest new ideas, with any idea being listened to and tried out, breeding innovation time and time again.

They are looking for someone to take ownership, control and direction of the projects at this business and lead the other Engineers further into the future. Your role will be the most pivotal in the whole IT team, so you need to be an autonomous and driven being.

AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, Jenkins, Ansible, Terraform, Golang, Java, PHP, Linux

Role Requirements:

  • Cloud experience (AWS)
  • Container experience (Docker)
  • Experience building Kubernetes clusters
  • Infrastructure as code experience (Terraform)
  • CI/CD (Jenkins, Bitbucket)
  • Strong with at least one development language, preferably Golang
  • Agile Development mindset and tools (Scrum, Kanban, Jira)

The Company

Their innovative products drive further innovation and they are always looking to maximise their product offering. One recent application they built required them to review large amounts of Big Data in a Machine Learning project for automatic yielding and because of this, they were then able to offer their insights and analytics as a further product offering to their ever-growing base of happy customers.

As industry leaders in their market (with 1 in 8 people in the Netherlands as users) and now present in 4 countries across the world, their 2021 expansion roadmap will see this grow by another 10 countries and majorly expanding their customer base, and in turn, their engineering teams, and so a strong Lead DevOps Engineer now will be crucial for this expansion.

Their international teams work hard, think smart and move at a fast pace to keep up with their success and ever-growing demand. They are agile and work with structured methods, with a continuous evolution of product features and technologies being applied. Everybody takes pride and ownership of their work, striving to get the best out of one another, one specialist to another, with collaboration at the core of everything they do.

On top of your salary, you will be rewarded with a bonus, 25 days holiday, pension, freshly prepared lunch every day, time to dedicate to personal projects, involvement in the local tech community and meet ups, speakers coming in to the main office, company trips away and regular socials and drinks on a Friday afternoon!
