The Role

As a DevOps Engineer at this industry leading Saas scale-up, you will take a lead position in their established DevOps team to ensure operational excellence in everything they do. You will build on and scale out their AWS infrastructure, bringing them further into a cloud-only microservices based architecture, and you will be spinning up numerous Kubernetes clusters week after week. You will also be responsible for implementing IaC with Terraform and using CI/CD pipelines and automated Python scripts to make the lives of the Dev teams much more efficient. In no time, you can migrate their SaaS product from hundreds of services to another region if needed. This business does not do local installations; everything is automated on their SaaS infrastructure.

Your skills are incredibly valuable, and you will be expected to share as much of your wisdom with your team and other developers as possible.

AWS, Python, Bash, Perl, Jenkins, Bamboo, Ansible, Terraform, Docker, Kubernetes, Linux, Helm, Flux, Puppet, Chef, PostgreSQL


  • Cloud experience (Preferably AWS).
  • Knowledge of one or more scripting languages (Bash, Python, Perl).
  • Experience with Infrastructure as Code tools and configuration management languages (Terraform, Puppet, Chef, Ansible).
  • You are at the forefront of the containerisation and microservices movement, always learning.
  • Ability to take initiative, work independently, lead teams and mentor other engineers.
  • You are FLUENT in Dutch, not just able to order a beer

The Company

This SaaS scale-up based in Amsterdam are on track to be market leaders by 2022. They are winning new tenders at a faster rate than ever, with all engineering teams growing exponentially, all just in time for their brand-new office at the end of this year! They have also recently acquired a number of companies within their industry and are set to acquire more this year and next because of the superiority of their platform over others!

All engineers here are constantly looking to improve and build on their skills, and any technical innovations you suggest will always be listened to. This is due to their 'holocratic' culture that would rather someone try something, fail and learn than be blocked from something because it could be risky.

As well as the exceptional salary, you are also awarded with training budgets, fresh food daily, travel allowances, pension, a strong bonus and a vibrant social culture with company holidays and plenty of beer!
