Fulltime | 32 - 40 h/w | hbo/wo level | Headquarters Groningen

Be the driving force behind our growth

A fast release cycle has several specific challenges such as confidence in good code thanks to an extensive release line, a good system to launch multiple releases per day, dependency management, and more! But what use are releases if the system doesn't work? So, system availability, high availability, and optimal use of our resources also fall within the work area of our 'DevOps' team.

What does our server management look like?

Our database runs in a baremetal Galera cluster, most services are hosted in VMs on our Proxmox clusters, elasticsearch functions as a search backbone and as cache we use Redis and KeyDB. Just a few of the techniques. Your responsibilities could also include monitoring, resource management, performance profiling, managing the CI (unit testing, static analysis, security checks and more) and everything that comes with it. With such a diverse environment, the proactive search for improvement is very important. Another important aspect is how everything comes together: how do our developers know what the impact of changes will be on a local docker environment?
