What you will do:

  • Lead an infrastructure team of around 10 highly qualified infrastructure engineers. Manage resource and people aspects of the infrastructure team.

  • Further improve our highly available, scalable, and self-healing Kubernetes infrastructure on the AWS platform.Enforce best practices and IT operations processes for a high load and high availability environment.
  • Improve our system stability by further developing our SRE capabilities.
  • Ensure repetitive work is automated.
  • Participate in business discussions in order to define a software and infrastructure target architecture which meets current and future business requirements.
  • Set up proper architecture principles and guidelines to support software delivery teams in taking architectural decisions which are in line with the target architecture.
  • Support and facilitate the process of taking architectural decisions.  

What you will need:

  • 3+ years of experience in leading/mentoring/developing/coaching people and teams.
  • Strong in mapping out a target IT infrastructure based on a business strategy.
  • Strong in defining the strategy and tactics to getting there. 4-7 years of experience as a software engineer with exposure to software operations.
  • Solid architectural skills.
  • Understanding of agile software development processes and methodologies.
  • Strong background in Linux/Unix Administration and managing container workloads.
  • Ability to use a wide variety of open source technologies and cloud services (experience with Kubernetes is required).
  • Strong experience with MySQL as well as in-memory databases.

Nice to have:

  • AWS Certified Developer - Associate or AWS Certified SysOps Administrator - Associate or Kubernetes Certified Administrator.
  • Experience with automation/configuration management using Ansible and/or Terraform.
