DevOps Engineer

Eindhoven, Noord-Brabant, NetherlandsIT

Job description

Location: Eindhoven, campus of Eindhoven University of Technology

Hours per week: Full-time [40h]

Think and work level: HBO or Academic | Computer Science

Do you enjoy optimizing infrastructure, ensuring security, ease of management and availability? We are looking for someone to further improve our DevOps process across all projects. Join our team of like-minded enthusiasts in bringing our Wolfpack projects to the next level!

As a DevOps engineer you are the wolf within the pack that helps to implement the best DevOps setup per project. Often you’re intensively involved in the beginning of new projects and you’ll be advising along the way. You’ll work with developers, project managers and sometimes clients.

What you tell your friends you do:

“As a DevOps engineer I have an overview of the development, testing, deployment and monitoring processes within Wolfpack. I usually start my mornings with checking server monitoring alerts in Grafana (InfluxDB powered) and application alerting in Sentry. Next I’ve a two hour sit-down with a team starting a new project to discuss the favorable setup. Since we were not completely sure if we need automated vulnerability scanning (i.e. Fossa), I spend an hour diving into some alternatives after having lunch with my colleagues. By the way I should discuss with the Head of Projects if we embed vulnerability scanning as a default in projects. Afterwards I explain to a new colleague how we structured our DigitalOcean automated deployments, before finally grabbing a beer and calling it a day!”

But wait… what does that mean, day-to-day?

  • Helping the different development teams to setup and improve their CI/CD setup;

  • Responsible for maintaining and improving our cloud setup; We use both Azure and DigitalOcean.

  • Work on automating as much of our development and hosting setup as humanly possible, working towards that elusive recovery can happen with the push of a button;

  • Optimize our deployment and testing infrastructure to minimize time to release by collaborating with other development teams; We use Azure DevOps and Gitlab in most projects.

  • Ensuring backups and disaster recovery are available and tested;

  • Ensuring data security and integrity within our entire cloud setup;

  • Helping your colleagues in the development teams to develop their applications in such a way that hosting them is easy;

  • Expand our monitoring and reporting setup to find problems in both development and production as early as possible;

  • Expand our audit logging to provide a paper trail for all data access and usage to ensure correct usage of data.

How do you do that?

  • You are always eager to learn new skills and have new challenges to sink your teeth into;

  • You are excited to talk to fellow developers and stakeholders about what is holding them back and can unblock them;

  • You are driven and have a strong sense of responsibility;

  • You are open, convincing and clear in your communication;

  • You bring calmness to a team, by taking the scary part out of production environments.

  • You keep track of relevant emerging technologies in your field.

Our most used tech stack and tools:

  • Microsoft Azure;

  • Azure DevOps;

  • Kubernetes;

  • Docker;

  • Serverless cloud functions;

  • Sentry;

  • SQL Server;

  • Google Cloud Platform (for mobile);

  • Kibana;

  • Grafana;

  • Splunk.

Note: This list is not a mandatory requirement, since we expect you to guide us in selecting the best tools to use.
