Your are a highly skilled DevOps Engineer with a strong expertise in Kubernetes and a passion for coding, fascinated by cloud computing and paving the way for others at scale. With this mindset, you are an ideal fit for us!

What you move?

With your experience in the network area, you know how these services work together perfectly.

As a DevOps engineer, you embrace Infrastructure as Code and write complex test cases, preferably with robotframework, to make sure that our delivery meet our high customer expectations. With your proven expertise in the field of Kubernetes and EKS in particular, you complement the team optimally.
