Job Title

Site Reliability Engineer/DevOps

Job Description

Start date: according to mutual agreement (approx. June/July 2017) Location: Australia, Switzerland or UK

The prospect of working as part of a team to advance the Divio Cloud platform makes your heart beat faster. As our Site Reliability Engineer/DevOps, the overall performance and reliability of the cloud infrastructure will be in your hands and with it the responsibility for all aspects of security, stability, performance and cost-effectiveness of the platform and its related components.

You’ll participate in product meetings and consult with the team on priorities. As an experienced Engineer you’ve mastered professional programming skills, and you produce fully functional programs writing clean, tested code. Your output is of a very high standard, which means you have checked, tested and reviewed your own work, and you are aware of the unpredictable.

In close collaboration with the team you’ll create robust solutions that follow security principles. You’re able to work independently, to manage and monitor your own work, and understand the value of going the extra mile in your work. Together with the team, you’ll manage the entire software development life cycle, end to end and you’ll swiftly answer queries from clients with prioritised support contracts. Since you strongly care about results, you deliver your work and achieve your objectives within the given time and budget.

Your proactive nature makes it easy for you to anticipate problems and communicate any risks at an early stage. As a Site Reliability Engineer/DevOps you act wisely and with foresight, you think entrepreneurially, make accurate estimations, and assess the consequences of your actions thoroughly.

If you’re looking for a challenging cloud platform to work on and a position that offers true responsibilities and a great team to be a part of, then this is the perfect place for you.
