UNLOCKING THE EDGE

Any industry. Any system. Any process.

DevOps Engineer

As DevOps Engineer you will be responsible to build, deploy, manage, and support all the cloud based software using the latest automation, virtualization, and containerization technologies. You will require all your skills in Windows, Linux, and networks; together with deep experience in automation- and containerization tools to ensure that software is consciously deployed with minimal disruption to Production systems.

You will be managing and monitoring all installed systems and infrastructure. Once a computer system is deployed, the DevOps engineer is there to keep it running. By providing technical support to the users of the system, DevOps engineers fix issues when they arise and mitigate problems that can’t be quickly solved, to keep everything going smoothly. As the system expands and develops, the DevOps engineer will also ensure that the growth is handled in a way that will lead to the fewest hassles.
