Are you an infrastructure guru looking to make a big impact? Have you managed event streams, topic partitioning, and brokers efficiently at scale? Do you know service meshes, autoscaling, and resource quotas inside and out?

We're searching for a motivated and experienced DevOps Engineer to kick start our team responsible for developing Unite's hybrid application and data platforms. You'll work closely with our IT Admins, Software Engineers, and IT Management team to harmonize and modernize our infrastructure and build a first-class developer experience. If you have experience working with Kafka and operating Kubernetes in both cloud (AWS) and self-hosted infrastructure, are familiar with related technologies like Helm, Istio, and Envoy, and are looking for a challenging role in a supportive company, then we would like to talk with you!

Your role

  • Accelerate delivery: You'll spearhead the design and implementation of a cutting-edge cloud-native application platform based on K8s, Kafka, and more
  • Cross-functional collaboration: You'll enable our Software Engineers to deliver reliable, scalable solutions and work in close cooperation with diverse software, data, and integration teams
  • Service orientation: You'll provide a compelling internal "product" and create a developer experience that incorporates feedback and drives adoption and evolution of the platform
  • Shape our infrastructure landscape: You'll provide architectural guidance, define best practices, and share your expertise openly within our engineering organization
  • Craftsmanship: You'll foster a security-first mindset and ensure robust and maintainable solutions

Your qualifications

  • Strong background: You have 5+ years' experience operating containerized applications, container orchestration infrastructure, and messaging systems in hybrid cloud environments
  • Hands on experience: You have been part of cloud migration or containerization initiatives and have experience with event-driven software architectures and a diverse range of CNCF projects
  • Ownership: You're proficient with DevOps tools and practices and in supporting the operation of highly-available web services
  • Self-motivated: You're goal-oriented and driven; you can work independently and manage your time effectively across multiple competing projects
  • Be on the pulse: You're committed to continuous learning and knowledge sharing; you keep up to date with the latest trends and technologies

Interested? Then apply directly.
