Senior DevOps Engineer

Amsterdam - Ecosystem

Senior DevOps Engineer

As a Senior System Engineer(DevOps) for the connectivity platform you’ll get a chance to contribute to building an enterprise-grade SaaS platform (Backbase as a Service) from scratch and maintaining it. As part of the BaaS team, you'll be expected to lay down the foundation of a highly secure, robust platform and related processes to ensure our software runs smoothly in production as well as making sure it complies with industry standards.

What you'll do

The Backbase as a Service tribe is continuously busy with improving their product with the motto "You build it, you run it". Striving to have the highest possible uptime, great performance and best in class levels of security. That's quite an ambition and you can't get there without an automation first approach. We pride ourselves on the fact that we don't do manual changes in production and that we automatically validate our environment before deploying.
As a Senior System Engineer you design things but you also build them. You're part of the development team and will help lift the product to the next level. Your day to day job will consist of working on the Infrastructure as Code for Backbase as a Service either by contributing PR's yourself or by reviewing the work of others. You'll also get a chance to actively participate in the refining of the architecture as decisions are taken by the team. For our customers that are already running in production you will also be on call (approximately once every six weeks) for which we strive to not trigger any alerts but we'd rather focus on automating responses on events that might happen.
Your growth path within Backbase will allow you to grow from the function of Senior System Engineer to a function as Principal System Engineer in which you will be responsible for driving cross team initiatives and you will take on more responsibilities in the overall design of the product.
As part of this role you will help build our API platform and iPaaS offering on Azure.

Who you are

● You have a background in programming, preferably with a few years working experience as a developer
● You're not afraid to use CLI based tooling and you have experience in maintaining and troubleshooting Linux based operating systems
● You don't want to just report the problems but you want to fix them
● You have strong communication skills
● You are experienced with cloud environments and using desired state configuration to manage this (Terraform is preferred)
● Containerised workloads have no secrets for you
● You have experience with Kubernetes
● At least 3 years in a similar role running workloads on public cloud
● Experience with KNative is a plus
● Knowledge of Gitops / ArgoCD
