The DevOps role in the team is driving exactly the design and deployment on the different infrastructures. It also understands developers’ needs and offers powerful and flexible dev environment in terms of service templates, re-usable services, operational services, CI/CD pipelines, etc. All of this is really challenging when we aim for full automation, while still coping with heterogenous setups and a mixture of different tools and technologies.

  • Communicate with IaaS providers to clarify requirements and address impediments
  • Ensure build-in observability capabilities in order to guarantee high availability, efficient monitoring and troubleshooting
  • Participate in team’s discussions and decisions; offer code reviews to peers
  • Identify any flaws in the applied processes, strive for continuous improvement
  • Assess and adopt new technologies, tools, new versions of existing software
  • Work according to the lean and agile principles


The position requires concept awareness of distributed systems, modern cloud architectures, micro-services, Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-service (PaaS), containerization, operating systems, networking, security, Infrastructure-as-code (IaC). On the practical side, qualifications in those technologies and tools would be appreciated:

  • IaaS providers like AWS, Azure, GCP, Ali Cloud

  • Experience with some of the tools like Consul, Istio, Apache Kafka, Apache ZooKeeper

  • Shell and system programming
  • Python
  • HashiCorp Terraform
  • HashiCorp Vault
  • CI/CD tools like Jenkins; Git, Maven
  • Monitoring cloud applications (Elastic, Dynatrace, Prometheus, CloudWatch, etc.)


You are not supposed to know them all. We don’t, either. Instead, we need you to adapt to the ever-changing environment and embrace any new opportunity, together with us. Therefore, we appreciate if you are:

  • eager to learn
  • resourceful in getting things done
