The position is located in our IT center in Brno but full-remote working might be an option, too.

What can you expect?

You will be contributing to our cross-functional product teams and advocate for observability, gradual changes, modern tooling and automation in our Kubernetes stack on OKD using GitLab CI pipelines. You will use EFK, Grafana and Prometheus to keep our system monitored and alert ahead of time if the service to our customers is suspect to disruption. Together with your DevOps colleagues you will solve challenging problems from cluster to application level and on the Azure Cloud. On top of this you can expect to: 

  • design, develop and execute automation scripts using open source tools
  • take ownership of our CI/CD pipelines and make them better every day
  • build tools, services and plugins to bridge the gaps in our current infrastructure
  • mandate blameless post mortems
