Key words: Green field project, Java, Kotlin, Microservices, Kubernetes, Azure , Terraform, IaaS, Docker, Solace, Azure, Gitlab, Python / Go
We are looking for a Senior DevOps / Automation Engineer to own and automate CI / CD pipeline, use modern deployment tools ( and / or build custom ones) and make them work together, thus ensuring reliable deployment strategy based on IaC principles and best practices. This is a green field project which means you will have an opportunity to build something from scratch, implement your ideas, apply your expertise and creativity but also take responsibility for the entire DevOps, tooling and CI / CD agenda.
This position requires someone who is a bit of jack of all trades and an expert in some :) The project tech stack is Java, Kotlin, Microservices, Kubernetes, Azure, Terraform, Docker, Solace, Azure, Gitlab, Python / Go. So you should be comfortable and willing to work with this stack and pick up skills you don't have on the Go :)
The product itself is an automated algorithmic trading system for different commodities. The core 'foundation' team consists of top-class Fintech experts, quant and market analysts who will use their accumulated know-how to create a state-of-the-art platform. It's an ambitious and exciting technical and business start-up project - no legacy code, no mundane maintenance and outdated technologies, just pure engineering joy of creating a well-designed piece of software in direct communication and cooperation with end users. You will have real say in what and how is developed, not just follow orders from abroad, so real tech ownership and responsibility that comes with it.
The whole enterprise is backed up by some serious capital which removes any worries or uncertainty about the future and stability of the project. So you get the best of both worlds - excitement of a tech start up environment with the financial backing of a stable reputable organization.
Other key points that usually interest candidates:
Home office - for mature responsible and self-motivated engineers there are little restrictions when it comes to working from home. There is no fixed number of days you must be in the office, it is more an ad hoc principle. If there is an important team or design meeting it would be preferred for you to come in and then go back home to code away from home :)
Start date - ideally sooner than later:) But it can wait for a month or two for that great candidate.
