About the job
As a DevOps at Visma Nmbrs, you’ll work to assure that Nmbrs product infrastructure is secure, stable, and performing accordingly with the SLAs. Our product is on Azure.
We focus on solving problems from our team and our colleagues. That can be a bug fix or a new workaround implementation to give squads space and time to come with an outstanding patch. Calling a code red or a black one and lead them through the impact time and assure that the root cause is clear and next steps posted.
Depending on your interests and skills, you may be more focused on tooling or platform work, as well as other initiatives that exist through special committees (security, performance, others). Boundaries are fluid since people can switch between squads as well.

Investigating alternatives more efficient and reliable to scale up & down the majestic monolith.
Working closely with feature squads to integrate Identity Access and Management to protect the access to microservices resources.
Participate actively in current security audits and assessments.
Write a guideline about “How to manage app secrets on the Cloud” to which squads can apply.
A day at work
Every morning you start your day checking the monitors, logs, and the 24/7 channel and act on it.
Then you join the daily stand-up where you connect with your colleagues from the other locations, and you coordinate on the priorities and sprint goals. Your responsibilities will cover:
Set up, implement, maintain and provision our IT infrastructure and the delivery pipeline.
Collaborate with the other teams to apply and improve infrastructure guidelines and your squad members on solutions to new projects.
