We work hard to make sure we quickly adapt to new developments. We work together and transform new insights and technological innovations into powerful solutions for our customers.

What does a regular day look like?

You will start to be working on implementing solutions that your team has planned. This will be mostly done using docker for our next generation cloud products. During the day you may be asked for support on complex cases together with our support engineer. Our support is helping our customer teams with daily tasks and issues that the teams encounter. You will help them explain the technical properties of the products you implement and provide points where complex issues might be located. The learnings you take from this you bring back to the container landscape you help develop.

Your goal is to reduce our support tasks and automate processes and implement infrastructure improvement! Challenging right? To achieve this you gather input from the programmers and you initiate a project for improvement.
