The position

As a DevOps Engineer in Digital Health your key contribution is to ensure end-to-end transparency, traceability, seamless and continues workflows. To achieve that you will be working with our developers, tech leads, and other IT staff overseeing the orchestration/scheduling/automation of code releases and execution of test to ensure that our software is ready to deploy.

In this senior position you will be setting direction for Continues Integration (CI) by providing input to our code development and reviews, our branching strategies, version control, source code management (SCM), practices for merging code and notifying on build status. You will be contributing to our ‘shift left’ concepts and help ensure that continued testing becomes part of defining the quality aspects of our solution. You will drive our Continues Delivery and Deployment (CD) by packaging repositories (artefacts) to facilitate deployments to (test, validation, and production) environments in an automated and efficient manner. You will also be part of establishing our collaboration portal for all IT staff and stakeholder (authors, reviewers, and approvers) involved in releasing our software.

The job invites to help bridge that operations team gets involved in the development process earlier and that developers become part of defining the configuration. The job activities also include establishing metrics for the entire production environment and for the DevOps processes to ensure optimal conditions for development, operations, testing, documentation, QA, and other personnel involved.

The above means that your day-to-day responsibilities will be around setting up pipelines (CI/CD), give input to coding practices and branch pull practices, setting up tools and artefacts, establish infrastructure as code, integrate to automated testing and documentation, manage incoming signals by monitoring and logging user feedback and feature requests, monitor app performance and crashes, and convey compatibility issues regarding new OS and new phone models.


You have a master’s degree in relevant field and hands-on experience working as a DevOps Engineer with Mobile Device Management (MDM) experience. You have a past in Mobile App development and have experience in at least one modern programming/scripting language (Python, C#, Go, JavaScript, Powershell). Ideally you have working experience maintaining lifecycle for a Smartphone App for both platforms plus backend.

You likely have hands-on experience with Azure PaaS and SaaS services for storage, logging and monitoring, auditing, and security services. You are likely comfortable using build servers and Azure DevOps. You likely have solid understanding of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery best practices. You are likely familiar with IaC and configuration management tools (Azure CLI, ARM Templates) and expert in using version control for code (Git). You likely have operational experience building and maintaining automated operational infrastructure. You might even be a certified Azure Solution Developer or have obtained some cloud platform certification (preferable in Azure).

Experience working in a regulated industry, or experience working in the medical device space like Software as a Medical Device (SaMD) is considered a great attribute. If not, then most important is that you are eager to embark on a journey where you will be granted a unique opportunity to learn and expand your skillset in a interesting niche environment where you will establish abilities in Continued Documentation and Digital Compliance.

You have a ‘can do’ mind-set required to try out new setups and solutions. You are known for your ability to understand complex technical matters, form an educated opinion and communicate these in a simple way to your stakeholders, so they can reach informed decisions based on your input. You can convince others to accept new concepts, practices and approaches and are excellent in communicating and handling stakeholders at all levels of the organisation, in different geographies and across cultures.

While your technical competences are important, you understand when it is needed to interchange between going very deep into a specific domain to inform yourself, and then zoom out and bring your learnings into defining the bigger picture. You are not expected to be an expert in everything, but you are curious by nature and enjoy accumulating knowledge, even in domain areas that are not technical in nature, as you understand that this helps you being the best DevOps Engineer and trusted advisor possible.

To succeed, it is crucial that you thrive with working in teams where you can inspire and motivate your stakeholders to take informed decisions. In addition, you must have strong work ethic and willingness to take responsibility to bring the best possible digital solutions to the market and you understand and value that you play an important part in making lives easier for people with diabetes and other chronic diseases. Since you will be working Globally you must expect some meetings to take place outside DK working hours and some travel activity.

Fluency in English (Oral and written) is a prerequisite.
