Job description

As a DevOps Engineer at ORTEC for Communications your input will determine the future of our infrastructure.

Who we are…
ORTEC for Communications started in 2011 and is a fast growing, innovative  product that helps large companies optimise their internal communications  thereby increasing employee engagement. We provide a platform (web, app,  newsletters, narrow casting) that allows organisations to engage with their employees.

Our product is…
a global SAAS product. We work with big data and many users, all over the world. Customers like KLM, Bayer and the Dutch tax authorities use our platform to reach their employees with relevant news. Therefore, working with the latest technologies plays a major role. The team consists of software developers (including you), project managers, UI/UX designers and an IT service desk. The ambitious and challenging start-up environment requires us to work closely together as friends.

So, do you like working with the latest technologies, in a start-up environment, in an informal and ambitious team? Can we depend on you as our new team member? Then this is your next step in your career. Apply today!

We are looking for a DevOps engineer to work with us on the following tasks:

  • Improve current CI/CD tooling
  • Transition to a cloud native infrastructure (containerise our apps and deploy them to Kubernetes)
  • Improve our site reliability engineering practices (monitoring and alerting)
  • Assist with maintenance of current applications (mostly Node.js)

Our ambition is to build THE digital workplace tool that empowers every employee to get their work done and to feel connected to the company they work for. This vacancy is your chance to play a significant role in the development of our product. We are at the beginning of our cloud native transition so your input will determine the future of our infrastructure. As the team is small your actions and decisions will have immediate impact. If you love to make fundamental changes to production systems used by customers all over the world, this is the job for you!
