DevOps Engineer

Are you a real problem solver who stays calm in the process? Are you excited by developments in infrastructure management and growth in DevOps skills? Do you look forward to an all-round position with responsibility? Then Digidentity is the place for you.

Full-time · The Hague, Netherlands

Your role

As DevOps engineer you don't really have to care what application technology we use, but you still do (it's Ruby on Rails). We deploy our applications to AWS cloud and our hybrid-cloud platforms (Kubernetes) that we maintain in-house.

From our DevOps Engineers, we expect stability, continuity and a forward looking attitude. You are specialised in IT systems maintenance but enjoy building new systems that prepare the business for future developments. You have experience building reliable and scalable systems and are capable of communicating with different teams in order to determine system specifications. You get a kick out of automating previously manual processes.

The IT Operations team is one of the most essential departments of the organisation, and therefore one of the most multifunctional ones. We are looking for people that we can invest in, with the intention of keeping them with us long-term.
