Deadline: 28.2.2019

For GetJenny the past year has been a year of growth both in business and technology. We are now looking for a DevOps Engineer to help us to deploy and maintain our systems and services to serve the growing customer base.

As DevOps you enable our business. This means we have a steady, scalable infrastructure, monitoring to follow its health and alarms alerting and allowing us to fix any issue ideally before it impacts our customers.

Your main responsibilities include deploying product updates, monitoring our infrastructure, identifying and preventing production issues. Your goal should be to ensure we execute and automate operational processes fast, accurately and securely.

As DevOps you choose and set up tools for making upgrades and changes as easy and safe as
possible through automation.

Your main goals and tasks include:

  • Reduce the time it takes to deploy a software release and consequently reduce the downtime due to maintenance interventions
  • Propose tests and set up tools to make sure they are always up
  • GetJenny infrastructure maintenance
  • Monitoring of the services: defining alarms, goals and related metrics to measure the status of the services
  • Enable the whole infrastructure topology (or part of it) to be deployed/tested/run off-site, on demand
  • Making sure we have the metrics to go to bed every night knowing the probability of being called is close to zero, but knowing that if something goes wrong we will be alerted before the customer knows it.

In particular, the following aspects of the software lifecycle must be addressed:

  • Choice and set up tools for making upgrades and changes as easy and safe as possible through automation
  • Maintenance deployment e.g. changes on the hardware infrastructure or the software architecture
  • Software update: new versions of the software
