The product development team currently consists out of 16 members and is expected to grow significantly towards the end of the year.

You will be involved in different projects to ensure easy setup of Docker based development environments, expand our pipelines in GitLab and optimise ease of use and cost for our K8s based infrastructure.

Our platform is built on modern technologies like Vue.js, Node.js, and Laravel. For testing we use Jest, Cypress and PHPUnit. We work with VMs and Kubernetes Engine on Google Cloud Platform and run GitLab for CI/CD. You will join a highly skilled team of developers (and designers) who enjoy a technical challenge and care about maximising product value and user experience.

Your main responsibilities:
* Make our Docker based local development environments dead simple to use
* Expand our testing and deployment pipelines on GitLab
* Manage our projects(s) on Google Cloud Platform and look for opportunities to reduce cost or improve performance
* Move more and more towards infrastructure as code
* Keep improving things to work towards continuous deployment
* Guide developers and create a scalable approach around running services locally
* Contribute to a great engineering culture with a focus on scalability, * To start with, our internal recruiter Sam will contact you to find out more about you and your work history
* Then you will have an introductory talk with our CTO, Badr Eddial. He will focus on the team fit and your general knowledge. This round will be conducted via Google Meets. If this round is successful, you will have another interview with our Head of Product (Kristof) and a lead developer to dive deeper into your experience and ensure a good fit.
* Finally, if all seems good, we will finalise your offer and send it out to you!
