More information about the team and our work
You will be working on the definition, design and implementation of our new automation frameworks for Kubernetes. These products for platform operators and application developers will provide a high degree of automation of complex operational tasks related to managing the complete lifecycle of applications, data services and/or entire Kubernetes stacks.

This encompasses, for example, the robust automation of the entire lifecycle management (provisioning, deprovisioning, scale up/down) of open-source data services such as PostgreSQL, Kafka, etc., and / or complete Kubernetes stacks consisting of many different extensions like service meshes, logging and metrics, etc.

The project is still in a very early stage, so you’ll have the rare opportunity to affect its design and architecture in fundamental ways, as well as to shepherd it from the coding of PoCs to production-grade quality.

If you think these are cool projects and what you’ve just read excites you, don’t hesitate to apply for this job, we look forward to hearing from you! 
Feel free to do that even if you match only part of the qualifications.
