SRE / DevOps Engineer

Join us at the start of our journey towards establishing DevOps in Signicat!

About the position

Join Signicat Trondheim at the start of its DevOps journey and help defining the practices that will guarantee the operational stability our customers look for.

You will discover that we have plenty of experience to share when it comes to classical operational practices - focus on customer from the operational side of things is high.

You will also see that we have a lot of automation already in place to grow a new operational function focusing on automation. CI/CD, terraform and Kubernetes are things you will encounter at Signicat.

DevOps will be defined around SRE practices and we are looking for both staff with operational experience and a passion for automation as well as for developers interested in deployment and operational questions. SREs will be in contact with our products through collaboration with feature teams, helping them better deliver and operate their systems on our cloud infrastructure.

Does that sound interesting? Contact us!

About you

We are looking for persons with a software engineer mindset — people enjoying puzzle solving.

But unlike feature team developers your passion should be for operational problems, not customer facing functionality. You will help feature teams both when they design their systems, making sure they have good operational properties (e.g. observability), and when they release them by implementing reliable deployment pipelines.  Being a good team player and collaborator will therefore be important.

Finally you need to have strong customer focus as you role is all about guaranteeing that they have a great experience of our services! You will make sure the feature teams also have this focus, for example by promoting good incident management routines, training them in monitoring or tip them about abnormal behavior of their systems in production.
