DevOps Engineer AWS

Are you an engineer with passion for automation and public cloud on AWS?

You will fit perfectly in this “infra as a code” team. In this team DevOps and Site Reliabilty Engineers make us happy. As a team we’re keen on finishing our work properly. Together we dive into coding and scripting with, for example, CloudFormation templates, Bash, Ruby or Python. We’re getting excited when we can work with containers, serverless architecture and PaaS components, as long as it’s cloud native. Because we’re hungy for more, all of the team members love to learn everything about new technologies and discussing this during team meetings, a lunch, a beer and pizza sessions. As soon as we can we’d love to advise/implement these new technologies to our client projects.

We’re looking for DevOps and/or Site Reliabilty Engineers with this same passion. Engineers  who can live up to our motto “Lead the way”. Our ambition? To set up and maintain environments in the most cloud native possible setup. We do this by automating and capturing as much as we can in code.

In addition, we redesign environments and give advice on software refactoring to our customers: how can they move their applications and workloads to AWS in the most cloud native way? Following that, we continuously improve and optimize the environments within AWS together with our clients.

Will you use your skills to help us exceed our customers' expectations? Then come to work at Sentia as Cloud Engineer AWS and become a true Sentian!

The team

As DevOps or Site Reliabilty Engineers Engineer AWS you work in an enthusiastic, committed and highly skilled AWS experts team. This team is active within a variety of different industries and uses AWS services. We have designed our structure in such a way that each team is responsible for a portfolio of customers. And the mind-set we have is to automate pretty much everything and avoid repetitive tasks. We are always there to help you to achieve your goals and to exceed customers expectations

As soon as you begin working at Sentia, you will be assigned a buddy. Your buddy is a colleague who familiarizes you with your team, the systems, culture and way of working. You will also be introduced to the clients.

During the initial period, you will mostly be busy learning how we work. You will need to understand our standard of IaC coding, our deployment mechanisms and our operational processes. You will also work on preparing a number of releases, to learn our way of working, hands-on. Following that, you’ll also get to know all the customer systems, while participating in support and projects. In this way, you learn immediately about the environments used by your customers.

Luckily, we work with a clear process at Sentia and everything is clearly documented. You can also approach your colleagues with any questions you may have. Having become familiar with your customers’ environments, it’s time to go beyond supporting customers with fixes and troubleshooting.
