Blue Billywig is a great organisation to work for with an enthusiastic team. We love working together to build and improve our Online Video Platform.

.. and we have big ambitions for the future but to achieve them we need you!

The DevOps team needs to transform. Our two main DevOps engineers also serve as our architects which is something we seek to change. You would initially join the team as the third Devops engineer but our expectations would be that you build your own team over time. Depending on your talent, drive and experience the forming of such a team could be around the corner or take a little longer.

The DevOps team is part of our “Core development team” which consists of both experienced engineers as well as talented starters.Our tech stack will keep evolving as we move more and more towards microservices. It currently runs on AWS using EC2, Cloudformation >> Terraform, Cloudfront, ElastiCache, Lambda, Aurora & Route 53. Our EC2 machines all run Ubuntu and we have a number of tools to keep everything in control (e.g. Ansible & Icinga)

Work within a team of experienced media professionals

Who you are

Whether it’s your second or fifth job, talent is the main differentiator when choosing our next team member. Unfortunately this is not a starter role.

We don’t believe in labelling people as one thing, and we will gladly adjust your responsibilities to your ambitions and skill-set. Together, we’ll decide how you will perform best in this role.

  • You live and breath continuous improvement and automation;
  • You would rather spend time on a good solution than on a quick fix;
  • You operate at a higher education level both professionally and intellectually;
    (not necessarily a degree)
  • You have passion for your profession and a sense of responsibility;
  • You live in the Netherlands and speak fluent English and/or Dutch.

What we offer

  • An accessible, non-hierarchical organisation without all the bureaucracy;
    (no convincing the CEO on big changes, just your colleagues)
  • An experienced development team that wants to help you become even better;
  • The invincible feeling of being part of a successful team and growing international organisation;
  • A good pay-check including a pension plan;
  • Attention to your career and personal development;
  • Cool parties and activities the year round like the yearly ski-trip, parties, team events but also competing in sporting events together;
  • Our caterer John will provide you with fresh food and fruit on a daily base;
  • And of course a mobile phone and laptop (Macbook Pro & iPhone);
  • .. and much more. We’ll tell you all about it during your first interview.
Deniz en Marco aan het werk

Who we are

Blue Billywig was founded in 2006 with the idea that the entire video publication process should be easier to manage and perform better. Video use on websites was then far from standard at the time and far too often of mediocre quality.

We offer an Online Video Platform that allows customers to manage their own video content.
Actually a kind of YouTube, but better & aimed at companies. Our wide range of features range from video content management, hosting and adaptive streaming to monetization. Using our studio, customers can create interactive videos themselves.

We have managed to onboard an impressive list of clients that we’re proud to work with. From Ahold to Ajax and from Nespresso to Intergamma. But English, Asian, Irish and German names are also increasingly appearing on the list, including the largest news sites in these countries.

Are you the Devops Engineer we’re looking for? Let us know! You can send your resume and motivation to to the attention of Erik Pluijmen.

Acquisition based on this vacancy is not appreciated.

PS. We can work it out

Our most important job requirement is to be able to picture yourself as part of the team and thrive with us. If you don’t meet every requirement, we encourage you to apply anyway. You might be just the person we’re looking for.
