Wanted: DevOps engineer (AWS)

Design, build and run smarter. As a DevOps engineer at Blue Billywig you’ll do all three. We already have a stable infrastructure, but because our platform continues to develop, the underlying infrastructure must of course evolve along with it. To support this growth, we are looking to expand our DevOps team.

We are an internationally operating software company, proud of its Dutch origin. With great passion for our profession, we build an Online Video Platform completely in-house that is used by large organisations worldwide.

We have big ambitions, and to achieve them we are looking for a new colleague to join our DevOps team.

What you will do

In your role within Blue Billywig you’ll work together with our experienced development and DevOps team on our infrastructure at AWS. You will be responsible for this infrastructure together with your DevOps colleagues. You don’t have to convince the CEO when you propose big changes or improvements--you only need to convince your colleagues.

As a DevOpser you give advice on which parts of the infrastructure we need to tackle and how the infrastructure lines up with developments in the application. You also keep the existing infrastructure up and running and do your best to ensure that you spend as little time as possible on it.

Our tech stack will keep evolving as we move more and more towards microservices. It currently includes: AWS (EC2, Cloudformation, Cloudfront, ElastiCache, Lambda, RDS, Route 53, S3), Linux (Ubuntu), Ansible, MySQL, Solr(Cloud), Redis, TICK stack (Telegraf, InfluxDB, Chronograf, Kapacitor), Pritunl.

Who you are

Whether it's your second or fifth job, we're looking for talent. We don’t believe in labelling people as only one thing, and we'll gladly adjust your responsibilities to your ambitions and skill-set. Together, we’ll decide how you will perform best in this role. Do you recognise yourself in several of the following points?

  • You like continuous improvement and automation;
  • You would rather spend some time on a good solution than on a quick fix;
  • Monitoring alerts are a necessary evil for you, so make sure that monitoring is in order and only sends signals when necessary;
  • You are able to set up configuration management in such a way that you can roll out extra capacity with the greatest of ease or even fully automate it;
  • 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;
  • An experienced product 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 very good pension plan;
  • Attention to your career and personal development;
  • Cool parties and activities the year round;
    (Annual 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.

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. Our Online Video Platform allows customers to create, manage, and customise their own video content in-house. We enable our clients to reach their customers more effectively by personalizing their videos with interactivity.

Since 2006, we’ve grown into a video solutions market leader, which has resulted in a long list of customers, ranging from Ahold to AJAX and Nespresso to Intergamma. We’ve branched out to different countries and markets, and now English, Irish, and German names have been added to the list--amongst which are some of the biggest news sites in their markets.

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.
