What is the role?

We are looking for Java Developer with a true DevOps mentality to join our CloudStack team. Your main focus will be contributing to the Apache CloudStack project by developing and testing new features as well as automating all our processes

You will be working with a team of DevOps engineers from all over the world with curious minds who are excited about the challenges and responsible for building and operating Leaseweb’s worldwide private and public cloud platforms. In this position, you will contribute to the enhancement and maintenance of Apache CloudStack, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) open source project. Our work involves deep knowledge of hypervisors, networking and automation. Our team values openness and trust, proactive collaboration and knowledge sharing initiative, customer focus, and continuous improvement in the similar way Apache community does. We believe it is important to have fun team moments and are looking for a team mate to also spend some time with out of working scope. 

What you will do:

  • Responsible for developing and supporting the Apache CloudStack project mostly written in Java (using spring framework) and following API-first philosophy.
  • Together with your team you’ll actively contribute to maintain and deploy the team's applications in production environments.
  • Within the team you act as a true DevOps engineer helping us to close the bridge between operations and development even more
  • Collaborate with Leaseweb’s Product Engineering teams to define features, which we’ll give back to the open source community.
  • Responsible for the maintenance of development environments for the team members as well as the integration test environments (using CloudStack, Jenkins and Chef).
  • Work on automating new platform deployments and maintenance.
  • Participation in the 'on duty' rotation schedule.

What you need to be successful:

  • Experience with Iaas projects (e.g. CloudStack, OpenStack, etc.) is required
  • Solid experience with some of the following languages is required: Java/Python. It is a big advantage if you have commits to core components of open source IaaS projects (CloudStack,OpenStack, etc).
  • Knowledge of the Linux operating systems is required. Experience with Shell/Bash is an advantage.
  • Knowledge of virtualization technologies (such as KVM/QEMU, Xen) is required. API for managing platform virtualization like libvirt is a plus.
  • Knowledge and experience on basic Networking and Storage will be a big advantage
  • It would be nice to have experience on continuous integration tools (Chef, Jenkins, etc)
  • It would be an advantage to have experience on Git/ Grafana/ Prometheus/ Kubernetes/ Docker

On top of the technical requirements we think it is important that you love team work have good planning skills, logical thinking skills, problem solving skills and have an eye for detail.

Benefits include:
