SUMMARY

We are looking for a working student interested in DevOps to join our team here at Rasa. You will be able to test your theoretical knowledge and apply it to real-world challenges. 

ABOUT THIS ROLE

As a DevOps working student at Rasa, you will work on improving and developing CI/CD pipelines and deployments based on Helm or Docker Compose. Our application is deployed on-premise by our customers and needs to run in different environments. In addition to these enterprise deployments, we also need to support a large community of developers relying on the large parts of our codebase which are open source. There will be lots of exciting learning on the job!

We do fundamental machine learning research, and we ship commercial quality software that puts it to use. We mostly work in Python, but dip into other languages when it makes sense to. We are a tight-knit team with a focus on exchanging knowledge and enabling each other to do our best. One of your responsibilities will be to ship these machine learning applications into production as well as enabling the team to do so on their own.

ABOUT YOU

  • You take pride in learning from teammates and enjoy constructive peer review in a respectful environment.
  • You're comfortable being lean and fixing problems without waiting for someone to tell you to.
  • You can effectively communicate what you’re working on - when you are faced with issues during your work you know when to reach out for help.
  • You’re interested in DevOps principles and practices.

Technical requirements

  • Experience working with Python or another programming language.
  • Experience working with a scripting language, e.g. Bash
  • The familiarity of deployment systems and container software (e.g. Docker, Kubernetes).
  • Experience in debugging and digging into code bugs.
  • Ability to wrap your head around new topics and diving into details.

THINGS YOU WILL DO

We’re a startup, so you’ll have to be comfortable rolling up your sleeves and doing whatever is required to support our mission. However, you can definitely expect to:

  • Develop features and work on bugs in our CI/CD environments.
  • Improve the user experience related to development operations.
  • Work on our open source projects alongside our large contributor base and community.
  • Work with driven people across all areas of the company—from marketing and business development to machine learning research and UX design—to create the tools to let all makers build AI assistants that everyone can use.

Navigate our tech stack: Python3, TypeScript, React, Redis, RabbitMQ, Postgres, GitHub Actions, Kubernetes, GCP among other technologies and frameworks.

DEI @ Rasa

With people from more than 20 nationalities and all continents working in five different countries, a gender ratio of nearly 50% in the male-heavy tech industry, and ages ranging from 21 to 60 years, our team is diverse in many aspects. But we believe there is much more we can do to make our company more diverse and inclusive and to contribute to a world that gives everyone fair opportunities.

To reach that goal, we have established a company target that 100% of roles have more than 50% diverse applicants. Recruiting is where diversity has to start. Of course, an inclusive company environment is necessary to attract diverse talent, and tracking and reporting our diversity metrics from the beginning will help us understand how we’re doing.

We are aware that diversity has many different dimensions, but to start, we will be tracking gender and ethnicity, as it is measurable and concrete. To that end, we have started to ask all Rasa applicants to anonymously share diversity information. To remove our own bias, this data is held completely separate from the application and will be held in the highest confidence.

At Rasa, we consider our work on diversity equity and inclusion to be an ongoing effort, and we welcome suggestions and comments. If you are happy to help us with our targets we would really appreciate you self identifying below.
