Location: Geldermalsen, Utrecht, Remote (max 40%) 

As an ambitious and technically focused company, we keep moving forward with innovation. We are looking for a DevOps Engineer who can help our team to build, run and manage the Ultimaker platform consisting of 3D printers and (cloud) software to support the full 3D Printing workflow. 

Does this sound like you? Are you looking for a working environment where you can be yourself? Then, keep reading! 

What will you be doing? 

As a DevOps Engineer, you will work closely with developers and product specialists to deploy and maintain services that help our customers to optimize their 3D printing workflows. You will focus on the cloud part of our platform, that is implemented as a Python microservices architecture running on Kubernetes in the Google Cloud Platform.   

You will improve the developer’s workflows through proactive evaluation of suitable tools. You will be responsible for the smooth operation of (online) services and will react quickly to incidents and downtimes. You are self-sufficient and think outside the box and actively engage with your team to get the work done. 

In this position, you will be: 

  • Working intensively with your Scrum team members 
  • Joining the daily standup meetings and demos 
  • Defining a vision on how to effectively run and scale our services and implementing it

What will your day in the office look like? 

During the morning standup, you touch base with your team and discuss who will do what and whether someone needs your help. You keep an eye on the production systems and check the metrics for performance issues. After working on designing the new CI system, you merge a PR from a colleague on GitHub. You always have a terminal open with several SSH sessions as well as a browser tab with the documentation wiki. Over lunch in the canteen, you hear about a cool new 3D model. You plan to 3D print it later at home. You have a meeting with a couple of developers to discuss the functionality of a very exciting new service.
