In this role, you’ll be working closely with our cross-functional teams in production, tying the parts together. You will ensure a healthy culture of DevOps methodology & thinking together with our technical leadership. You will be an integral part of our development, with focus on performance, security, scalability, high availability, and especially quick feedback in all parts of our development. The work will vary and will often cover many technical areas, but your primary focus will be on developing a tool chain and processes for continuous delivery and integration.
