We are Arelion. You may not have heard of us; though, we are pretty sure you are using our network every day. As a Tier 1 Network provider, operating the most connected Internet backbone on the planet, we are quite passionate about what we do. If you peek under the lid, you’ll find all sorts of passionate geeks within; people who get out of bed each morning because they care for fiber cables, telco housing, routers, wavelength multiplex systems, and, even, software services. The one thing we have in common is our passion for the Internet and our honored customers.

We have taken a hybrid approach when it comes to IT infrastructure. Our applications and software services are running in AWS and our own datacenters located in two major cities in the EU. AWS is our firsthand choice. We apply some of the most modern technologies and concepts in our AWS environment, like IaC using Terraform and Helm to manage our EKS clusters. Automation is key for us, implementing CI/CD mainly using Github actions. Our monitoring solution is based on Datadog.

In order to let the Software Engineers focus on development projects, we are now looking to add two DevOps Engineers. Working with DevOps in the Software Engineering team will allow you to work closely with our Software Engineers and the Infra&Ops team to create and maintain the best possible environment for our applications. You will give us the best possible CI/CD pipeline, service availability, and proactive maintenance by mastering the components in our infrastructure domains. You need to have passion for IaC, Kubernetes, automation, monitoring, alerting, and continuous improvement. We’ll offer the right candidate to chance to work with us in a multi-skilled, cross-border team supporting a multi-national organization with demanding customers. We offer an open environment where you’ll be able to contribute, learn, and grow.

The main responsibilities are:

  • Automation of environments, tests, and deployments.

  • Continuous improvements in environments and platforms such as Kubernetes

  • Daily operations of environments and platforms

The main tasks are:

  • Implement and maintain automation of environments, tests, and deployments.
  • Collaborate with Software Engineers to improve and maintain the operating environment for our applications
  • Provide DevOps expertise in development and implementation projects
  • Set up monitoring and logging
  • Troubleshoot issues in applications and environments
  • Automate detection of anomalies and errors in a variety of components involved in our software solutions.

Our current remote work policy offers the possibility for employees to work from home up to three days per week.
