About the role

Part of being the best video solution is making sure our SaaS product cloud environment runs like clockwork. Our product team consists of 2 squads. As a DevOps Engineer, you would become part of the squad responsible for product APIs and microservices that process data, integrate with external systems and leverage different AWS services (SNS, SQS, S3, RDS, ElasticSearch, etc) for better data accessibility and internal communication between themselves. 

The squad is also responsible for core backend libraries and microservices used throughout the whole SaaS solution. Some microservices are developed on PHP but the majority of them are on GoLang, thus additionally to dev-op responsibilities this would be a great opportunity for you to learn GoLang in practice and use it to create new, fast and reliable microservices.

As such we are looking for someone with experience with containerisation (Docker) and container orchestration in a cloud environment (AWS). You will have a track record of working in an agile setup using CI/CD pipelines, and enabling product teams with better DevOps processes.
