This is what you tell people at parties 👋

At Sendcloud we have an all-in-one shipping solution, where we automate the shipping processes for e-commerce. With more than 25,000 customers throughout Europe, and soon beyond, Sendcloud is aiming to become the leading shipping solution worldwide. We have a high performing environment and we get rewarded for all of our wins. Together with Sendcloud, I am on a mission to empower businesses with world-class shipping.

What you will do in this role 🧐

As Senior DevOps Engineer, you will be working on the Sendcloud platform within the platform domain. Your work will be distributed between the requirements set by engineering teams, while still being able to contribute to the overall platform standards and improvements. Platform is used by our software engineering teams to build, test, deploy and run software themselves. You will be responsible for onboarding those feature teams into the world of DevOps, and guide software engineers on the importance of inclusion of non-functional requirements (observability, operations, deployments, security, etc.), with how to define their CI/CD pipelines, and assist them with software development tooling.

As a part of the DevOps team your goal is to make the product engineering teams fully independent and more productive with a self-service, scalable platform and related software development tooling. You will co-work with the software engineers from engineering teams, making sure they know how to use the platform, automate repetitive tasks, and taking their feedback into account for further improvements.
