Lead Kubernetes Architect

Imagine a future where you use your Kubernetes and cloud expertise to drive the way we will scale our microservices architecture  

Join us in this role where you’ll be a key driver in the team of K8s practitioners, focusing on company-wide adoption of the latest tech in container orchestration. You’ll pave the way for a scaled K8s architecture and animate an empowered community of end-users and maintainers of clusters. We are in the midst of moving from on-prem to cloud infrastructure. This is an exciting opportunity to make an impact by simplifying and automating the workflows of a motivated collective of developers.

Welcome to Platforms, Integration and Data IT Product Line

You’ll be part of Architecture & Technology Competency Centre where you, together with your colleagues, will get inspired by each other and your diverse expertise. Operating in an agile setup, you’ll be assigned to the Kubernetes team, orchestrating central K8s governance and development. You’ll be heavily involved in the creation and delivery of the architectural runway. Be prepared to share your passion for cloud with a team of hands-on developers and an application architect – being their voice in the company. We offer flexibility and value the opportunity of being onsite at our office regularly to form a sense of community.

You’ll play an important role in:

  • setting and driving the direction for our DevOps platforms transformation in the whole IT organisation and beyond, in close cooperation with architects in cloud, security, and infrastructure teams
  • providing K8s and microservices expertise and guidance to our community of practice by inspiring and coordinating new and ongoing initiatives in fields like automation, security, and tooling
  • strengthening our community of cloud architects and functional specialists by sharing your experiences and generally contributing with relevant perspectives on the cloud architecture
  • identifying and maturing organisational improvements to be prioritised for implementation within CoP and further developing strong stakeholder relations
  • supporting the continuous delivery together with the DevOps teams.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • are a team player with strong technical skills, motivated to drive the K8s platform agenda in close co-operation with the business
  • have proven experience deploying and managing Kubernetes and working with Cloud providers, preferably with Azure, incl. experience with infrastructure as a Code
  • have extensive knowledge of at least one language such as Python, Go Bash, or PowerShell and know good programming practices, e.g., working with Git, pull requests and applying good programming patterns like DRY
  • have documented experience with CI/CD pipelines, preferably using Azure DevOps, where knowledge of best practices relating to security and automation would be a plus
  • have a deep, hands-on understanding of microservice and event-driven architectural patterns where knowledge of enterprise integration patterns and technologies within the integrations area will be a welcome addition
  • experience with Operational Technology environments, the Purdue network model, and related security implications would be a plus.
