DevOps Team Lead

Job description

Our goal is to deliver a solid infrastructure by using automation tools such as Terraform to make the delivery of value more efficient and effective.
We are looking for a motivated DevOps Team Lead to join our DevOps team to configure AWS, deploy code to it, and keep it online. If you have team management experience with a background in AWS and Terraform, this role is for you!

You will 

  • Work with Software Development teams to understand the problems they are facing and he solutions they are using. Agree to some architectural standards about how applications are packaged, built and deployed.
  • Create templates, infrastructure as code and other automation to allow Developers to easily implement and manage the chosen solutions.
  • Work with Developers to help them move their projects to the new system and learn how to be owners of their code within this new environment.
  • Manage a small team of DevOps Engineer.

    Job requirements

    We're looking for people with:

    • You have 5+ years working experience operating production web applications on AWS.
    • You have 2+ year working experience with Terraform.
    • You have at least 1 year team management experience.
    • You are very comfortable around a UNIX shell, and have experience installing and running Linux.
    • You think like “Ops” when it comes to Security, high-availability and business continuity. Well managed access keys, and tight permission sets get you excited. Passwords in the clear lead to missing heartbeats.
    • You have solid experience using a monitoring system to visualize and make decisions about systems operations. Even better if you have built such a system.
    • You have solid production experience with containerization (Docker) and container orchestration.
    • You love working with other people, and are happy to support lots of engineers without “owning” anything yourself. This is about building DevOps culture and tooling. Not about taking Ops away from Dev.
    • You have recent experience working in a startup, small company, or other somewhat unstructured environment.

    Why should you join Sellics? We offer:

    • A talented, quickly-growing company and engineering team
    • A very well-located office in the heart of Berlin Mitte incl. a rooftop terrace with pool
    • Flat hierarchies with open communication
    • High level of responsibility and space to develop
    • Flexible office hours
