What the job is about

The architecture is moving forward & Sofico is moving with it!

Do you have a keen interest in using Kubernetes? Are you intrigued by everything that goes on in the Cloud? Are you interested in sharing ideas and knowledge with your team whilst growing further in your expert role? Then search no more!

As a site reliability engineer (SRE) you create a bridge between development and IT operations by taking on tasks typically done by operations; Instead, such tasks are given to these types of engineers who use automation tools to solve problems by creating scalable and reliable software systems.

You will have a significant impact on the next generation of ‘Miles’. Which is an ERP software for automotive finance, leasing, fleet, and mobility management. It’s an end-to-end solution encompassing front-, mid-and back-office functions, that can be customized to the customers’ needs.  

You’ll set up, deploy, and manage the micro-services for different applications, for the customers but also internally. Some will be on-premise but others in the cloud.  

You will also:  

  • Further, implement our DevOps/Site Reliability processes and microservices

  • Automate deployments through the GitOps approach

  • Maintenance on our Cloud Platform (+ setting up monitoring, logging, ...)

  • Automate the setup of Kubernetes Clusters through Infra as Code (Terraform / Ansible)

  • Write/update automated pipelines in Jenkins or GitHub actions

  • Act as a SPOC for a set of internal Project teams

  • Advise on and contribute to the shift of legacy components. 

  • Research and experiment with modern technologies in this area to keep improving. 

  • Participate in information sessions to inform other teams about the design and setup.

  • Help educate (new) colleagues and customers

Your Interest and Skills

You can work and learn new things autonomously, as it is a small team working on a big challenge. But there are many possibilities for you to follow different courses and training, internal and external, to expand your knowledge. For example, you will be supported to become a Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA).  

A small team means that they also work very closely together, so you are a real team player.  

What else is expected: 

  • Experience with setting up, deploying, and managing micro-services using the following technologies

    OR you recently obtained your Bachelor's/ Master's Degree within IT and are interested in working with the following technologies:

- Helm & Kustomize
