DevOps Operations Engineer - OutSystems | Coimbra, Portugal
Are you into Operations and like to work closer to Development? Do you want developers to ask you how they can improve their apps? You like to solve incidents together and plan your work with them as one team? We look for that engineer to make the move from cloud Operations to 24x7 DevOps.
Vopak recently decided to rebuild their core systems, applying the OutSystems platform. We are rapidly replacing our legacy with Outsystems applications, globally. Meanwhile we aim to provide a stable environment and automate Operations where possible. Although TAM is performed by OutSystems and Amazon, we have Operations people in our DevOps teams. Examples of our Operational challenges are environment management, set up monitoring & dashboards, secure authentication, data replication, log-file analysis & alerting, disaster recovery and performance management.
Work for the world of tomorrow
Royal Vopak is the global market leader in storage and handling of bulk liquid products. At our 67 terminals in 25 countries we can store over 34 million cubic metres of oil and chemicals. Software plays an essential part in increasing the safety and efficiency of our terminals. With the rise of the internet-of-things and data analysis our field is about to get very interesting. We prefer not to fall in line – we create the line; DevOps collaborates with the Vopak innovation Lab to run Proof of Concepts and pilots for new technology and applications.
