DevOps Engineer at Praqma

At its heart, DevOps is about collaboration - working together to enable business success.

At Praqma we have a strong collaborative culture and invest heavily in developing our people. We are currently looking to hire two DevOps engineers to our Gothenburg office.

As a DevOps engineer at Praqma, you will collaborate and consult with some of the leading businesses in Scandinavia. Our business model is not like your average resource consultancy, we pride ourselves on providing consultants with deep expertise as engineers, but who also come as part of a team. You can read more about our principles and way of working in this article: Working at Praqma

About the position

A DevOps engineer at Praqma works closely with the customer to improve their development process. In practice this can mean setting up automated server provisioning and deployment automation for both production and test environments. It can mean setting up Continuous Delivery pipelines and build automation. The ambition is to train and mentor the customer’s own staff, so we leave them with the skills and knowledge to operate everything we set up.

Finest people of Praqma

Consultants with Praqma do not spend all their time at the customer. We invest a lot of time in training, attending internal and external courses and conferences. In addition you are expected to spend time on pet projects, reading books, listening to podcasts, researching topics that interest you, and writing blog posts.

Skills and experience

The below list of skills is wide-ranging and we are not expecting people to be expert with everything. We’re looking for deep experience and skill in a one or two of these areas, coupled with ambition and curiosity to learn some of the others. In each area the technologies listed should be seen as examples not exclusive requirements.

  • Software development: you may be skilled with Java, Python, C/C++, Ruby, Perl or Javascript.
  • System Administration: you may be experienced at managing a server park based on Linux, Windows or in the cloud with AWS, Azure or OpenStack.
  • Build Automation: you may have set up build systems using Jenkins or Go.CD together with Maven, SBT or Gradle
  • Configuration Management: you may be skilled managing Git servers, ClearCase, Mercurial or Subversion, together with Nexus or Artifactory.
  • Containerization and Virtualization: you may be experienced configuring Docker, OpenShift, Kubernetes, Virtual Box or VMWare.

The successful candidate(s) will join our Gothenburg Office, a relatively new expansion for Praqma - we aim to be four people by the close of 2017. We have interesting and challenging customer assignments waiting for the right people, and a wealth of support and experience to draw on from the other six Praqma offices around Scandinavia.
