  • Technical Implementation: You thrive on technical challenges and are not afraid to personally implement parts of the architecture and work on the infrastructure.
  • Knowledge Sharing: You will serve as a coach and knowledge sharer for our internal colleagues, sharing your expertise in all aspects of hybrid cloud/cloud-native technology.

Your Profile:


  • Possessing more than 2 years of practical experience with kubernetes
  • Hands-on experience in cloud and cloud-native technologies
  • Exhibiting over 2 years of practical experience with Infrastructure-as-Code solutions such as Terraform, CloudFormation, or Crossplane.
  • Holding a completed technical degree or an equivalent qualification.
  • Fluent in negotiating in English.
  • Embracing a strong team-oriented mindset and a willingness to collaborate.

Nice to Have:

  • Experience with Terraform would be advantageous.

  • Certifications in cloud platforms (AWS, GCP, Azure) and Kubernetes (e.g., CKA from the Cloud Native Foundation) are a plus.
  • Solid understanding and commitment to the GitOps methodology.
  • Experience with microservices architectures within Kubernetes is desirable.

What We Offer:

  • You decide how, when, and where you work – whether it's from home, in one of our modern offices in Düsseldorf, Eschborn, Wismar, or anywhere else in Germany.
  • Windows, Linux, or Mac? Work on the machine and OS of your choice.
  • Android or Apple? You have the choice for your company phone, even for personal use.
  • Certify yourself, continue your education, pursue your career goals, and build the necessary knowledge for your success with our support.
  • Our regular Inside Sessions provide you with deep insights into our focus topics and solutions, as well as current technologies and methods.
  • Flat hierarchies, open doors, and ears for your concerns, suggestions, and what matters to you.
  • An employer-financed job ticket in NRW and the Frankfurt metropolitan area.
  • JobRad (company bike) and free employee parking at our locations.
  • Employee Assistance Program with MeinEAP for all life situations.
  • Employer-financed company pension scheme.
  • Plenty of coffee, tea, water, and a variety of (un)healthy snacks in our kitchen.
