Cloud Native Engineer

Germany
Engineering
Full-time
Container Solutions helps companies migrate to Cloud Native. Working together with our clients’ teams, we tailor and implement solutions that last, by focussing both on technological as well as organisational transformation. When companies like Google, Shell, and Adidas need help with Cloud Native, they turn to Container Solutions. 

Our people are innovative and curious. They join us to learn, collaborate, and share their knowledge. With close to a hundred colleagues, and offices in Amsterdam, London, Berlin, Prague, Warsaw, and Montreal, we are building an exciting future. Will you be a part of it?

About the role
As a Cloud Native Engineer, you’ll be in charge of shaping solutions for companies in the midst of both an organisational as well as a technological transformation. Working in small, self-managed teams, you’ll guide our clients towards creating and automating their cloud infrastructure. We are a vendor-agnostic company, meaning that you will get to apply a diverse mix of tools and services. You can work from home, only traveling to our Berlin office for 2-3 days per month. However, as a part of the job, the cooperation with our customers will require you to travel to their offices when needed.

What's in it for you?
Our biggest benefits are our people and our culture. We offer a diverse work environment where people are respected for who they are and a culture based on learning, trust, and collaboration. Our homely Berlin office is conveniently located in the center, in walking distance from Großer Tiergarten. You can also count on:
Budget and time for learning, personal development, certifications, and contributing to open-source projects
A competitive salary (aligned with your experience)
Full coverage of travel and commute
Unlimited books budget
27 days of paid leave
Possibility to work from home

What does it take?
We often build tailored, innovative solutions within complex and ambiguous environments. Therefore, having an inquisitive mind and the eagerness to explore is vital. On top of that, consulting with clients, which depends on asking the right questions and crafting solutions as a team, requires strong collaboration and communication skills. 

Must-have technical skills

An understanding of best practices and patterns in software development 
Infrastructure provisioning (such as Terraform, Ansible, Cloud Formation, etc)

A deep and demonstrated understanding of distributed systems, including containerised microservices and highly scalable web applications
Advanced (admin-level) knowledge of Kubernetes in production

Coaching and mentoring junior engineers


How to Apply
Drop us your CV and tell us, briefly, why you are applying. If we think you have what it takes, here’s how we will proceed:
We will first contact you to check some of the basics through a video chat. If you feel like you’d like to get to know us better, before entering the rest of the evaluation process, you are welcome to have lunch with us and chat with one of our engineers.
Firstly we would like to assess your critical thinking skills, attention to detail, problem-solving skills and in general your ability to learn and then use new information in a short period of time.
Next step is a technical challenge, which allows us to asses the must have technical skills.
The technical challenge is followed by an online personality assessment and interview. This measure enables us to discuss how you see yourself on a day-to-day basis and within the workplace.
A final stage is a structured panel interview with the engineering team to evaluate how well you are able to work collaboratively and to assess your technical decision making skills. 

If all goes well, we will extend you an offer, starting with a permanent contract with 3 months of probation.
