We are looking for a DevOps Engineer to join the Ocado Technology team based in Wrocław, Poland.


DevOps Engineer


So, you’re passionate about software delivery and running it in production. You’re skilled in software development but the infrastructure and operations have little secrets for you. You know perfectly well that the code can run it for you. You hate waking up at 2am to production failures and that’s why you have monitors for everything, and enough failover or self-healing setup so you can deal with it in the morning. You’re fine with rolling out code all the time because if anything unexpected happens, you have it covered and automated. You love to work with development teams and make sure that the tools they are using run fast and reliably. The ‘Continuous Delivery’ by Jez Humble & David Farley is your professional Bible.

Day to day work

Great, we’re looking for people like you who can help us build and operate infrastructures for software development and delivery. People who are technical experts and get things done by using their smarts and whatever tools make sense to get the job done. People who love to stand on the shoulders of giants to solve new problems and thrive in a rapidly innovating space.

Skills and Competences:


●       Make things work and get things done.
