Careers

DevOps – Site Reliability Engineer (SRE)

Because Antidot operates its own SaaS solutions, we are strong believers in the DevOps and Continuous Delivery strategies. Our Site Reliability Engineers (SRE) develop and operate software that automate system admin tasks.

Tasks

  • Within an agile team, you contribute to developing the infrastructure that is used to operate Antidot’s software solutions, and to keeping it up-and-running.

  • You provide to developers all the information they need to understand how to use the infrastructure. You work closely with product engineering teams to improve the operability of solutions.

Challenges

  • Do everything you can to have nothing to do! If needed, spend 3x more time but make sure you won’t have to do it again.
