What You'll Do

Imagine a situation where you have hundreds of engineers build and pushing microservices into a highly available SaaS platform built on a cutting edge technology stack.

Imagine keeping that platform running and scaling it infinitely across multiple geolocations, cloud providers

Imagine leading a team of stellar DevOps engineers who are highly motivated to not just keep this platform running, but are constantly experimenting on how to make it better, what new technologies to adopt and how to continue to evolve the platform and roll out the infrastructural modernization without customers not even noticing a glitch

Imagine a world which is ready to shift left and is on the brink of a major cultural shift to a true DevOps model

That world is waiting for YOU. Do you want to be that person? If yes, lets chat
