Please discuss the working pattern requirements for the role you are applying for with the hiring manager.

Interacting with senior IT and business personnel at both Director and Managing Director level

What we’re looking for:

Experience as a DevOps engineer or software engineering role with DevOps focus

Solid experience with Docker, building & deploying services on Kubernetes and with REST, Kafka, Solace, microservices-based architectures

Must have Jenkins, Maven, Gradle and GitLab or GitHub CI/CD experience

Skills that will help you in the role:

Where will you be working?
Our Prague office is based in the financial centre of Prague. We are part of the Operations and Technology Division, and as such, we try our best to stay at the top of our technological game. However, the technology itself is not the most important thing. What matters the most to us is the way our ingenuity can help provide better service to our customers and make life easier for our employees.
