You want to conquer the cloud world and shape the future of Europe with us STACKITEERs? Great! Then STACKIT is the right place for you. Our vision is ambitious: An independent Europe - digital, leading. As a cloud and colocation provider, we build the secure infrastructure for this. With our server locations exclusively in Germany and Austria, we offer both the Schwarz Group, which we belong to, as well as external customers a European alternative to international cloud providers.
As a committed STACKITEER, you are part of the STACKIT Products division. This is where our products and services are developed, tested, and improved - before they are placed on the market by the STACKIT Go2Market division.

  • You support the development of a high-performance cloud platform with a focus on the load balancer service
  • You are responsible for the operation and further development of the load balancer service in the STACKIT Cloud
  • You ensure efficient automation and continuous optimization of the technical processes
  • You create and maintain the professional documentation as well as the connection of monitoring and logging for stable operation of the solution
  • You are part of a motivated agile team that always strives for improvements and continuously develops itself (and the products)

What You’ll Need

  • You are a team player and have ideally already worked in an agile DevOps team for some time
  • You have a passion and enthusiasm for new technologies and topics related to modern network architectures and cloud services
  • You have already worked with cloud technologies and infrastructures
  • You are familiar with CI/CD pipelines, DevOps and Infrastructure as Code
  • You have in-depth experience in the areas of microservices, network-technology/-infrastructure, security and cloud solutions
  • Ideally, you have initial knowledge of setting up and operating load balancer solutions (e.g. Envoy, HA proxy, NGINX, F5)
  • You convince us with your scripting and programming experience, especially in Go, Python, Bash and ideally already have experience in the development of APIs and Kubernetes controllers
  • You already have several years of experience with virtualisation and containerisation environments
  • You have successfully completed a degree in IT or have a comparable qualification
  • You have a good command of German and English

What You’ll Receive

We are a diverse, international team of experts who have their heads stuck in the cloud but are otherwise firmly on the ground. Our highly motivated tech enthusiasts, product strategists and creative minds look forward to receiving your application if you identify yourself with us:

  • Our environment: A young brand with an agile mindset on the shoulders of the Schwarz Group, which also includes the retail chains Lidl and Kaufland
  • Our mindset: Open doors and flat hierarchies, fresh ideas and impulses are just as welcome as thinking outside the box
  • Our flexibility: The option of working at our locations in Heilbronn and Berlin or - if the area of responsibility allows it - remotely up to 5 days per week
  • Our team: Diverse and multicultural, everyone contributes their own strengths. We move mountains together and constantly improve our portfolio
  • Our promise: An attractive salary, 30 days of vacation and numerous opportunities for further development
