Site Reliability Engineer l DevOps

Job description

Do you want to work on the infrastructure that powers one of the most visited websites in The Netherlands and make an impact on the lives of millions of people? Then you’re in the right place.

Funda needs the best developers to work on our high-traffic website – every day is a fresh challenge and that’s the thrill of it. Developing in the knowledge that millions of monthly visitors put their faith in you is like refuelling a jet fighter in mid-air or performing a pitstop on a Ferrari as it continues to race at 200 mph.

We’re looking for a Site Reliability Engineer who is a team player, and who tears down the walls. You create unity and ensure that everything keeps on running smoothly. ‘Supportive’ is your middle name, continuous integration and continuous deployment are your sophisticated tools.

Is that you? Read on to find out more.

Your job

Your work is based on two pillars – one is maintaining and innovating on our infrastructure, the other is supporting and being part of our dev teams to help improve reliability for our services. This involves working on different projects and at different levels simultaneously. Your main challenge for the next 6 months will be migrating towards a new CI/CD system (from Bamboo to Azure DevOps) and the containerising of our Windows services/applications.

Your team

You will join our infra team, aka SRE, aka DevOps. You’ll work with 7 Site Reliability Engineers (David, John, Matt, Richard, Floris, Maurits and Max), and one Service Owner. You will report to Brian, who will help you achieve your goals and help you grow as a professional.


Your profile

You are eager to work with the latest container orchestration tools such as Kubernetes, as we also host our infrastructure in the cloud. Your Windows experience speaks for itself and you are familiar with IIS, SQL Server and configuration management (we use Ansible).

You know very well how to maintain a balance between the speed of development and the stability of a production environment. You have this innate feeling about the right time to keep stakeholders and colleagues informed and come up with smart solutions for IT automation.

Next to that:

  • You have at least 5 years of experience working as a Site Reliability Engineer or similar role
  • You have hands-on experience with Azure, Terraform and Kubernetes
  • You can work with both Linux and Windows technologies
  • You have experience with Azure DevOps
  • You’re at your best working in an agile working environment using JIRA (or similar tool)

This is what we offer
Funda offers you one of the most challenging jobs in your field. Whether you work in the office or from home, we’ll make sure you’ll feel welcome at funda. On location, you and your colleagues work in the heart of Amsterdam with an unobstructed view of the IJ river and our own ‘funda square’. When you work from home, you’ll stay connected to your colleagues through Microsoft Teams.

You’ll be working with more than 140 great (international) minds, who will make you feel welcome from the start. To us, it’s only logical to take good care of our talents, and therefore of you. If you come to work with us, we offer you:

  • An excellent salary with an annual bonus scheme and 25 days off (and the opportunity to buy more)
  • Flexible work from home policy (hybrid)
  • Reimbursements for your phone, home internet, travel expenses, and gym membership
  • Pension plan contribution: 40% on us, 60% on you
  • WFH stipend (€2 NET per day that you work from home)
  • Learning budget to attend congresses and/or follow courses and classes
  • Mental health support - online calls with trained professionals to blow off steam, get some practical tips or just to lend you an ear
  • Heavenly chair massages 6 times a year (at the office, during working hours)
  • Fresh lunch every day by our in-house chefs (when you’re in the office).
