What's your next step going to be? Tell us your story. We are ready to listen! For a large Dutch financial organisation, we are looking for an Azure Development Engineer with broad knowledge of Microsoft Azure including, but not limited to, Analytics, CI/CD, Azure DevOps, Security and Automation.

As an Azure DevOps Engineer you have an eye for simplifying the development cycle. You will work within a DevOps team and together you will ensure improvements for the customer. From developing new functionalities and quality tests to software code releases. For this you have a lot of knowledge of Azure and you use CI/CD and Azure development tools. Your solutions directly contribute to the customer's business processes.

Working environment

The development tooling department is responsible for delivering a state-of-the-art development environment to all of the organisations development teams in the Netherlands, Germany, France, UK and India. The scope of the development environment includes many tools, from classical on-premise tools to tools hosted mainly on Azure and SaaS solutions, such as Azure DevOps.

The department consists of 6 teams, each covering a part of the development tool portfolio. The functional scope is from designing and developing tools on workstations, to backlog management, source code management and CICD until deployments in production. The department supplies CICD reference pipelines and pipeline building blocks (templates) that allow development teams to easily compose their pipelines and consume data in the underlying tools. We do this for a wide variety of technologies that are used within the organisation, for example Java, Python and .NET.

What is expected from you

Our client is on its way to transition from on-premise to public cloud platform and to speed up this transition we need platform engineers with hands-on experience and knowledge. Are you getting energy by helping out other developers, working under pressure to solve blocking issues for them and guide them through the world of Azure DevOps pipelines? If your answer is yes, than read on!

All teams in the department work as DevOps teams and are equally responsible for both development, improvements and support. The CICD Pipelines team has their focus on helping customers (other developers in the organisation) to get their CICD ready on Azure in a fast & efficient way. Our service is mostly consulting. We help our customers to set up their CICD pipelines on Azure DevOps by organising hackatons and we have (almost) daily walk-ins where customers can come in with their questions, issues and requests.

Next to this, we support and maintain our easy-to-use reference pipelines and building blocks. We participate in triangles and circles which focus on either specific technologies or topics. Together with these triangles/circles and other teams we maintain, support and continuously improve the pipeline building blocks and increase the breadth, width and the level of compliancy of them.
