Our cross functional team, which is mixed with financials quant engineers and polygot software developers, is extending its competence in the field of automation and platform engineering.
You will be expected to develop and iteratively improve our software delivery process using the latest technologies which lets us to get our product faster and safer to production.
The applications of our product are distributed as Docker images which requires frequent attention in order to deliver and run up-to-date, lightweight and safe containers in coherent fashion.
You should be able to implement a containerized CI/CD workflow which performs the following tasks:
code quality checks of multiple languages (Python, Java and more might coming)
security scans/check of libraries and docker images
testing latency and throughput of different applications on different platform (Python, JVM)
asynchronous integration testing
aggregating metrics and results of all phase of CI/CD steps and setting success constraints based on requirements
In terms of monitoring you should be able to define metrics and implementing them on Prometheus/Grafana.
You will need to provide support distributing apps into our production environments at clients/partners and work with their platform engineers.
Working with the developers you will need to implement an effective configuration management solution so our applications and becomes and stays completely environment independent.
You would not be working alone. We make decisions together as a team and we implement the solution with the same responsibility.
To be a successful candidate, you must fulfil the following requirements:

Knowledge of JVM based languages
Experience with managing python environment with venv/virtualenv/conda
Broad understanding of automation tools like Ansible
Knowledge of datastores (SQL or NoSQL)
Knowledge of distributed messaging/streaming systems (Apache Kafka, Apache Flink) is big plus
Knowledge of Prometheus/Grafana
