The “Kubernetes in the cloud” nerds

Welcome to the extraordinary world of System Operations, affectionately known as the “Kubernetes in the cloud” nerds! We are the masterminds behind the scenes, passionately building and maintaining a cutting-edge infrastructure. From keeping our platform at the forefront of technological advancements to supporting the innovative DevOps Team, we ensure a smooth sailing experience. Think of us as car mechanics, where the Engineering Department is working on the electronics of the proverbial car, we’re making sure the engine is running.

Our philosophy.

Our approach is simple: understand the problem, fix it with precision, and bid farewell to workarounds. With our commitment to open source, we stay in control, delving deep into our platform’s code to innovate and resolve any glitches. Embracing a micro-service approach, we unleash the power of independent development and deployment. We’re always at the cutting edge, eagerly adopting the latest technologies and updating our code, ensuring we soar above the competition.

Our tools.
These are a few of our favourite things…

“I love being part of a team that’s open to new technology, open source oriented, and dedicated to creating cutting-edge solutions.”

Christoph Hillje, DevOps Engineer
