You will be working in a PostgreSQL team which is mainly divided over Breda and Munich. The biggest part of the team is located in Breda. The team uses DevOps, Agile, Scrum methodology to manage operations and projects. All the work is done from Breda office or via home office and occasionally it’s necessary to travel to Munich.
Purpose of the function
The PostgreSQL environment is setup in a very complex landscape with over 4500 databases. The main focus is on the operation of the environment which is based on virtual machines. The virtualization environment is managed by another team, so your focus is on the Linux VM’s themselves. In the near future a new platform (Cloud oriented) will be chosen to setup the next environment.
Tasks that you can expect are based on day-to-day third level Linux operational topics which are logged into our IT service management platform and (short) projects such as, migrating, optimizing storage usage, operating system patches, etc. etc.
