    institutions to face their biggest challenge: adapt to a connected digital world with a customer-centric vision.

    Our company specializes in making marketplaces for financial services. We do this from end-to-end, in a collaborative mindset: from ideation, pre-study over solutions development to the go-to-market strategy and product spin-out.

    We need your help. To meet our big ambitions, we are looking for people who want to stand out, do
    great things and create remarkable solutions for our customers. We need  talented and motivated IT professionals, who want to leave a legacy and help us shape the platform economy in the financial world.

    If you want to apply your skills to challenge the normal, collaborate with some great minds to push boundaries, and have some fun meanwhile … then you might be our next favorite colleague.

    What does it take?

    A lot. Besides being good, we need open minded, enthusiastic people. The following things will get you up and running just that wee bit faster:

    * Experience with today’s cloud-native DevOps best practices and technologies such as GitOps, Kubernetes, Helm, Istio, Prometheus, EFK and Jenkins X.
    * Knowledge of major cloud providers such as AWS, Azure and Google Cloud
    * The ability to work on topics in different stages of a project’s life-cycle
    * Experience with implementing, deploying and maintaining scalable and highly available solutions and keen to optimize all related processes
    * Ready to monitor CI/CD pipelines, environment availability and infrastructure usage
    * Strong analytical skills and the ability to quickly grasp a client’s non-functional requirements and translate them into fit-for-purpose set-ups
    * Eager to support and work closely with a team that builds front- and backend applications in Node.js, React and Java
    * Passionate about technology, or even better: financial technology
    * A proactive, agile and hands-on mindset and the ability to work autonomously
    * English is important, we use it a lot. Any other language you master is an asset
    * Always wanting to be up-to-date with the technology landscape

    What team will I join?

    You’ll join our cross-functional team of talented engineers, commitment to DevOps, but with a strong focus on projects’ development phases. While our architecture and infrastructure work great today, we need to keep up with the market. A next step is to expand the team with people who are more passionate about the Ops within DevOps.

    What do we offer you?

    * Work in a dynamic startup environment
    * The freedom to organize and structure your work and decide which technologies we will use
    * Develop your capabilities and launch your career in the fintech sphere
    * Work with the latest technologies
    * Work from home 1 day per week
    * 2 offices: Diegem and Antwerp. Both easily accessible by train.
    * A competitive salary and fringe benefits (including company car)
