  • You should be open to new and innovative approaches, be accepting of different opinions, to 360-degree feedback, and be ready to leverage other team members’ work and ideas.
  • You should seek to continuously improve.
  • You should be constantly developing yourself by acquiring knowledge from neighbouring teams as well as through self-instruction by exploring the Internet, and through meetups, conferences, and user communities.
  • You believe that empowering users through coaching and training, robust and secure automation, and easily accessible and practical documentation is the way to achieve success in DevOps.
  • A strong sense of ownership




  • 2+ years of hands-on experience with CI/CD workflows
  • Hands on experience working on configuration management tools such as Ansible, chef, puppet etc.
